What pump and Rad would be needed for AM3 CPU + 2x6950 and maybe the MB for fun

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
In the spring, I'm definitely going to WC the CPU, now I have a pII x3 740, that might unlock, and later I should get a x6 1090, the C.M. TX3 is just temporary.

I'm going to get a HD 6950, with plans to CF it, so I'd shell out the $125 total for a full block I just checked on ekwaterblocks.

So I'll be OCing all of it

What kind of pump and radiator could handle a OCed pII x6 1090 and 2x6950 OCed with full water blocks

And same question with headroom so that I could WC the MB, I guess the NB and MOSFETs, (not that I expect to need it, but you never how, and it should make it last longer).

And I'm poor, so I would buy mid range products.

If you're poor, skip the motherboard cooling. Your motherboard will run perfectly fine without the block and that money is better spent on more radiators.

For your situation I would buy the XSPC Rasa RX360 kit. For $190 you get a full CPU loop including pump, block and radiator. The radiator is also big enough that when you add your GPUs in as well you will just have to plumb them into the loop.

yeah a couple of fans will fit nicely over the stock heatsinks on the my MB


Is there much price difference between a nice kit like that, and buying the main parts separate?

A lot. The price difference is going to be around $150.
