radiators rx 360 and rx 260

post #1 of 17

Is an RX 360 x1 enough to cool 2 GTX 580 SC with mild to high OCs ?
Is an RX 260 x1 enough to cool a 2500k/2600k with a 4.5-5.0 GHZ OC?

RX360 should be enough for two 580s and your cpu. Your sb and 580s do not run as hot as their predecessors. Adding another rad, like the RX240, will help too but don't expect a huge difference.

What?? The 580's produce just a few less watts than the 480. The 580 'seems' to produce less heat because it uses a vapour chamber.

lol my single 580 with a pretty low 10% overclock gets up to 95c sometimes in games like bfbc2. NM is hot, although those temps will go down now with fall approaching. That is the only reason i was considering putting the cpu on its own rad.

Oh and to your questions:

Yes
Yes

With proper fans as well.

I will more than likely go with just push for the intial install and then P/P later on if i think i need it.

Anyone reccomend a good fan controller and a pump/res combo ?

I had a i7 950, three 470s, and a mb on one rx360 and my gpus maxed out ~ 55-60c. Most stock coolers suck, that's why you still see high temps. My caymans on the stock cooler max out ~ 70-95c depending on the fan speed. On water they max out ~40c. The gf100 were notorious heatmonsters and the new revised 5xx series made a major improvement in heat and power consumption. My suggestion is good enough for op setup, he wants more, so be it.

How much better does the RX360 perform compared to the RS360? I'm planning on sticking my 6950 under water soon now that I have my CPU there...

It's an addiction...a sickness.

single RX 360 is pushing for both CPU/2xGPUs (high OC) like 580's you can run all of it of single 360 but your temps won't be great or you would need to crank up your fans ,360+240 is just right for your set up @800~1200RPM

RX~RS 360@ 10º Delta is about 125W difference @1400RPM

I have read numerous people say it is quite a bit better due to the low fin count, coupled with some good low rpm fans it seems to cool quite nicely.

I am good on the rads, just wondering what would be a good enough pump to get this flowing, i would like it to be pretty quiet, although i am used to noise becuase of my 580....
