Watercooling i7 980x + 7990, will this kit work?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Will this kit be sufficient? http://www.frozencpu.com/products/20927/ex-wat-267/XSPC_Raystorm_750_EX420_Extreme_Universal_CPU_Water_Cooling_Kit_New_Rev_4_Pump_Included_w_Free_Dead-Water.html?tl=g30c321s1310

Another 120mm radiator will be added to the top exhaust.

My main concern about this kit is if the pump will be up for the task.... would you recommend adding a second pump? The pump the kit comes with has a flow rate of 750lph and a climb rate of 1.8 meters.

My case: Silverstone Raven 3, I will mod the case to have the 3x140mm radiator at the back (I have made measurements and there will be enough room to have it all inside the case). Here is a picture of where I plan on putting the 420 rad:



I have yet to decide which 7990 block to go for (which one do you recommend, ek, xspc or swiftech?) I have heard ek blocks are usually the best for gpu's but the xspc block looks much nicer and it would be nice to have it matching with the kit as well.

Here's my current build:

Cpu: i7 980x @ 4.25 (ht off) @ 1.35v cooled by a noctua nh-d14, max core temp 72C running prime 95 after a couple of hours.
Motherboard: Asus P6X58D Premium (I don't plan on water cooling it).
GPU: Asus 7990 (reference malta card).

Fan speeds will be at around 1,000 - 1,200 rpm so it will be a silent(ish) built.

I'm hoping for my cpu to reach 4.4 Ghz (ht on) with peak load temps in the 60's... and my gpu to reach ~1180mhz with load temps in the low 60's.

Any input would be greatly appreciated, this will be my first loop.

Why not choose the parts yourself instead of a kit?

1: Get the Swiftec MCP655/Laing D5 (same pump).
2: XSPC RX series radiator(s). These are the best on anything from 1200rpm and below. I would go for 120mm size radiators if I where you, can get much better fans.
3: Choose cpu and gpu block of your choice, XSPC Raystorm is the best right now, and EK I always personally choose for gpu. But if you like the XSPC look better, go for it! It's not like its that big of a difference between blocks if they are full cover.
4: Fans, the Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15 1850rpm together with a fan controller, these are great for radiators, silent and reliable. Also good for use in case.
5: Get a reservoir of your choice, this doesn't really matter, so get the one you like.
6: Some 1/2 tubing and fittings of same size, I recommend to get some big head fittings like these.

And there you have it, an all custom loop smile.gif
