900D Radiator Set Up

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
For the following build, how would you recommend setting up the fans for the radiators in a Corsair 900D

Things being cooled:
Intel i7 3970X (over clocked)
Asus Rampage IV Extreme chipset
3x GTX Titan's (as of right now, not overclocked as I'm not too sure yet how well they liked to be over clocked... seen mixed reviews online)

Now with the 900D, we are wanting to just max it out. We are going to take out all the Hard drives bays, but one, leaving it with room for two SSD's and one big HDD. Also wanting to do a dual loop.

The chipset and cpu on one loop, and all three cards on their own loop. Would love to just fill it up.. with a 480 at top, 480 at bottom, maybe another 360 at bottom... and possibly a 240 in the front. Before you get into, "That's over kill, that's over kill." Well so is three titans and an iy 3970x. But got the money, want it, doing it. This is my first water cooling set up. So I'm still researching on how well push/pull works compared to just a push or a pull config.

So if you're experienced with this case. If a push/pull will work (as in plenty of room), then ok.. if we need just a push or a pull, ok that's fine too... assuming it performs better. I'm just looking for some advice on how to set it up.

Should I have the two bottom rad's just pulling in, not put a rad in the front and have that as three SP120's pulling in, and use my top 480 as an exhaust? I'll also have either another SP120 or a 140 in the back pulling in.

Idea's... shoot!

And yes I've looked at some of the other threads... though I didn't see one running two 480's, a 360, and possibly another 240.

Thanks

You can't run a 360 on the bottom and a 480,

max is 280 on a very tight squeeze along with a 480. and 240 infront. 360 holes on the last bracket that holds the fan on the bottom don't line up with the rad. Also not enough clearance.

max possible is 480+480+240+280+120.

Noted, see I didn't know that. I don't have the case yet. I though you could fit a 360 on one side and a 480 on the other. But ok, so a 480 and 240 on the bottom, with a 480 on top and possibly one in the front. But I'm still wondering what people think will be the best option on where to have air pulled in, pushed out, or if I should do a push/pull anywhere.

Also too note, other than little the closed loops like the Corsair H100, this is my first actually liquid cooling build I've ever done. And something I didn't realize until just now is powering certain parts.

I was thinking the Corsair AX1200 for my PSU just because it's a great PSU. But let's assume I don't do a push pull any where. I do just a push or a pull. That's 4 fans on top, 1 fan in the back, 3 fans in the front, and 6 fans on the bottoms.

How do I power 14 fans? If I do a push/pull, that's another 4+ fans. How do you power all of those? I honestly never even thought of that until just now.

You get pwm splitters to power the fans. I'm using them on the rampage if extreme.

7 pwm connectors x2 =14


I would get the sp120 pwm editions.
