First Custom loop - Page 2

post #11 of 30
i currently use a black ice nemesis slim 420 rad (3x140) and it cools dual 980's & my 4790k , all overclocked. so, you should be fine. your results may vary of course.

I recommend the hardware labs radiators because they're high quality and they don't really need to be cleaned much (you'll want to clean whatever radiator you get, right when you get it anyways)

what is the performance different between HW lab vs alphacool UT60?
i actually prefer UT60 because it has multiple port. easy for filling and draining
post #13 of 30
Generally speaking hw laps have higher fpi (fins per inch) would could lead to better performance however that would then require a higher speed fan to compensate since their will be more resistance. The higher fpi also will create more noise but most of the time its negligible unless the fans are really ramped up.

im not sure tbh i went with the slim one because it's still very high performance and quality and my case fit it easier.

for filling and draining i just got a lid for my reservoir with an extra hole, popped a fitting with a long piece of tube on it that way when i turn the system upside down the reservoir drains directly. i have to turn it upside down a few times but that's ok.

oh and of course a funnel on the same tube for filling.

Do you have fractal fans inside your case mounted on the top?

You need to stay with the 480 rad, the P5 is built for it and looks a little awkward with anything less, and it won't matter which rad you choose because you will have enough rad space that the performance difference between them will be insignificant, so get the rad you think looks best.

I would go with the Raystorm Pro instead of a monoblock if you have any thought of upgrading down the road and want to reuse it. If this is your system for the next 5 years then go with the monoblock.

Not sure where the 36 feet of tubing came from because your OP says 36 inches, and that is what you should get.

thanks for advise. exactly my thought on 480 rad and cpu block.
i'm also considering thermaltake riing 140 rgb since its quite a good price in sg and i can use nzxt fan hub and GT fan on my other build

yes they work great. best fans i've ever used actually. they're some of the top rated 140mm fans, temp/decibel ratio (for push configuration at least)
