Koolance Exos-2 - what you think

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, so I'm just jumping into the world of water cooling. Just picked up a Koolance Exos system, 3 EK GPU waterblocks, and a EK cpu waterblock. System specs is listed below:

HAF-X
GA - X58 - UD3R
i7-920 D0
3 x GTX 570
ULTRA X4 1050W

CAN I DO IT? smile.gif Will the Koolance system be able to handle all this? I only plan on overclocking the CPU. I am aware the PSU may be a little under powered. What you guys think?

Advice? Suggestions? Any info or two cents is appreciated.

Thank you.
Frank

The Exos is overpriced and comes without blocks but with an aluminium rad which means you need to use the Koolance fluids to preserve the warranty and reduce the risk of galvanic corrosion. It does have a decent pump and look nice.

Ideally for that setup you'd need a minimum of a Quad rad or maybe a 360 and 240. If you have a low tolerance to noise levels then even more rad means you can run slower fans.
