My system has it's airflow shoot in from the bottom and out the top with the top fan being the CPU's liquid cooling radiator. However, there's a perfect place inside my case where currently a regular fan that honestly no longer serves any real purpose with the liquid cooled CPU resides that would be perfect for something like http://www.arctic.ac/us_en/products/cooling/vga/accelero-hybrid-ii-120.html#?bild1 or modifying a CPU's liquid cooler for GPU use. 

The only purpose this particular internal chassis fan served was to help cool the CPU when I used to use air cooling but only now helps to serve to push warm air towards the radiator of the CPU's liquid cooling.

And this will definitely be for a 970/980/980Ti/Titan. Haven't decided really yet. But my backup GPU is bent and my original GPU died so I can't wait for Pascal anymore.

If you want the easy route, then something like the corsair Hg-10 will do the cooling for you quite well and you don't have to wory about VRM and RAm cooling since it's included with the bracket. Before answering the fan question, it would help to know what case you have. That said, it's most likely replacable with any radiator, and as normal the radiator fan will move air in to or out of the case like any other fan (just already heated air from the GPU).

Before recommending anytihng though, it is nice to know hoiw much you are willing to do and what things you will modify. It's also up to the availability of components in your respective country.

I will have to take a look at the Corsair HG-10 - not because I want the easy route but because I'm new to the world of GPU liquid cooling and want to get a feel for it first. Plus, the system is on 24/7 as it mostly acts as a server for files and media streaming so usually the ready to go packages are much easier to replace in the event of failure. I held off on CPU liquid cooling for the longest time because I didn't think it would have the reliability as simple fans for a 24/7 system but I was obviously concerned for no reason.

 

To answer you question about cases, I have the Silverstone Fortress FT03 which might be slightly modified as my computer is actually a Maingear F131.

 

And 99% of products are available in the United States so I doubt that'll be a concern. Even if it isn't, I can always buy from another country and have it shipped to the US.

I see, I dind't notice the country tag on your profile there tongue.gif in that case you may want a look at the FT03 thread, this post by Nukemaster should show some of the problems faced with placing a radiator on the position you mentioned: http://www.overclock.net/t/1174563/official-silverstone-ft03-ft03-mini-owners-club/2340_30#post_24268892

I really liked the build in this post as well and it shows how you could get two 120mm radiators in there (and 80mm radiators in the bottom, but that is less of an option unless you use custom WC):
http://www.overclock.net/t/1174563/official-silverstone-ft03-ft03-mini-owners-club/600_30#post_19627738

So depending on your RAM and the radiator you will be using, you might have to go for a slim fan on the radiator.

And 99% of products are available in the United States so I doubt that'll be a concern. Even if it isn't, I can always buy from another country and have it shipped to the US. 

I personally went with the NZXT Kraken G10 for my G1 GTX 970, it works with any Asetek AIO cooler and comes with a fan, luckily I had an old corsair H40 lying around and everything went quite smoothly. Temps are quite a bit better. Check it out.




Whatever you choose is cool, but I figured I'd show an alternative to the Corsair thing. I don't like the look of that one, I mean it's cool, but I think they could have made it a little more snazzy-looking.. smile.gif (not that the Kraken G10 is anything more than a bit more colorful) tongue.gif

If you do end up going with the Kraken G10, you should buy it through Amazon, they are the cheapest I've seen. Btw, yes, a 120mm radiator will fit in most 120mm case fan mounting spots, as long as you have the extra room for the added thickness of a radiator and 1 or 2 fans. If you look at mine you might see that I actually placed my Corsair H40's Rad in the back fan spot, and I have 2 fans in push/pull on that 120mm radiator. My case is pretty big though, haha.

Rainmaker91 Your build is a very nice looking machine. So clean and uncluttered. Mines just the oppissite now.
I had gotten a full waterblock for my second 780 and finally got my modded radiator and res installed.
The funny thing is my old mod on the first 780 runs, one degree cooler than the EK block. And the modded ones on top.I wish I could check the VRM temp but mine is a green card and for some reason they dont support that. Kind of makes me wonder what to do when I do upgrade.

It's far from finished yet, and what the picture only shows a trial fitting I did with some of my components so I would be surprised if it's not tidy tongue.gif Hopefully I can make it pretty and all that with all the stuff put in as well, wires tend to clutter things up a bit after all (doing some plexi covers to fix some of the at though).

As for the AMD comment, I just had to throw that out there tongue.gif I have no clue why not everyone has temp sensors for stuff like the VRMs, considering even something like the fan speed on the card would benefit from throteling by VRM as well as core temp. Even stranger that most non reference cards are built without temp sensors on chip seeing as quite a few of these are directed towards OC. In any case, I'm just waiting for the shrink to upgrade my GPU. So for now I'm stuck with my HD7950, even though I do really reall want a fury/fury x tongue.gif

On the pluss side, I have temp sensors for both clusters of VRMs /the one for the core and the one for the vRAM). So you know, that's always a pluss. I am also looking forward to see the real life difference of running a 240mm AIO on my GPU and terribly ovekill radiator surface on it (also better block and all that).

welcome to the 240mm aio on gpu club ... or The 240 AGC. Its a little dead in here right now tongue.giftongue.giftongue.gif


I was not impressed at first, there is almost no change in temps. When you overvolt you will be surprised ... in a good way biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif My titan was 28-34 idle and could go up to 75c loaded and overvolted with a H70. Now I get as low as 24c (in truth its getting cooler outside so there I expected the drop over my H70) but I cant break 50c no matter what using the same volts and benchmark. That was worth it right there to me. It is bitter sweet though as I have to remember the vrm are still air cooled.

I was not impressed at first, there is almost no change in temps. When you overvolt you will be surprised ... in a good way biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif My titan was 28-34 idle and could go up to 75c loaded and overvolted with a H70. Now I get as low as 24c (in truth its getting cooler outside so there I expected the drop over my H70) but I cant break 50c no matter what using the same volts and benchmark. That was worth it right there to me. It is bitter sweet though as I have to remember the vrm are still air cooled.

Well, to be fair, I have always been running an H105 on my 7950 from the day I changed from my stock cooling (a Vapor-X cooler). What I'm refering to now is that I'm using or rather going to be using two 480mm, 85mm thick radiators on a single GPU and CPU. So yeah that will be terrible overkill considering my max temps now are about 50*c...

I agree with you though, going 240mm instead of 120mm is most definatly something I don't regret in my current setup. And then just the effect of changing the fans was immense in both temperatures and noise as well. I orginally had two SP120l (had to be run on about 1000 rpm to be decent for noise and even then to much for my liking) mounted on the radiator and went over to 4 Noiseblocker Eloop B-3 fans running at a constant of 1000rpm which performs a lot better and lowered my noise significantly (went down about 10*c due to my stuborness with setting the corsair fans at a low rpm).

No idea what to do with my AIO components when I switch over though...
