New Build with W/C. Looking for advise - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
Okay, i've switched up to the GTX570 and the Sniper RAM.

When I upgraded from my old 19" monitor that was like 1280x900 or something like that to the Samsung that is "1080p" the ol' 8800GTX about died, there was no more running even WoW @ Max.. Since I'm going to start playing more graphicly intense games I suppose the 570 will be worth the extra few dollars upfront.

At what point are RAM liquid cooling solutions recomended? I've never delt with RAM timings and settings all that much.. I think it would be neat to incorporate it into the loop though... Maybe one day

I've never seen a reason to do it other than show. All you need is to get nice ram with high MHz and low timings and enough air flow though your case.

After a couple days of finely tuning my build list and doing a lot of research, ultimitly expanding my budget >.< I have one question. Just for extra reassurance...

Will the RX360 radiator fit on the top of the HAF932 case without case modification? (Just a push setup)

Yes the RX360 will easily fit. I had an rs360 with plenty of left over room.

What block should I get for a GTX570?

Updated plan :
Case - Cosair 800d
PSU - COSAIR 750
MOBO - ASUS P8P67
RAM - G.Skill Sniper Low V Not positive on this as reviews are iffy when actually oc'd
CPU - i5-2500k (Shooting for a stable 5.0ghz)
GPU - GTX570 EVGA
SSD - OCZ Solid 3 120gb
Mass Storage - Hitachi 1.5tb 7200rpm (Will probably expand to several for RAID in the future)
h20 kit - RASA 750 RX360

I'm still undecided on a new monitor/mouse/keyboard and fan types... It's going to be a sad day for my bank account. That much, I do know...

I got everything last week and put it all together, no real problems (thankfully). Everything seems to be working okay. I have noticed that the CPU temps are a bit higher than I was thinking they would be.

my loop is set up RES/PUMP --> RX360 RES ---> CPU ----> GPU ---> RES/PUMP
I am getting low 30's idle and 40's full load at stock clock with the 2500k (3.3ghz) when OC'd to 4.6ghz I'm idle at upper 30's-40's and Full Load at 55c on the highest core.

Does this seem normal?

Also, the GPU temps are reading 27c and I'm using everything that comes with the XSPC 750 RX360 kit and an EK gpu block.
