So the GPU block...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Tomorrow my GPU block gets here and so should my new GTX from when I did my Advanced RMA.

I have a swifty 60 coming for the GTX and I'm trying to decide if I should leave the NB cooling in there or pick up an air cooler for it. I really wanna keep things as cool and possible and flowing freely.

This leads me to believe I should drop the NB cooling down to air. On this setup my "MB" temperature is 33c idle while my CPU is 31c idle (fans are at 45% btw). I'm running 1.55v to the NB so I'm not sure if passive air is gonna cut it or not.

Just looking for some recommendations. If you think I should just leave the nb on there then sweet. If not recommend what you think I should pop on there. Thanks!

33C is good, my stock cooling was 51c and didn't get down that low until I added a Thermalright HR-05, nice cooler and allows 80mm fans...not those noisy whiny little 50s.

I have one for the NB and the SB, good little heatsinks and they are completely silent with the Hiper 80x15mm fans on them.

Right I'm just trying to decide if taking the NB water block out would improve my flow by a good amount and be worth it once I get the MCW60 in the loop. If not I'll just leave it.

I'd leave it in there considering you have the petra top pump and that mcw30 is really free flowing. With 1/2" barbs the MCW30 is less restrictive than any waterblock I've seen, at 1.5gal/min you only have about .7psi pressure drop...that's really good.
