Need Help regarding Wc 580

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering if the stock XSPC 750 Pump (the one that comes with the kit) is going to be enough to handle 2 rads. To be more specific a Rx 360 for the gpu and a RX 240 for the cpu....Along with 2 Blocks (Cpu/GPU). I've been reading and can't find a solid answer... Some people are saying its too weak, others saying its more than enough. Rightnow i am using rx 360 with my cpu..

do u recommend this setting as i mentioned that rx 360 for gpu and rx 240 for cpu and secondly is which block do u people recommend.. i have low budget.. i personally like Ek blocks.. but XSPC gpu block is also good i read some reviews... and so those on performance-pcs...

Regards

I'd pass on EK. XSPC, Koolance, Danger Den, or Heatkiller would be higher on my list.

Also, regarding the pump, I would prefer a more powerful pump. I've been pleased with my MCP355, and there are many options for mounting it - bay reservoir, aftermarket tops with or without a built-in reservoir, etc. However, I can't say for sure if the kit pump would be adequate or not.

Why pass on EK? The nickel plating issue? I thought they solved that.

because they have awful customer service and poor morals as a company as proven by the whole nickel plating situation. No one should support that behavior, plus the koolance blocks are "better" as well as the aqua computer ones.

Still could go with EK. I would get the copper bottoms but that's just me. Nothing wrong with them and if you get them from a vendor and not direct EK should be out of the loop. I had an issue with some comp fittings being scratched inside and while they did contact EK for referral , PPC's handled the issue very well and went above and beyond for me.

But really let's not forget that it's not only the manufacturer of the blocks in question, but if they look right in your build and are of Highflow Quality. Nothing like having Black blocks and fittings and then dropping in shiny shiny silver Nickel plating in the mix.

If Black is your deal then EK HF580 is probably what you want with a good backplate on it.

If shiny shiny bits are your deal then go with the HeatKillers. wermad ran those on his last TriXFire. He's since swapped out to TriSLI 580s', so he might be worth a PM or two to get his

The pump should handle your proposed upgrades (cpu, gpu, & two rads). Its comparable to the mcp655-B. If you plan to add another gpu it should still handle it, though I would consider adding a beefier pump if you plan to go any further (D5 or DDC 3.2/3.25).

As far as gpu blocks:

-EK - be careful, if you want nickel, make sure its the new ones designated "EN". I would recommend copper only tbh.

-XSPC - recommended, good budget buy

-AlphaCool - recommended, priced very well, acetal and copper design

-Danger Den - very well made and recommended, a bit pricey

-Koolance - very beautiful, excellent performance, great nickel (recommended if you must have nickel), a bit pricey though

-HeatKiller - recommended, beautiful design, copper, priced well imo (I'm getting three for my gpu setup soon)

-Aquagrafx - superb quality and nickel plating, if money is no concern, this should be the one to get in nickel imho.


All these blocks perform within a few degrees, what it comes down to is how much you want to pay, what looks your are looking for, and what accessories or upgrade-ability (future proofing) the block has (ie sli/crossfire bridges, etc).

RX360 Rasa kit should handle the Rasa cpu and Razor gpu block very well. It can also handle one more gpu block. For the hot climate area you live in, you might want to consider some different fans down the road, I'd recommend some Yate Loon high speed for best performance, low speed for quiet performance, and medium as the best compromise between both imho. Good luck
