Is this a good set-up?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
2 Hw labs black ice pro 3 radiators
6 120 mm fans (84.5cfm each)
Swifttech mcp655 pump
Swiftech MCW5002-64 TEC CPU Waterblock
Danger Dan Maze 4 TEC version gpu waterblock
80W 40mmX40mm tec for gpu waterblock
maze 4 gpu insulation kit (neoprine)
1/2" tubbing
swifttech hydrx coolant
Arctic silver 5
Swiftech MCRES-MICRO Reservoir
Luberex Dielectric Lubricant
Meanwell 320w Industrial PSU Model #S320-12 for Cpu TEC (GPU ran of PSU)
Pump Relay switch kit (Pump and PSu supported)

(all of this on one loop) with a second gpu in the future with the same block/tec...will it work now and more importantly in the future or is the loop to overloaded in your opinion? This is my first watercooling set-up of any kind so yes im a noob but trying to learn. I will be commencing this build shortly after x-mas.

cpu=opteron 175
ram=OCZ TECH 1GB kit pc4800 2.5-4-4-10
Case=Thermaltake xaserv SIlver
Graphics=PNY geforce 7800GT SLI in future
Motherboard= DFI lanparty ut nf4 sli-dr expert
PSU=Silverston Zeus 650watt
HDD= WD2500KS (250GB 16MB buffer 7200RPM) X2

ummm... ya... thats frigin amazing, i wish i could get that! Send me some money

EDIT: with all that, depending upon how big your loops is a 2nd pump and a bigger reservouir would be a good idea

How is this resevoir Swiftech MCRES-1000 Reservoir has almost twice the capacity as for the second pump is it absolutely neccesary because this is getting pretty expensive. But if it Is a must have to make the system work properly I will get the second pump (same as the first). Any suggestions welcome.

Everything looks good, my only concern would be the GPU TEC, what size are you using? If you're getting the prebuilt block from DD (or if you decide to go with the Swiftech version which IMHO is better...) you'll have to swap out the default 80W TEC for something stronger like a 172W. Modern videocards produce a lot of heat and that little 80W'er will not be able to handle the heat load produced by the 7800GT well. When I was TEC'ing the videocard a few years ago, I found that my old stock MCW50-T couldn't even deal well with the heat a highly clocked 9800XT produced. Swapping it out with a 172W TEC (you can get them at DD, they're a drop in replacement with the 80W'er) gave me good temps. If you go wtih a 172W TEC however you'll need to get yourself a 24V PSU but they can be had pretty cheap on eBay.

Actually on that thought, is there a firmware for the 7800GT that disable's nVIDIA's GPU thermal protection? All GeForce 6/7 series cards have cold bugs and for the 7800's, if you go below 20C, the stupid core starts to think it's overheating and throttles. I'll check around for a BIOS that disables that feature for the 7800GT, in the mean time that is something you should consider if none is found.

I agree with Burn about the 80w TEC. Good guide to follow with TEC's: ALWAYS get a bigger TEC than you need. That way you can turn the voltage down, increase efficiency, and still have lower temps than you would with a lower-rated peltier at full power.

what about this one for the gpu running at 12 volts or more.

its always better to have a higher powered one than less, if its high powered you can always turn the voltage\\current down to accomodate your needs, with cooling cpu\\gpu you will need to make sure your radiator can cope, Ive learnt that with my single 226 watt pelt running at 13.8 volts at 20 amps @ 1.7 vcore @ nearly 3000mhz is creating way too much heat for my single radiator to the point where the system runs fine for about 15 minutes and then slowly just gets hotter and then there is no point of having the tec there in the first place. go with the biggest and best radiator you can accomodate is my advice at the moment. the higher you go with the wattage the more heat created, try and get a 226 watter if you can, some gpu's output more heat than a cpu. I am no guru in peltier cooling but Im just quoting from my experience so far, cheers
