How many radiators do I need to cool 3 780 ti's, 4960x and rampage iv black edition? - Page 2

Do you want the ultimate water cool performance? then, 3 Black Ice GTX radiators with some good fans will take care all of your heat loads. See link below.

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

I'll give you 3 goal for your build. Out of those 3 you can only have 2. Your pick:
- Compactness
- Performance
- Silence

Now 3 big cards and a CPU could be cooled by a 360 and 120 rads.
But I recommend 3000 rpm really good fans. The 3000 rpm Gentle Typhoon fans would do just fine. Get the thickest rads you can fit, allowing room for push/pull (fans on both sides).

So you can get complete silence sub 1000 rpm when idle/surfing/spread sheeting.
But when under load, you'll need to crank them up. And 8 fans at 3000 rpm won't be silent for sure.

And with that much hardware, a 1200W PSU won't be enough if you want to do even a mild OC. Everything at stock is fine, but not much OC on a 1200 W PSU.
So you might want to look into th Enermax 1350W PSU.
Enermax is also one of the top brands along with Corsair.

Stacking radiators is quite inefficient and requires some seriously fast fans to show any tangible benefit over a single rad.

I'm sure those Deltas can push enough air through those rads, but I'm not sure if Vektor wants a turbine sitting next to his/her desk. tongue.gif


As PepeLapiu said out of size, noise, and performance you can only have two. You might want to consider an externally mounted radiator if size isn't an issue and you want a quiet setup. With a 3.120 and a 1.120 rad, you don't have much room for overclocking.

If you have some free time and want a more exact estimate of how much radiator you'll need, I highly recommend trying JackNaylorPE's spreadsheet.

I wish I could offer some input on your PSU choice but I'm quite ignorant about PSU requirements and OEMs, so I'll let someone more knowledgeable answer that question for you.

Good luck with your build. Looks like it'll be a nice one. thumb.gif

Yes I agreed, You would not want to do such combo with whimpy fans. But do you realized I am using high speed Delta fan 252cfm 5500rpm? Did you even see the screen shot of 5Ghz in full load? Look pretty damn good to me. Obviousely, this combo is very effectively cooled my rig very well.

Thread Starter 
Thank you alll so much for all of your responses.

PepeLapiu, those delta fans are crazy and would be perfect but I'd rather not have it take off every time I turn it on biggrin.gif. Thank you for the PSU advice I'll be going for the thermaltake toughpower 1500W. I could also go for the silverstone 1500 one. I'm designing it to accomodate both.

To put things in perspective, here's a screen shot of a very early sketch of the build. (please don't laugh, I know it's ugly atm and too small).


It will all be lasercut in glossy black plexi. I have access to a lasercutter for free thanks to the university I go to and have done some projects with it. It will have really neat cable management (white sleeved) that disappears under the motherboard with lightning underneath. For tubing I'll use hard clear acrilic with an opaque white coolant. The top triangle is a clear custom res, lit from the inside. Precision cuts will be made for the tubes to go in the case so you'll only see little of the tubes.

As you can see at the moment I made it so that the mobo is perpendicular to the backpanel (which is not shown atm) so that the IO is hidden at the back.

To make more room for more rads and fans I could design it so that the mobo panel is raised to a 60 degree angle, do you think that's worth it for the extra cooling? That would mean that the IO will be sticking out awkwardly. Tell me what you think.
