Is this good enough

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
In my head I pretty much have a plan on how I want my loop to look. I'm thinking right now that I would water cool my cpu and dual video cards. So what I want to know is would a single bay res be good enough for this setup or should I get a double bay res? Does it make a difference and is one give better performance?

Also for the above setup what size rad should I get, a 240, 360 or 480. I was thinking either the 240 or 360.

Res size doesn't make a difference. However rad size does depending on what you're cooling. So what're you cooling?

The res itself will have little or nothing to do with temps. For radiator a general rule of thumb is 120mm per block, but that doesn't really paint the whole picture. Go to "User CP" then "Edit System" and fill in your specs. Knowing the exact hardware you're using will help us help you

If you can fit a 480 there's no reason not to for a cpu/dual gpu loop.

You dont even really need a res at all. But it makes it ez to fill and bleed

Corsair Obsidian 650D mid tower

GA-Z68-UD4-B3 mobo
I5 2500K
dual Radeon 6970's
8 gigs of Corsair Vengance ram
1TB HDD
128mb SSD

For now I just want to cool the cpu and dual video cards. Can I do a single loop from the CPU to VC-1 to VC-2 then back to the res?

Yes you can do that on a RX360, personally I would go for a RX480 for lower temps or lower fan speeds.

You can fit an RX240 in the roof of the 650D if you use washers bolt the rad towards the right side pannel so that it misses the rad, and then install the other rx240 off the back of the case, or install the 480 off the back if you dont mind it been unsightly.

But will a 420 be able to be mounted on the underside of the top grill of the Obsidian 650 D where the 200MM fan sits? It might be too long.

No, the max you can fit is in the roof is a 240 (RX240 with off center mounts, to clear mobo)

Thats going to be a problem then. I'm guessing a 240 wouldn't be good enough cool the cpu and dual GPU's?

Single loop is all you need.

Cooling three components, you should aim for 120.4

If you don't want external rad, you can have a 120.2 at the top and a 200mm at the front. Like this: http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...led-build.html
