Without the panel they never go above 47°.
The 140 fan on the back of the case it's already turned as intake, and i've added 2 other 140mm fans on top as intake too...the predator has a push/pull setup with 6 vardars and it's mounted in the front of the case pushing air outside of it.
Ah, I've already reapplied the TP on the GPU biggrin.gif

I have the same case, you can check my temps a few post above. The only time I take off the front panel is when running stress test and I have the electric fan blowing directly on it. My 360mm is set up with push/pull because I mounted it in the front and it really helps intake much needed air inside then exhausted with additional 2x 140mm on top and 140mm in the back.

IMO your temps are fine, but maybe try setting up your push/pull to intake instead. My avg temps when gaming on my cpu is mid 50c and 55c-60c on my gpu, but both usually shares the same temp over time. It doesnt help that my room is always warm.

There is a mod where you ad spacers on the front panel, it doesn't do any damaging to the case. It keeps the same aesthetics while opening up the front to more air.

Do you have any link of it?

Guys,

I am thinking to purchase another Predator 240 QDC, remove the CPU block, and mod it to expose only the QDC.

Now, if correct, the Predator 360 flow is GPU (via the QDC), then CPU, and from CPU to radiator.

If I plug Predator 240 between 360 and GPU, will it lower the water temp goes to the GPU? Or plug it between GPU and CPU, to keep the water at lower temp when goes to 360 rad after passing the CPU?

I have a GTX1080 at 45-48C max @ 2164 when benching, and a terrible 4930K @ 4.5 which runs very hot when stressed, all way to 62C. (previously had a 4820K @ 4.9 and wasn't running more than 45C with the 360 and a Fury Nano @ 1120/550).

My main target is to lower the 1080 temperature even further, I do not care if the 4930K runs at 62C when benching.

Thanks

The loop is:
Predator (rad -> res -> pump) -> CPU -> GPU -> Predator.
You can do it like I did an just build an expansion yourself.

Fantastic, thank you. I will do so. thumb.gif

Going to plug the Predator 240 between CPU and GPU then
post #5337 of 7105
That is where I will put my expansion as well!
In general it doesn't matter where the rad is in the loop, because it will not make a difference in performance.
post #5338 of 7105
But I believe it will lower the temps yes?
post #5339 of 7105
Of course, but it doesn't matter if you place it before or after the GPU in the loop. smile.gif

Kind of add me to the Predator Club. Just ordered a 240 v1.1 for my client. Should be here Next Tuesday or so. So yay, I finally get my hands on a Predator! wheee.gif
