Watercooling temp question?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
hi, while im waiting for somebody to buy my case so i can finnish my new build i just want to ask a quick question.

I will be useing 2 480mm RADs to cool my 970 and my 2 470s and would like to know what temps I should expect bearing in mind that the 2nd RAD is useing the air from the first so it will be warmer.

Thanks

I get 35-45c all day with a 980x (2) 470s and 1 BlackIce 360 rad. Did I mention it's 100f everyday. It's all about the fans and controller with me.

Depending on fans and ambient temps, you should be arctic.

no doubt. However, it'd be quite smart to run the water from the rad getting 2nd hand air -> rad getting firsthand hair. (this will optimize your cooling).

It's interestingly enough quite similar to how fish gills optimize oxygen intake... who knew bio could be so useful bahahahah

You're running a 970 and SLI 470s off of a single 360mm radiator?? Those have to be some beast fans if those are load temps. I have two 360mm radiators with one have three Scythe Ultra Kaze 3000 RPM and the other one with push/pull medium speed yate loons and i'm getting an idle 42C on my single stock 470. Load temps are 60C in a room that is about 80F

It is hard to estimate what kind of temps you will see. Lots of factors to consider, the biggest two being ambient air temps and your chip. All chips are different, and some run hotter than others.

You will definately see better temps if you take that second rad and move it so it is getting outside air by having both rads set to intake seperately.

Also some people think that adding more radiator to a loop will exponentialy increase cooling performance. This is not the case. Your setup will only dump so much heat into the loop and once you hit that limit the only benefits seen from adding more radiator would be the fact that you can decrease fan speed thus decreasing noise.

That being said, with 2 480mm radiators, you should be able to run your fans at a fairly low speed which will keep noise levels to a minimum.

Any idea on what radiators you will be using? I recommend the xspc rx480 as it has 8FPI which is optimized for low fan speeds.

Good luck with your build and dont hesitate to come back and ask questions.
