Updating Switch 810 Build

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey lads, I'm updating my switch 810 (non special edition) before i begin my 900D custom build. I have some question regarding extra radiators for SLI and CPU.

Right now only my CPU is watercooled, It currently consists of a single GTX 680 Superclock Signature - I am awaiting for a 680 SC Signature 2 yes different GPU but same chip.

I current go an AX360 in the top with that is cooling my 3930k OC @ 4.7ghz and I'd like to bring 2 gpu's into that loop and unsure on how much more rad i'll actually need.

Would a Alphacool NexXxoS Monsta 240mm be sufficient enough? Or should i also team it up with a Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper 120mm mounted where the exhaust fan is?

I would love to go with a thicker rad at top, but with a RIVE it's nearly impossible even shaving back the fan shroud. So i'd like to go with minimal or no modding at all.

So summery:

Would an AX360, and a Alphacool NexXxoS Monsta 240mm be sufficient enough to cool an overclocked CPU and GPU's?

Or would i also need to add a single rad at the rear which is an Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper 120mm?

Would i be better off running a thick 60mm rad in the roof in pull configuration only? (will this damper temps?)

And a single monsta rad 240mm in the bottom? Would that be enough for an overclocked 3930k and 2 overclocked GTX 680s?

So if i run:

1) 60mm rad on top (only in pull) (will running in pull hinder temps?)
2) Monsta 240mm rad bottom (in push/pull)

Would that configuration be enough to cool an overclocked 3930k and 2 gtx 680s?

Yes, that should be sufficient smile.gif

What about running the top rad in only pull? Will this hinder temps?

You might get marginally better temps by running your top rad in push.

In my htpc i've got a 360 rad with push and a 240 ut60 with push. Temps are pretty good for a 3570k and a 680 sc signature 2.

You've got enough rad surface to run low rpm fans and still get decent temps, depending on which fans you are planning to use.

I know that your 3930k can give off a bit of heat when overclocked, but the 680s won't get too hot.

You will be absolutely fine with what you have planned, I would perhaps set the monsta up as push/pull, the ut60 as push and then install a filter on your rear 'exhaust' fan slot and set that fan as an intake.

You'll feed the top rad fresh air and create positive pressure inside your case.

Thanks a ton for your feedback man!

Now i would absolutely love to run the top UT60 in push but unfortunately due to the size of the rampage iv extreme and switch 810 I don't have enough clearance to run push beacuse of the CPU power connector at the top of the board.

Now what if i were to run pull but with the top rad's fans sucking air from outside in? I'll have a dust filter over the fans though as i don't want it to be sucking in dust into the case. Would that be a viable option? Probably not very ethical but I only have a choice of pull configuration (fan upside down pulling up and out) or having them push air through the rad from outside the top of the case.

I don't see why that wouldn't be a viable option!

I actually used to run my H100 like that, in fact I think Corsair recommended having it set up like that for best temps.

If you decide to go that way, then keep the rear fan as exhaust, and filter all intakes as you already mentioned you would.

There might be people who will tell you otherwise and about natural convection and how heat rises.

You will not be losing out on anything by having the top mounted rad as an intake as opposed to an exhaust.

I honestly believe you will get better temps by setting it up as you just suggested, so I reckon you should go for it!

On a side note, sounds like quite a build - don't forget to upload some photos thumb.gif
