Can an XSPC RX240 Kit with another 240 rad cool a CPU and GPU?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi. I have the XSPC RX240 installed in my HAF-X case cooling my Core i7-3820 CPU @ 4.6GHz and I wanted to know if this basic kit could handle cooling my current CPU and a GTX680 as well if I add another thick RX240 radiator. Basically, I will have two thick RX240 radiators, and the pump that comes with the kit to cool the CPU and GPU.

My main question is: can the included pump handle the GPU as well? I know that everything else is good enough, but I'm just not sure if the pump is good enough. I don't plan on doing any major overclocking, just a little bit, on the GPU. I don't need it to run very cool or very quiet as long as it's... you know... safe temps.

If the pump can't candle it, I will probably not WC the GPU and just keep the CPU loop as it is. It's not really worth it for me to have to buy pretty much a new loop just to include the 680 in.

Thanks for the help!

That's absolutely enough radiator space smile.gif
Excess, even. You're good for a while.

The pump will be fine too smile.gif
