I'm gonna start putting my loop together once and for all (hopefully) within the next few days. Just wondering what you think I should do about airflow.



There are two intake fans at the front which pass through an RS240. At the bottom, there is a small PSU exhaust fan. At the back, there is one fan that pushes through an RX120 (I've drawn the diagram wrong there, the fan is supposed to be to the right of the purple radiator, it's push, not pull)
That leaves the question of the fan up top (orange in the picture). Should I have it as an exhaust, which could potentially starve the RX120 of air, or have it as an intake to blow fresh air over the RX120 and the fan next to it?

If you have the space, you could just get any fan and point it at your case, if you have the side panel off. I didn't notice a big difference with my panel on or off, but I did have a fan pointed at it when it was off.

How are you checking the temperature on the VRMs?

What is your CPU/GPU temp? I'm at 22.5C ambient, and my GPU is at 31C.
Hopefully the rainyseason comes because man it's so dang hot here. I've no thermal sensors for my vrm heatsink fins but they were quite hot to the touch. Painfully so. With the ambient temps of 30c my 4.6ghz idles at 38-34-35-38 ish so it's probably alright, even my load temps are manageable. My vc is oc'ed to 900/1800/2100 and it idles at 40c. Load temps while NBA 2k11 reaches 55ish..

Gotta figure out how to re-direct the airflow to help with the temps of the fins. I'm even contemplating of putting a swiftech MW80 for my videocard.

I just realized my side window mod will likely prevent me from routing tubing from the bottom, so a bottom mounted rx120 is out of the question it seems.

The more expensive alternative is upgrading my rs360 to an rx360.. I'm just curious if it'll make a large difference with two GPU's and CPU on the loop.. I know for sure it'll work better if I get a fan controller and lower the rpms on my AP-15's, but will I get significantly increased thermal performance with it working in tandem with an rx120 at full speed?

Could you do this:


Or put a 360 Rad up top?

You could mount the 360 up top, and the 120 at the rear fan intake over the CPU.

The RX will give you better temps, but how much I am not sure. I would use what you have first. If you do not have the 120 yet, I would suggest going with an RX240 or could you, and would you want to, add an RX360 to use with your RS360?

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but your GT(AP-15s) are going to shine on the thicker RX rad.

If you add any RAD (120, 240, 360, etc.) to the RAD you already have it will give you better temps, if you have CPU and two GPUs.

With an RS240, those temps look fine to me. But do make sure you have decent airflow in that case. Maybe upgrade intake/exhaust fans? Just one idea.

Thanks for the idea, but I can't. The fan up top is a 200mm with no way to mount a rad to it, and there's not enough space for a 360 rad.

Your copper block should be fine. It's only the EK Nickel Plated GPU blocks that have problems. However, it's always a good idea to periodically check your parts carefully for any abnormalities. Many users think having clear/clean looking water in their reservoir or when they drain the loop means everything's OK, but that is not a valid indicator. While it takes a little more time to dissemble the blocks, it's the only way to find out their actual condition.

I'm also glad I bought the XSPC RASA block rather than any of the EK blocks...

Side note: RR has also determined that EK Heatkiller 3.0 CPU blocks have defects as well. Link here.

I'm very happy Jab-tech has RX360's back in stock. I never got my email notification, though.

Time to figure out how to mount it in a phantom. Are we all agreed that an RS360 is not sufficient for an i7 and 2 GTX580's? It would be much easier to mount.

I'm thinking of going with XSPC Razor water blocks. Are they good for that price? So shiny.

lol so cheap!
