EK-Predator 240 QDC results with GPU QDC

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone!

I'm new here, I'm doing a build and have already purchased some parts..just wanted to get your thoughts on this as I will be using a EK-Predator 240 QDC + GPU prefilled blocks to cool, Asus strix GTX1080 and a i7 kaby lake (when released Q3/4 this year) be housed in corsair carbide 540 air (hence the 240 not 360).

all threads I've read not many seem to of used the 240 in a CPU/GPU set up at all just wondered could I be looking at a face palm potential at the end of the build,...I know its all theory as parts arent even available yet...but any thoughts welcome ...cheers smile.gif

If you're not planning on overclocking, a 240mm should work just fine. Although a 360 would be better ofc.

Do you already own the carbide 540, or is it just the case you plan on using?

Unfortunately I already have the case, the plan was to OC CPU and a mild OC on top of GPU as looking for a sustained 2ghz, while gaming. I'm considering the possibility of if need be add a 120mm radiator to the loop if temps on testing are throttling on me.

Thanks for input

LOL would need to beg EK if they would do me a prefilled 120mm Raddie with QDC frown.gif

Predator 240 is well enough for 2011-3 CPU and a 980 Ti, overclocked thumb.gif

A 360 is barely enough for a 5930k @ 4.3 ghz 1.21v and a 980 ti @ 1450mhz 8000 mem, A 240 would be horrible

Nothing unfortunate about that case, it's an awesome case to air cool or water cool in. You should be very happy to have a good flexible case like that. Fill it and enjoy it!

Just going by my experience, with the predator 360 my cpu reaches into the 80s and gpu into the 60's unless i turn the fans way up to 1500+.

I agree that a X99 CPU and a 980Ti both overclocked are bringing a 360 with silent settings to a point where its getting quite warm wink.gif
Since OP just wants a 1080 a Quad Core CPU a 240 should be fine.

Thanks for the comments @Radnad, I'm going ahead with the build anyway. As I'm not going down x99 route, I'm sure I will find a good balance with the 240 in well ventilated 540 case. I Will post some temps up as soon as available and keep you guys up yo date on build progress.

I run a 5930K@4.3 and a 980 Ti @ 1.5GHz, it's plenty. Of course bigger rad is always better, but saying 240 would be horrible is overreacting.
