By that did you mean I shouldn't even consider it?

Because its the only distilled water they have, I'm trying to order everything from 1 site :/

think about it this way. more rads = more surface area , more surface area = more area to transfer heat out of water and into the air, OR an ability to run your system with lower speed fans and gain silence.

so ( and this is where i assumed you were using cpu intensive programs, as this is OCN, however i could of been 100% wrong to do this ) if you are just browsing the webs it simply will not help your temps, newish games.... it may depending on the game, and of course your overclock, and it probably will help under load.

best source for reviews on water cooling is martins, period. none better on the webs.

read up on martins for the bold statement.
thicker rads are USUALLY not more helpful. that is a case of bigger is better mentality.
key word helpful.
you will usually get MUCH more benefit adding another thin rad then more thick rads esp for the cost ( i am assuming you are using a reasonable brand rad ) because the cost of a thicker rad is much more then a thin one AND the cost of the higher performance, and relatively high static pressure fans you need greatly out weigh the cost of a thin rad and decent fans.

a thicker rad takes much more static pressure to push air through it. also gennerally need to run your fans at higher speeds to get gains
source

the cost of this "extra performance" is loss of silence, which in the end is a personal choice.

most people dont stress their pcs like most on OCN. most only need air coolers. for most people, adding additional rads IS pointless.


So if you want your temps lower with an ultra thick radiator you can do so. The proviso is you must enoy jet takeoff noise at JFK. LOL:rolleyes

He was saying that adding distilled is fine. There are other waters out there that claim to be cleaner and more "pure" than distilled, which would be a waste in this case. Distilled is all you need to add to the existing Hydrx PM. thumb.gif

Ok thanks smile.gif, I'm in need of more coolant, because I will be ordering the H220 and a 670 waterblock, for a upcoming 760 4gb biggrin.gif.

Adding the 140 was mostly because I wanted to see if I could do it, and I can’t say whether it helped cpu temps much since I didn’t test it enough. Adding the 360 rad obviously helped though.

How much additional rads will help depends on a ton of variables. For another 360, in one rig it could help just a couple c, and in another rig it could be 5 or 6c. What fans were used, what speed, how much restriction did you add, how exactly did you change the air flow of the whole rig, etc.?

Regarding problems with units, right now I have one unexpanded H220 in a rig, and the expanded one in another. I have been using them since they became available from Swiftech, and no major issues so far.

I'd like to know the same, except for a Boost. Best I can tell is having to use a universal block then heatsinks on the VRMs, though

I think there are komodos (gorgeous) blocks from Swifttech to the standard 7970 pcb. I am using two of nvidia versions and not only are they simply beautiful but do work amazingly good and with very low restriction. Flow rate after adding a second gpu (both with komodos) and a 140 mm rad to the loop (that already have two 240 mm rads and it is pump by a Swiftech 655 pmw) went down from 1 GPM to 0.9 GPM. Temps on the titans are around 31-33 and 33-35 C idle - barely 1-3 degrees higher than water temp on the loop) to barely 40 C under stress.

very happy with the blocks and system

hope that helps

Gabriel

hi guys well tried installing my graphics card into the h220 waterloop, and screwed up removed my cooler from my card and applied thermal pads and paste then tried mounting the water block and none of
the holes matched?
I have a gigabyte Gtx 670 windforce 2 bought a heatkiller gtx 670 water block, i checked on the net not much info on the windforce 2 card, i believed it was on a reference pcb. the windforce 3 uses a gtx 680 pcb.
SO now i have emptied the h220 and have a heatkiller paperweight.
Does any one know what water block would fit a gigabyte gtx 670 wind force 2 card?

Thanking anyone who can help.

This:

with these:

AFAIK there isn't a full cover block solution for the windforce 2 670. The latter link mentions an 8800GTX but they will fit and are needed on the current models as well.
