Need suggestions on full loop.

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
This is my rig. I need some suggestions on a full water cooling loop before adding a 4th 6970.
Thanks

Sell your 6970s and get a pair of 670s... way better, in every way. Better drivers, better thermal value, quieter, and better performance...

I just sold my cross fire 6970s and got a 680, haven't looked back...

How much more raddage do you think you can fit in there?
Are you happy with the performance of your cpu loop so far?
Would you be willing to have an external rad on a mount at the back of your machine?

You're right. Was thinking about getting two 680s, but felt it would be better to wait for the 700 series instead.

The loop and block are part of XSPC Raystorm 750 RS360 Extreme. It keeps the CPU's temp down even during a 5.1Ghz overclock, but I currently have my CPU at 4.6 and I'm very happy with it. I just want to add my GPUs. I don't mind extra raddage in or out of the case. I know another 360 rad or a 240 if added might be enough, but where will I put them? Is the a case that could make that easily possible?

Have a look at the 6th post down.
A koolance bracket to mount the rad anywhere outside the case. I would go for a 120.3 or 120.4 at the back pushing towards the case as to not suck in hot case air.

Also, I am not familliar with kits so I dont know what pump you have. It is possible you will need a better pump but dont take my word. Others will advise better on that.

What I like about that bracket is that it does not use hot case air, nor does it dump it's hot exhaust into the case.

I dont know it you have room in your case or not. You know that, not me. The bracket if you dont. If you are looking for a water cooling case look to Mountain Mod or Caselabs. Caselabs being the better option but for more money. A caselabs will be the last case you ever buy
