Anybody have pictures or have a rig with two 360mm radiators in a pro m?

One 360mm isn't quite enough for an overclocked 5960x and overclocked titan x

What 360 rad are you thinking about. The thick black ice radiators go ham.

Not going to argue with random guy proof. Do as you like.

It can be done but it is not optimal. It also will likely become a problem in higher ambients. Then your GPU and your motherboard components/RAM will all be sitting in warmer air no matter how much of the air you move out of the case. Without another intake the only air in the case comes from the rad (or through vents/cracks which creates more dust). Even if you made the top intake you would still never get the cooler air down to your GPU as the warmer air would come from the RAD fans (least resistance) while the cooler air would flow straight out the rear exhaust. If you look closely at the guys post on pcpartpicker he said something in regards the GPU were set to throttle at 64c and he also was using the top and bottom gpu slot (not the middle) so he had plenty of room for his GPU but the top was still hitting 64c at 100% fan (which must be loud and annoying). The top card required over 60% fan speed to keep idle still over 12c hotter than that bottom card at 19% fan speed.

So you could do it but you will be running hotter than you could be. GPU wont like it.

Well, he says he's running his evga 980ti kingpins at 1290 ghz, such low clocks will evade a lot of potential thermal problems. If he actually tried to crank those gpus up to 1500 ghz, things might be different.

If you're willing to trade some performance for how it looks, you can certainly do that.

What kind of cpu are you going to get, one with a lower TDP would help a little, one of the mainstream cpus with 95W instead of the 140W enthusiast processors.

The swing out side panel door on the EvolveATX might be useful for you when gaming.

What ciarlatano said, but a quick explanation.

Combining lots of airflow with a 360mm stacked fan radiator on a 91w CPU means air is not going to be warmed up much.

But why would anyone with with any common sense put that much radiator on a 91w CPU and air cool 2x GTX 980 TI GPUs? doh.gif

It has to do with the fact he has a FUBAR cooling setup and built for looks, not function. Cooling a 6700K CPU with a 360 radiator having stacked fans is twice the fans needed and about 3 times bigger than needed for 91w CPU. We also have no idea how fast the fans are running so no idea how much airflow is moving through the case. If they are running fairly fast there is a lot of airflow through the radiator 3x bigger than needed so air is not heating up much.

3x top intake and 3x front intake and only the back for exhaust means only half of the airflow potential of intake can leave case .. so case flows the same as with only front intakes, but the front intake flow about half of what they flow without top intakes.

Good points.

We can band-aid a FUBAR, but then it's a FUBAR with a band-aid. biggrin.gif
