Enermax Ostrog GT or another case

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi guys i would like to water cool my CPU and GPU and i was thinking about the Enermax Ostrog GT case but i can't put a dual radiator into it so i was told i could put a 120mm radiator at the back to cool my CPU and a 140mm at the front to cool my GPU https://ctrlv.cz/en/Lng6

1) But i want to ask if anyone has a setup like this and if that would be enough for cooling it and maybe overclock it a bit??

2) And also if i could run the two radiators on one pump and if it would be enough??

3) If anyone has other options for me like a different case where i can put a dual radiator can you please let me know but i'm also looking for a window at the side. I was thinking about the Zalman Z11 Plus but the window at the side is a bit small.

Take a look at the Fractal Define S case. It has lots of different radiator mounting options and has a large window.

I was looking at this one all ready looks pretty good and has everything that i need and would fit everything but you see i'm also looking for bay covers so i can add optical drive and fan control and the reservoir.

The Define r5 should fit your needs then. It has two 5.25 drive. Are you looking at a bay res/pump combo?

Before i looked up ideas
Well it depends if i can find a case that would fit a fan control and a res/pump combo if not then just a fan control and a reservoir into the bays.

After i looked at some ideas
I looked at some ideas and i found really interesting one that would sort me out
https://ctrlv.cz/10FW
Looks pretty nice, would save a bay because wouldn't have to use a bay reservoir

but my question is he has two dual radiators and would like to ask if you know if i could use one dual radiator for CPU and GPU cooling and if that be enough and if i could overclock as well??

The R5 comes with a 3 speed switch for controlling 3 pin fans. It only has 3 headers but i doubled them up to 2 fans per channel and haven't had any issues. I would recommend against a bay res/pump combo. The can be loud and hard to decouple. A cylinder res and pump combo would be better imo.

I ran a 980 and a 4790k on a 280mm rad with 1500rpm fans for a little while. The cpu at 4.8ghz and the gpu overclocked (stock voltage though) temps were around 55C for the card and 70 for the cpu. They are well within spec, but i decided to add more rad so i could push a little harder. You also have to take into account what rad and fans your using

Okay but if i get everything good quality for the water cooling that should do with one rad and then maybe later on upgrade?

Also i want to ask is water cooling a good idea like i looked at all the good things and bad things about it but

I want a gaming pc and play games like GTA V maxed out settings and would it be better for air cooling or water cooling? like i don't mean the price which is cheaper and all that i just mean like if i have everything well setup and secure is it more then 80% that i won't get a leak or if i get good quality pump will the pump last long and stuff like that?
