Corsiar SP120/140 Dual rad FX 8350

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I am thinking of buying a dual radiator for when I buy my custom loop. I am looking to OC to around 4.7ghz and have calculated the TDP dissipation to be around 223 watts to the nearest whole number (Based on the estimate of 1.4 volt needed for stability) looking for at least delta 10c. I wondered what kind of performance in terms of temps and noise levels people were experiencing on their AMD FX 8350.

Cheers guys!

we probably need to know how thick of a radiator you can fit in your case. Are you looking for push/pull, push, or pull setup?

IMHO 1.4v is very conservative for 4.7ghz. The 3-4 FX systems I have built and tweaked needed 1.45v for much over 4.5-4.6ghz. IDK if its bad luck on my part or if some people got REALLY lucky.

Other than that I unfortunately don't have much for you other than the last FX-8350 I built was using a Noctua NH-D14 and was quiet enough to have on the desk next to the user without noise troubles while running at 4.4Ghz.

Well I was looking at a dual 45mm rad for 120 or 140 fans just for CPU. If it's single fan option (Just on one side) I will have them exhausting from the top of my case. I can go push pull config but for the dual rad I'm sticking Coolermaster Jetflo's on them... long story short they can be loud for all that CFM. If I was doing push pull it would Vardar fans that I will have in pull so I can mount them outside the case and hide them under the bezel so they don't show, this option of two different brands sounds inconsistent though. There are no size constraints I just prefer the look of a 45mm compared to a big block on show. The Corsairs will go on two 360's or 480's that I will mount in the basement of my case to cool a crossfire setup.

I only estimated that because I'm running at 1.26v at 4ghz 24/7 stable... I couldn't deal with noctua's colours... Who ever thought cream and brown was a good colour for fans was not having a good day. No disagreement with the performance though. They are one of the best fans.

Well, there is the Alphacool NexXxos XT45 The link is for the 360mm, but you can estimate the 240 performance at about 2/3 of the 360. (its should be a little higher than that, but its close)
