Corsair 760T Owners Club - Page 118

post #1171 of 1664
Updated my computer since the last post in here, almost entirely new rig inside my 760t.

New parts include:
Intel i7-4790k (stock speed)
Asus Sabertooth MK1 z97 Motherboard
Corsair H100i
Corsair RM850
Corsair Vengeance 2400 4x8GB
SLI GTX 970 reference cards (+200MHz core / +500MHz memory / +60mV)
Bitfenix Spectre Pro 140mm front fans
NZXT 140mm rear fan
Noctua IPPC 2000 fans on H100i
Samsung 850 Pro 512MB SSD

3DMark results: http://www.3dmark.com/fs/4755488

Only parts left over from the original rig are the other hard drives, Xonar DX, and the case.

Hello everyone, I was hoping someone here could help me out with rad + case fan compatibility with this case.
To start off here are the components I am trying to put in this ( I don't have most of the core components yet):
CPU: I7-5930K 3.5GHz 6-Core
CPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken X61
Motherboard: MSI X99S LGA2011-3
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (4x8GB) DDR4
Storage HDD:
1. Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM
2. Seagate Barracuda 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM
Storage SSD:
1. Samsung 840 EVO 250GB
2. (2x) Crucial M4 128GB RAID 0
Video Card: EVGA Gefore GTX 980 4GB SC ACX 2.0
Video Card cooler:
1. Kraken G10
2. Corsair Hydro Series H110 280 mm
Case: Corsair 760T White
Case Fans: UNDECIDED
Power Supply: Corsair AX760i 80+ Platinum
Optical Drive: LG WH14NS40 Blu-Ray/DVD/CD Writer

So here is my thought process. I will be putting in the NZXT Kraken x61 (to cool CPU) on the top and the corsair H110 280mm on the front with Kraken G10 to cool the GTX 980. Now the H110 will have its own fans (which I will most likely replace), however, I am unsure if I will need to remove the first HDD cage. Also will I have to remove the 2 LED fans that come front of the case if I mount this rad? Or can I keep both the 2 fans on the rad + 2 led fans in the front of the cage? Will that be detrimental or will it actually help?
I am just worried about the air flow if I mount a rad in the front.

This doesn't matter much, but I was looking into getting a red color scheme, so I am trying to match up the fans inside the case. I don't mind the white LED fans in the front, but I don't like LED fans in the case itself, so I am trying to get something like the SP120's which have a selection of different colored rings which you can install. Unfortunately since I need 140mm fans, corsair for some reason decided their SP140's will be LED's and not rings. So any suggestions on what fans I can buy to match color scheme would be of great help.

You have a problem.

I ran into the same issue, but none of the corsair H series AIO lines are not long enough to reach the front. You will have to cut and extend the lines. (tricky)

Wait so, the this corsair cooler cannot reach the GPU with kraken G10 from the front? Wow that is surprising. Do you suggest another 280mm cooler for this task? Cutting and extending the tubing sounds like a huge hassle.

Here is what my old rig looked like. you can see the hose i extended (fuel line from an automotive store). The biggest hassle is getting the air out when you refill. Which is even trickier because as a GPU cooler the pump will normally sit at the highest point. But the liquid i replaced it with is better and I improved temps slightly when I changed it. So you can kind of see it as a upgrade "mod".

The other option is finding a new spot, or going custom.

Interesting setup. I was actually going through some of the popular closed loop water cooling tube sizes and here is what I found:

Kraken x41 - 16 inches
Kraken x61 - 16 inches
kraken x60 - 16 inches
Corsair H105 - 11.8-12.5 inches
Corsair H110 - 11-12.5
Corsair H110i GT - MAYBE 14 inches???

Since you have the H110i, what was the stock size? Seems like corsair is NEVER up front with their tubing sizes, which is incredibly annoying. I was only able to get the 14 inch figure from a random person on google after spending a unnecessarily large amount of time trying to get some more legit info. If 14 is accurate, by how much did you have to increase the tubing size? Looks like Kraken x61 has the largest tubing size of 16 inches, which seems to be just enough for what I'm trying to accomplish. What do you think? If this is indeed enough, what do you think about the fan layout that I initially stated? If I put this rad in with fans, would I need to remove or flip around the stock LED fans that come with the case?

The fuel line I used was 1/4" and I remember, so I would surmise that the corsair has the same ID. I had to extend the tubing 3.5". Measuring from base to base while deducting the extension I got 12.5" as the stock length.

You *should* be ok with 16" has that is what mine measures right now. If for some reason the other rads dont fit, you can mount the fans behind the case, and have it support the weight of the radiator.
Although it will be a lot more stress on the screws themselves this way, it should be fine!

Regarding whether you should intake or exhaust your radiator that is a bit of a tricky question.



I have all 3 radiators setup as exhaust, because I am overclocked and my radiators push out tons of heat. Due to this, I wish not to blow it on my motherboard, although you will get better radiator temps if you use them as an intake depending on your setup. Still, I run 45 - 47 C at load.

Here is a picture of how I setup my airflow. Not the most efficient, but I think its the best for my current setup.

First off I would like to say, amazing upgrade you did there. Due to how my desktop will be layed out on my desk, I can't go with that intake/exhaust configuration so I went ahead and did my own mock up here

With this, I am still trying to figure out how my fans will be layed out. I like your idea of mounting 4 fans on 1 rad behind the case, however, I was wondering if having just 2 on the rad and keeping the stock 2 in the case will be fine? Will it still mildly help or will that be detrimental? Perhaps I can keep stock fans AND put 4 fans on rad?

Thanks!

That is exactly how I have mine setup, 2 static pressure fans on the back of the rad and the 2 stock fans mounted in the OEM location. If you desire you can setup to where the fans line up with the 2 fans in back by using the rad mount points for the fans on the front. I did this for a little bit but I preferred the look of the front fans offset and there was no noticeable temperature difference.

Doing push/pull + the 2 in the front I cant but I can only assume the effects may be more detrimental than helpful, but I believe that whatever difference it will make will be negligible.

I have the Kraken G10 for my GPU and the furthest the tubing for any of the Corsair AIOs will go is to the bottom fan vent.
