In Win 901 - custom water-cooling challenge - Page 5

post #41 of 45
Very cool! personally not a fan of the external rad, but that doesn't really matter, does it?^^

I thought the challenge was to cool both a GPU and a CPU, though.

Thanks! Yeah I know, I just wanted to share my WC build. Might help someone who is looking for ideas. thumb.gif

I think that'll require a little more mods, like what Laine over at the official Inwin 901 thread did.

That or an ITX size card. Logic being an extra 120mm rad needed to provide passable cooling, which can only be mounted logically over the front intake, which is blocked by any full-sized GPU.

True dat. When you think about it, the watercooling for the GPU might actually make things worse. There's a certain point where it just doesn't really make sense anymore.

From my perspective, putting the GPU under water gave me enough space for a 240 rad.

Once you start, make something, then it can progress from there.
Over time you change a few things and tweak things and finally get a nicely working system.

Before:



And after:



Here is my 5960 @ 4.7, watercooled GPU and 360 of rad space, all inside the case.
There's still a bit of tidying up to do and space to find for the lights, but all in all, very workable and super cool, like temps I mean tongue.gif
