Radiator questions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ello all,


Haven't been back to Overclock in 5 years. But anyway, I'll skip the stories - I'm back on to building my project, the project I set out around the same time I joined Overclock. Anyway, it's been great.

None of the stuff I bought then could be used now woo! Only the tools remained though.

Quick question time lads, is 6x360/280/240mm rad good enough for the next 5 years? Or should I go with something more stacked, like 3x 1080mm rad.

I plan to have them lined up in one axis with 3x turbine fan pushing and pulling.

The immediate use will be for 3x R9 290 and a Xeon E5 6 core. Nothing fancy here. And yes, at this scale is it possible to just turn the fan off (AC VSD controlled fan) and let the water do the heat exchanging work only.

Pump will be a Danner 1800. Coz fcuk those little wee dc pump and leaking gasket and misaligned shaft.

Thank you all.

I've never thought of letting the water passively cool itself.... What kind of temps would you expect to get with a setup like that?

I dunno, I'm pushing a lot of water through a lot of radiator. I assume maybe maybe around as hot as my morning flat white? 65-70 ish, not too hot so that the cores get fried.

Goal here is to keep things quiet though to a minimum as the motor, pump, transmission are all housed and sound insulated.

EDIT:

This is because that at maxRPM what will happen is that I'll have a massive 252mm chunk of aluminium spinning at roughly 5900RPM thanks to the .75kW motor and 2:1 pulley I rigged up. The flatmates weren't impressed at 3AM.
