Maxing out a BH7

Reposted from separate subforum:

Trying to get my CPU and 2 1080s underwater in a little Caselabs BH7.
Currently have just the 1800x in the loop with a 40mm 240. At 1.4v im getting max stress test temps of 78, gaming is 50-65. Id like to keep fans at 1500-1600rpm.

Im figuring 2 of these 40mm 240s could do it but not sure if itll fit in the BH7, and not enough is known yet to figure out if i want go upgrade to BH8. I can however fit a 240(120x2), a 120(1), and a 2x80mm. Does anybody have any input on this? Not sure if this would be enough to work with my noise levels, im thinking its close and might work if i went back to stock clocks on CPU, may be better off waiting till BH8 to see what I can get away with or sticking with just the CPU loop for now.

I would not bother with 2x80 mm rad. It's a toy and has less surface area than a 120 mm rad.

Sounds like you need bigger case. Be it BH8 or any of current models. You're right that 2x240 would work well, I personally would not go any lower than that. Better yet 2x360.

Yeah was questioning the capability of the 2x80mm, id never seen any data on them and only seen 1 in use. Will likely wait for the BH8 then and see if itll handle a couple 240s. Happy enough i managed to fit the cpu loop without mounting pump/res in top compartment
