Water cooling.. options, advise please. - Page 2

post #11 of 23
ok how about this comparison
I am running a 955 at 4ghz, with my max load being about 44c.
I have the RS360 kit.

I would feel comfortable with that if I where only cooling my CPU alone. Its not bad. I feel better about this build though:

1st Rad - http://www.frozencpu.com/products/53...?tl=g30c95s161

2nd rad - http://www.frozencpu.com/products/53...?tl=g30c95s160

CPU block - http://www.frozencpu.com/products/10...tl=g30c323s828

Pump - http://www.frozencpu.com/products/21...tl=g30c107s153

Fans - http://www.frozencpu.com/products/64...l?tl=g36c15s60

and the MOSFET and north bridge blocks I posted in my first post.

Or due to my lack of my knowledge would what I have picked be to excessive or allow me to only end up with the same results if I where to go with XSPC Rasa 750 RS360?

Those fans are not good fans for a rad. You want gentle typhoons.
Why do you want so many rads?
what are you planning on cooling.

EDIT: just read the OP closer. You aren't even cooling a GPU. You do know the Mosfets and chipsets don't really put off that much heat. so having those two rads is a complete an under overkill of a system.
The RS360 will more then cool those on a huge overclock. My system is even inside a case so my temps are up a 1 or 2 degrees.
Just go get an RS360 kit and then buy the blocks for your motherboard.

Thanks for the fan tip.

I would like the triple for my CPU, and the dual for the motherboard's MOSFET and north bridge. The last time I over clocked on this MB they got really hot and held me back from further over clocking my CPU. I felt unsafe to push them even further. I only went from 2.6 to 3.0 on an older CPU, so I would like to have more then adequate cooling this time around. The north bridge alone was hot to touch, similar to a ATI 4850 when they first came out lol. And when it hit spring and summer time where I live it gets really hot and humid, so I don't want to have to worry about heat around then as well. Should I just stick to the GTX 360 with all this in mind?

I am telling you, chipsets and mosfets don't push that much heat, try putting a tiny fan on the heatsink for your chipset and mosfets, it doesn't take much to cool them down.
save yourself time and money and get the RS360 kit. The reason i said the slipstreams aren't good is the static pressure. With a rad you want static pressure over cfm.

I have my Chip overclocked to 4ghz and my chipset really doesn't putout that much heat, they are both passively cooled.

If you look you can see my chipset cooler and my mosfet cooler connected with a heatpipe, and a small fan sitting on the chipset cooler. That keeps both at around room temp with that setup.

EDIT:Yes i know there is an H50 in that picture. but I have the RS360 now with my cpu at 4ghz, and no fan on the chipset, it is pure passively cooler, just by the updraft from the rad in the top of my case.

I used to have that motherboard.

Alright, I'll give that kit a try then. If I happen to still want to use Chipset water blocks would that pump included be able to handle them with everything else in the loop?

Hmm I need to find better info about fans and rads now

Thanks for the information.

yes, just make sure you get blocks that have a good flow rate on them, so don't get the 1/4in ones.

Hmm These are the ONLY ones that I could find that fit my MB's goofy design:

Mosfet- http://www.koolance.com/water-coolin...product_id=660

and

NB- http://www.koolance.com/water-coolin...product_id=662

Do you know anything else that might fit my M4N72-E by chance?

Those blocks are fine, When I said 1/4inch i meant the blocks that have 1/4inch tubing fittings on them.
You don't want to put a quarter inch tube in your half in loop.

I think I understand how bad that can constrict flow(scratches chin). Well, thanks both of you for your help. I have enough confidence to buy what I need now ^_^
