It's my first ever watercool though and it hasn't leaked in a year so I'm happy. But even this took a lot of effort, relative to air cooling, so my mind boggles at the work you guys put in for these aesthetically impressive builds. Right now I'm coming up with every excuse I can find to avoid tearing it apart to clean it out.
I can totally understand that....Ive been fighting myself on installing my second pump doing maintenance and actually putting the side panels back on and making the mounts for hard drives and the new pump... about 6 months or so... it really needs it though...

I have that with a Swiftech 240mm radiator cooling a 4690k OCed to 4.5 GHz and a GTX 970 OCed to 1518 Mhz core and 2000 MHz memory. Idle temps are 28C and load during stress test are under 60C. The additional 120mm really seemed to help, you might consider getting one.

I dont really want to spend money since im downsizing from the Enthoo Pro. I have RX120 but that is clearly too big. Im even considering not using a rear fan. Im going to put Vardars 3000 rpm up front to create a good amount of pos. pressure. But maybe someone knows better than I, Vardars on rad, or Vardars up front? My other 2 fans are Aerocool DS 1600rpm

I would say that you should always use your stativ pressure fans for The most obstructed placements, and a radiator is about as obstructed as you get it without placing a wall in front og it. Then you can place what other fans you have to deal with the general air flow since it takes far less to move air in an open space than through a tight opening.

Short answer: Use your vardar fans on your radiator.

Using Vardars on all intakes with no exhaust fans should work very well. You might find "Ways to Better Cooling" link in my sig of interest. 2st post is index. Click on topics of interest to see them.

Why 3000rpm fans? They will be very loud if you use the rpm. All my builds use fasn with higher ripm than needed, but with low idle speeds .. always PWM with case fans controlled by component heat usually using CPU and GPU PWM fan headers for PWM signal. Usually no exhaust fans with a 1.5-2.0 to 1 cfm ratio of case fans to component fans with case fans being similar maximum rpm ratio to component fans. IE 2000rpm component fans with 1200-1500rpm case fans. GPU fans are usually higher speed, but same 1200-1500rpm case fans work fine.

Radiators can be less resistance than case grills and filter are. wink.gif Even rear grills block 20-60% of their area. Front grills are usually more restrictive than back plus the added restriction of filter.

Silverstone Tek and Puget Systems both show how grill resistance and turbulence restrict airflow.

Anyone with an Evolv ITX? How are your GPU temps? And what cooling setup do you have?

Thanks!

Very good, but I am using a full block and custom loop. Temps on air for my MSI GTX 970 were 45C idle and 70C while gaming.

Thank you for letting me know.
But I am more interested in air cooling setups.
Some high performance GPU with open air cooler like the EVGA ACX 2 or such.
I read that the Evolv ITX is not very good in those scenarios because the GPU is too close to the psu and the 200mm fan cannot move enough air to cool the GPU effectively.
How accurate are these claims?

Cheers

Fair enough, although I suspect you would get better temps on the components on the radiator from using the static pressure fans. It's all conjecture from my part though, so personally I would use the SP fans on the radiator rather than intake in the case since it's the radiator that you actually want to cool after all is said and done.

True, but the cooler the air getting to the radiator the cooler the the coolant is. wink.gif Basically it depends on the difference4 in resistance between intake vents & filters compared to radiator. and how much the air warms up between case intake and radiator.

Best would be to test it both ways.
