Ways to perfect this system? How would you do it with these supplies?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Parts list:

1st radiator in top of case: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/50...?tl=g30c95s161

2nd radiator on rear fan of case: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/10...?tl=g30c95s929

2 of these pumps/res: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14...tl=g30c107s152

4 koolance memory coolers
1 koolance cpu block
2 ek water blocks

HAF X case

Now with these supplies, what way would you guys run this system?

My idea:

use the 360 radiator to cool the CPU/memory

use the 120 to cool the dual GPU

Now I know I'm leaving out details like cpu first/memory second, and parallel or other for the GPU.

Tell me your thoughts and opinions on this. Thanks!

I'm still an amateur/noob water cooler but looking at the res/pump combo specs, i think you would be fine with one of those. It comes with a strong DDC pump. Should be good enough for all your blocks/rads. (edit) I had the same pump (PMP-400) running on a CPU, MB, 3 GPU blocks, 360 rad, and 480 Rad. Worked well!!

Edit: Run everything in a single loop. Combing the the 360 and 140 rad should be enough to cool all your components.

Cool. I was wondering if combining them would be enough, or if I should have to separate them Thanks.

unless you really want the red rad why not get a RX360 or GTX360 depending on what fan noise you can put up with these would give you better cooling
And as far as i remember some1 saying there is little benefit from cooling ram on the 1155 socket

Yea the ram part is 90% a looks thing. Same with the red radiator. Going with the red and black theme. If I can find the 2nd radiator in red I'll go with that too.

Know of any good vendors for radiators?

You'd definitely be better off with a single loop. Unless you are using 9800GT's an 140 alone isn't going to cool 2 GPU's without super powerful fans.
And +1 for going with the RX360. A little masking tape and some spray paint/ powder coating can make any RAD red. Not to mention if you add accents to your case at the same time, you get a great color match.

Agree with what "billy66bare" says. 1 x 140mm by itself is not enough to cool 2 580's.
And yes, you should go with an RX360, i have worked with 3 of them. They work great!

I looked at that radiator, and due to the thickness, it would require me cutting and re-welding the case to be able to fit the two radiators where I want them with the fans. I'm testing out designs for clients and I want them to be simple yet amazing and functional.

Plus I want to keep the one big fan on the top radiator on top. Sure I could remove the fans on the bottom of the radiator and it would work, but I'm too stubborn and like my method


However Im going to try the EK 240 and see how well that works. I definitely need something bigger than this red radiator.

Based on personal experience, you can fit up to 74mm of rad including a single set of 25mm thick fans on the inside top, while using a 120mm BlackIce Stealth on the rear, with a 120x25mm fan inside as well. You can also add another set of 25mm fans inside the top panel for push/pull on the 360.

Got to clear the memory coolers too. Parts are on the way so we will see. I have to order more parts for another client so I think I'm going to order the 2nd fan for the top while I'm at it. The 240 I ordered was one of the thinnest of that kind. I like there to be room to breathe.

So far I've got 5 different $5,000 computer builds going on right now and I'm doing them all differently. This is going to be a fun month. I'm testing out several vendors with different kinds of products to see which ones I will be happiest with
