Need some advise on number of radiators

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Currently my loop has a 360 rad and it keep my 7970 crossfire below 50C full load,
I am think to also include CPU in the loop (i7 3770, not OC at all) after I switch to 350D case,

The only problem is my giant reservoir may clash with the top 240 rad, so my guess is only one can stay there (haven't got the case yet)
I am thinking of 240 (front) +120 (back) configuration, I don't know if it's enough to keep both my GPUs and CPU at decent temperature.

advice will be really appreciated

Since your total capacity will be the same, you will have better temps than air cooled, but not what you are used to.
If you don't mind a radiator mounted on the back of the case you could get a GTX120 from Hwlabs. Double thick and rated to 400w.
I have one with two GT AP-14's on it. That should help a lot.

While I like the 350D, I think it is just too small. Perhaps the 750D and add a single 120?

750D is a good case and I thought about it for a while, for I just feel its too big under my desk

and I can't really say no to a 350D on sale :roll eyes:

I don't mind to have some small degree increase, since winter is coming biggrin.gif

Also I just learnt that reservoir size doesn't really matter.....I thought the bigger the better:p

More water in the loop just means it takes longer to heat it up. I have a dual bay reservoir and really like it. That and the pump are the only two things that have survived 4 water cooled builds. Post some pics when you get done. I really like the 350D, but barely get all my stuff in a 650D.
