Reccommended radiator size for a i7-3770k and R9-290X

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have the RX360 D5 Vario kit from XSPC. I have been using the kit to cool only my 3770k. Given that the 360mm radiator is 60mm thick, and with fans running around the 800 RPM region, I'm wondering if it will be enough to cool the blistering-hot R9-290X from AMD as well as my OC'd 3770k. Any advice is welcome, thanks!

I am running a 4670k heavily overvolted, and a 1240mhz 680 on a 240mm Radiator. My CPU temps sits ~ 55-60C, and my GPU never goes above 50C.

the 50-75watt larger power draw from the 290x vs. my 680 should be easily compensated by the extra 120mm of your radiator. However, your low RPM fans may be alittle slow. But, you can just wait and see; upgrade them if needed.

Summary: Youll be fine.

Thank you for the reply, that helps put my mind at ease about my current setup!
