Hey guys, do you think 540mm worth of rad space is enough to cool down 2x GTX680 and i7 3930k @ 4.6GHz? While gaming the CPU never breaks above 70ºC and the GPU's never break above ~48ºC with a heavy overclock, this is with both cards at 99% usage. If I just run Prime 95 on the CPU and idle the cards it never reaches above 65ºC. In Folding@Home however, since everything is at 100% usage, it does get a bit toasty, cards go as high as 56ºC on hot nights and CPU goes as high as 78ºC.

I did try adding an extra 120mm rad I had laying around, but it didn't really do anything, so I guess this 540mm rad is still more than enough for my loop?

PS: If it helps, my 3930k is a poor clocker, needs 1.4v for 4.6GHz, but I can't complain since I got it VERY cheap from a friend. tongue.gif

I think it's plenty. My first loop I had a 3930k at 4.5 1.32v and 2 680's overclocked all cooled with a RX360 rad. My CPU temps never rose above 70c and my gpu's were about 45c at full load, sometimes even lower depending on the game.

I now added a 480 monsta rad and a mobo block and my temps didn't really improve that much.

I think 540mm is plenty.

In my opinion the ram cooler is a bit naff. It's like putting an LED gear stick on your Ferrari.

Oh dear I was afraid of that. I'll have to sell it mad.gif or build a new computer smile.gif

If you want your ram cooled and it to look classy, get it under water!

What case is this?

I do have some questions, I have my drain line coming off my reservoir to a drain plug on the bottom of the case. I filled the loop with Primochill sysprep and ran it for a 24 hour/leak test, drained it and refilled it with Distilled and Liquid Utopia but the drain line is empty, like there is an air bubble stuck in it. Is this normal? Did I do something wrong? Should I try to get rid of it or leave it alone?

Reinstalled my TIM today. Did I do it right?

 

 

 

 

PS this is my loop.

Oh my TIM is this and this was just the "burn in" to melt the TIM

 

PSSS

These are my real temps so far with ITB only. If I run Furmark on my 5870 1050 mhz @ 1.35v  my temps don't budge.

Just because I could thumb.gif Hope you enjoyed it.

Well, gaming is not the same as Folding@Home. With games I don't see my CPU reach above 65ºC and the GPU's at like 46-48ºC with a very heavy overclock including modded BIOS for more voltage, Folding? That's another story.

I'll try adding that XT360 rad I'm getting see if it helps, if it doesn't do much I'll just do 2 different loops, the CPU runs a lot cooler when the GPU's are idling, so the ideal solution (But not aesthetically ideal for my case) would be 2 loops. rolleyes.gif

Great loop, love how well the lighting accents it.
i have no idea on your problem though, but it does sound like an air bubble or something. have you tried tilting the case? (or maybe its an air lock if the res fill port is closed)
another fellow C70 owner who got his case to the deep water biggrin.gif
was it difficult to get that rad in the front? (or any problems with leaking because of the barb end being on the bottom? or anything else?)
and what is that on the bottom ODD slot? (and where are your HDDs / SSDs?)



any idea of what would be recommended for the C70 for a bottom rad options? either a 240 (which as i can see could be as thick as a monsta) rad as Knight26's or add a 120 rad to that on the bottom. or a bottom (horizontal) 240 rad and a front rad on the top front fan (which also could be thick) or anything else?

The cool stream 240 xt fits great in the front. Its 276 mm long and there's about 279 mm clearance. The top fan mount holes line up so it mounts securely. The black ice sr-1 was my other option for the front rad. It's 277 mm long. It should fit as well but i went with EK all the way through (except for a coupe alphacool 90 fittings and a koolance drain valve fitting) since i could get almost everything I needed in a kit from them. I didn't have any leaks. The rad doesn't touch the bottom of the case.

The black box is a hot swappable bay for 3.5" HDD with a WD drive in it. I have 2 SSD's in the bay above mounted on 5.25 to 2.5 adapter. I don't have a disc drive since I found that I rarely used it. I didn't go with a bottom mount 240 because it would be so tight against the PSU. Since it's modular, I would have to take the rad out if I needed to add or remove a power cable. I could've put a slim 240 or 280 in the top but i wanted to keep the light effect from the 2 140 mm blue led fans.
