OCN Water Cooling Club And Picture Gallery - Page 2194

post #21931 of 70968
Preference really. I love my D5. Mine is completely silent at full speed, and they run cooler than your 3.2s typically.

Majin SSJ Eric - a couple things.

1. I'd probably grab the Cosmos II from Newegg. It's 305 + $15 shipping from newgg or 330 with free shipping from amazon. PPCS WILL charge you for shipping on top of that 340.

2. I'd avoid nickel plated EK products. Even with their "new" style of doing the coating, issues are still being reported. Even the blocks that were pre-bad coating issue had some issues as well (as evidenced by my 5850 block pre finish problem that lost it's finish in my loop)

And for questions:

Are that many connectors necessary for SLI/Crossfire setups? There's $110 worth of connectors just for linking your video cards together alone. That's crazy if so :/

Why not run 1 RX360 and 1 RX240 instead of the EX and the Koolances? Lower Fin density, lower speed fans, great cooling potential. Should be able to run the 2 radiators instead of 3, lower your restriction, get same overall temperatures I'd say.

I mean shoot... I'm running a single RX360 with 3 high speed yate loons, i7-3770k @ 4.7GHz, and a single 7970 with FC block @ 1300/1700. The GPU never gets above 45C. I'd think adding a 240 rad should cover the additional heat of a second GPU as well as X79 setup no problem.

the 3.25 really gave the DDC 3.2 and 3.1 a bad name as far a heat. I've never had heat issues unless the pump was in a confined area. The D5 I had was in a bay res and it did get hot (just like my old ddc in a bay res) but that's expected so I didn't say my old D5 was hot. With space and some decent air flow, either pump can run cool. I just feel the MCP 35x tarnished the rep of its predecessors due to its massive heat generating capability. Swiftech's heatsinks for the mcp35x is a band-aid to a not so great pump (worded carefully here wink.gif ) imho.

The MCP35x can be controlled via software with ease. I won't be buying any other pump for now on.

I'm still using one of the MCP350's that I got from bmaverick sometime mid-late last year, with I think an XSPC top with G1/4 threads.
It's been running 24/7 bitcoin mining ever since, keeping both GPUs and CPU at a steady 45-50C depending on ambient.. and I still haven't gotten around to making a plug for it rolleyes.gif

Bare wires from the pump were just jammed into the back of the GPU power cable >.> safety ftw
Combined with NZXT 120mm white fans, I can't hear a damn thing from it unless I stick my face next to the case.


Just ordered a Sapphire HD7970 with a Koolance block from a fellow OCN member to add to the collection too.

i've been through about eight builds within the last two-three years. So I'm pretty sure I know what I'm doing wink.gif To each their own thumb.gif

It seems we have people with different definitions of "noisy".

The acetal pump tops give lower noise because of the added mass, the stock D5 pump tops increase vibrations making them louder. Then there is decoupling the pump so there are many variables here, like using Gel Stuff makes a HUGE difference in noise! So the combination of the acetal tops and the decoupling makes all the difference.

i want to do something similar to this. What pipes/ fittings are you using? I'm going to get my mums bf involved when i do mine. Get advice off a proper plumber XD hehe

Also i got bored of waiting for phobya to send me those freeking flexilights! Bought some akasa cold cathodes in the mean time so i can at least see my tubing nice and lit up. Unfortunately the bloody power cables are white. Grrrrr.
