whats better for GPU cooling 8800GTX - Page 3

post #21 of 29
*whew* That's good the hear.

I don't plan on any OC'ing on the 8800GTX, but I wanted a near silent system. It'll be on the same loop as the mosfets and nb/sb blocks. The CPU will be on it's own loop. Both loops will have their very own 480GTX rad with 8 fans in a push-pull arrangement for each ... in an external box.

Yeah with them on their own loop the restriction and extra heat is a non-issue...

My vote goes for the MCW60..


It has consistently done the best from the several reviews I've read, and I get the same great results. Idle and load temps are always about 3-4C apart, that's awesome!

No, but looking at the manufacturers graphs on thermal performance they appear roughly equal with a very slight lead to the D-tek.

Pressure drop on the other hand is a huge difference where the D-tek is about 3 times more restrictive, so if you go that route, you really need a good high head pump.

The MCW-60 is more than adeqate and very low restriction.

If I had to do it all over again, I'd still get another MCW60, but I would try out the D-tek Uni-sink for the memory, hsi, vregs:

instead of the indivdual memory sinks because it attaches to the card mechanically and it's inexpensive too. I didn't like the thermal tape for the mem sinks and ended up going with artic adhesive epoxy.
