Suggestions required for water cooling gtx 580 - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Thread Starter 
no actually i knw this seems to be bit annoying... but what i want to ask u guys that... obviously i need another radiator.. so do i get another rx 360 rad for 58os? and secondly is that i have to change my pump as well... right now i m having xspc reserviour which have pump already fitted in that... what i have to get so that i can watercool both the things eg cpu and gpus??
thanks

A 360 will be fine for your 580's. I cannot help you with your pump/res question, I only use D5 pumps and vertical reservoirs.

thats wht the confusion start actually i dont have any idea about making the loops and all... since i am new to water cooling.. i just bought xspc kit and put it on the cpu... now i dont knw wht to do what to buy.. and all hope u people are understanding my noobness
post #14 of 23
I have never used a kit so I am not much help in that area. If you want to add a second loop, I can help.

First thing - if the 580s give out more or less the same amount of heat as the 6950s, then your kit will DO THE JOB. You do not need more rad, more pump, and all that crap. See my sig rig - CPU and two GPU running off of the same kit. If you are not happy with temps, you simply get another 240 RAD and stick it in the loop. Same pump will work unless you got a restrictive motherboard block (which does not sound like you do).

So, in order to answer your question specifically,

1. You will need two GPU blocks. Full blocks work best, but are more expensive. There are some that only cools GPU (and not memory or VRM), that are universal and cheap. But I never really like them and will not recommend.
2. You will need a means to connect the two GPU water blocks. Depending on which waterblock you select (XSPC, EK, Dangerdan), you will have means to connect them. For example, I used XSPC waterblocks because they were cheaper and performs as good (or even better) than the EK blocks. And I used the following to connect them:
http://www.jab-tech.com/Dangerden-Cr...k-pr-4416.html
You will need two of those to do a parallel connection and just one to do a serial connection.
3. You DO NOT need another pump assuming you DO NOT have a motherboard block.
4. You MAY need another radiator depending on whether you like the final temperature or not.
5. You MAY need a rotary 90 degree fitting depending on your case. And make sure to have a drain line.

Are you suggesting that he run his CPU and GPU's on 1 120.2?

Well...maybe I missed something. He said he has a XSPC 750 RX360 kit. It comes with an awesome RX360 radiator, a decent pump+res combo, and a decent CPU block. If he is talking about one of those enclosed water cooling system like the H50, I have missed the boat.

Maybe I did. I looked the kit up a Frozen and it states a 120.2 so I could be wrong.

^^It's the rasa rx360 kit.

I'd add another rad somewhere, and start to think long and hard about a pump/res upgrade.

thanks a lot brother for answering me in a very easy manner... the thing is that i dont knw much about water cooling i just bought my kit and assembled it thats it now i dont have idea about loops and all i rightnow have xspc reserviour what to do now since i live in pakistan and in pakistan one cant get this stuff as u people get it.. i have to get it import from the website and it nearly cost me double... so what things i need to get changed... and how big radiator do i have to get cooling 580s..? and what is this parallel connection and serial connection from where i can get this..?
i can get XSPC blocks from my friend... he can get it for me...
