Two 360's in the case?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Didn't want to start a new thread for this but here goes..

So I can squeeze both rads stacked in there and was wondering if I should do it. I don't care if it will add a couple of degrees. I'm thinking I'll keep the CPU rad drawing cool air and then the GPU rad drawing air from the CPU rad and throwing all this warm air inside the case. I'll have 2-3 120mm fans as exhaust.

I did search, some say "the air will only be slightly warmer" and some say "it will just ruin the whole thing".

Shall I do it or shall I just keep the rads outside?

What kind of rads are they? And if you are gonna do that, I'd recommend doing a push-pull with your fans.

They're GTX rads. Paired with Noctua fans (54CFM).

I can use 9 fans to make it push-pull/push-pull actually. But I'm concerned about the heat that will be dumped in the case. Will it be so bad it will warm the blocks and render my whole watercooling useless?

ur going to put the rads in the same area? u better have good fans on both sides to moved the 54cfm won't do the trick if u stack the rads together.
