P5N32 -E SLI, should I stay all water once started? - Page 2

post #11 of 45
Well thats one tall case you have. I would get a D5 pump, 360mm Rad and use them on the CPU and your 7950GX2. You can get another res or just use a T-line.

In your second loop since you have a huge case, you can w/c you NB, SB and mofsets with a 240mm rad without restricting your water flow. You can use your D4 pump and res to cut the costs down.

Yes I must get a D5 as this D4 is way to noisy. If I got another pump I dont think my poor old 480w would like running 2 pumps. I was thinking of going CPU- 120mm Res at the front of case then to the 7950GX2, but iv read a few places that a second rad before the GFX card makes no difference. As fro the mosfet blocks and NB + SB blocks that would cost more than my whole water cooling setup alone. The case is erm, HUGE to say the least, but thats what I wanted for ultra airflow and ease for fitting water cooling.

The mosfet blocks are £24.99 each plus 2x DD 680i blocks £26.49 each. Thats a total of £102.96, then add £82 for a 7950 GX2 block, that brings it to £185. Add another lot of tubing thats £14, add a second hand D5 they go for around £47, then another radiator, say a smaller 120mm one for £24. Thats a grand total of £270.00 uk pounds, $535 usd. Now I dont even know if I have a good CPU for clocking and im prety sure my GFX card has no head room for clocking as I cant overclock it hardly at all with stock HSF.

Now if I could get 3.8ghz 100% stable and get my GFX card to clock at least as high as most then I mite upgrade this over time. For now im stuck at 3ghz and need some reliable cooling for my chipset to at least get 3.2ghz stable. I see there are some Asus mosfet fans for these motherboards?

DD 680i WB, they are £23.84 at the time of this post so it should save you some money. Or if you dont mind the EK waterblocks at £22.49.

Morning all!

From what I've read so far, it isn't absolutely necessary to cool the SB on our board, so one can leave that out of the loop to keep the water heat and costs down.

As a temporary fix, have you tried a 40mm fan screwed to your northbridge heatsink? I did that and it made a noticeable difference in stability.

I'm thinking I might risk CPU, NB and GTX in one loop, and sort out a replacement passive cooler for the left bank of mosfets, and see how that goes.

I know given the hot parts in the loop it isn't ideal for mega overclocks, but hopefully it should provide a half decent o/c quietly...

You will be dumping a lot of heat into the loop so you might need to get a might need to get a 480 rad

wow good luck with that.

I'd be interested to see the results and water temps....

Thanks for the warnings, though. I think a cautious approach is appropriate - I'll add in the GTX first and monitor temps over a few weeks before thinking about the NB.

That 480 looks nice

Personally i would cool the graphics last.
To me it makes more sense.

Cooling the board and cpu facilitates a high yet stable overclock and you can achieve a decent overclock with air on the graphics until you get around to watercooling them.

Doing it the other way you have a cool cpu and graphics but a board that is not sufficiently cool to support the high overclock.

Just my novice opinion.

For your loop i would have it in this order for a nice and easy layout.
Something like this;
res>pump>rad>cpu>nb>gpu
