Even out west we not too often see temps like that

a lot of houses are somewhere around 90* in the summer. not everyone has or uses their a/c. also, 75* inside and pc heat getting dumped into the room means it will be 90* eventually.

I'm wondering why you have not told all these good people, per your vast knowledge and extensive bank of links. That anything over 240mm or 280mm RAD is just silly?

ok so i have these parts
4690k @4.4mhz 1.35v
970gtx sli @1519mhz 1.275v (msi gaming)(x2)
temps were fine for the system but the tubes almost melted and i was heading to a disaster luckily system crashed and i found out my fans and cooling wasn't enough.

here is my cooling system
ek-supremacy ltx nickle csq
EK-FC970 GTX TFX (x2)
ek-d5 vario x-res 140 incl pump
ek-coolstream rad xtc 240 (6mm thick)
EK-CoolStream SE 240 (Slim Dual)(25mm thick)

Adding today
got corsair 120 SP quite edition fans for push pull config (only quality fans available at market now that is not absolute rubbish)
im feeling that my rads wont be enough to cool the parts or is it ?
shall increase the pumb speed to max (currently at 2 go to 5)?
post #74 of 85
Well the pump speed on 2-3 is fine doesnt matter more pump doesnt equal more cooling really you only have two rads ..
Yeah those fans are out they suck corsair new mag-lev would be a decent choice I think

-I dont think you need 1.35v for a measly 4.4ghz
post #75 of 85
I will reduce it tonghit about fans how about p12 or f12 noctua need fast answer if possible will they be much better
post #76 of 85
Only noctuas worth considering [for radiators] are the industrial series .. The black fans but theyre loud not only sp wise , but mechanically as well
Not TOO far off the mark they make great fans overall but for the money there are choices most consider to be of better , uh choice .. .

So yeah F12-2000 rpm would be nice, just realize you may not be able to power them from your motherboard on pwm or dc - depending on yoru board ..

Mine for instance max is 10W per fan output , and I have the ability to control fans either way on fixed rpm or to auto speed up or down according to temps

But are you running push/pull or only push is the main thing if push pull you can get away with 'regular fans' more so
post #77 of 85
ty for your help I'm running push pull -1 fan at the top due vrm heat-sink on mobo and i connected them to fan controller stripped down form my old nzxt case with max speed and they are way less noisy than my ac unit so i dont hear them at all.
in quick note my cpu @4.4 ghz 34 idle which is normal but gets to high 60 on load and 80 on prime 95 is that normal or i should check block seating and thermal paste since the rads arent heating up?
post #78 of 85
Just to make sure I understand correctly from the spreadsheets...

In general, push-pull with a thin rad would perform better than a push-only with a twice-as-thick rad, until very high fan rpm (2000+), is this right?
post #79 of 85
push-pull
a lot depends on the configuration, the type of rad, its thickness, the type of fans and their suitability, etc

but in general, push/pull always performs better as push or pull-only.... for a given value of "better" smile.gif and within certain parameters

For example: if you had a thin 30mm thick 240 rad with low air restriction like 7 FPI, it would make no sense to bolt 4 Screaming 5500 RPM Delta's to it.. there will be zero performance gain.
You'ld better put those Delta's on a 80mm thick Monsta rad.
However, with the above "thin" rad, you could put 4 1300 RPM eLoops or GT's on it and run them at 700 RPM for (near) silent operation while still having the cooling performance of 2 eLoops or GT's at 1300 RPM and have a potential 10-20% performance boost if you run them all at 1300 RPM

Like with all watercooling, its a balancing act. You use push-pull if you want low noise OR if you have limited radiator space and need to get them to perform near max.


But to answer the question: Yes
post #80 of 85
Thanks. This settles a bet! thumb.gif

Also going to use a single 120mm rad with push-pull to cool both my CPU & GPU in my SG13. Hold my beer...
