New quiet system, I'd like your two cents!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello!
I'm building a new watercooled system and I'd like your feedback on my component selection!
I'm aiming for a as close to silent system as possible while still being able to do some OC'ing

Case: Fractal Design Define R4
Motherboard: Sabertooth Z87 ATX
CPU: i7 4770k (aiming for a stable 4.5+ OC)
RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum 1866 MHz 4*4MB (for the looks wink.gif )
GPU: EVGA GTX 780
SSD: Samsung Pro Basic 840-Series 256GB
HDD: 1TB WD RE4
PSU: Corsair 860AXi


Watercooling components:
CPU-Block: EK Supremacy nickle + plexi
GPU-Block: EK FC Titan SE nickle + plexi
Radiator: 1x Phobya Xtreme 400 V.2 Full Copper (2x200mm)
Radiator fans: 2x BitFenix Spectre PRO 200mm
Pump: Alphacool CPP655 (Laing D5)
Coolant: Mayhem pastel ice white
Tubing: XSPC High Flex
Reservoir: EK D5 X-RES 140 CSQ (res + pump top combo)


How do you think it will work?
Is everything in line and no bottlenecks?
I know 1 (monster) radiator might seem a bit little but from what I've heard it should be alright, what do you think?
Will running the 2x200 mm fans, 2x140 mm Silent Series R2 (that come with the case) and the pump cause much noise?

Feel free to leave any suggestions or comments!

Get the Laing D5 vario. Its RPM can be turned down for quieter running.

As for a single Phobya Xtreme 400. Well its one huge radiator and as far as the surface area there is plenty. Even with fans that only run @ 900rpm its should be good. The only down side is that you won't have the option to rev up the fans in case you do need more cooling later (if you add another GPU or something)

Thanks for the response! The pump I'm getting is actually the 5 speed version so it should be alright.

As far as the radiator goes I think I'll stick with the phobya 400 for now and see how well it works. And if/when i decide to get an other GTX 780 in SLI I might add a 280 radiator in the roof if needed

I would say change that PSU.

Because the Cooler master V PSU is cheaper, same quality and no stupid software.

The Cooler master V is a Seasonic KM3 Platform, just like the 760/860. The "I" models is just rubbish.

But for that system you don't need more than 550w PSU
