First time, need halp pls.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

This is my first foray into water cooling. I have an Enthoo luxe case which supports a 420 rad on top and 240 rad in front. My system is a 5930k and a single 1080. I sort of have a basic idea of what the cooling requirements will be but I want to hear it from you experienced folks because there is no substitute for that.

My questions:
1) Will a 420 rad on top be enough for the above processor and a single high end card? Pushing both with overclocks.

2) And if i go SLI will the 420 and 240 in front be sufficient with overclocks?

Many thanks.

The answer to both questions is yes. That should be plenty of radiator for the parts you want to cool. I'm setting up a loop right now with my 2600K and AMD R9 290 on a single 420 radiator and I expect it to be fine.

The stock TDP of both of those is 320 so that leaves you ~100mm of radiator space to cool the OC, it will work but don't expect to break any temp records. Imo its always best to put in as much radiator space as you can fit and afford to have enough buffer. A 240 radiator is a small expense compared to what your already spending on everything else and might as well add it now while your building the loop.
