580 gpu watercooling - Page 2

post #11 of 62
Thread Starter 
I guess I could bite the bullet and just purchase it, I was hoping for someone here having experience with that case for some peace of mind prior to purchase if it needs modding then I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

Any last input or advice? Does everything I need come in that kit, aside from the other things you pointed out? Will I be mixing metals? Do I need a fan controller or push/pull fans, or any other fittings or stuff? I don't know much about this stuff..

I think I'll be satisfied with those temps, as long as the noise is significantly lower than what I have now. Would that be right?

EDIT nah I can't justify a new case as well, this'd be my Christmas cash lol. I'm hoping the 240 will be enough for the temps you guessed at with low noise. Right now at gaming load I hit about 70C for cpu and around 76C for gpu, but its just the gpu fan noise that is starting to bug.

I had a 360 rad to cool I7 and 2 480s , did it fine, i got a 480 rad now. I got a 240 rad never used and 260 rad. +i got 2 spare gpu blocks.

I think the 580 is like the 480. Where all you need to cool it is a mcw80 (best water block) cost 65 $
Rad Used $45 or new ~$80 i got 2 im going to sell soon.
Pump. All depends . I like mcp 655 Strong pump. cost $67 i seen online yesterday
I would get 1850 Gt fans. they cost more then most but lil noise. I got alot of fans that made to much noise.
But ya, on 480 all i needed was to remove air cooler was 4 bolts on bottom and mount the mcw80 on it. i got mx-3 for paste with u do need paste for the block.
I like 1/2 inch barbs. With tubeing of 7/16 Its a realy good fit.
right now pc is @ 70degs c on cpu and 49 degs on gpu.
Cpu @ 4ghz and gpu @ 850 overclock. Both full load last 12 hours folding. So i know a 240 rad on gpu alone ez. I got my 360 rad i can put on sell. it can do cpu and gpu.

Yeah 1850 RPM gentle typhoons are about as loud as your average 1400 RPM fan, so even at full bore they're not very loud.

Here is a full list, with links:

XSPC RS240 Kit
Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15s
XSPC Razor GTX 580 Block
Silver Kill Coil
1/2" Fittings x2

And you can replace the tubing that comes with the kit with some colored tubing for $16 (buy 10 feet)

Any color found here (get the 7/16" ID 5/8" OD Size):

I don't have a windowed case so any eye candy is just wasted unfortunately. Do I need to get any extra tubing since I'm adding a gpu block? And would that same pump do fine if I later decided to add a second RAD at some point?
Do I need a fan controller? Or should I wait to see if the fan noise needs fine tuning?

I'd get 10 feet of that primoflex tubing anyways because it's slightly nicer tubing anyways and while you might be able to get by with the 6 feet you get with the Rasa kit it always sucks to run out.

You can add a second 580 and more radiators to that pump easily, it's actually pretty powerful. Besides, GPU blocks and radiators don't add much restriction compared to CPU block anyways.

As far as noise goes, the 1850 RPM model fans are not very loud, but they also aren't silent. A nice fan controller can be had for $14 at Jab-tech, so I'd just invest. The LEDs are slightly annoying but can be easily removed.

So I built up my cart at jab-tech, file should be attached.
How does this look? I haven't been able to definitively figure out if the rad will mount without modding, but whatever I'll figure it out.

Also, GT-15s aren't in stock. Is it worth waiting for them? I put 14s in my cart as a placeholder for pricing.

Anything else that I need to know before purchasing? I'll be holding off for a few hours in any case.

It looks all good. With the 1450 RPM gentle typhoons you will have a water-air delta around 15C, which while high is still acceptable. If you were using the 1850 RPM typhoons that delta would be lowered to around 11C, giving you a 4C drop on GPU and CPU.

Well after further considerations and some quick measurements, I've come up with a tweak to my original plan and wanted to post here for opinions.

First, I measured my mounting holes and asked in a bunch of places, and it turns out that I think the Rasa RS240 kit should be able to line up fine. The problem is, if I'm measuring right, the rad+fans might end up conflicting with the RAM clips and a mobo heatsink, meaning I might need to drill some new mount holes to shift the rad to the side (towards the side door). Cross that bridge when I get to it, as much as I am hesitant to drill things.

The second thing is, I'm thinking about adding a 120 rad to the loop in order to help with the gpu block. I'm thinking of mounting this rad where the existing rear 120mm exhaust fan is, also as an exhaust. So now I'd have 2x200mm fans as intake and 3x120mm fans through rads as exhaust.

Through some preliminary measurements and searching, I think this rad will have to be a XSPC RS120. I know the RX120 will do better, but I think that RX being thicker will interfere with the top mounted rad. Either way, a combined RS360 rad should cover my i7-930 and GTX 580, yes?

Lastly, I haven't been able to find GT 15s anywhere, and from looking around the forum I know I'm not the only one looking. Whenever they do come in stock, they'll need massive amounts or I'll be stuck waiting forever. For my setup, is it worth it to keep waiting? Or should I be content with GT 14s? What do you guys think? Other solutions?

I've decided to stick with the fan controller, by the way. Might as well.

With 1500 RPM fans and a total of 260mm of radiator you should be okay. You won't be getting amazing temperatures but still far better than air cooling. I'd guess with both components overclocked and fully loaded with LinX/Furmark around 55-60C GPU, 65C CPU.
