WC loop for Q6600/NB/GPU

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
You guys much be so tired of dealing with this, so I though might as well do it as well!

Looking to cool:


-Q6600 @ 3.6ghz, 1.5vCore

-780i Northbridge block:

meaning block has to be compatible

-GPU block? :

I have an 8800GT now, but I might put it in another rig in favour of something new from ATI or nVidia. Either one or two of the 4850's,70's or GTX260, or one 3870x2 or 4870x2.

-Rad:

Must look discreet first, cooling power second. I can use 80+CFM fans, so something that takes advantage of that is good. To be discreet it should be mountable inside or on the Cosmos 1000, not on the desk like for a GTX480. There are two top fan grills and one back for a rad (among others), but I might consider putting a 360 in the middle of the case. Anyone know if it would higher temps?

-Res:

....um...must be able to contain water



So far what I have in mind is a FuZion V2 and swiftech res, but for the rad im stuck between a 240 and 360, and don't know which company or where I would put it. Anyone have a WC'ed cosmos out there?

Looks like I'm going for a Magicool Elegance radiator. Has a res included, so that brings me down to blocks and a pump!

I'll try to find a review of the Magicools, be patient.

Ok well here is Chiel introducing them

Are you talking about these things with poly tanks on it? .Magicool Elegant 240mm ...I don't think I would trust a rad very much with poly carb tanks on it...Might be fine, might not...I wouldn't really trust many reviews either, 90% of them will say anything to get more free stuff...See if you can find a individual who has actually used one and see what they think of it...

I can't find any review, the company makes air conditioners so everyone is talking about that instead...As for finding someone who owns it, they are pretty new but I will try. There's only one site I found (well Chiel did, he/she is the only person who knows it exists) but it's in german, and it puts the Magicool behind the GTS with good fans, but ahead with slower fans.

The GTS or the GTX, the GTX is a double row rad and the GTS is a single...The GTS is a pretty good rad its just real restrictive,it would be OK in a CPU only loop with a good pump, it will beat out a BIX by a couple of C with 86cfm Pana on them.GTS Review..But still I would just go with a BIX instead, they are not nearly as restrictive flow wise or air wise, the GTS has around 30 fins per inch I think, that has to pack up with dust pretty fast..I have a 240 GTS that I bought to play with, still haven't tried it on anything yet...The GTX is a pretty free flowing rad, not very restrictive at all...

Yeah I've not seen anyone here using the Magicool either....They have been out a long time to, especially the metal ones....You have to be about the 30th guy to link to those 9-120mm rads here.....The ones with poly end tanks I wouldn't want to use at all..Poly cracks, soldered all metal end tanks don't, I have quite a few dents and dings in most of my rads tanks from dropping them and what not....

The GTX

K, I'm scared about the tanks, but it must still have been well done what with the performance/quality of the rest. As far as I know, all reservoires have a chance of cracking, no?

a review here, only one I could find

I guess, most res aren't attached to a rad though, thats something different there...I'm not trying to scare you away from it, its just nothing I would buy myself...I just don't like plastic parts at all, although I do use a DD bay res from time to time...I kind of half-way trust Delrin, but thats about it..

Try it and see, I'd just mount it externally for safety sake, I do that anyway, I like my rad out in the cooler room ambient air...

Here is another rad test where they use the little 47cfm YL fans to, I don't think the magicool is in it, there are some other European type rads...360 GTX Beats PA.3 w/47cfm Fans
