Just bought a XSPC razor block for my 580, Have a few Questions.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all just like the title states I just bought a Block for my 580(from sidewinder pc IMO Gary is a very nice person to work with and answered my questions about the block very promptly and professionally).

My questions are...

1. I have an RX240 kit how should my loop order be?

2. I am Assuming the pump will be enough for the loop.......am i right to assume that?

3. Will the rx240 rad be able to handle the heat output?
Small wonder.

getting another 120mm radiator would help decrease your GPU temps in future.

But for now go pump/res>radiator>cpu>gpu>pump

if you get a 120mm in the future go pump/res>radiator>cpu>120mm radiator>pump

if your ever thinking about getting a second gpu you will need a new pump though

After res to pump build for shortest tubing the temps will all be equal after they reach load so it dont matter
Yes the pump will handle it easy
If you dont overclock to the max then a 240 should work for you but if it dont maybe you can add in a 120.1 rad later

Rule of thumb is having a minimum of 120mm rad per component, your 2600k isn't heavily overclocked so it'll work but you'd get better temps if you added a 120 or even 240. Loop order doesn't really matter just have the res before pump for easy filling, cpu before gpu and you can plop the radiators anywhere, go for what makes tube routing easiest and cleanest.

Your pump should run your loop but the rasa bay pump is really meh and was oriented towards a cpu only loop really but you'll still get flow and such but if you add anything else I'd look into getting a D5/DDC with top.

^yea I've always liked the thought of having a separate pump for my loop but It was my first foray into custom loop so i wanted it to be simple and effective.

Thanks! of course +rep!
