Another radspace question.

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
I need to know how much I need for a tri-SLI 780 Ti setup with a 4770K. All in one loop. Since all of it will be overclocked I know the standard (#ofcomponents x 120mm + 120mm) formula won't suffice.

I have the same setup using EKWB waterblocks on my 3x GTX 780Tis + EKWB Monarch RAM waterblock, and EKWB Supremacy CPU waterblock with their special mounting kit for delidded CPUs; in total that is 5 EKWB waterblocks in total.

I pipe the liquid around the case in 1/4" ID (3/8" OD) from my Koolance RP-1250 pump/reservoir.

This is all assembled inside of my Thermaltake Level 10GT case that has 3 radiators:
  • 1x 2x120mm Koolance on roof with Noctua 120mm PWM in push config
  • 1x 3x140mm Black Ice GT Stealth 420 with 6x Noctua 140mm ULN in push/pull with 40mm shrouds on each fan and is mounted via the Koolance radiator mount with the adapter for mounting 140mm radiators on this mount which is intended for 120mm radiators.
  • 1x 3x140mm Black Ice GT Stealth 420 with 6x Noctua 140mm ULN in push/pull mounted on a stand on the top of the case.

With all these radiators my liquid's temps go from 27c (idle) up to 32c (stress).

With the EKWB water blocks for the GTX 780Ti just be VERY careful when screwing them into the EKWB Bridge (I got the serial one BTW). Initially I tightened the screws a little too tight and the end result was a cracked waterblock and a GTX 780Ti that had a swimming lesson which I wasn't able to get it to recover from...

I'll base my case selection on the radiators.

I'll be using the same waterblocks, including the RAM. I do hate the Bridge thingy, so I'll be trying to get tubing there instead.

How about 4 360s? I can probably all mount those on a 200R. With one inside the case.

Honestly, the tubing will not be easy to work with and the bridge will make your life A LOT easier when it comes time to assemble the blocks and install them to the motherboard. I'd suggest if you really really want to stick to tubing to at least buy the bridge and have it just in case, in the end you might be happy that you did buy it:)

As far as 4x 360s go, that might be a slight overkill. I mean I barely see the temperature of my liquid rise with my setup which is mostly 140mm fans, and since 120mm fans can have roughly the same airflow as 140mm fans (at a cost of added noise) you would probably be fine with just 3x 360s. I guess determining 3x or 4x 360s really boils down to what looks better with your case...

I'm not familiar with the Corsair 200R, but I do have my older 2700K in a slightly larger Corsair 500R and I think you wouldn't have any trouble mounting two separate 2x 140mm radiators inside of the case. If you go with 360mm rads then your definitely going to look at externally mounting the rads which requires longer runs of tubing which results in far less flow rates. I know this myself as I've seen my flow rate get massively reduced by having these two rads externally mounted, but fortunately I've got a second pump arriving tomorrow which should help to balance some of the pressure to move things along. I should mention that my Koolance RP-1250 used the PMP-400 pump, and I have a second PMP-400 pump and top that I'm going to place most likely with the external radiators to help the back half of the loop.

Well I know I can fit at least 1 NexXxoS Monsta 360 in the front of that rather small case. And the rest will probably go on the right sidepanel. As for the flow rate, I'll be pumping it with a D5 Vario. I'll look into the bridge.

For rad area, the amount of heat going in is what matters

you could do 300w+300w+300w+200w for the three gpu's and cpu for example

If someone had an i5 at a low oc, and a single 680, they'd use like a quarter of your power and need a small fraction of the rad space for water temps the same

I have no idea how much these rads cool.

You should be able to get an approximate stat how how much they can handle while keeping a water delta of etc 5c vs 10c etc - as water temp rises above ambient air temp, heat transfer increases, but warmer water = warmer components too

I have no idea what you just said XD
I don't have my GPU's yet so I can't measure the heat output.
