post #12981 of 43923
Here is my issue:

I really like using Afterburner for the custom fan control.
I tried using Sapphire TRIXX, but it will only control the fan on one card.
I would like to run benchmarks using Radeonpro.

Is there a way to only use the Fan control portion of Afterburner without the OSD (RTSS) so it will not conflict with radeonpro, or as an alternative fraps.

Just can't figure it out or figure out how to use Afterburner to benchmark games by itself.

TLDR: I want to use AB for fan control and Radeonpro or FRAPS to benchmark at the same time.

Thinking of getting either the EX360 kit, or the 360 Photon kit as my first wc build.

What case are you working in?

That is absolutely more than enough to handle a 2600K and a 290X. Don't laugh but a single 120 would be enough... if you have big fans!

With a 360 rad and 3 1500-2000RPM fans you will be golden. Most people don't really understand how much rad space they need and the bottom line is more can't be worse than less!

If you have way too much rad space then you are going to find yourself able to be less than 5C above ambient with LOW fan speeds.

Now lets say that you have a 360 and with your given fans it can handle 350W at 10C above room temp well that would mean that if you threw 700W of heat at it then your temps would only be 10C higher. That means if your CPU was running max of 70C before then now it will be running at 80C and if your GPU was running at max of 50C now it would be running 60C.

This is why even a single 120 with a good fan would be enough for a 290X and a 2600K because 30C above ambient would be equivalent to a 6x120 radiator that was running 5C above ambient and 30C above ambient would mean your water would be less than 60C. Of course that is pretty darn hot but I think it should be enough info to get my point across.

It just boils down to how much over ambient you are and what how loud your fans might be.

Interesting - i believe air cooled my 2600k hits 75C under IBT, and the 290X at 65C under Heaven loops/BF4 - its the VRM1 thats killing me. Easily hits 90C at 1180mhz on the core.

My bro's H60 is dying, so i might give him my venomous which will open me up to trying decent watercooling. The Swiftech rep said the H320 should be more than enough to handle a 2600k/290X overclocked but i took it with a grain of salt.

I'll be happy with keeping the same temps but brining VRM temps down, hoping to squeeze a bit more out of the 290X though (1230+)

Rad -> 290X -> RES/Pump (Photon) -> 2600k?

Looks arent too much of a concern now since its in another room, but my next build may be a wc Bitfenix mini itx.

I think 360mm will be plenty, it really comes down to fans. You'll probably want 1700-2200 RPM. But these can make some noise. If you want super quiet then you might want some more rad space.

It sounds like you don't own any of the water cooling parts yet right?

If that is the case open up a new thread in the water cooling section with your parts, case, proposed build, and anything that you already own that you can re-use (like fans) and what your goals might be.

You want to fit the largest radiator possible inside your case. If your case supports a 3x140 then grab a 3x140 if the biggest it supports is a 3x120 then grab the 3x120. Whatever the largest you can get it. After that I highly recommend that you get a KIT instead of putting it together part by part. The absolute best value in kits would be the XSPC 750 kits. So if a 3x120 is the largest you can fit then grab this kit , and(2) extra fittings and an EK block.

For a total of $267.12 + shipping after your 5.1% discount code.

The radiator is more than enough to handle your system, the fans are nice and quiet, the fittings are of great quality and 7/16" tubing on 1/2" barbs means NO LEAKS and the tightest safest fit possible. The pump in that kit has enough power to handle the raystorm and the full coverage 290 block without issue and you could even run a second 290 later without having to upgrade the PUMP.

The XSPC AX360 Photon Kit comes with 3x1650rpm fans..i also have 2xCM Sickle flow (2k rpm/High static pressure) fans that i can use instead or add on as push/pull.

But ill probably replace 2 of the 3 fans as i dont want to add much bulk noise. For $269 i dont think i can build a kit seperately that will be as good, still have to get tubing/fittings/1xfan if i were to use the sickle flows.

Although..if i wanted to try rigid tubing since it looks so cool tongue.gif then maybe itll be around the same price.

Oh nice - i might do that. I dont have anything for WC other than 2 high pressure static fans. But im thinking of the XSPC Photon 360 kit, only cuz it has that cool tube reservoir thing and that i already purchased the XSPC backplate for my 290X (for aesthetic/strengthening purposes).

Can i mix and match a XSPC backplate with an EK block? And will that pump support cpu + 2 gpus? But honestly i dont think ill ever go CF again...maybe SLI though...

Is it possible to bolt on a 290 back plate on a 290 with a stock cooler? Just want it to look better ^^

And does a r9 290x backplate fit a 290? it should since it should be the same card? rolleyes.gif

You probably can if you get extra long screws so the shroud can connect to the backplate. Probably have to sandwich it all together before screwing things down.

290(X) backplates have the same layout.

Oh yeah, I definitely think that's the way to go. You get a much better pump. Of course your way is more expensive than givemedew's suggestion, I think he was just trying to get your feet wet in a budget friendly way.

I'm pretty sure you will need to use the XSPC 290x block in order to use the XSPC backplate. But I'm not 100% sure. But since you're getting XSPC everything else it couldn't hurt right?

Oh wow, that Photon kit comes with compressions too, that's nice, you need two more of those for the GPU. And I think you will want to use Primochill Advance LRT tubing (7/16" ID). The XSPC stuff that comes with your kit will likely give you plasticizer issues.
