Is this good enough - Page 2

Where is the front rad? in front of the 200MM fan or in the drive bay area?

Would something like this be good enough? I got some PM's and I think people aren't understanding what I mean. When I say is a 240 type good enough I mean is it good enough to effectivly cool the water for the three main components (cpu and 2 gpu's)?

In front or behind the 200mm fan; need to remove the drive bays. Check the photo in the link.

240 is not enough.

I'll probably do something like that but in case I don't what is a good external rad?

Any of them can be mounted externally. Swifttech makes a "Radbox", XSPC offers a few different brackets, Koolance has a neat looking bracket, etc. Without modding the case you will basically just attach it to a 120mm fan opening.

Thanks but I think I'm going to try Banegio's way of doing the 120 up top and the 200 in front and see how that works. I just Thought of something else. If I go with two 120mm Gentle Typhoon fans for the rad would a speed of 3000 rpm be enough to keep a dual 120 rad cool?

For radiator fans you want high static pressure/cfm. Some fans can achieve good results at a much lower rpm than others. For that RX rad you linked you actually don't need terribly powerful fans to get good results, it has been optimized for lower spec fans.

*Insert obligatory GT AP-15/Yate Loon suggestion here*

I recently jumped on the AP-15 train and couldn't be more pleased. Very quiet yet very good airflow through the radiator. 3k's probably won't give you much better results.

What I was thinking is something like this a dual 140mm fan rad + the 200mm front fan.

Right now I have two 140mm coolermaster fans. I don't know if that would be good enough but if it is it would save some money.
