It may be a bit of an over reaction, but it kind of defeats the purpose of water cooling. You will easily hit 70 c on gpu and 80 c on cpu with a 5930k and a 980 ti on a 240. Its less than ideal would be a better way of putting it

I really don't hit those temperatures.

During gaming the GPU barely goes over 50°C and i keep Vardar fans under 1600rpms. It all depends on how your setup is done and why you wish to water cool. Some people do it because they want the lowest possible temperatures, some do it because they want silent cooling within a limited form factor.

So I would assume a Predator 360 would be needed for a I7-5930k and Dual FuryX or would it be better to have the Fury's on a separate 360?

Just wondering did you buy you GPU block of the EKWB site or third party? if there site did you pay import charges?

A single FuryX is already producing a lot of heat. I think you could make it work, but don't exspect to be able to use fans with less than 1500rpm to cool that setup.

Personally id go 360 if you can fit it, 240 will barely give you decent temps. The longer the rad the better ALWAYS.

At 1500 rpm, it struggles to keep the gpu below 60 for me. it will bounce to 62 and drop, keep in mind i'm running the card full tilt trying to power 3440 x 1440. I'm waiting on a new phanteks enthoo evolv atx tempered glass than i am doing push pull with LTT nff12 mounted in the front, i will update if that gives better results for me

Hi Everyone, well obviously Kaby lake is delayed so I'm stuck with my i5 for a while, but I finished the build and well a picture speaks a thousand words...the GPU block is Gigabyte GTX1080 G1 and I have it stable at 2.1ghz 50c load and my i5 devils canyon is at 4ghz and 50-55c load...

I got the 240 predator from Scan and I ordered the water block prefilled from EK direct and I got great service...though tracking your parcel across Europe I wondered about condition but all came perfect..

I'd like to thank everyone for their thoughts and comments and as I upgrade to Kaby Lake I'll do a temp update here as well.

anyway here are some shots..hope you like them

I think this is a very interesting build for those build that cannot fit a 360 rad and still want to have the best possible AIO in their system to cool the GPU (which is the most important thing to liquid cool in my view).

So if you could share information about temps, rpm's and your subjective sound analysis already that would be nice!
