New to diy water cooling, need parts, pump+res suggestion (need final parts list advice). - Page 2

post #11 of 17
I would definitely look at going with Yate loons (for cheap) or Gentle Typhoon's for radiator fans. The Noctua's are really good for general air flow but not at pushing/pulling through a radiator, unless these are new ones specific for that.

I agree with the above. Yates for cost effective performance. And Gentle Typhoon if performance and noise is the goal at all cost.

I like the Swiftech Helix 120's, got about 6 of them for my rad. But you cant go wrong with what the other guys have recommended either.

I'm trying to balance noise and performance. I have a 6 fan zalman fan controller (3-pin) to tunr things down. I currently have 6 blue LED Coolermaster M4 fans. I noticed there are LED versions of the Yates as well. Are these the same design as the non-LED yates? If i can keep the blue leds id love to do that. I was already prepared to give that up on at least the radiator fans but if you guys think the Yates are an equivalent and cheaper alternative then thats perfect.

Ok folks, based on feedback I think ive settled on a final build:



Also, not on this list because its out of stock at the moment, I intend to get an Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper 360mm radiator: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_457_667_1075&products_id=32770

I intend to cool a Core i7-3770K and two EVGA GTX 580 Superclocked GPUS in a single loop. My aim is to keep things cool and quiet while achieving a mild overclock across all of them. Probably bump the 3770 to 4.5GHz (from 3.9) and each GPU to 900-950MHz (from 850), depending on stability. My current air system can almost do it but the GPUs sound like jet engines and the CPU gets dangerously close to it thermal max. I really need to know at this point 1) Can the Alphacool VPP655 pump handle the flow load and 2) Will this setup get me temps that stay within acceptable levels. This system is used for gaming and video encoding so its not like im gonna keep these things pegged to 100% load 24/7 with folding or whatever. I'd just like my PC to be seen and not heard when I game. A second rad is not ideal and would be difficult to do. My intended setup, using a Mountain Mods U2-UFO Horizon case is to mount the rad to the inside front 3 120mm fans to pull in cool air from the front. Exhaust would be through 3 120mm fans in the rear. 1 directly behind the CPU, the other 2 behind my HDDs under the mobo plate (Board lays flat horizontal instead of vertical in this case). Ambient temp is around 20C in this room.

Yes, but just to be sure, I would run the two GPU's in parallel, not serial.

Yes, you will get better temps than stock and also much more silent than stock too., depending on if you decide to dial your fans. High speed Yates are rated at 2200 rpm. That can be noisy so you might want to put them on a controller for when surfing, and not under load. For a good controller, I suggest Lamptron.i

Awesome! Yeah i plan on using a fan controller as i do now to pull down the speed on the fans. I just got the 2000 rpms to give me a bigger speed range just in case. I dont ever plan on running full blast. 6 fans that fast would be unbearable
