Enough Rad?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello all.

I recently put up a projection of a water cooling loop and asked how it looked.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1340865/water-loop-projection#post_18888011

Is a 240 enough to cool a 3570k and a 670?

I will be using the Phantom 410 as my case and there is no support for a 360 rad, but the case has some weird dimensions in the front. It has space for 2 120mm fans, but I am not sure a radiator AND fans will fit in the front..


So bottom line..

1. Is 240mm of rad enough for a gfx card and a cpu?
2. Does anyone know about the Phantom enough to see if a 240 could fit in the front?


Thanks.

I would personnally add another 120mm Radiator for better water temperature. (But even another 240mm would be better)

You can always mod the front of the case to make it fit.

A 240mm is enough for stock speeds and light overclocking (using reasonably high speed fans). Generally a 360 is regarded as the minimum for a OC'd CPU+GPU. That's not to say it needs to be a 360 rad. A 240 and 120 combination would work just as well. I don't know about putting a 240 in the front of the case, but if you can managed that then sticking a 120 on the exhaust should be easy.

I thought 240mm would be cutting it close with this setup..
I know that the 670 likes to run warm, but that could just be a false assumption because the cooler on the one I have does NOT do it justice I am sure.

So say I end up with another rad (be it 120 or 240), res--pump--cpu--rad--gpu--rad?
Any suggestions on placement? I know it doesnt matter significantly from what I have read.. but please feel free to share your info biggrin.gif:D

Aside from having the pump below and directly sucking water from the res the order doesn't make a lick of difference, so its all about what makes for the cleanest piping.

I think I will have to agree with all the above. My 3570 at 4.2 with a referrence 670 overclocked as high as I can get stable with a 360 rad tops out at around 60 (tops out, does not run there normally). That's with 3 AP15's on it, so I don't think you would be too pleased with only 240. This is in a caseless setup too so it's always got fresh air.
