I also don't think the red be a problem with the pump running a cpu, gpu, and 2 rads. I think that's about the limit though. I belive it's be stated that the pump is fine with 2 extra components added to it. IE: a 2nd rad and gpu block.

I wonder if this holds true for adding a reservoir. IE: cpu, gpu, rad, and res. I'd guess yes.

I don't think a reservoir counts because it doesn't offer any resistance to the fluid to go through.

Yeah, unless your reservoir is so much higher than the pump that it causes the head pressure to be artificially a factor in the P-Q curves it is not going to do anything. In a standard case, it is a non factor.

I guess that makes sense. Res should be here next week!

Got a great price on a used v1.1 EK Predator 240 ($110 shipped). Also had someone locally buy my 4790k/Impact VII/16GB DDR3 for $600, which is what I just paid for a new 6700k/Impact VIII/16GB DDR4. Got lucky on that one!

Next is to mount my Noctua fans to the Predator, add a EK 150mm Res mounted on the Predator, change over all the fittings to EK Red fittings and shorten the tube up.


A second Predator rad/pump combo will go on the top of my S3 (have the high radiator top) once I get a new GPU and block for it.

The 980 Ti Strix is nice, but not nice enough for me to buy a block for it. I'll wait for 1080 Ti or god please a 1090 biggrin.gif

Just played a session of Wolfenstein: The Old Blood in 4K on my Dell P43Q17.

Setup:
Core i7 5930K @ 4.3GHz, 1.17V
2x8GB DDR4-3200 C16
ASUS Strix GTX 980 Ti @ ~ 1500/1800, 1.2V (unlocked TDP)
--
PE240 rad
Supremacy MX
FC980 GTX Ti Strix
Vardar F3-120 @ 1300rpm
In Win D-Frame Mini


Ambient = 22°C
CPU highest temps = 50°C (avg. of 54/47/54/49/48/48)
GPU highest temps = 40°C

Just saying you don't need obscene amount of radiators to get low temperatures thumb.gif

I've always suspected this was the case. If you're going for temp records, load your PC up with rads. I'm going with a single 240 for both my cpu and gpu and figure I'll be just fine. Thanks for showing I will be.

Those temps are amazing for a single 240 rad. Are the fans just in push? I'm guessing the open case is attributing to the low temps as well.
The total tdp of that loop would be around 380w, I'm guessing. An unlocked tdp 980ti at 1500mhz 99% gpu usage would be north of 250w alone. How's the deltaT so low? You said above that a titan x equiv runs 12c above water temp.
Excuse me if I got something wrong or am not understanding this well. I'm still new to wc and trying to make sense of this because I'm planning an all EK loop with pull fans at 1.3k rpm and looking for a very low deltaT around 7c.

Like you said. I'm pretty sure that open framed case has a lot to do with it.

Yes, two fans only. It's the matter of airflow, you can achieve similar result with any closed chassis if you plan it correctly. Like I said before - 12°C is rough normal delta obtained in Furmark, gaming is usually lower. Also, each GPU is different.

People have too low expectation from a smaller radiators. Fact of the matter is that with 360 radiator and the same setup I would probably get ~3°C lower temperatures overall (CPU around 47°C, GPU around 37°C).

Is it better? Yes. Is it absolutely necessary for achieving same overclock? No.
