So you want
Inexpensive
Quiet
Remove a lot of heat (overclock)

Well, you can only have two of those at the same time.

The amount of heat removed depends on the amount of air moving through the Rad(s).It pretty much doesn't make a whole lot of difference what size and how many Rads you have. It's the air flowing through them that removes the heat. You can have single 2 x 120 rad with two loud fans that will move a lot of air through it, or you could have two 3 x 120 rads with the same total air flow through them but much 6 much quieter fans.

Yeah, some rads and some fans are better than others, but that difference is small compared to more or less total airflow through any of them.

Cannot help without a budget, but if noise and cost are your concern then I'd stick with air. You can't beat custom water for an overclock on air, but you can match an AIO with a lot less noise and only some planning.
finally quiet

Claes,


Budget wise I'm thinking 600€ for the whole custom loop setup without the cooling blocks for graphic cards

so in my current plan where I'm looking at EK as a solution that would give me a total of 420+2*280 radiator capicity in 45mm thickness for 540€ (drain solution and/or QDC connectors not included)


https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-kit-p280

https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-coolstream-ce-420-triple

https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-coolstream-ce-280-dual



Yes, I could let go of the whole custom loop plan and simply take one of the latest AIO coolers for the CPU and get the hybrid 1080GTX from EVGA that will emergy pretty soon since they have a fully integrated AIO but that puts me right back where I am right now in my current situation which is not the goal. The goal here is to create a custom loop respecting the restrictions, not walk away from the challenge all together wink.gif

Billbartuska,

I'm not sure I understand you correctly. You say that radiator size doesn't matter nor how many I have but I thought the exact opposite. I found it very logical that 1*140mm would require an insane loud fan on it to get it working, so in order to keep things quiet by blowing only as few air through it as possible I must maximize the 3D cooling surface, therefore it makes all the difference. so with 420+2*280 @45mm thickness I could keep all fans at a low speed with push only, thus meeting the goal of quiet and lot of cooling potential both at the same time. Is that reasoning wrong ?

A 420+2*280 plus fans costs twice as much as 1*140mm with a single fan. Well, maybe not double, but a lot more.

To even get to the realm of "quiet" you'd need at least a 3 x 120 rad, throw in some heavy overclocking and it's two 3x120 rads. and 6 fans instead of one or two.
