Water cooling - xbox 360, ps3, i7 3770k, and gigabyte 7950 help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
i plan on tossing all of these parts into one enclosure.
if the ps3 or xbox are on, the pc will also be on
the pc may have times where it is on but the other two system wouldnt be.

due to the way i'm building this, air cooling the ps3 and xbox isn't really an option.

there will be a chance of overclocking both the gpu and cpu.

what parts list would you recommend for the water cooling parts?

You need to really do your own research for something like this. The best advice I was given on here was to search myself, then come back if you still have questions. thumb.gif

As for actual parts?

Think it out. You need a cpu block, gpu block, pump/s, radiators, xbox blocks, ps3 blocks.
Go on your favourite PC store depending where you are in the world and search. Pick one you like, look for reviews, etc.

You're going to need a LOT of rad, I can tell you that right now. I would imagine a 480 for both consoles would be okay, and a 360 for the pc (with one gpu).

Best of luck! thumb.gif

For Xbox 360 you have got 2 options, depending on that if you have got slim or phat version. If it is slim you only need CPU block as the GPU was built into the CPU, but for phat version you will need a dual CPU/GPU block which you can get either from Alphacool (this one is cheaper here in the UK) or XSPC. For any of the blocks a 120mm radiator with push/pull fans is more than enough to bring the temps down below 50*C under full load.

Similar story with the PS3, you will only need a single 120mm radiator to efficiently cool everything down, so it should not put too much stress on the rest of your loop, even if you decide to run all the equipment at one time wheee.gif

For your PC guts I would use minimum of a 120 radiator for each and single block you install. Ideally it is a bit more than that, but 120mm rad is a bare minimum. (that applies to non overclocked system).

There are 2 problems you may encounter with your build:
1. The flow, you will really need quite strong pump/pumps to move the water around everything you will have there with rather big reservoir for easier filling the loop up.
2. You will need a separate PSU to run with pumps/fans as you do not want to end up in a situation where you play your Xbox games and you need to have your PC on to power the fans and the pump up etc. I would personally buy a simple 200W PSU with a power button on the back and run it as a separate power unit just for the water cooling loop. Just remember to power it up before you start any piece of equipment wink.gif

Good luck and let us know how you get on.

P.S. I will be cooling my Xbox 360 in Lian Li case too, but I will build a separate loop for it smile.gif

Edit: Some people used Supreme HF too col their Xbox 360 GPU and CPU, it is fine for a slim version as you only need 1, but with phat version you would need 2 so it is cheaper to get a specially designed block for that.

both the ps3 and xbox are the fat ones.
i was planning on going with the xspc block.

also the ps3 and xbox will never be on at the same time, so was thinking maybe running them both on a dual fan 140 rad. i'm going to guess that would be ok.
as for the pc, was thinking of going with a dual fan 140 rad.

here is my current parts list i was looking at
Koolance 1/4" (6mm) ID G1/4 Threaded Angled Nozzles Pair (NZL-L06P) 3x pairs
XSPC Low Profile Xbox 360 Original CPU/GPU Water Block (XBOX360A)
XSPC Chrome Raystorm AX240 Extreme Intel CPU Water Cooling Kit w/ Twin D5 w/ Free Dead-Water!
XSPC EC6 Coolant - 1L Clear
IandH KillCoils - Antimicrobial SilverIandH KillCoils

Koolance Universal G1/4 Waterblock GPU-200
2x for the ps3 (already seen someone use this)
XSPC AX240 Dual 120mm Radiator w/ Aluminum Enclosure - Black for both the xbox and ps3

list isnt complete, but thats what i'm looking at right now.
that kit comes with two D5 pumps. wondering if i could single loop everything together with the ps3/xbox - rad - pc cpu/gpu - rad - back to ps3/xbox
as stated at max either the ps3 or the xbox will be on when the pc is, but never both. other times just the pc will be on.
i run my ps3 and xbox threw my capture card before they even display on the tv so it has to be on for the hdmi card to give the tv a signal anyways.

stuff left to figure out, the tube connections to the rads and block for the pc gpu.
