I've got a Z9PE-D8 board on its way along with 2 E5-2670 chips and 64Gb of Samsung ECC 1600Mhz Registered ram. My graphics card is an XFX R290x Double Dissipation card with 4Gb memory.
I'm putting it into a black Phanteks Enthoo Luxe case.
Now onto cooling. I've never water cooled before but am keen to try it. I know that you can't overclock these processors much due to the locked multiplier so water cooling is pretty much overkill. HOWEVER I do wish to try it.
I was thinking of buying the EK-KIT X360 and buying another EK-Supremacy EVO water block for the second CPU. Will this work ok? https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-kit-x360
I've seen some loops that have the cooling going from one CPU straight into the second CPU. Wouldn't that mean one CPU was getting all the heat from the other? Here is a link and pics to explain.
scroll down to the TCM Mod section.
Does it matter that it is looped like this?
What would be the best air coolers to use in the Phanteks Entoo Luxe case? I know the Noctua coolers are very good (I have one in my current system, Q6600 lol) but I'm getting over the brown fan colour. It is starting to look pretty crap to me now and very dated.
I was thinking of getting a CoolerMaster Vanguard 1200W 80+ Platinum PSU in case I threw in another R290x for gaming. Will this be overkill? What would be an appropriate wattage PSU?
