IS THIS SETUP SUFFICIENT TO COOL THE RIG DOWN TO A GOOD LOW TEMPERATURE? - Page 2

The STH10 is made for fat rads, just put two Monstas in it and fill it with GTs or SP120s in pushpull and call it a day.

In my opinion a build like this you should do yourself even if it takes you a bit of fumbling around its a very rewarding experience and you learn how it all works and how to troubleshoot problems that may occur. Let's face it fully decked out STH10 would be pretty heavy, you wouldn't want to cart that around to someone's workshop if something goes wrong.

You caught me right on. I am beginning to bang balls after checking with people around me into watercooling. I mean it my passion and it something which i am obliged to DIY. Learnt my lesson and definitely wouldn't be happy with this H2O setup. But definitely going to learn and read widely to DIY next time.

You are right. I did suggest that to my builder but he says the 85mm monstra wouldn't fit in. I was wondering it a STH10 can't accommodate it...what else can......Anyway i figure it out that most of the parts in my rig is recommended simply because they are trying to get rid of existing stock.

If it was not too late I would just cancel this order and I am sure you can get enough advice and reading from OCN to DIY.
post #15 of 41
The builder must not be trying very hard if he can't fit two Monstas.... It's like the biggest case in the world.
post #16 of 41
Definitely not trying enough. Jesus christ that case is big, and i thought my HAF X was on the big size. I think it's big enough to fit both my pc's in there. I call BS on not being able to fit the fans. And about DYI it's true, i haven;'t water cooled before. And i decided to finally jump into it and i have spent great amount of time reading forums now. Ordered my parts made a plan and i am ready for action. Hell if i burn bunch of parts in the process it's all for the greater good tongue.gif. Learning experiences is what counts, perfection takes time. Besides it looks more complicated than it actually is, the biggest problem i have is figuring out the correct fitting and pipe sizes. Seems like i got things that would fit (maybe) tongue.gif. But any way man next time DYI way to go.

..hardest thing about setting up watercooling (as with anything really)...is to actually get started...once you start doing something for yourself, you practice and get better at it...and maybe have some fun along the way...sure it can be costly (I've blown 2 motherboards with watercooling accidents), but it's fun!

I started with a XSPC RX360 kit (as I didn't know what components I needed to make a custom loop)...now I have made 4 PCs with custom loops (and sold 3 biggrin.gif)!!!

...in response to your original post, 2 x 480 rads seems plenty sufficient to cool what you have, however as it's a monster of a case (and has been mentioned already), there' s no reason not to have them in push pull!
post #18 of 41
Money is obviously not an issue for you, I would insist on UT60s at the least unless the builder has already bought them then you're outta luck and lesson hopefully learned.

To give you a comparison, I've got an SMH10 (the STH10's little brother) with a pedestal. I have 4 UT60 560 (140.4) radiators and 2 480 XT45 (120.4) radiators all in pull-only feeding on fresh air (for ease of dust-cleaning). The CaseLabs cases gives you all kinds of options for placement (like putting the PSU vertically just behind the 5.25" bays). Even if you used the normal PSU mount, for an STH10 without pedestal you could still fit 2 560s, a 480, and a 360 or 240 in push/pull easily.

Hi:

Just to elaborate on my overall build. I really don't have a good feeling about it. My friend told me my case STH10 should be using much THICKER radiator which have better cooling ability compared to thinner rad like the ST30 which my builder recommend for my watercooling build.


PC Spec
CPU : CORE I7 3970X
MOTHERBOARD : ASUS RAMPAGE 4 EXTREME
RAM : Corsair Dominator Platinum CMD32GX3M8A2400C10 32GB 4X8GB DDR3-2400 C10 with Corsair blue/white lighting kits x02 -

Summary:
It will be a single loop H2O-setup to cool 4 components – 3960X CPU, 2 unit of GTX Titan, and the Aquaero 5 XT. There will be 2 D5 pumps being used and one radiator will be running push and the other radiator will be passive cooling.
I was told the cooling from this setup is more than enough to cool all the 4 components in my rig. Is this really sufficient?

Bottom-Line:
IS THIS SETUP SUFFICIENT TO COOL THE RIG DOWN TO A GOOD LOW TEMPERATURE?

i will say go for Alphacool NexXxoS ST60 Full Copper 480mm x 2

and use two D5 vpp655 in the bitspower its 300L more pr. pump insted of the mcp655

the vpp655 have 1500l pr. houre insted of the mcp655 with have 1200l pr. houre

and you can buy the vpp655 as a singel version woth will say its only the pump and norhing more

that is makeing it thiper and you dont have to take the front of the pump
