I need recommendations for WC 2600k and SLI GTX 570

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello all - I apologize in advance if I mess up in my posting; I am not too familiar with it.

My system currently has:
i7 2600k
(2x) EVGA Superclocked GTX 570
ASUS 1155 Deluxe mb
8gb Corsair DDR3 1600
Corsair 800d Case
Corsair AX1200 1200w PSU
with the GPUs on stock cooling and the CPU by a H50.

What combination of radiators/fans could I get to efficiently cool the two video cards and the CPU. The CPU will be overclocked significantly, but the videocards will remain on their stock (factory overclocked) settings. My only requirements would be to have it all internally mounted, and I strongly prefer to not modify the bottom hard drive cage.

I am considering getting a XSPC Rasa RS360 kit, EK full waterblocks (although I don't have my mind set on the brand or exact model), and 6+ of the quietest fans deemed acceptable from your inputs. And additional Rads and fans as needed (possibly a dual loop although I prefer a single - not a huge deal)

Would I be able to mount the RS360 with a push/pull on the top of the case, along with a 120mm Rad in the rear and/or the bottom of the case? - specifically would all 3 fit? if so, with what fan setups and any possible shouds? and would the XSPC pump handle the 3 blocks and rads?


I am open to all suggestions, and any input is appreciated. Thanks for your time.

The RX360 would handle them well if you dont OC but when go water if you dont overclock?

not sure about the pump but you can mount rads for sure.

Hey, sorry if I was unclear.

I was wondering what radiator (or multiple radiators) and fan combination would be suitable for cooling the two video cards and CPU.

i think a 360 + 240 rad would give you plenty of cooling to really push your system.

the mcp350 pump is great and has plenty of head pressure to push through all of the blocks and rads.

Thanks for the reply. Any idea if it would be productive to internally mount a 120.2 rad internally without removing the bottom bay? I was thinking the only way to effectively fit it would be putting a fan on the bottom 120mm fan slot, the 240mm rad on top of that, then put thin fans on the other 3 spots on the radiator so it will fit under the 2nd GTX 570. If this makes any sense let me know, thanks.

I'll try to show it a bit better

A single 480 radiator would cool you loop quite well and would fit in the top of your case with a little bit of modding. If you have any questions about this feel free to ask as I myself did the exact same thing for my build.

i would agree with charliehorse. you should be able to mount all of it internally with your case.

You can fit a 240 rad at the bottom of the 700/800D without modding the case at all. A 240 rad will fit on it's side in between the lower HD cage with enough room for push or pull fans and a shroud.

Alternatively, you can put a 480 up top, or a 360 up top + a 120/140 at the rear, or even a 360 up top and a 120/140 at the bottom.

If you're doing heavy overclocking though, you'll need more than a single 360 rad in order to have optimal temperatures.

Hey I really appreciate that reply. I currently have a left over decent quality 120mm rad and I have an unused 120mm Rad from my old H50. Would it be advisable to set up something like this:?

XSPC Pump/Res in the 5.25 bays -> 360mm Rad mounted on the top with push-pull config -> CPU block -> 120mm rear mounted rad -> GPU block 1 -> GPU block 2 -> H50 120mm Rad mounted on the bottom fan slot -> pump/res

Would that work out? Or should I just skip on the H50 Rad and do the same loop but from the last GPU block back to the res?

Sorry to be such a pain, but anyone got some fan recommendations? I was thinking about getting 8 or so of these (http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11...l=g36c437s1124) being sold for $7 each. They are for sure quiet enough for my liking, but will the lack of pressure make them useless?


Thank you all a ton
