Watercooling X79 + GTX680 SLI + Mosfet.

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

This is just a plan, I don't even know if I really want to go for full custom yet because it is a lot of investment just for cooling. I'm sure I have many questions and some may wonder why this way. I'm still new to custom watercool area.

 

Screenshot of my list is here:

 

 

 

 

Things I might know or not: (notes)

 

1. 360 Rad won't be enough for 1 CPU, 2 GPUs and Mosfet?

2. I need the Mosfet VRM cooling because on X79 they hit over 80'C if I overclock my CPU.

3. Fitting size 1/2 is best for flowrate?

4. Will the D5 pump sufficient for this setup?

5. That is way too expensive?

 

Current setup in summer:

CPU hits 75'C max

GPUs both hits 86'C max

VRM hits 80'C if not cool by a fan, right now it has a an over it to chill it down to 65'C effectively.

 

For sure Winter time I don't even need to mind about it because my house would be more freezing ambient.

1. No, I like to have 120xNumber of components but you have some heaters in there. cpu 2, gpu 3(1.5) vrm .5 , I would say 120.5 or 6 would be best,

2. 80 isnt too extreme, but it will dump that in to your loop.

3. 7/16 or 1/2 is fine, 1/2 is too fat for me. I use 7/16 primochill.

4. Yup, d5 is like a tank.

5. Its the GPU blocks that are braking the bank.

So you're saying 240 rad for CPU and motherboard Mosfet and 360 rad for GPUs?

 

I'm not sure if I have room to fit.

 

 

Maybe 240rad goes on top of my chassis and 360 rad will be sitting vertically between the board and the HDD brackets.

240mm is not really enough for a high clocked SB-E, that is to get the cooling capability that drew you to water in the first place.

360+240 together in one loop I heard with the similar setup. CPU and GPU load at ~40-50'C.

Probably closer to 50c depending on what you've done with your 680. Those things when unlocked/overvolted can really turn into Mr Hyde.

There are things which is a bit confusing to me. I see G1/4 threading, so I assume this is for the compression fitting thread to match? Barb is cheaper and easier to work with?

 

Back to the screen shot where it said Fitting size 1/2 x 3/4. ( I assume the 3/4 is the threading? )

G1/4 is the thread standard, ie quarter inch, etc. Basically everything you need is G1/4.

Barbs are not necessarily easier to use and in few ways they are harder but they are generally cheaper. I prefer compressions myself.

G1/4 is the thread on the rads, res, etc. the 1/2x3/4 is the ID and OD of the tube that you need for those fittings. ID.OD - Internal Diameteer, OD - Outer Diameter.

I might end up going this way.

 

1x 360MM Rad goes on top.

1x 200MM Rad (equiv. 360MM Rad?) goes in the front 200mm fan.

 

 

Is 1L of coolant is more than enough?
