What are your temps like?

I'm thinking about grabbing a 360 for my 5820k and getting a pre-filled waterblock for a GTX1080FE.
All in a tiny Enthoo Primo.. biggrin.gif

I think I can JUST about make out a motherboard under all that lol... wink.gif

For both aesthetic and cooling reasons, I'd say the extra Noctuas were not at all necessary.

Switched to a EVGA GTX 1080 FE today and slapped a EK-FC1080 GTX G1 - Acetal+Nickel with backplate on it.
Running @ 2126MHz core & 5500MHz memory with a 5820k@ 4.5GHz.
Cooled with a EK Predator 360 and 6 Noctua NF-F12 classic in push/pull.
With fans at 100% = 1474rpm GPU stays under 40°C.

Agreed atomicus! thumb.gif When I first started this build I didn’t even realize you could control the speed of fans. I thought they just had one speed so I was like, durn this Corsair H100i v2 is pretty loud I better order some “quiet” fans. So I ended up with extra fans (and a Predator 360, of course). Also the reservoir doesn’t add any significant cooling, but does add extra tubing. A more reasonable build would not have a reservoir, or push/pull, and would probably have better case flow and therefore maybe better overall temps if it were a 240 rather than a 360 radiator.

My understanding is limited. It seems to me that it depends on what fan speeds you want or are willing to run.
Running a 5930K at stock speed with memory at stock speed with fans in quiet profile ~500rpm GPU max at 45C http://www.3dmark.com/fs/9085673 with fans at 100% GPU max at 41C http://www.3dmark.com/fs/9085992

Thanks Dschijn! I'd rather have matching fans or no push/pull, but I had extra fans just laying around. Also, I think the issue of matching fans and/or relative rpm settings for each side is complex. In any case, seems like matching fans could only simplify things though, right?

Sure wink.gif
I just worry, that you can't match the specs of the fans and will have only a smaller effect than expected.

I got the same rig as you, i7 5820K at 4.5, Fractal define S, EK Predator 360 with EK GTX1080 as well but my GPU and CPU are both running at 47 ish under load. What speed is your pump running at under full load?
