mATX Watercooling Questions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm wanting to put my build under water pretty soon, probably around the time that we get our taxes back for the year.

I've got some questions and concerns regarding the WCing of my build.



Here's my build. Right now I'm using a Silverstone PS07 with a 2500k and Dual 670 FTW's.

Just for reference here's a picture of the case so you can see the internals when it's just been pulled out of the box.



Now, I know that I can fit a 240mm radiator in the front, and a 120mm dual thickness in the back.

For a stock CPU and Dual GPU's would that be sufficient radiator space?

And for this being a mATX build, what are some good radiators / pumps that would help cool sufficiently. I'm not expecting to have temperatures as low as 40 degrees, but I'd like to keep them below or at 60 if I can. This won't be a folding machine, so it's not going to be pinged at 100% all of the time. I only use this for gaming.

My house on average is about 70 year round if this makes any difference.

240mm in the front and 120mm in the rear or another 240mm mounted externally to the rear like my server (tjo8-e)
