Single 120mm good enough for gtx 580?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello I have a Zotac gtx 580 Amp! and want to take the thing to 1ghz. Since I have limited room in my case would a single 120mm rad with this pump and res combo be enough to cool the thing?

I plan on using these items

An RX120 and you would be ok, I wouldnt run a 120 Coolstream on a 580 they dump a hell of a lot of heat, No way you can fit a 240 Cs in?

I have antec p180 so there would be no way to fit a 240. I was thinking it would be ok since I'm only hooking it up to 1 gtx 580.

The RX120 would do good with the 580 like Andrew said. By the way in your case you could use 2x 120mm radiators, like 1 on top and 1 on back, or something similar. I've seen a guy do that with a p180, I'll try and find that thread.

P.S. I use to own a p180 myself

EDIT: This is what I was talking about with 2x radiators. Not the exact one, but it gives you the idea.
