Are 2 RX360's enough?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Would 2 RX 360 rads be enough to cool a 980x, 6990, and 6970?

I've been wondering because the Xigmatek elysium can hold 2 rx360's without losing fans or the top bay. Initally I was wanting to have a 420 or 480mm rad on the top but I don't think that would fit without losing a bay and fan.

Yup, That should be more than enough, plus it should give you that extra headroom for some overclocking.

Yes, it will cool them fine. I run those rads now with my current system.

If I were to use a 420mm rad such as the black ice sr1, how much better would my temps be?

Yeah 2 rx360 will suffice. Just make sure your pump can handle it. 1 420mm rad or 2? I think 2 rx360 will be better than 1 420mm that's if you have room for 2 360

I have a 990x, 3 480's, motherboard block all on 2 360's and honestly the air coming through isn't even that hot. I was expecting it to be a lot worse. A single 420 will perform worse, i.e. higher loop temps = higher cpu/gpu temps, but you can get away with it depending what overclocks and performance you want vs fan noise and pumps. The higher water flow and higher air flow means less radiators are needed for the same amount of heat dissipation, so if you're running dual pumps and push pull, the 420 will be pretty decent, bear in mind the sr1's need high speed fans to really show a good performance boost in comparison to equivalent sized rx rads.
