You don't understand how much heat the GTX480's produce especially when overclocked. I have 3 intake fans, 2x200mm, 1xAP15 and 1 outake 140mm. I also tried different combinations with exhaust and intake with these fans and other fans and nothing changed. Everything is perfect with exhaust, why would I need to enforce intake?

I agree, with 480s it's a difficult job and quite probably you have arrived at a reasonable compromise. But your situation is surely not the norm and I would stand by my assertion that intaking fresh air over a radiator is - in general - preferable.

I agree that direct fresh air over the radiator is always better, and thats why people with external radiators generally get better temps. People with internal radiators and with multiple blocks, generally go with exhaust to avoid rad heat being blown into the case altogether which can be counterproductive like in my case. I have seen some people build an air duct on their radiator inside their case so they can go with intake.

Rat, Busy, I'm going to be running my RX360 internally in the front of my Antec 1200! So I'll have fresh air coming in from the front then fans on the opposite side of the rad pulling it through into the case. Heat build up is a concern I'm having, especially on my crossfire 6950s. Do either of you think the 2 120mm fans and 200mm fan in the roof will be adequate exhaust to keep temps in the case reasonable?

I could always add the side fan maybe as intake to add cooler air into the mix

Is a Laing DDC 1T+ Pump with XSPC Top a better pump than the X20?

Just got my XSPC Rasa RS240 and installed it in my Corsair 650D on my eVGA 470 GTX.

I'm pretty impressed with the quality of the kit. Especially the Res/Pump.
I'd post pics but it's nothing special.

One word of caution with the 650D though...With the RS240 rad up top, it's an extremely tight fit with my H80 CPU cooler, both rads are physically touching. Not good. Obviously no chance a RX240 would fit.

If I could do it all over again. Definately Corsair 800D. 650D fails at good watercooling. Unless you're willing to do your own mods to it.

Results:

Stock eVGA 470 GTX Cooler: around 38 idle and load in 80's or 90's with the fan on a resonable level.

XSPC Rasa RS240 with EK470Acetal block: 41 idle and 51 max load. (1100mv overvolted - 825mhz core)

I have a rx360 up top in my case and a rx240 in push pull down the bottom and they are both intake and I have only one high cfm exhaust in the the rear and I have no issues with overheating anywhere in my case.

I would say experiment with both, stress test to get the worst scenario, monitor all temps, even check inside the case then pick the one the yields the best overall temps.

I'm getting the RS360 kit, and I have a quick question regarding upgradability on it. I'm currently running (and going to be cooling) a Phenom II x3 720 @ 4 cores with the water kit. Will this kit (well...the pump) be able to handle a block for a 6950? I'm looking to add on to the loop in the near future and I'm wondering if I'm going to need another pump or res.

Thanks!
