Enclosed CPU WC or custom CPU loop?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Currently I have an Coolit ECO A.L.C and was wondering if there would be any performance difference between this enclosed CPU loop or a custom WC loop, specifically:

  1. EX-Surpreme LTX - Acetal cpu block
    http://www.gammods.com.au/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_87_141&products_id=3197
  2. XSPC EX120 Rad
    http://www.gammods.com.au/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_2&products_id=4865
  3. XSPC X2O 450 pump/res
    http://www.gammods.com.au/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_120&products_id=2546

As of now my cpu sits at about 33-37*c at high-Low fan speeds and about 50-57*c at load on high fan settings. I run push/pull on the radiator as well. I have the bitfenix raider because so i can only fit a 120 rad without mod but could possibly add another 12 or 14 rad with slight modification. I am looking at possibly overclocking my cpu to 4.2ghz in future depending on temps.

Cheers guys

I like customs loops becase you can always add a gpu or two later were you dont have this option with a closed loop

Yeah there would be a difference but I really don't see the benefit of going custom if you're not gonna go with at least a 240 rad.

hmm that is what i was thinking, i'd need a 240 rad.

I could do it as the 20cm fan sits at the top but that means 4cm of unused rad, however i wouldn't be able to fit 200 rad due to curvature of top of the panel it would sit under.
