Yes, a 360 will fit: http://www.ekwb.com/predator/case-compatibility-list/

But I am not 100% sure, if a 360 will make such a big difference. I guess a 6950x @ 4.4GHz is difficult to cool.
Did you manually adjust the voltage or is it on auto?
I think you can exspect to gain 2-3°C better temperatures on each of these steps:
- Predator 360
- Push/Pull fan setup
- very good thermal paste (e.g. Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut or even liquid metal Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut)

I added a another 240mm radiator with built-in reservoir to my predator to cool my 1070. With quiet fan operation max temps of prolonged gaming gives me 52C max GPU temps.

that sound a bit risky to use on a 6950x

Hey guys. I love the QDC aspect of this system, who wouldn't want to be able to pull apart your water cooling setup easily like this.

On top of the CPU and QDC GPU I would like to possibly add a QDC radiator and a QDC reservoir.

Would these parts be useful in creating your own QDC parts?

http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/p/Quick-release-coupling-CPC-127mm-plug_18763.html

And not sure which hose would be correct?

http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/p/EK-Water-Blocks-EK-Tube-ZMT-hose-16--11mm-matte-black-1m_56431.html

Let me know your thoughts.. would the pump in the 360 be enough for this kind of a setup?

The QDC's you linked have a 13mm barb which is the equivalent of 1/2".

First you need to know that it's bigger than what you already have on the Predator.

If this is still ok with you, then you would need the 19mm/13mm ZMT for those QDC which is the first of the 2 links you posted.

If you want to stay with the same tubing size that you have on the Predator, you'll need to find the QDC that have a barb of 10mm (equivalent of 3/8")

Great info, I had best have a look for the parts I would need then, thanks tor the input there that is greatly appreciated!!

And the pump? Would that be enough?

If you're looking at the exact same QDC we use here's the model numbers

NS4D17006 (female) and NS4D22006 (male)


As for the pump, yes it could handle an extra radiator and reservoir. thumb.gif

Excellent thanks! I've got a 900d to fill so this is a great project for me, first go at anything custom on the water side of things.

So would I need 10mm hose or the 11mm EK stuff I linked to?
post #5130 of 7088
Could you also recommend a good EK stand alone reservoir with no pump?
