How big of a radiator would I need to cool my 2500K and Gtx 680? - Page 3

post #21 of 49
A 2 x 120mm radiator will be plenty. Neither the 2500k or the GTX680 throws a lot of heat, even when overclocked.

so everyone is burning the RX !! I love those things , but if space is going to be an issue , might not be your best chance , the rs or ex would work ... at the very least stick with EK and XSPC as much as possible ( for most things , lots of other companies make lots of good products ) but these are safe

So to kinda conclude this I've decided on the Silverstone PSO7 and the Ex 240 RAD with GT Ap-15's. Lastly Pump and Res?

Pump you have to go D5 or any variation of the D5 ( many brands sell it under their own name ) its just about the most used and the most customizable one out there , you can pair them up , the EK blocks for them , they have bay reservoirs that accept them, heck you can even buy UV reactive O-rings for it and they make a variable speed version for an extra 10 $. The res it depends on whether you use it as a focal point or not , if you want really fancy and have the space get a frozenQ in you color theme , if you have the 5.25 bay space you can get pump res combos that take up 2 bays , otherwise there are simpler (and cheaper ) multioption tube reservoirs..

I know lots of links but while you are on that website the guy has tutorials including how to select your components , it shows advantages and weaknesses

I like the Bitspower Water Tank Z-Multi 150 - 60mm Tube Reservoir and I have seen and truly considered the Frozen Q Fusion Reservoir but it is a bit pricy for a res, but not to say I have not considered such a res. As for the pump I've seen great things about the D5. What about a bay res and pump combo?

that second one is the one I use actually , I got it with a kit , you should look into those actually on dazmode you can fully customize a kit and come out with the rad you want , tubing , fittings , bayres/pump combo , and xspc raystorm cpu block for about 300$. with the combo you choose the res, rad, color of tubing and fittings etc.. great deal to start off

Ok I see. I really like this Koolance Bay Res/Pump but damn over 300 bucks right there. How much would one of the XSPC bay res and add the pump cost?

Edit: OOh Never mind Tada.
