What's next after H100i??? Need more cooling! - Page 5

post #41 of 47
You could take a look at the cooler master's AIO kits, which are expandable, but you'd need to fill coolant by yourself, or wait and see if swiftech releases their promised h320 (360 version of the h220) thumb.gif

I'd recommend against it for the following reasons:

-non standard tubing size
-loud pump
-performance is not as good as h220

As well, the OP's case does not support a 320mm radiator. Only 2x 240mm.

I think I'm probably done with AIO's at this point.

More than likely, it would be a custom loop with two 240 rads. One top, and one bottom. I can't do a 360, maybe with heavy modification to the front of my case, or another case altogether but I really like my 690II and I dont feel like cutting it up just yet.

Surely, with a suitable pump and block, and two carefully chosen 240 rads, I can get the jump in performance I am looking for.

I really think I can pull off 5GHz with my chip, and I'm willing to put the volts into it, just not without more cooling headroom. Especially when I would intend on Folding 24/7 at those clocks.

Thats why I really cant fault the Corsair I have right now. I fold 24/7 at 4.6GHz and it just does the job. Set it and forget it.

this is wrong. you can buy an xspc kit for $130. thats $10 cheaper than the h220 at $140.

either go with an h220, an xspc kit(not with their 750 pump, its crap), or a complete custom kit. its your only 3 choices. with an h220 you would only need to buy another 240 rad and distilled water plus biocide. with an xspc kit youll need another rad plus buy the better kit with a d5 pump. the 750 pump xspc includes in their cheap kits is usually loud and dies quickly, but it is a cheap start. you can start a cpu only custom loop at around $300. it would depend on the quality, performance and brand of the parts you pick. a few parts would be more aesthetic choice than performance such as a tube res vs a bay res.
if you go with a full custom loop, be sure to read all the links and guides for choosing parts and what all is involved in planning your loop.

I was talking about the kit linked earlier, though that kit has a 360 rad. The entry level XSPC kits at that price have sub-par pumps compared to the H220.

The H220 is expandable, has a legitimate pump and CPU block (based on the Apogee HD, one of if not the best performing CPU block available), and a legitimate copper radiator and good radiator fans included. It performs as well as any custom loop out there that uses a similar sized radiator (240mm, 30mm thick low FPI for silence)

As I mentioned earlier, the H220 is not a regular AIO solution, and with a second 240 rad I think it'll give you the performance you're looking for thumb.gif.

Guys... stop arguing like children.

The H220 in that graph says it's on 4 fans. That means push/pull. THe XSPC kit comes with 3 fans, but is also capable of push/pull. My guess is that if you were to add 3 fans to the XSPC kit, it would perform a few more degrees better than the H220. And if you click and go to the source, you'll see that the 2 fans make a 2 degree difference. So the stock H220 performs 5C worse than the Raystorm kit. To some people that is a lot.

While the H220 does come close, the XSPC kit is obviously better, as it has a bigger reservoir, a bigger radiator with more fans, and a better CPU block.

You're still comparing a 360 rad to a 240, and the OP already said a 360 won't fit.
