Would this work?

post #1 of 12

If I were to get a swiftech mcr-320, would it be able to handle the heat load of both my 5000+ and 8800, yet still get temps better than my eliminator, or should I be looking at the pa120.3/360gtx for those results?

From what I've read the mcr is one of the more restrictive radiators. In a loop with multiple blocks I would go with a rad that is least restrictive. The pa120.3 seems to be the best in this regard. www.martinsliquidlab.com has some good info and test results of many things related to wc.

I have no idea how good of temp's you will get with a rad compared to your other cooling solution....

The Swifty isn't a very restrictive rad, or a GTX or a BIX or the PA, flow doesn't mean one will cool better then the other anyway....What kind of v-core are you running on your CPU? You can check out OC'ed wattage here....That 88 is what around 160W or so I think..So basically you will do alright with a good 360 rad on it...The better arad you get teh more heat it can dissipate, and the more even temp's you can get, they wont spike up quite as fast on you....

What kind of pump are you using? That will decide how much restriction you can overcome in your loop...If you will be running a D-5 vario or a 18W DDC with a free flowing CPU block like a Fuzion and a GPU block like the Swifty 60 w/ram sinks restriction will be a non-issue really....Keep your tubing lengths as short as practical and keep the fitting to a minimum...

I was thinking of getting an apogee gt to save money and a full cover block for my ultra. Most likely ill get the d-5 for a pump. I'm at 1.4v on my oc.

The Apogee isn't a bad block, just don't get the GTX it has aluminum in it.....Why a full coverage on the GPU? They cost more then a Swifty 60, they don't cool any better really and you cant move them from card to card....The 60 is a universal fit, as new cards come out they sell the new mounts to fit them for $5 bux or so, thats a bargain that would be hard to pass up for me..You do need to use ram sinks with them..I tried some of these on v-regs and little chips on my mobo, then I had to RMA it and they were hard to get off, they are pressure set instead of heat set and they work great..Enzotech BMR-C1 ..But hey if you would rather have a full coverage I'd grab one, everyone is different, they are a little more restrictive....

The D-5 vario is a really good pump, you can run a CPU and GPU and any rad you want with it, no problem...Be sure to get the vario, the "B" model has 30% less flow as tested by Martin and also by CrazyJoe, its just $10 bux more for the vario.....

I'd get the best 360 rad you can afford for it running a CPU and GPU....You could probably get by with a good 240 rad with higher cfm fans, but a 360 will give you a little breathing room, over-rad is good...Its not that much more to go from a 240 to a 360 anyway....

Your talking about a 240 rad, but isnt the mcr320 a 360 rad? I'm a little confused... Also out of the 360gtx, Pa120.3 and the mcr, which has the best perfomance with low cfm fans?

No I meant a good 240 rad like a GTX would be able to handle it but you would still be better off with the 360 GTX....The Swifty 320 is a 360 rad, your right....

If you want to use under 47cfm fans the PA would be better...But 47cfm and above the GTX looks to be the winner..This test they were under-volting 47cfm Yate Loon fans and the PA was better with them but with 47cfm at a full 12volts the GTX was ahead...So if your going to be using 47cfm and highwer fans I would go with a GTX.....360 GTX Beats PA.3 Using 47cfm YL Fans

I don't really consider the Swifty rad to be high performance, its OK, to me its about like a BIP...I've never used a 320, I had a 220 and it just didn't impress me a lot....Its good with lower cfm fans and if your not wanting to push your OC it would be fine and not very expensive either...
