3570k and 290x under one 240mm rad?

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
Hey dudes,

Was considering putting my 290x under my cpu loop with my OCed 3570k. Do you think a single 240mm radiator would cool both effectively? I don't want to get a new case if I don't have to, and I'm not looking to have near-ambient temps... I just want it quieter than decent air-cooling, using the space I already have.

What do you guys think?

EDIT: Block received and installed, temps very good.

Post up a pic if your current build interior. Could figure something out for you.

A single 240 rad will probably net you results similar to a high end air cooled rig.
You should look into the Koolance rad bracket to hook up a 360 or 480 at the back of your case, mostly out of sight. An external rad will also outperform an internal one.

i have a 290 stock and an i7 SB at 4.5GHz each with 120 rad. only one fan for the gpu rad. here is my cold weather temps in BF3 after hours of play . . .





i expect to see these temps to rise about 5 - 7C come summer. i only have 4 fans in my sig including the one for the psu.

BTW, this is using a cheap xspc kit and ek block but CLU for the core and Fujipoly for the vrms. My cpu goes as high as 65C at load and it only uses MX-2 (been there for more than a year).

CPU would probably get downgraded thermals when compared to a high end air cooling system, your R9 290x on the other hand... that thing might get a lot better thermals. Your CPU runs cool, usually @ 80c max, but people usually shoot for 60s to low 70s. Your290x? That thing runs at 95c. Any cooling method is going to favor cooling @ higher delta temps. So yeah, you'd notice good thermals on the graphics card, decent thermals on the cpu.

As pepe said, an external rad is always an option.

Two 240mm rads would be good, or at least on 240mm rad and another 120mm/140mm rad. You have the fractal core according to your parts list, and that case is small and not ideal for radiators, unless you mod. In your case, you would have been better picking a 290x with aftermarket cooler, since making a custom loop for both cpu and gpu will probably cost around 350-400+ dollars including cpu+gpu block, pump, res and rads. You would watercool mainly for the noise since I doubt you will be able to OC your cpu more on that mobo. It seem you didnt build your system for OC or WC from the beginning which makes this upgrade give minimal performance gain in relation to time and money spent. A option would be to get a arctic xtreme cooler for the gpu if you feel the stock cooling is noisy and crap (which it is).

Some people suggest a rad on the outside of the case, thats a option but the asthetics will suffer alot, its your choice.

Thanks guys, I'll look into the Koolance mount. I have an EK block for 290x on the way, might throw it in for giggles to see if it is livable with noise/cools good.

Current setup (not much room for much else in this Fractal case):

My plan is for the Fractal case (Core 3000) to be a testing platform for watercooling before probably moving into a Mercury s3. I originally wanted to put the radiator in the top of the case, but the ram modules are so tight-pressed to the top of the case, it only would fit if I either a)Took out my RAM or b)Pulled my mobo everytime I wanted to move the radiator. And this is planning to put the fans on the TOP of the case, because ram or no ram, fans will not fit on the radiator inside the case due to the proximity of the ram slots.

So to get the radiator to fit, I ended up having to hack up the front of the case, fab up 4 radiator brackets, pull out the HDD rack completely, and drill/mount the reservoir in that bottom position. HDD mounting got weird... That's all I can really say about that. I can't turn the reservoir because then it's too close to either the PSU or the radiator.

If you still can I'd cancel the order for the EK one and get an Aquacomputer Hawaii graphics waterblock. Most of the waterblocks have nearly identical GPU temps, but most of the coolers other than the AC block have terrible VRM temps. GPU temps don't mean crap for overclocking if your VRM temps are too high.

On a side note I don't see a reservoir there. I'd either get a microres or switch to rigid acrylic tubing. Tubing dries out, except it doesn't because it absorbs water from your loop to prevent it from drying out. Your coolant level will drop, and with no res it only takes a bit to give the possibilities of bubbles running through your pump. Air can cause a lack of lubrication for the ceramic bearing, and can damage it.

It'll work fine as long as you take a little care to arrange airflow.

This is a 3570 at 4.6GHz and an OC'd 780 using just a 240 front rad and single layer of fans ... after like an hour maybe of BF4


The ambient was 27C. GPU peaked at 54C and CPU just over 70C
Water temp peaked at about 17C above ambient. Push pull fans and/or higher fan speeds would reduce water temps significantly and consequently lower component temps by the same degree. 1350RPM is quite low speed for a system like this.
