choosng a radiator, help?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
i am starting to think about building a water cooling system.

The first i am watching is the radiator.

I have an AMD 1055t OC to 4.0ghz on air, and 2 graphic cards.
And also i want an as silent water cooling as i can.

OK so how big do i need the radiator ?
the bigger the better ?
what about this one?
How do i know if the radiator is better for high speed or low speed fans?
any advice or recommendation?

Thanks

I have just recently switched to water cooling. First off can your case fit the radiator? I have bought this water cooling system from frozen cpu. It comes in a kit so everything u need it there.

This is a kit with a 120mm radiator: http://www.xoxide.com/dc-750-kits.html
360 radiator which supports 3 fans: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12...em.html?tl=g30

Then the kit that i have which supports 2 120mm fans: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11..._Hot_Item.html


If u r going to cool your graphic cards along with the CPU then go with the XSPC Rasa 750 RS360


Keep in mind that the kits come with mounts so you can put the radiator outside our your case.

If you were water cool your GPU then you would need to find the specfic GPU block for your GPU(of course). But those kits come with everything you need for water cooling your CPU. Of course you can water other things like the north bridge south bridge ram, etc. but i suggest that if you going with water cooling with one of those kits then start of the RS360. mount the RAD outside of your case then purchase the GPU water blocks. You can probably find your GPU water block on frozencpu.com or just google it.

The best waterblocks on the market right now are the EK blocks. But, you really won't be needing to water cool your 5850 because they don't get as hot as Fermi does.

Edit: You really don't need to put your cards under water cause they already have aftermarket cooling on them.

If you want silent water cooling, you want a radiator with a low FPI (fins per inch) count, such as an XSPC RX360. This will enable you to use lower speed fans (Gentle Typhoon AP-14/15's, for example) to achieve good results whilst keeping the PC quiet.

As for CPU block, EK Supreme HF. Don't get Full Copper.
