140mm Rad Or Semi-Major Upgrade time?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
EDIT: Decided to do a little upgrading, see post #4

Original post:

Hello!

Right now my WC setup is:

Rasa 750 pump --> GPU block --> Swiftech 360 Rad --> CPU block --> Rasa 750 pump

I'm debating if a 140mm rad on the back of the 800d case will help with temps at all. I do not want to mod my case so if i were to add an internal rad this would be the best way to do so.

So my 2 questions are will this help with temps? And, will my Radar pump be able to handle it?

Thank you in advance.

It will help, but how much may be unknown. What are your current CPU/GPU/Water temps? Are both of your GPUs in the loop?

Can't you internally mount the 120/140 rad on the inside rear or bottom of the case? If you go rear external, may as well go 240 or 360 IMO.

Thanks for your quick response.

Only my GTX 570 is in my loop

Current temps are:

Idle:
CPU 43
GPU 30

Load (Max):
CPU: 74
GPU: 47
(Load temps were taken after running Folding@Home on both my CPU (SMP 7 cores) and GPU (1 core) for the same 8 hours)

My idea is that I would mount the 140mm rad internally in my case on the back case fan (Labeled A on the diagram below)



The other option would be to mount it on the bottom (Location B on the diagram above). I'm not entirely sure where the hot air would go however in this situation

I think i'm actually going to change this idea up a bit
  • Going to grab a RX360 and replace my Switftech MCR320
  • Grab MCP655 pump (Though I don't think Newegg has the "B" version of it link) and replace my XSPC Dual Bay Pump/Reservoir Combo (Im not really a fan of it)
  • Get a nice internal reservoir to show off in the case
  • Add a fast disconnect
  • Maybe a Rad on the bottom

Probably Definetely overkill, but this is OCN right?

EDIT: And once everything is nicely up and running, I can sell the XSPC Dual Bay Pump/Reservoir Combo & the Switftech MCR320 here on OCN.
