Quick couple questions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, so I have a rasa 750 rs240, I know that I should have gotten the RX but it wouldn't fit inside my case and that was a big deal for me, anyways I have my i5 3570k on it at 4.3GHz at stock voltage and I don't see above 45C when stressing, I was wondering if I could add my 7970, the dual x sapphire one with the 1000/1450 bios enabled, onto my loop or if I 100% needed to add another 120mm rad.

Edit: the gpu will stay at 1000/1450 no higher and the i5 will stay at 4.3 no higher. biggrin.gif

No, the rs is fine for either the cpu or gpu. so only one or the other. im not to familiar
with your case selection. you'd faired better in dollars with the H100. but for the custom
look, your case doent look to be accomodating to water cooling with thick radiators internally.
id wither look to sell and get a dedicated water cooling case CM 690II, FD arc midi, or
something with room inside and sell you case or look to thick radiator outside of the case.
one thing to maybe look at (depending on your "skills") remove the HDD cages and put
radiator on the floor and cut out the floor for the second fan.

What size rad would I need to add for the 7970?

another 240. but why? id water cool the GPU and air cool the CPU.
use the rasa 240 for the 7970. sell the rasa block, use a noctua nh-d14
cpu heat sink for premium cooling. for economy, the cm 212 would also
work.
if plans are xfire the 7970 a thick 60mm radiator would be in your best
interests.
