How many radiators do I need to cool 3 780 ti's, 4960x and rampage iv black edition?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi guys I've been reading a lot around here but I only just made an account.

Title says it all really. I'm designing a completely custom case and would like to keep it as compact as possible. What's the minimum size and amount of radiators to be able to cool 3 nvidia gtx 780 ti's, an intel 4960x and an asus rampage iv black edition?

Also, what do you recommend for a PSU?

Thanks in advance

id go for either two thick 240s or a single thick 360/480 rad.

For the CPU a thick 240 would be good, and a 120 or 240 for the motherboard, then a thick 480+240 at-least for the GPUs id say would give you pretty good temps.

If you have room, like 2-3 UT60 480's would be perfect.

If I'm able to cram in a 360 and 120, would that leave headroom for overclocking? And do you think the ax1200i will be enough?

EDIT: Thank you for your answer

I'd say 2 thick 360/480mm rads for all of it.

240 for the CPU/Mobo I'd say as a minimum, ideally a 360 IMO.

Then a 360-480 for the GPUs.

Thanks a lot for your answers. I'll try to redesign a bit to fit a 240 and a 360.

Triangular forms and pc components do not mix well as it turns out.

Usually the rule of thumb is 120 rad per device min. Good luck!

No, i don't think this will leave any headroom for overclocking, Using the minimum of 120mm per device at around 45mm thick you would need at-least a 360 and 240, that would be the least i would want in my loop.

How loud can.you tolerate your fans?
You could cool all that on a single 240 with delta fans, but you'd go insane in 5 minutes....or deaf.
