post #9501 of 15204
450

just modded in the side window...still need to get some u channel when im not feeling lazy
post #9502 of 15204
ok, so i know we have alot of water cooling enthusiasts out there and i have a question... as you can see in my build i have a rasa kit, with a 240 on top before cpu and a 120 after cpu before gpus...im thinking of adding another 240 radiator to the bottom of the case where the HDD bays are after the GPUs before it goes back into the reservoir...
my question is, do you guys think that will help me with cooling and about by how much?

i will probably do this anyways, because its only a total od $125 with the fans and fitting i will need to buy as well. just trying to get some input from everyone else here...

fyi i will be going with a XSPC ex240 rad....another reason why i am going to do this is my idle temps actually just rose to around 40c after i put in my side window, guessing because of lack of cooler air being pulled from that mesh side it had. the temps were about 37-38c

Fill out your system specs so we can see what your running thumb.gif

But for a cpu + 2 gpus more rad space is definitely going to help biggrin.gif

running a 2500k @ 4.6ghz @ 1.36-1.38v for normal use with about 40c idle/60c load...for kamakazie benches iv hit 5.3@ about 1.56-1.58v with about 45c idle/70c load.

also got 2 msi gtx460 hawks at 850/2200 normal use and benching at 920/2200

the water cooling set up is the XSCP rasa 750 240 set up with the additional 120 ex120rad on back and the gpu blocks are to xspc full cover blocks for the 460's...they cover the gpu and mem but not the vrms cause on the Hawk cards the vrms are massive!

Yeah especially with those clocks and the sli setup another 240 or 360 would be a perfect addition thumb.gif

just trying to get a "rough" idea thinking maybe it would prob drop temps about 5c or 10c?
post #9507 of 15204
That would depend a lot on ambient temp, fans, etc. But i would expect it would be a pretty good drop, definitely more then a few degrees C

thats what im hoping...although i know im doing great already in regards to temp, i mean, 55-60c max load temp for cpu and 45-50c max temp for gpus is very very good....but i know it can be that little bit better, and i want to use all that wasted HD bay space anyways since i only have 1 ssd and 1 HDD

When I bought my case I was missing some standoffs. Customer service screwed up and didn't send them out. I had to make a second call so NZXT sent me 2 200mm fans for free.thumb.gif
