Does these parts look OK for i7 920 OC?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey

I am getting water for my i7 920 D0. My goal is to reach about 4.5Ghz 24/7. I have managed to get 4.3Ghz on air, but while running Prime 95 the temps would reach 92C, so watercooling is needed.

I attached an image showing the parts I've chosen so far. So far it's at $400. I am willing to pay more if the parts I've chosen isn't good enough, thanks!

Well, all looks good except the pump I think is a bit weak. I would use a 650 not a 350 for this setup to mantain decents cooling 24/7 for that kind of OC.
post #3 of 12
you would rather use a 650 because of the added max discharge(liters per hour), and max pressure?

Was just checking the 655 up against the 350 and 355.
655:
- max head 10ft
- max discharge 1200 Liters per hour
- max pressure 50 psi
350:
- max head 13 ft
- max discharge 350 liters per hour
- max pressure 22 psi
355:
- max head 20 ft
- max discharge 454 liters per hour
- max pressure 22 psi

So.. overall, the 655 wins based on its max discharge with 1200 liters per hour?

The more coolant you can pass through a watercooling setup per hour, the more efficient the cooling capacity. 1200 lph will allow for a much better cooling capacity due to the coolant being cycled more quickly through your setup. This allows heat transference from the waterblocks at a higher rate which effectively cools much better.

I think it will work famosly ......

Obviously I agree that a stronger pump would not hurt. ultimantly max turbulance in the block is what the deal breaker here not nessisarily LPH ....

Agreed here with Witchdoctor. You will have some pressure resistance in the waterblock, but that happens with every WC setup.

I would spend a little extra on a EK Supreme HF cpu block instead, as it has the least flow resistance and better cooling for socket 1366. I run a mcp350 in a single loop with two rads, 2 gpu f/c blocks, and a EK supreme. Water flow is decent but the not the best.

I would also drop the feser one liquid and just go with distilled water + kill coil. Remember over time gunk will build up inside your cpu block and cause temps to rise and water to be restricted. Also skinnelabs have done research on popular brands of liquid and the feser one ran the hottest by 1-2c over regular tap water.

If you rather have non conductive liquid then go ahead and grab some pc chill clear. The dyes really break down over time, try to aviod them espically since your reaching a high overclock.

Also look into grabing 6 stand offs for your fans so you can get more airflow into your rad, more airflow = lower temps = higher overclock.

you might be right on the cpu block. The liquid though.. i can't say i agree with you 100%. Yes it is easy with distilled + kill coil + pt nuke(if i might add). But skinnelabs clearly state in his conclusion: "In terms of thermal performance, there is a such a small difference between any of the fluids that coolant choice will not make any difference in thermal performance for your setup." So if Kidio wants, he may put Feser one blue in his loop, it will still cool his setup pretty darn well. buildup? yes problably, looking nice with blue liquid? yes, atleast for kidio.

Standoffs/ducts, i can agree with you there. As long as you are smart, and get a cheap set of fans, and simply remove those fans. Walla! you have 25mm ducts which work great on rads. And ofcourse theese lower your temps.

If you have a kill coil you don't really need PT nuke. It'll just cloud your loop. If he uses any coolant with color just be prepared to have a mess to clean every so often.

Since he is going from 2.66 to 4.5 oc it would be best to not use a dye type of liquid. Yes it looks great but it surely is a pita to clean every 6 months. The heat from the processor alone will decrease the time it takes to break down the dye and cause build up much quicker.

Looking at his cart the only time you will see the blue liquid is in the res as the primochill tubing he choose is a solid color. With the added 3mm led blue light he can hook that up into the res and have it shine through, it would give it that look of a dyed liquid even if its regular distilled water.
