XSPC 240RS enough for 2500k/5850?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
simple question i hope. I have a XSPC 750 RS240 kit. my i5 2500k is OC'd to 4.9 right now. My 5850 is stock right now but temps are pissing me off so i wanna lower them. Would my stock XSPC kit run it ok? Another question is i do have a 2nd res/pump combo. would it be worth it to get a 120mm rad and a block just for the gpu? or would it be better to just add it to my loop(also cheaper). Thanks

We need more details.

What are your load temps for CPU and GPU? Also what is your ambient temp?

load temp on CPU is 57C. GPU on stock cooler is 85C+ ambient is usually around 20C

The only thing heat will tell you is how adequate your current cooling solution is. The correct way to size up a rad is to find out how much wattage your setup is consuming under load. My opinion is the rad in question might be a bit scant for your setup, but a good block and pump could compensate.

The rs will hold. SB is not a heatmonster and your Cypress as well. You'll get far better temps on that gpu on water and maybe a minute bump in your cpu temps. But if you can fit a 120mm rad or just go w/ the RX240 then that will help with temps. In the mean time, make sure you have some good fans if you plan to add the gpu to your loop.
