Questions about RAD size and pump

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello

Im planning on water cooling both my GPUs and CPU in the same loop.

Specs:
Dual R9 390s from MSI
CPU i7 4790k
All 3 items will be overclocked!

Quesions:

1. Can the EK DDC 3.2 PWM Elite handle 3 water blocks + RADs
Flowrate: 1000L/h
Maximum head pressure: 5.2 meters


2. How much radiator space would I need if I use the ST30 RADs from Alphacool? Since they are only 30mm thick.
I already have a 360 RAD in my system and I thought about getting a 2nd one. Would that be enough?

Thanks in advance!

That pump should easily be able to handle all that even if you have 2 radiators. I used to run a single MCP655 with two GPUs, CPU, 480mm ST30 rad and a 360mm 60' radiator and did so for many years.
General rule of thumb is 120mm of rad per component so I would get a 480mm or a 360 and a 120/240 depending on how you plan your build.

Thats what I thought, thanks mate biggrin.gif

Will be ordering another 360 RAD and a new pump!
