WC setup rebuild/extension, suggestions needed - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Depending how many things you want to control, if it's only these three Deltas, I'd recommend the FC-4 (or FC-3 for a different look). I would keep the Delta fans on their own channel, but depending on your other stuff, you might be able to combine those others on a single channel.

The FC-5v2 is a very nice controller if you want a display as well, but it does cost quite a bit more than the FC-4.

I like the look of the fc4, seems like it has enough power for the Deltas since they only require 4.2W and each of the 4 dedicated channels on the fc4 has a 20W capacity.

I have a couple of more specific questions about the setup as a whole now.

First, how viable is the 240 rad in the bottom bay (http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=81698)? It seems a little excessive to me, but I want to know if it will really improve my temps very much? I do have an xspc rx240 rad already, so I wouldn't have to buy another rad, but I would have to spend some money on two more Deltas and the case mod grill seen in the link.

Second, what should be the order of my loop now. The most common order I've seen is this: Res --> Rad --> CPU --> GPU --> Res
Will this be efficient enough with the Black Ice GTX w/ Deltas to keep the 570 at a reasonably low temp?

Thanks! +Reps for helpfulness!

Depending on what you plan to do with your system, the single 360 will probably be enough. General rule of thumb is 120mm of rad per component. I personally prefer 240mm per component, but I run CPU and GPU capped at 100% 24x7 (BOINC). That 240 bottom mod looks pretty easy and is probably something I would do. You could also sell your current 240 and get two 120's, one for bottom and one for back

Very good ideas! I think for now, I'll leave the bottom mod out of the picture since I don't have an SLI configuration which would (likely) require a dedicated loop. Well, I think that just about does it.

This project is going to be a matter of spending when I can so I'll like finish sometime in December. At that point I'll probably post a build log (even though it won't be that complicated, I just want to challenge myself to make it look really good).

Thanks again!
