Building a system up.. need help

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
ok... so im already thinking about my new pc... although i will only buy it a year from now im looking up, u know how that goes

i'm not sure if my combination is doable.. maybe u can tell me

First of all i want that case *link*

Radiator - Watercool MO-RA3 9 x 140mm PRO Extreme Radiator - Black Powder Coat (22120)
i was thinking about mounting it to the right side of the case

1st water tank / pump - FrozenQ Liquid Fusion Dual Bay Reservoir w/ Swiftech MCP655 Series Pump Installed i was thinking about putting it inside the case

2nd water tank / pump - EK D5 X-Res Top 140 Pump Top / Reservoir Combo w/ Alphacool VPP655 Variable Speed Pump Installed

i was thinking about mounting it on the top of the case.

so now..

1. do you think it is doable?
2. do you think it will hold an i7 -2600K & nvidia 570 - without fans?
3. is it necessary / helpful / doable to put 2 pumps or shuold i take only one pump/tankk with another tank (with out pump)
4. if u have better/cheaper ideas pease tell me

I havent looked in to passive, but I know If I have my fans off on mine the temps will just rise constantly.

That res is ment to be mounted vertically, I guess you could use it horizontally but you would you would have to add a fill line and it would look ugly.

Its really not ment to be used like that man, if the water drops below the mid section of that res the pump WILL suck air.

Look into getting a case made for silence, one that is insulated. They usually lack the bells and whistles like a sportster side window, but inside the case you will be able to run fans and not hear them on the outside.

Examples

NZXT H2
Fractal Design XL
Fractal Design R3 Looks like it has been deactivated

The XL would be the biggest and most accommodating for reservoirs, radiators and the extra stuff you will be adding.

If your gonna go with the MPC655, you'll only need one pump. I could see using 2 if you have 2-3 gpus in series along with a mobo and ram block.

As for the passive cooling, i dont think it would be that great but i would work, ive tried running my system with the fans off, i have an RX480 and RS360 and theres almost a 10C difference in temps than with having my fans running.

so...

1. yes
2. yes, if not crazyly overclocked.
3. only 1 pump, 1 res needed
4. Personally i would go with 2x 120.2 rads with some fans instead and put everything inside the case.

If you dont mind have the rad outside of the case and you really dont want fans then the 9x140 is the way to go for sure. Its complete overkill if you put fans on it.

I was just suggesting an all interior solution and if you didnt mind using fans then 2 RX240s would be sufficient.
