Need gtx 580 liquid cooling advice

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So here in a month or two I plan on liquid cooling my 3 evga 580's. My cpu is already liquid cooled, but I'm going to start a second, seperate loop for the cards. This is my first venture in to vga liquid cooling so I turn to you guys for some advice. What i was thinking about using is either the Koolance VID-NX580 NVIDIA GTX 580 or the EK 580 GTX DirectGPU IHS-Less VGA Liquid Cooling Block. The problem I run into with my planning is how many, and how big should the radiators be for 3 gtx 580's that i plan to overclock. On air right now i have them oc'd to 900mhz core clock and run about 50deg c under load. Oh i also plan on running the rads, pump, resivoir outside my case, so size is not an issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

I would go with 480mm of thick rad space with good fans for the 3 580's, it takes about 240mm of thin rad to cool my single 580 @ 1000Mhz, but I would just use a single loop setup for that, because the second loop doesn't benefit really, all you do is isolate temp spikes to one system and with enough Rad you wouldn't need to worry about it.

What are voltage/temps are you pushing with your card under load?

1.2V 1000Mhz and am getting into 55-60 ranges with a 15C ambient temp, but I have a crappy pump so if i got a real pump i could chop 10C off that right there.
