Recommend me a second rad for my 800D Loop

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm planning on adding my second GPU to my loop and need to add another rad to contend with the additional heat. I do not plan on modding the case in any meaningful way (I actually use that bottom drive cage at the moment) so that means either a 120 or 140mm radiator. I'm envisioning placing it in the bottom of the case. Here is my planned loop:

Everything is currently installed other than the second GPU (currently a non-ref being swapped) and the bottom rad. I've been looking at a few different options for 120mm and 140mm radiators, and I'm not sure which direction to go.

Basic questions:

Do pretty much all 140mm rads fit in the bottom there?

To what extent do I need to worry about thickness? Does it become significantly more difficult to route the tubing through the grommets with thicker radiators (i.e. 60+mm)? I'm assuming just a push configuration through the rad drawing up through the bottom (as drawn)

How much performance gain/loss would I see going from 120mm to 140mm or vice versa? Do I gain anything by going to 120mm (obviously not performance, but ease of installation)

Which rads are recommended? I've been looking at the NexXxos UT60 and XT45, as well as the EK XTX 120mm, the EK XTC 140mm and the XSPC RX120. I guess I'm most interested in the fit/performance of the 140 mm Alphacools (UT60 vs XT45)

you can put a 240 rad at the bottom with some modding

I'm envisioning this more as a drop in option without modding I use those two drive cages (I could get by without them) and I don't feel like taking apart the whole rig to cut up my case right now.

Did a build in a 800D myself and didnt want to use the bottom for rads, put a 140 in the back instead. LINK

Not bad, but I think I prefer the look of having it on the bottom. plus having the rear fan as an intake (as I have it currently set up) blows cooler air over the VRM's and socket area. I'm not trying to be stubborn here, I promise!
