Radiator Advice for a newbie

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I have 3 GTX 660 Ti graphics cards I would like to cool in addition to my i7-4790k that has already been liquid cooled. My loop already has a 360mm radiator in it. How much more radiator would I need to cool my graphics cards? I'm thinking about a thick 280mm but would like a second opinion.

Thank you,
Megaocher

OK, thanks man. I'll probably go for a 280 because my case has no room for another 360.

A 240 would be fine so you can pair with decent fan. Good 140mm fans is hard to find or really expensive

Nope, neither. There are a lot more fans in the 140mm size that are good and affordable than people think.

OK. Are there any 280mm radiators that you guys would recommend? Likewise, are there any 140mm static pressure fans that you would recommend that won't blow my budget? I'm trying to get some components that are a good value, so as I'm a newbie I figured you guys would be a good source of info.
