Swiftech Apogee II and Integrated Pump/Rad question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN folks,

I was building my new PC and i had bought a Swiftech H220. But now with the release of Nvida GTX780s, i plan to add 2 card in the system....
The problem is that my Swiftech H220 says that the pump might be able to drive 1 extra radiator... BUT my problem is this
I plan to use 240mm Swiftech MXR-X20 Integrated Pump reservoir radiator, 2 X 120mm MXR-X20-QP Radiators, 1 apogee II drive, and 2 Swiftech GTX 780 full GPU blocks... would my setup support the loop? I am not in a position to add an external pump or reservoir due to my case (no space) so i want to make sure before i invest into it... please advise....

My apogee drive 2 ran two gtx 680 blocks and two rads, one dual 140 and one dual 120.

I advise finding a way to install a reservoir. they are quite helpful. What case do you have?

I am using an InWin D-Frame computer chassis... I doubt i cant fit a reservoir into it... that is the prime reason I am going to install the Integrated Reservoir on the single 120mm Rad and an integrated pump and Reservoir on the Dual 120mm Rad.. So my part choices are
Apogee Drive II CPU Block
2 X Swiftech Single 120mm Radiator (MCR120-QP-RES)
1 X Swiftech Dual 120mm Radiator with Integrated Pump and Reservoir (MCR220-DRIVE-R3)
2 X Swiftech Nvidia GTX 780 GPU Blocks

If i am not able to put a reservoir, I will atleast use Radiators with integrated pumps.. thats the idea for now... I wanted to make sure i can increase the watercooling components in it... I would like to watercool my motherboard and MOSFETs and RAM as well in future if my pumps are powerful enough to drive the liquid through the loop...

I see. From the images I see perhaps you can attach a swiftec mcres to the side of the HDD cage? Or somewhere else? If you already have the case just take the dimensions off the website and size it up.

Never be afraid to use some velco either. Or cut stuff. This is water cooling, and it could get ugly.

yeah, if my loop does not work, i might have to use velcro or maybe drill the motherboard block.... I wanted to keep it clean. From another forum member, I had learned that I can fit a Swiftech dual 120mm rad into the case without any issue.. that was the reason I got Swiftech H220 but now i want to return h220 and get the items I mentioned so that I can build my loop... lets see how it goes.. Thanks for the reply
