first water cooling setup help?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hey guys so i'll be putting my water cooling setup together today and needed to know a few things, but first this is my setup:

MCP350 w/XSPC Res top
apogee XT
Swiftech MCR320

this is cooling an asus mobo with x6 1055t.

i had initially planned to just cool the cpu but was thinking why not cool the gpu as well. I'm wondering if the Rad is big enough to cool both the cpu and gpu. my gpu is a Saphire 5850 which currently has an arctic cooling twin turbo pro and vrm-3 on it. if i were to change to liquid i was looking to buy the mcw80 gpu block only and leave the heatsinks and vrm-3 on the card.

so what do you guys think? should i go for it or hold off?

From what I know, the MCR320 is a decievingly good cooler, especially at its price range. Will it cool it? Yes, it should cool it fine. Can you get better temps with a differen rad? Definetly. Its really up to you and what you are looking for. If you want simplicity and uniform cooling through water then fine, if you are super worried about your temps then maybe hold off.

Good choice on water block though, better to passive cool the memory!

thanks for the quick reply. what better radiators are out there? As for the gpu, you think i should go with the mcw80 gpu cooler only and keep the rest of the card cooled passively, huh?

also, do you think the mcp350 pump will be able to handle the restrictive nature of both the apogee xt and the mcw80 gpu block?
