Radiator Overkill, what types of temps should i expect?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

As i was putting my build together, i chanced upon some radiators for free and 1 couple at really cheap price, so i decided to grab them all and watercool my pc.

Im having a x99a msi gaming 7 mobo with an overclocked 5820k at 4.5 ghz. voltage is 1.38 core. I am also having a 980 ti oc to 1500mhz and wih the ram oc to 8200mhz.
The cpu is cooled by the ek supremacy evo x99 waterblock and the gfx is poseidon 980ti asus watercooled.

Although i have not completed the build, i have added in 1 D5 Revo EK pump, 1swiftech micro reservoir, 1 360 monsta rad with gt 2150 rpm push pull, 1 120 ut60 alphacool rad, in push pull with thermaltake pwm fan, and a huge phobya 1080 extreme rad 45mm thick which has 9 120mm fans on it. 3 ek vardar 1850rpm, 3gentle typhoons 1850rpm and 3 cougar dual x fans all in push. parts are all connected through 1/2 barbs and 13mm ID 19mm OD tubing. all rads are external mount to the case, my ambient temperature of air is 27 degrees celcius in my room.

i know that the rads are overkill but im wondering what types of temps to expect for the cpu and the gfx.
secondly, if i add another monsta 360 rad, what types of temps would i get for the cpu gpu?

ill run all the fans at full speed.

hope to see your answers.

Any numbers posted would be purely educated guesses. Your actual results may vary greatly.

That said, I might expect to see load temps (playing a game) of mid 40's on the CPU and mid 60's on the GPU's.

The best thing about your setup though is that you should be able to keep things not only cool, but quiet.

If you run all of those fans at full speed it may start hovering around your room.

I say less.

Around 50 for the CPU, because no matter your water temperature, it is only so fast it can get rid of heat into the block and into the water

And around 40 for the GPU as these tend to be cooler and more efficient at transmitting heat energy

both of these are correct.

with my own build I found how much radiator the build needed to hold a 1C delta T while gaming for hours I needed 3 X 360mm radiators.
my CPU a 3930K is at 4Ghz and would top out at 49C
my 2 X 580GPU's are clocked at 850Mhz and would top out at 38C

I could clock the hardware higher as these are not high temps, but they are high enough for me.
for me to clock my hardware higher, I would need something a little stronger than standard water cooling, thus the reason for my current build.
http://www.overclock.net/t/1584867/tec-vacuum-chamber-build-log
with this build I intend to clock the CPU to 5Ghz, and the GPU's to 930Mhz.
while keeping my load temps between 25C to 50C.
at some point the amount of radiators won't matter, as the hardware is capable of dumping heat into the system faster than any standard water cooling system could remove the heat.
with the amount of radiator that is proposed for this build, your delta T will stay at 1C to 2C but the hardware temps will continue to rise as they are clocked higher.
