Asetek 760GC (updated with user feedback) - Page 2

post #11 of 30
Hello guys.
It´s an old thread but did you manage to get good temps with this kit?
I´ve been wanting to WC my 2500K + 2x Gtx570 in SLI and this solution sounds good for someone like me, that dosent want to spend much time and money to reduce the overall noise of the PC. What I would like was to use this to WC both GPU´s but I read in some reviews that it´s not possible because of the length of one of the tubes, is this correct? If so, I could use it to WC my CPU and the top GPU (the one that gets hotter and louder because of the lack of space between the 2 cards). Do you think it would work with the stock fans or should I buy 2 Noctua NF-F12 fan´s for a quiet and proper operation?
I already have a Noiseblocker 1000rpm fan so I cound just buy another one, correct? (http://translate.google.pt/translate?sl=de&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=pt-PT&ie=UTF-8&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.blacknoise.com%2Fes%2Fproducts%2Fit%2F17%2FNoiseblocker-NB_BlackSilentFan_120mm)
It´s not that I have a loud CPU cooler (Scynth Mine Rev. B) but maybe things can get better, when I game the fans get a little anoying, but I believe its the GPU fans...

One last question: I have the CoolerMaster Scout case, the new Swiftech H220 240mm radiator wouldnt fit in the front, back or top but the cases lets me put two 120mm fans in the translucid side panel (check here: http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/cases/2009/05/08/coolermaster-scout-review/1) do you think it would be possible for me mount the H220´s 240mm radiator there?

Thanks in advance for your input!

Cheers

Thank you in advance for ur help smile.gif

I also checked that my GPUs are not reference model (Inno3D gtx570 Hawk) so I would have to remove the cooler...how could I cool the VRM and RAM section of the card?

There are a lot of variable in play with the 760GC setup.
I am very pleased with my temps even though I'm still fine tuning everything. One thing I noticed recently which will absolutely apply to your scenario is that without the case side right in front of my GPU my temps dropped 10c a sign that i really need to get more fresh air to the vrm cooling. I still have the reference blower over the vrm too so with your hawk 570s expect to need a 100mm or so mounted over the back end of each card.
If you are familiar with "the mod" Dwood's bracket has a mount for a 120 or 100 as it was seen very necessary for most of these applications, especially with an OC.

I have my 580 core clock at 900 (16%OC) and my 3570 at 4.2 (23%OC) and at 100% sustained load I see 64 degrees on the CPU and 47 degrees on the GPU (with case open).
Also note that the unit does not come with any fans, at least not if you buy it from asetek on ebay. I mounted a 140pwm swiftech helix in push and a 120 swiftech helix in pull to get my temps but my case is also a special exception, I have no room for a larger radiator anywhere so a 120X49mm rad seemed like the best solution.
In your case I bet you could mount the H220 on the side panel, but I have no clue how much room you will have for fans before you get close to your GPUs.
The h220 is a very good cooling system but I think I would pass on it if you couldnt mount it on the top or front.

As referneced above this is the layout that I believe would most benefit you

Two 120mm rads, with plenty of cooling for both GPUs and the CPU.
I am about to set up my boss's machine (GTX570SLI and 2500k) with a similar configuration, he already has one Dwood bracket for the lower GPU and I'm confident in the 760GC'c ability to handle an i5 and the top 570

Shoot me some more questions if i glossed over anything.

Thank you very much for ur answer.
I really like the setup of the pic you sent, its a Asetek 760GC and a Asetek 740GF, right? I could do that...would of course have to buy 4 fans for them. What about the noise, do u think it would it reduce the overall noise of my pc?
post #17 of 30
Also, for ur boss setup, why not use the 740GF dedicated for the top GPU, as it´s the one that gets hotter? As you know in SLI mode the top one always get hotter because it gets blocked my the bottom GPU. This way the 760GC dosent need to to cool a CPU and a very hot GPU and can work more efficiently...or I´m I missing something?

As far as noise goes, I assume you have reference style GPUs and are leaving the cage blower over the VRM portion.
with the waterblock on the GPU i don't hear my fan spin up to %100 ever and it stays pretty quiet in a closed case. This is all theoretical because it depends on the specific layout of your case and airflow. By and large i would say it is quieter and more effective cooling.
The situation I am running into with the dual 570 build for my boss is one card is a dwood modded with a kuhler, which doesnt quite snuggle in properly as an upper GPU in SLI, due mostly (if memory serves me correct) to the 120mm fan over the VRM.
As we discussed by PM, choice of fans for the rads and placement within the case will be pretty crucial to making this setup at all close to the effectiveness of a custom loop.

No, unfortunately my cards are not reference coolers model. I am still researching on how should I put and which fan to blow some air to the ram section and if I will have to buy some heatsinks.
For the rads, are the noctuas NF-F12s really worth the money compared to the Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition? They are double than the Corsairs...
