Cooling Question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am currently water cooling an x5660 (not oc'ed) and the X58 North Bridge. The system is mostly Innovatek (Eheim Pump, External Reservoir, Header Tank, Fanomatic Controler) with Swiftech water blocks on the cpu and North Bridge. Radiator is a Black Ice 360 X-Flow. System first used on a P4 3.8 cpu for OCing being upgraded along the way.
Would I be OK adding a single GTX-580 into the loop? I would like to OC it a bit. Water Temp is 26.2 c

Thanks,
Jim

i think the majority of 580s on air will be at 80C full load, its a triple 120 rad so it should have no problems cooling it down. so ATM u have CPU and north-bridge in the loop and thats it.

how long was the system running to give you that 26.2 result, is that just idle?
