Sandy bridge E - first water loop need help

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Okay so im doing my first waterloop soon on a asus sabertooth x79 motherboard and the 3820 cpu whenever it comes out. The loop will only include the cpu and chipsets, the block for the cpu is a "watercool heatkiller" and the chipset blocks are "koolance MB-ASSTX79".

Im just wondering if the 120mm radiator i ordered will be enough to cool all of this with a good overclock (4.5ghz)? The radiator is a "coolgate ultimate performance", full copper tubes, 7fpi, 6cm thick, i will be using a bitfenix 1000rpm fan.

Yes it will cool it, although I still would recommend a 240. What are the rest of your loop details?

I'd probably go with a 240mm radiator, the price difference isn't significant but it provides much more cooling capability. For both a chipset block and CPU, I'd say a 120mm isn't going to give you very impressive temperatures at all, likely not better than air while costing you significantly more.

My entire loop will consist of:
Watercool heatkiller rev.3- cpu block
Primochill 1/2" id tubing
Ek high flow 1/2" barbs
Koolance MB-ASSTX79 chipset blocks
Alphacool 5.25" bay resevoir
Coolgate ultimate performance copper tube 120mm radiator

I have a zalman z9 case, so i cant really fit a 240mm without it being outside so i figured id just order a good 120mm and see how it goes and if i reeeally needed a 240 i could upgrade but thats looking like alot of work lol now im worried frown.gif
I figured a 120 would be ok since people use corsair h80's and they seem pretty happy? Is that good logic?
Antways any help is much appreciated

Oh sorry, pump is a "phobya d12-400" 800l/hr

If you didn't already buy the tubing I would recommend 7/16ID x 5/8OD for the 1/2 barbs. You will not have to use clamps.

I already ordered frown.gif is that a experienced watercoolers trick? Or did i order the wrong size tubing for my barbs?
post #8 of 11
Your barbs will work just fine with that tubing, you'll need hose clamps or similar but I don't trust running without them even using oversized barbs. As for the radiator, people with the H80's often see temps that are comparable to high-end air coolers, and you're going to be cooling not only the CPU but the chipset as well. A single 120mm will work, and it's going to be better than stock cooling for sure, but I personally wouldn't consider it worth the price for the performance you'll get.

Alright awsome thanks smile.gif definately will have to stuff another 120mm in the future. Any ideas on what safe temps are for the lga 2011's? Ive read that 75c is kinda the max normally, but the lga 2011's can handle higher temps?
