EK-Predator Club & Discussion Thread - Page 672

post #6711 of 6783
Finally made the jump to a custom loop for my graphics card, got tired of waiting for the EVGA hybrid cooler to become available for my 1080ti. It's my first custom loop and I already see a few things that I don't like, for one the length of the hose going from the pump to the rad is too long. Had a blast doing it though, can't wait for my next one!

Yeah, rotate the pump counter clockwise a bit and get some angled fittings. Makes a world of difference.

Can EK give an idea on rad sizing for the new EK-MLC line-up? I'm assuming there will be 240/280/360 available?

Personnaly, i would just put these on some specific tubes to allow me to remove parts or waterblocks without draining the loop.


Out of curiosity anyone using this : https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-cable-pwm-predator-fan-adapter-for-gpu-50cm
There is absolutly no documentation available and i am wondering how it is working.
It is in addition of the pwn on the cpu?
If so how the system will regulate?
Fan first or pump first?
Can we custom this?

Not yet sorry. But since those 3 sizes were covered with the Predator, it's safe to assume that they will still be available.

Just from a cursory glance, it seems that this adapter cable is intended to replace the included 2 pin PWM signal cable on the integrated splitter. If using the splitter normally, the 2 pin signal cable would be then attached to a motherboard header/fan controller and that would be what gives the PWM signal to the splitter board.

With the GPU cable, the 2 pin signal header would feed back to the GPU fan header instead, meaning the PWM signal would be fed from the GPU to the splitter. The note on the page indicates that this should be used if you wish the Predator be controlled via GPU temperatures, which would only be done if you could directly feed the PWM signal to the splitter (not including the use of stuff like Speedfan).

That's weird, if i understand you correctly that would mean that one has to choose between regulate from gpu temp or from cpu temp but not taking both into account

They are pretty clear in stating that it should be used if you do a lot of GPU intensive tasks and wish the Predator to be controlled for the GPU.

As to regulating based on both temperatures, I believe Speedfan is capable of doing that.
