The easiest way would be to use a Swiftech H220-X.

like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7A5FzwWsbg . I would change out the CPU block to match GPU block though.

If you are going full custom then it will be mounting the pump that would be challenging. You can use on of the GPU block's outlets as a fill port to do away with the reservoir, and maybe mount a DDC pump sandwiched under the GPU.

Or use a XSPC Ion, small enough to fit on the right of a Titan XP i would think. Not used it before, so not sure how they perform.

It can only fit 60mm total if he wants to keep the fan filter. maybe 68 without the fan filter.

I checked out those XSPC combos in the past and thought about it, but after some measuring, it ended up being larger than expected for my O5S.

If anyone tries it, it'd be interesting to see it.

It really deends on the GPU length. For dan's build, a Titan XP would be shorter than his gigabyte 980ti, I might fit better. Did not look into it much, you may well be right.

I generally go for my tried and tested D5, my last one lasted ages and very quiet. Had the 18w DDC before and it was too loud for my liking.

According to Nvidia the Titan X (P) dimension are..

Height 4.376"
Length 10.5"
Width 2 Slot

Which should make it one inch shorter than my 980ti..

Once I get it i will re-review the space.

There's a lot of negativity towards cooling overclocked GPU and CPU on a 240 rad.. but I saw a guy run a stock cpu and gpu on a 120 rad..

I am concerned whether a 240 rad will be enough..

I'm only cooling the CPU on my O5S. But mostly because it will look cleaner with the aesthetic I'm going for. Shouldn't be an issue cooling both.

The general rule of thumb is that you 120m rad space for each component you need to cool plus 120m for each that you plan to overclock. You can do it with a 240 rad, but there are some things you would need to compromise on along the way for you to achieve a 4.8 OC while cooling your gpu.

First of all, you will most definitely have to delid your cpu, replace the TIM with liquid metal based tim. That alone will drop your temperature by about -10c. I would then get the EKWB monoblock for your motherboard since it cools your VRAM too and will help you achieve those high OC.

Second will be the noise. If you are pursing that kind of performance in that small form factor, the best combination will be the "Koolance HX-CU720V Radiator, 2x120mm 30-FPI Copper" combined with High RPM fans (2400RPM and up, the higher the better).

The third and most challenging will be the fitting of a full size card with a pump and reservoir. You could try to mount a pump-res unit like Sedici did with the EK-SBAY or you could forgo a reservoir and install a small pump. The latter will make it harder for you to fill and drain your loop but it is doable.

And as it always mostly the case with watercooling, you will HAVE to do some case mods, be it drilling, tapping screw holes or cutting whole sections to fit your components.

It is a tricky build but it is doable.

If you would rather have a smaller OC and less noise, I would still delid the cpu and get a HWLabs Nemesis 240GTS instead, some corsair MLPRO and adjust the fan curve. Also its advisable to install a 140mm fan on the back of the case to try to feed some air into your case since your radiator will be setup as an exhaust for your case.

Been a while since we spoke, are you still going to do the EK SBAY with the bracket I showed you or did you go another route?
post #2968 of 3942
I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with the EK SBAY and a bracket like the one you showed me. So far it seems to be the most reliable solution. I need to buy the unit so I can do some measurements so I know which parts I need to cut from the case and whatnot to fit the PSU cables.

thanks, I will have a look into these things you've mentioned - but delid my cpu, wow that sounds extreme smile.gif I did see a linustechtips vid on it

Hahahaha, Yeah. I know it sounds extreme at first but its quite doable with the right tools. There's a delidder tool that will let you do it with no damage to your CPU and with ease. By the way, that linustechtips vid (if it is the one I think) has been wildly criticized as the perfect example of what NOT TO DO when delidding your CPU.
