Again I don't think he'll break any temp records but he should be OK. His overclock on the 4690k is really low voltage and the 970 isn't that hot to begin with. The 1000rpm is what conserns me the most though. You might wanna up that a bit.

I fiddled with my bios curve a bit last night and am running the unit at 50% till like 55c where it jumps up to like 65%

@ 50% the p240 is still way quiet and even 65% is pretty quiet. 50% is roughly 1300rpm. I think 65% is like 1700rpm. You really don't start hearing it till 80%+

I'm running a 4690k @ 4.6 @ 1.25v and with this curve under load I'm looking at upper 60s and it's super quiet.

Now what I am wondering is there any way to reuse the predator with pump and build onto it with the new parts I have ordered? And if so will running 2 pumps cause any issues?

Normally you dont want a ddc & a d5 in the same loop.. The D5 pump/res alone could handle that loop no problem.

Ekwb D5 Vario Pump/Res
1500 L/H Flow
3.9m Head/Psi

Ekwb Predator 240/360
250 L/H Flow
1.6m Head/Psi

The D5 would most likely stress out the DDC, or the DDC would starve the D5.

I don't know about you guys. But I am running a 290x+4690k both clocked on a swiftech h220 having vardar fans (the rad is thinner) and cpu never exceeds 70'c and gpu playing around around 75'c while the fans are at 1200rpm.

The predator 240 will handle a 970+4690k easy.

Thanks for the reply, decided just to buy a 240 rad and run a complete custom loop and look at selling the predator off to a friend at a loss smile.gif

Hey guys/gals,

I've read much of this thread looking for the answers to some questions I have about the 360 unit and the pump, but haven't found what I'm looking for. Hopefully one of you smart guys/gals have the answers.

1. I've read that the fittings do not come off the hoses. Is this in fact the case? If so, am I correct in assuming the fitting are still removable from the block and rad?
2. The pump being used seems to be a DDC 3.1 6W pump. Would the head pressure of that smaller variant be enough to sufficiently overcome 3 blocks, an evo mx and two EK 980 strixs, and the included radiator?
3. In regards the the second question, is the pump upgradable to a stronger DDC variant?

Thx in advance...

I'm sure all the fittings are removeable, only issue is with compression fittings it when they are super tight they tend to not unscrew easily from the tubing resulting in the whole fitting unscrewing. With some patience you can get it off.

Ask Howdy if it can handle it as he has more in his loop. Though I'm sure youd need more then one 240mm rad to cool all 3 efficiently.

Id be curious if it could be upgraded to a 10w or 12w, only issue would be keeping it cooled.

My 240 is installed with some results. This out performances any AIO I used before. Corsair and NZXT sat around 38 to 40C at idle, Now it's 30 or below.

Thanks exactly what i was looking for wink.gif

Will be really really tight with the Asus Maximus i guess, because of the big headspreaders.
