580 gpu watercooling - Page 3

Awesome, I'll be ordering in the next day or so

Last couple of questions, kinda follow up really. Is the mounting of the Rasa kit going to be compatible with Sandy Bridge, if I decide to upgrade that way in the next couple of years?

And lastly, I'm sure I'll be having many questions once I get my stuff and start the build. Should I keep posting them here or start a new thread? Things like trouble mounting, flushing the new equipment, and just general noob stuff?

Ooh, and I decided to order the stuff but hold off on GT fans for a week or so to see if some 15s become available. In the meantime, should I stick with the fans that come with the kit? I also have three CM R4s, and a couple of TY-140s that have 120mm mounting holes. What do you guys think?

I have this case, honestly I am thinking about switching to a Corsair Obsidian when my CPU block arrives, but anyway...

2x120mm Rad on the top, 1x200mm+ in the front and side. And 1x120mm rad on the bottom and in the rear are possible within the case. And you could probably throw some rads on the outside if you were trying to keep them out of your case.


Edit: Anywho I have 2x580s on a 2x120mm rad and the temps never go above 50c with 1.1v on both cards.

Are they two individual 120 rads on top? Or a 240 rad? If a 240 rad, how'd you mount it?

Sandy Bridge socket uses the same mounting holes as 1156, making it guaranteed to be compatible with the XSPC Rasa.

The side panel and the top of the case are identical. You can use a 200mRad or 2x120mm rad on either, its really up to you, it has OEM screw howls for both setups. The system does come with 2x200mm fans so you could use those if you wanted to be cheap.

Personally I removed the 200mm fan from the top and move it to the side panel to blow on my GPUs and put a 2x120mm rad with push/pull fans on the top. I actually place the rad outside the case because I thouhgt it would get more fresh air that way.

What TIM do you guys recommend? I have an Antec one (Formula 5? I think, I'm not home). Stick with that? Or something that doesn't require curing?

MX-2. Cheap, effective and no cure time. I bought a 30g tube about a year ago for $10 and it's been great.

Alrighty, so back from a long as project and I'm finally gonna pull the trigger on this thing.

This is the final set up I've come up with, tell me what you guys think.
I managed to get 3 GT-15s, so thats good to go. Also some MX-2.

Things left to order:
XSPC Rasa RS240 kit
XSPC Razor GTX580 block
Silver Coil
4 Dangerden High Flow G 1/4 Fittings - 1/2"
Fan controller Sunbeam 5-1/4" Rheobus Kit
10 ft PrimoFlex Pro LRT UV Blue Tubing - 7/16in. ID X 5/8in. OD

So the reason I got 3 fans and am getting 4 fittings is because I'm considering adding a RX120 or RS120 and attaching it in place of the rear 120mm exhaust fan. My concern was whether it would interfere with the top mounted RS240+fans. The way around this, I think, would be to mount the rad on the inside of the case and have the GT 15 mounted externally, pulling through the rad (the fans on the other rad will be push). So all rads will be exhaust, and for intake I'll have 2x200mm fans (side and front). How well would this work? Would I have to cut out the case grill that would be between the fan and the 120 rad? Or should I wait till the RS240 is installed and see if I have space for a RX/RS120 with fan, all internal?

You might have to mount the radiator outside the case as well. I'd do a test fit with the RS240 before you install your loop to see where the second radiator can be placed. Make sure to have all radiators as intake or exhaust (like you said) so that air isn't getting re-used.
