GPU Block EK FC560 GTX V2

Rad's Black Ice GT Stealth 120 X-flow (need some help to choose the other two rads)

res+pump/s need some help to decide whether to use one or two loops, i thought for one loop in Laing MCP35X 18W PWM, for two loops do not know frown.gif


Case 1

My psu is to noisy, then it will be out of the case inside a box to reduce noise.

The pump will be the laing mcp35x PWM + reservoir rev.2b and I've been thinking about the EK coolstream 240 XT rad, one in front and another in the back, in the top a Black Ice GT Stealth 120 X-flow. It is enough?

And tube? 6mm... 8mm... 10mm... 12mm...?!?!?

Sorry for my bad english confused.gif ... lol
Thanks

You should be fine with a single loop but that case doesn't look great for watercooling. If you mount the pump and a rad in the front where are you planning on having your hard disk(s)?

If you find the PSU too noisy then you might find the Swiftech 35X is also noisy if mounted either in a bay res or bolted to the case. It needs to be decoupled (isolated from direct contact with the case) to run quietly. I don't think you'd have the space to mount it with the Swiftech res in the positions you've marked out in your pictures.

2 x 240 rads will be enough and I'd consider the Swiftech MCR 220 rads as they're reasonably priced. If you used the GT Stealth rad you'd need higher speed (and noisy) fans to benefit from it.

I only use one HD and the optical drive is external USB but only use to install windows once a year.
In the picture case 1 I was thinking of a xspc Dual 5.25” Bay Reservoir with a laing 18w inside.
Case 3

Case 4

The green space is for the pump+reservoir. I am thinking to use the case 3 and when I get a new quieter PSU I put it up in the two top bay 5.25.

I was watching the radiators and I can buy these in Portugal:

1x SWIFTECH Radiador MCR220-QP-K - for 47.70€

1x EK COOLSTREAM RAD 240 XT - for 45.50€

1x BLACK ICE STEALTH GT-240 - for 47.90€

1x BLACK ICE STEALTH GTX-LITE-240 - for 59.90€

1x Magicool 240 Slim - for 26.90 , I can use this one in sandwich, two in the front and two in the back, like this:

What is the best choice?

Thanks

You could lay a 360 across the bottom AP's, and run 2 fans on top in pull. You'll probably want your pump/res at the top of the loop for easier bleeding.

You can make it work with external rads, but that is not a good case for internal liquid cooling.

Hi,

Stacked radiators are a very bad choice as to cooling efficiency but
you probably know that.

Probably cutting the bottom rads cooling in half by setting them up that way.

But if no other choice space wise would work;)
Better than not doing it if only choice.

Later:D

Thank you all for your help and suggestions, so I need to choose the radiator, which is the best of these:

1x SWIFTECH Radiador MCR220-QP-K - for 47.70€

1x EK COOLSTREAM RAD 240 XT - for 45.50€

1x BLACK ICE STEALTH GT-240 - for 47.90€

1x BLACK ICE STEALTH GTX-LITE-240 - for 59.90€




From what I've been reading the choice depends on the fan's that I use, I already have these:

1x SILENX iXtrema PRO SERIES 120MM 14dBA 60CFM - 38MM

1x COOLINK SWiF2 120MM 120P PWM 8,5/27dBA 60/127CFM

1x SILVERSTONE FM123B 120MM 17/39dBA 40/106CFM (so noisyyyyyyy)

3x LIAN LI LI121225BL-4 (came in a Lian Li PC-101B)

1x SILVERSTONE 120mm ( came in the raven 2)



I think I'll buy another Silenx iXtrema 38MM for the first rad and use the Coolink Swif2 in the Black Ice GT Stealth 120 X-flow or buy another for the second 240mm rad. Also have a good fan controller, 0v/13v. Tomorrow morning I'll buy the radiator and the tube but do not know which tube to choose, 1/2 or 3/8 or other?

Anyone can help me with the tube and the radiator?

Thanks
