Quick radiator and pump question

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I will start my first water cooling build soon , I just receive my case today a Shinobi XL , took the mesure and make a 3dmax version to see what will fit inside. Its so big, that give me a lot of option and I want to hear what you guys think.

I will have a CPU and 2 GPU on the loop for sure and maybe I will add a VRM/NB/SB EK kit for my motherboard. I also want a silence system for a change so I figure I can put more radiator area and just go push with low rpm (1000-1200) fan and still get a good cooling.


Here my option :

3X140 Front (XSPC EX)
3X140 Top (XSPC EX)

if needed, I still have room for 1 140 at the bottom and 1 at the back.

OR

4X120 Front (XSPC EX) ( Can fit the RX 480 too but its cost too much vs the EX)
2X140 Top (XSPC EX)

Again I have room for the two 140 if needed.


OR

3X120 Front (RX 360)
3X140 Top (XSPC EX)


Also for the pump I saw the mcp35B , the price is good because you dont need a top but I hear its the rebrand 350 variable with a X top... is this true? Cause the graphic at swiftech show the performance is far ahead of the 350 and the curve in the variable graphic is the same as the X at 50%.

The 35B is a good choice for me ?

thanks

MY GOD !!!! thats a load of rads and blocks ur talking about.... smile.gif U dont really need all these......
But still if u want then u should plan dual loop...for better preformance ... one Laing D5 might work but u'll be facing some performance hit for sure....Even if u do dual loop u should use D5's for both of ur loop....as the components ur talking about are fairly restrictive....TC smile.gif

Sure its a lot of rad, and probably not needed but that what fit the case... why put a 2X120 when you need a little bit more cooling when you can fit a 3X140 at the same spot... its not like they have a 100$ difference price, a 2X120 to a 3X140 is 20$ ( XSPC EX)

For info the loop will be a raystrom for the cpu, and 2 xspc or ek universal block for the GPU, the Mb kit is really only an option and not really needed,if I add something its probably gonna be just the NB block later.

starting out with 2-3 blocks, even with 3 rads a single d5 at setting 4 should keep you over/around 1 gallon per minute
just don't use too many 90s and you should be just fine with a single d5

oh and to answer your question the 35b is , from swiftech's site, has the same pump characteristics as a 35x at 50%, which would put your loop closer to 1.5GPM. . .
and 280mm of rad per block is massive overkill, and i like it, but you don't need it, though it would allow you to run your fans well under 1000rpm for a majority of the time

I would really lean towards the RX version of the rad vs the EX. Check out the recent reviews and you will see why when it comes to flow rate and cooling capacity. The cost is well worth it.

I just saw the new review and at 1200+ rpm the EX beat the RX ... good performance for half the size and price, and since I will use 1200 rpm fan ... look like a good choice,

thanks

If the 35B runs at 10W-15W, it could be a MCP350 (DDC-1T). However, it would be difficult to offer this type of pump since it has been out of production for years. More than likely, the 35B is based off of the MCP355.

Swiftech site claim the mcp35B is 12W at 12V
10 feet Head
4.00 gpm (240 gph)

they dont said much, only the 35b is the evo of the 350, and the 35X is the evo of the 355

I read that the 35X is not a 355 upgraded but a different new pump, im wondering if its the same thing with the 35B or its a old model rebrand with the top and a variable rpm
