Asetek 760GC CPU/GPU Cooler Review

post #1 of 80
Thread Starter 
Asetek 760GC Combo Liquid Cooler



Works with:
  • NVIDIA GTX 470
  • NVIDIA GTX 480
  • NVIDIA GTX 570
  • NVIDIA GTX 580
  • MSI PE 660ti (per scotthulbs)
  • GTX Titan (per sheepdog16)

Credits to cravinmild. Found this while searching in OCN





From Asetek's eBay store ($69):
Quote:
Tube Dimensions:

Radiator to CPU: 8"
Radiator to GPU: 13"
CPU to GPU: 15.5"

*Does not include fan or fan screws. GPU not included. Installation instructions are available in the image gallery.

• Simultaneously overclock both CPU and GPU (what??)

• Automatic Fan Control adjusts cooling for combined CPU & GPU load

• Minimizes total system noise

• Uses a single 120mm fan port

• Maintenance free Factory Sealed Liquid Loop

Packaging: The packaging of this cooler is very simple. You get the cooler wrapped in thin foam, bubble wraps and papers. You also get the mounting brackets, screws and all and one page for the instructions.

Installation: If you are familiar with AIO (all-in-one) liquid coolers specially Antec Kuhlers, then you won't have much trouble installing this unit. Everything is provided including the bracket for the GPU. The only issue that I found is that on the instruction page, you need to put the sticky pad thingy on the other side of the back plate. Some new users might get a bit confused with this. Also, since you have to deal with both CPU and GPU, you need to take extra time in installation.

Performance: I forgot to take screenshots but the bottom line is, my rig runs hotter compared to the Corsair H100 on the CPU and Antec Kuhler 920 on the GPU. I'm a little surprised that there's a difference in temps with the Antec Kuhler and Asetek, probably because of the tim? I am using stock tim on the Asetek cooler.

Note: My CPU idles at 32~35C, GPU idles at 30~32C.

Intel Burn Test max temps (CPU - 10 runs):

Corsair H100 (Prolimatech Pro-PK-1): 74C
Asetek 760GC (stock thermal paste): 79C

Furmark max temps (GPU -15 minutes):

Antec Kuhler 920 (Prolimatech Pro-PK1): 59C
Asetek 760GC (stock thermal paste): 65C

Conclusion: I don't think anyone will be surprised to see that the Asetek 760GC fares worse than a custom water cooling setup or even against high end air coolers. Performance enthusiasts definitely won't touch this but then again, AIOs are not geared towards the performance market. I know my tests are flawed given the difference in thermal pastes (my ambient temps is also a bit high at the time of testing) but I still think that the Asetek cooler will perform a little bit worse given the same conditions.

Given the lackluster results, I am still VERY satisfied with the cooler. I think this will appeal to people who are using smaller cases or those who just prefers a simple and quiet setup without breaking the bank. For $69 (+$25 for my GT-AP14s), it is too cheap to pass up. No big, chunky heatsinks attached to the motherboard and no roaring video cards. The Asetek 760GC is keeping my i5-2500k (4.8 Ghz) and GTX 580 (882 Mhz I think) happy. A little warmer, but still happy.

Nice Build! thumb.gif

You said it perfectly "I think this will appeal to people who are using smaller cases or those who just prefers a simple and quiet setup without breaking the bank." That is exactly why I went this route.

So it seems like you are comparing performance of this against the H100 on the cpu and the Antec 920 on the gpu?
Considering the Asetek has the same rad as the 920 and it is cooling both the cpu and gpu the difference in temps is very minimal. I think it is doing a great job considering your Clocks on both cpu and gpu. It seems like it would be perfect in SFF builds where space is limited.

Those temperatures are most definitely supposed to be Celsius (C) not (F).

Worked on my MSI PE 660ti

I should mention I bought this to use on my cpu and MSI PE 660ti. I bought a dwood bracket since the description says it is for 470, 480, 570, and 580's. Turns out it fit on my 660ti without any issues.

Yes, the H100 on CPU and Antec 920 on the GPU, that's how I have my setup before which is kinda messy to me biggrin.gif The performance comparison was thrown at the last minute just out of curiosity. Not the best comparison but people already have an idea how the H100 and Antec Kuhler work so I guess it is not a big deal.

Thanks for the correction! Yes, that is definitely celsius lol.

Hi Guys

Going to be slapping two of these into Dual Opteron/Dual EVGA GTX 460 (with dwood brackets)... will post some shots when done. thumb.gif

One question though: What is the total height of the 760GC radiator?

Are you going to use the 760GC in two video cards in SLI? Someone was asking me this and if it fits in your SLI please let us know thumb.gif

Also, the height of the radiator is 6 inches.

Sorry - no I am not using them in SLI... 3D rendering - which does not require SLI. However, the cards are right next to each other and almost touching... if that is what you are talking about. DWood says that they stay 2-slot high, if you do not use the bracket that has fan on it. But you must have air blowing on cards to keep VRMs etc cool... which my side fan will be doing.

Thanks so much for letting me know the height!!.. I have 13" high to work with in the top section of case. Want to stack these between mobo and empty drive bays. Going to just make it, with a couple pubes to spare!

Since I am going to be buying about 6 new 120mm fans total - what is the best (quality and cfm/noise) I can get for under $10 each (on Amazon)?

Would love some 120mm fan suggestions. 2 of these would be on rads, two at front to blow out and 2 at back to suck in. Going in reverse. My Lian-Li PC V2100 Plus II puts the mobo upside down.. and with these rads needing to go where they are, I think blowing hot out front would make more sense in this particular case. Pun intended.

Edit: I just read your review of Corsair fans.. sounds like you dig them. Would these be powerful enough on rads if I was just using 1 each pushing through from back of rads?.. If I need something more powerful because of double-thick rads, what would those 2 fans need to be? How many CFMs? Keep in mind that just another 6 inches in front of rads would be 2 more fans sucking out front. (hope all this makes sense)

Ah, post those pictures any way once you have the cooler installed biggrin.gif For $10 fans, I usually use Cougar Vortex fans. The Corsair AF120 fan is not suitable for radiators, only as case fans. For rads I almost always use Gentle Typhoons AP14 or 15. Some people use Corsair SP120 but I haven't tried them yet myself.
