Water cooling 2 x HD 6990 (Quadfire) and i7 2600k

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hay all.

Can anyone tell me if a XSPC RX480 in push config will be enough to cool 2 x HD 6990 (Quadfire). I would hopefully want some overclocking headroom as well.

I'm also going to water cool my 2600k in a separate loop using a Black Ice GTS 360, I'm pretty sure I'd get some decent results and I'm curious if anyone else had a similar setup and can share results?

Many thanks!

Definitely, its overkill infact, you wont even need the fans that powerfull at all.

All chips are different so you cant really give a estermate of the temp, but I can tell you that it will be cool.

Even though the HD 6990 is a dual GPU card? Have you seen any examples online of it being done?

(Not throwing your advice back in your face... I just want to do some research before I start spending my cash-monies)

I currently use an CoolIT ALC240 in push/pull config to cool my 2600k and because of the heat of my HD 6990 inside the case as well as the fact that it's not a great CPU cooler, I can't comfortably get over 4.5GHz. I'd like to try to get to 4.8 - 5 GHz with the Black Ice GTS 360 in a single loop.

Ill have a dig for temps, but yeh I understand man you wanna see black and white results. (just got to finish some coursework / ocn is such a destration)

From Skinee's testing a RX360 with fans in push will dissipate 500-600 watts with a 10C delta. (With 1400-1800 rpm fans)

A single 6990 will have a tdp of 370 watts or so when unlocked so you can start to see the headroom that you will have with a RX480 and fans in push/pull.

There will be plenty of headroom to OC.

really stuggling to find anything. - even found youre post on some random tech site linking to this thread

OC3D had a 6990 + i7 loop


He used a crap RAD and crap fans, he got max temp of like 60 on the gpu wile stressed so with 2 6990s on the RX480 you should be looking at better temps then that with good fans in push pull.

maybe PM this guy on youtube ask for his amb and temps. - if he turns the fans on lol and doesnt lie about the temps.
