Water Cooling Build - i7 980X - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
Thanks for the codes and that silver kill coil! Since this is my first time with water cooling, it seems that from his review that the radiator you have chosen performs the best on low fan speed? Is that something you look for in radiators or is it pure performance overall that you want?

I'm not sure exactly how many barbs I do in fact need. I'm guessing 2 for waterblock, 2 for radiator, 2 for pump, 2 for reservoir? Is that right?

If your looking for a -near- dead silent rig, then yes low speed fans are awesome, you can get high speed fans if you want to, Scythe AP-15s are really good fans on rads, I have 6 on my HW Labs 360 rad and it can easily handle my board+CPU (and there pretty quiet). Max temp while folding is typically under 63C, average temps are in the mid 50's at 100% f@h load.

Sounds about right, 8 barbs so you will also need 8 clamps of some kind, or zip ties I've seen people use those on here without any issues. Or 8 compression fittings and no barbs/clamps.

If you want performance then I'd say look at this rad, Black Ice GTX 360, this is what I have in my X58 rig right now, it has been amazing ever since it replaced my XSPC RX240.

Ok thanks for the recommendations for the parts. Are those temps for your overclocks listed in your sig rig? Because now I'm slightly tuned off by watercooling, due to the fact that my noctua keeps my 980x at 30-40C on load, 18-25C on idle. This is also because the air conditioning is literally behind where i sit with my HAF X sitting next to me.

Should I expect much lower temps or maybe lower temps even when the AC is off? Or will it completely destroy the temps on my noctua?

watercooling vs aircooling is day and night difference. reason why he probably has such high temps on rig is due to his "oc cpu and ambient temperature, thermal paste". If your able to achieve such decent temps /w air, If you had watercooling it will only be lower temperature and quieter!

Ok, I gotcha. I mean I really want watercooling by looking at all of these amazing builds and also because I have always wanted to do it so I can overclock my 980x. I just want to make sure that what I'm investing my money in will pay off. From seeing these crazy overclocking builds and temps, I think I should be great with the 980x.

I'm currently working on re-speccing some of my parts. I will post it when I am finished.

If you do it right your load temps should be lower then what you have currently, I assume your running on stock still. Yes they are my load temps for Paradox, whenever I have it fold its 1.35V for 4.2 w/ 2100 MHz memory (or somewhere near there). 1.5V on the VTT.

I used to have a H70 that cooled my w3680 (Xeon 980X), when August came around last year temps reached upwards of 75C, while just playing BF3, the VREG would hit in the 70's usually (doesn't hurt it at those temps, there rated for 110C I think) now there about 45C under a 2 day f@h load.

My family doesn't turn on the AC much, duting the summer and with my 580s roaring in BF3 or Shogun 2 it would easily hit ~80F inside my room. Plus, whoever built this subdivision did there best to skimp on every possible part, pretty much 0 insulation. Stays cold in the winter, hot during the summer.
