Have you tried bypassing the Predator hub and connect your pump and/or fans directly to the motherboard to see if your receive RPM signal?

Loop order is fine thumb.gif

Worked on it last night for about 5 hours. My backes killing me, fingers raw and I'm tired but it's almost done. πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
I've had it running for 12 hours now no leaks so in a few hours I'm going to drain it and fill it with pastel Fluid then I'm done. Been a hell of a night and those damn rotary compression fittings are a pain in the ass to remove. Esp without the right sized Allen key. But I got it done...

Here is a little sneak peek. I'll post a picture of the finished product tonight. 😎😍

Why are the rotary fittings are hard to take out?
Are they from the EK Predator?

Would one 360 Predator be enough to cool two 980 Ti Kingpins and a 6600k @4.4? Or should I get a separate 240 predator for the cpu and just run the gpu's off the 360?
post #4137 of 7180
What revision is this unit on? PPCs is selling "v1.1" does this include the 2011-v3 hardware? Do these have the updated fans, etc?

If you are going to be expanding the Predator anyway, just add in parts you want as opposed to buying another Predator and having a CPU block lying around. A single Predator 360 won't do a very good job here.

It's the latest version, yes.

Kind of interested in this discussion as well since I might have similar aspirations in the future. I've got a 6600k@4.6 and a single 980ti running a custom bios so I suppose that is in essence an OC in itself. The predator 360 is slated to be able to run two gpus. If doesn't do as well with 2 gpus. What sort of additional components can one add to improve temps?

I think if you took the CPU block off and just used the 360 for two GPUs alone you'd get decent performance. Would just need the GPU waterblocks, a dual terminal and preferably backplates, especially on GPUs that have memory modules on the top side as well as where the waterblock fits and some of your own tubing and fittings for the GPUs and terminal. You'd need to drain and refill the unit though of course and likely add a bit more coolant.

Then if your case supports it (my Core X9 does) a 240 or another 360 just for the CPU, no customization needed for that one. thumb.gif

Hope that gives you some ideas. It would be a bit easier than adding more radiators but that's an option too if you adding two GPUs and the CPU. ph34r-smiley.gif

I pondered linking two 360s for three GPUs alone and removing the CPU blocks from them. Never did get any hard answers here if that would be effective for three Titan X's. rolleyes.gif
