My Extended Ascension build concept

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi, im going to build the following build in Dec/Jan.

Im not entirely sure on some parts of it, so i went in here hopeing for some feedback.


Hardware:


Intel i7 950
Corsair 12G (3 x 4G) DDR3-1600
Corsair 1200AX
Corsair Force 120GB
Western Digital Caviar 1TB 6Gb/s
ASUS RE3
GTX 470 2x (Brand doesnt mather that much)
Plextor PX-B94SA
Lamptron FC2
Lamptron FC6
Mountain Mods Extended Ascension(Trinity Front, anodized black)


Cooling: (mostly EK so be prepared)

EK Supreme HF
EK Full VGA Blocks
EK Full Motherboard Block
EK Spin Res Black
4x ! EK-Coolstream 360 (kind of overkill but im running pull config only)
13x Noisblocker BlackSilent PRO PL1
2x EK DCP 2,2 ( or 4,0)
13mm/11mm Tubing (Masterkleer or Feser)
EK G1/4 Fittings Black
Double distilled Water
Mayhems Biocide


Loop:
Res->Pump1->CPU -> Back 360Rad->Pump2->MB->2xGPU parallel->3 Front 360Rads->

I hope i didnt forget anything.

I should add, that i want to achieve high Overclocks on CPU and GPUs.

Good, Bad or meeeh?

And should 2 EK DCP 2,2m(or maybe 3x 2,2?) be enaugh for a BIG Single Loop
or do i need the 4,0m ones?

Get the MCP355 w/XSPC top for you pump (you only need one)
You really don't need 4x 360 radiators. 2 would be more than enough.
Also, I'd get thermochill 120.3 radiator instead, as it outperforms the EK Coolstream.



Other than that you're golden. The supreme HF is the BEST CPU water block on the market right now, and EK makes great GPU water blocks.

thx charlie for your input.

I forgot to add that im from Austria and therefore the MCP Pumps are
alot harder to get around here.

And i actually know this graph, but the EK-Products(at least in austria)
outperform the competition price wise alot here( i can get an
EK-Coolstream 360 for below 40 Euros)

So i kind of CAN overkill on the Rad amount.(i might go down to 3 rads)

I would say 3 360 rads is still way overkill. Unless you're somehow running dual CPUs and Quadfire, You really wont need all that cooling. If you absolutely have to have then, just do 2 360s and save the money. Just because you can doesn't mean you have to.

I would also agree on the EK Supreme HF, very high performance block

I have a MM Extended Ascension with 4 triple 120 rads inside (3 dedicated loops with 3 pumps and 3 res), just like you're planning to do.

I know it's overkill, but I like to have a silent computer. Even with high OC on the 2 graphic cards and the CPU, all my fans (with 38mm shrouds) are turning at 700-800 rpm max, and everything is quiet and cool.

There is no such thing as overkill, just creative thought
