Xspc dual bay top for d5 or ddc?

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
I have limited space in my p180 case. I am cooling a cpu and a gtx 580 on 2 120mm rads. Idle temps are 38c and after a couple hours on bf3 my gpu is at 65c. Right now im using a single bay xspc res/pump combo and want to upgrade to a dual bay one. I can't afford to add too much heat to my loop so i was wondering if the xspc dual bay for a single ddc or d5 is better? Im using 1/2 id 3/4 od tubing. Thanks.

What is your reasoning for upgrading it? I bet you could do other things to lower your temps. Either way 65c isn't terrible as far as I know, but there definitely is room for improvement.

I feel like the water isn't moving cuz the my pump is so weak. Its the xspc 200l/p pump.

Personally I have always stuck with the MCP355's but that pump should do the job for you.
What are your ambient room temperatures like?

My room temp is 28c.

That will play a role in your temps definitely. Currently I'm stability testing my new sig rig [only the processor is H2O atm though] and it's pretty chilly outside. Earlier when doing test for 4.4GHz my temps were 75c so I moved the intake for the rad closer to the window and it dropped my temps 10c almost instantly. Keep in mind that I moved the comp about 3 feet closer to the window. So make sure you have good air getting to the intake.

Unfortunately i cant move my computer. So you think upgrading the pump and res is a waste?

I would try that as a later on effort if other things dont work. What kind of fans are you running? What coolant? What is your loop setup like[push/pull etc]?

I might be able to help more =)

Is it a dual or single loop setup? Is the back rad an exhaust[and which rad is the gpu on?]
