First W/C setup - Page 3

post #21 of 29
Thread Starter 
I ordered the complete Viperjohn kit, so I'm using his heatsinks and his modded SB heatsink and fan. I figured he has ben play'n with 780i enuff to know whats good. To tell you the truth all i'm really sweating about this is if the 120.3 can handle all this. I'm hoping with those Scythes I can push enuf air thru to allow it to handle the heat. But then again I'm a total noob to W/C, which is why I chose to consult with you guys

One PA120.3 would be pushing it for all that on one loop. Also, the GTX360 will beat out the PA120.3 if you're gonna use high CFM fans. I'd take a look at the GTX480 you really wanna run all this on one loop.

Well I'm not hellbent on one loop and the 120.3 is already on the way. So if I run 2 loops(CPU/NB in one- and GPUs in another) will I need another 120.3 or can i use a Black Ice GT Stealth 360 for the GPUs?

If you're gonna run dual GPU's in the 2nd loop, I would pick up a GTS240 or a GTS360 if you have the money. I'm actually selling my GTS240 (Brand New never opened) as I bought 3 Rads a week ago and haven't been able to decide which to use. Still new in box.

Either way though, 2 loops is probably the best way to go since the PA120.3 is already on it's way.

Well I finally got everything in and put together. It isnt as neat as I wanted to make it, and I couldn't use one of the EK blocks cause the card isnt reference design. Overall I'm pleased for my first attempt, and there's just enuff wrong with it for me to keep working on it. A good reason to try out that red Feser tubing too! Here's a few pics I snapped....

Not bad at all I guess. On air I'd idle at about 40 and load around 55. Now I idle at 33 and load at 38 while running more voltage to boot

HaHa...Thats what I like to hear, sounds like you have it all bleed out and the block mounted right..Good job...Thats what its all about is the v-core...It should drop another C or two as your TIM burns on in and the loop settles on out...
