Input on new build!! - Page 2

post #11 of 20
H100 is far better than the 920. Cools much better in push-pull
850w is recommended for sli. you really only need about 750w, but the psu is easily burned out at high levels. 850w is plenty for sli.

Alright first off, I would not even get the GTX 580 for this build. You are using a U3011. which is a very high res. So 1.5Gb of VRam will not do it for you at all.

I will get the new 7970 with 3Gb of Vram which is plenty for that res. Trust me, 1.5Gb will bottleneck you in certain games at that resolution (eg: BF3). Plus 1GPU > 2GPUs all the way.

Power Supply. Corsair AX850 - enough for GTX 580 SLI / 7970 CFX.

For cooling, personally I am on the verge of upgrading from a H80 to a RX240. The H series are good coolers without a doubt, but I think that value-wise they are quite poor, considering they are not as good as a Rasa Kit, and just a bit better than a air cooler like the D14.

I would get the RX240, if you can. If you do it right, leaks are quite hard to get. Actually, it is harder to get leaks den not have them from people's opinions.
A D14 is a nice silent cooler that stood the test of time or if you want you can get a H80, if you are going to get a H100, I would rather you spend a bit more and get a Rasa kit.

Sloppyjoe is right on the H100 vs a rasa kit it's a bit daunting at first but really they are a breeze to install just remember one thing MOCK UP BEFORE CUTTING TUBING. But the performance gain from a custom loop is really great my OC'd CPU will BARELY crack 60 after 2 hours of IBT. I believe the H100 would sit closer to 70c at that OC.

Sloppyjoe, aren't the 1595's 3GB GPU's? That's what i was planning on getting.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130751
....there's the link.

Also, where would you recommend one of those RX240 kits? I'll have to read more about them if that's what i decide. I'm a total newb when it comes to water coolers.

There are a number of different Rasa kits. There is a rs240, rs360, e\rx240, and rx360
The 240 may be internally mounted (not sure) and the 360's I'm pretty are have to be externally mounted. the rs has a simple radiator and the rx has a thicker radiator do dissipate more heat.

Thanks Fyre for clearing that up and the link. It's looking promising. Will have to read a bit more about it to take the plunge. I did just read a thread where unless i plan on mounting the radiator on the bottom of the 690 II, then i might need to rethink my case options though. http://www.overclock.net/t/1114142/xspc-rasa-rx240-kit-which-case

Drop the GTX 580's and go for CrossfireX HD 7970's. On a full water loop you will see close to rumored "Atomic" core clocks of 1.3Ghz. Well worth the switch even if you are a Nvidia fanboy or not. Even without liquid cooling the performance of them are just superior at around 10-20% increase at stock over the GTX 580, and $30+ cheaper each card.

Which ever you decide Ram go by this rule of thumb: 120 Rad per item being cooled plus add 1 extra for the overall loop. So if you went to water cool both GPUs then you'd need 3 120 rads (1 for CPU 2 for the GPUs) and 1 extra for a total of 480 rad. You can break down the rads into 120 blocks but try to make sure that they are installed over vents (if internal) that draw air into the case. You'll get your best cooling from that set up.

Water cooling the gpu's? Then you need much more than 240

I wasn't planning on doing any water cooling with the gpu's. Probably just the cpu. Thanks for the advice guys.
