Alright my laziness has won over. Forget a custom loop. When the AMD version releases I'm buying a 360 version , two prefilled waterblocks for my 290X CF, and one(or two) prefilled rads. Won't have to put to much time into getting it altogether.

If I were to use the 360 version in a define S, do you think I can fit/use another 360mm rad in the front

There is no plan to do pre filled rads as far as i know.

The define s can fit 360 in the front and 420 in the top so i would assume it would fit.

I would guess a full cover gpu block adds more flow resistance than a cpu block. Idk about the predator and how many full cover blocks the pump can handle, but I'd be surprised if it was powerful enough for a cpu block + 3 titanx blocks + 2 rads. That's a lot of stuff and while the pump is a good pump, it's not that powerful, it only uses 6W.

I would use just a Predator 360 loop for three GPUs and keep my Corsair H110i GT for my CPU, it performs a bit better then a Predator 240 for it (my Phantom 820 doesn't support two 360s).

And I wouldn't use water cooled active backplates, just three full cover blocks for my Titan X's. Been researching it. If they can prefill the blocks for use in tri-sli I'd probably go that route. If not set them up myself using the 360.

So it would just be the 360 and nothing else for the GPUs. I think it's workable. aarambo.gif

I just saw a Define S in the OCN watercooling club and picture gallery and I could swear that there is not enough room for two Predator 360s. thinking.gif

Unless the top Rad was a 360 and not a 240. The Front was most certainly a triple fan variety. Unless both units were of the 140 variety. So I could be wrong. blushsmiley.gif

Edit: Post #91473 is the exact post in that thread
and yep those look to be a 240 and a 360 and there really is not much in the way of room between the 240 in the top and the 360 in the front. I doubt that a 480 would even fit in that case without extreme modding. thinking.gif

I hope i'm right, been using this as a reference: http://imgur.com/BiBZVCO

May have been staring at it a little too much over the past weeks as it's what i'm gonna be jamming my 360 into.
post #1077 of 7180
Yeah no bro.

You might be able to stick a 480 in there by itself (I have my doubts), but if you loot to the right where the Specs show the front sizes, you will see that the 360 is too tall to allow for that.

And keep in mind that these are all in one's and not standard length Radiators we're talking about. There is a pump/reservoir combo to account for. wink.gif

And about your earlier question, like you've already been answered, the prefilled GPU blocks will come with tubing and QDC already attached on it so all you will need to do is to attach it to your Predator 360. thumb.gif

What I don't understand is why (in the manual) the 240 is only "capable to cope with expansion of the system with one additional waterblock, radiator and reservoir (optional)." and the 360 "is capable to cope with expansion of the system with additional 2 (two) waterblocks and 1 (one) radiator."

There is only one specification for the pump in the manual, so I'm assuming the same pump is used for both the 240 and the 360. Why does the 240 have less expansion options (disregarding the fact that it doesn't have QDCs)?

We have no plans for prefilled radiators.

It's simply to respect the basic rule of thumb of 1 120mm per component. Putting 1 CPU block and 2 GPU blocks on 1 240mm radiator would be pushing this rule. Like you said it's the same pump.
