Antec P280 Loop Suggestions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi OCN, Ive been lurking here for years and just decided to migrate over from sharkyforums / XS. You guys are a great and thriving community.

Im in the process of redoing my P182 loop that I have been running for about 4 years.

Ive just picked up a P280, Micro-Res, and 4x Gentle Typhoon 14's. I would like to convert my current loop contents into a total internal build on the P280. However my MCR320-QP will not fit in the 240mm top location, so Ive designed a plan to not attach a fan on the last 120mm location of the rad (in a pull config) as shown below. If anyone has any suggestions on how to improve this loop, or think that I should add a 240mm rad in the optional location to more effectively cool my 2500K (4.2 @ 1.3V) and 6870 (stock) I would be happy to hear anyones opinions. Thanks in advance, Flutie98

I think you might be a bit too short on the number of fans.
Does the height allow push pull? If not, I think push yields better result than pull.

To the end, I guess it depands on how far you are pushing your 2500K and 6870.

In the 1000RPM regime pull ends up working out just fractionally better.

Thanks for the input

I just reckon you don't have enough fans for a decent setup. If you're not going beserk with cooling the one 360mm rad looks good - but it'd be better with more fans.
