Cooling two 7970 Lightnings with Aquarium chiller

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
SO I was looking at the TDP for my two lightnings and from what I saw its around 200Watts each, for a total of 400 watts,

Now this aquarium chiller has a rating of http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_373&products_id=32959

395 watts, would this be enough to dissipate the heat from the cards, just thinking simply I would assume so, but im a novice when it comes to chillers, done allot of water cooling, but was curious what yall thought,

Thanks,

CT

if your were to dissipate some heat through radiators prior to entering the chiller, then you could probably add your cpu to the loop wink.gif

lvl8hacker is cooling 3x GTX580's and his cpu using a weaker chiller than the one you linked.

It's things like that really make me want to go beyond ambient cooling with my current water set up.
It comes down to finding the line between what's worthwhile for 24/7 use and benching, and atm I can't afford to justify a chiller. worriedsmiley.gif
Cheers for the link though!
