Water Cooling a New Miner

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So with this mining fad raging strong I thought I may jump aboard the boat and see where it takes me. biggrin.gif

My current 680's that are under Koolance blocks will be getting transferred into my Lian LI T60 rig. (DVR Rig) and a set of EVGA 780 TI Hydro's will be going in their place.

Now this rig is not under water so its going to need a whole new loop because I want this miner to be quiet and cool if it running 24/7. Since I will have my loop apart in my gaming rig I will replace the current Koolance 370 cpu block with their newer revised block (380i), and transfer the old block onto the miner rigs 875k chip.

As for the other components on this miner I have selected the following Koolance stuff.

Two 240mm x 54mm rads. These will mount vertically side-by-side on the T60 with ports at the top. I feel that 2 of these should be up to the task, heck even one would be if I followed the graph Koolance has, but I feel the 120mm/block rule is a minimum.

For the pump I am going with a single PMP-450 with the reservoir base and 60mmx120mm reservoir. This combo should make fastening it to the T60 easy.

Pump/fan controller is a CTR-CD12 I have laying around.

I plan on running the cards in series instead of parallel like they are now due to only one pump, and have the loop flow pump/res > Rad > GPU > GPU > CPU. Since there wont be any load on cpu I want the most cooling to the cards first.

I am currently stuck on fan selection. I used Triebwerk silents on my gamer rig, but those rads are only 11 fpi so I don't need much static and the rads for this loop are 30 fpi.

If I were to run push/pull on these rads could I go with a lower static and quieter fan? I want this to be silent.

I found these and they seem to be a good price.

Or should I be looking for a different fan and which one?

Honestly.... mining with nvidia cards is not worth it. The cards simply are not any good at it. Youll probably just break even with your electric bill.
