How many rads do I need (sorry for noob thread)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey I currently have a working CPU loop with a Swiftech MCR-320 Rad. I am adding 2 GTX 285 2GB into the loop, which idle at 60c =.= So as the title states how many more rads will I need? I have a friend with a CPU + GTX 470 Sli setup with the same amount of rads as me, but with one extra single rad. Is that enough?

you have the 932, you can put up an rx360 on top, and a 240mm on the btm with little modding..


but if you want a no-modding job, res-pump-360-cpu-120mm on the rear-gpu-gpu-120mm bottom.. this should be enough to cool those down.
