building new loop, would like some advice :)

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Would really like to hear your thoughts on this build...

Eheim PCPS 12v pump
EK Supreme HF full copper
EK Water Blocks EK-CoolStream RAD XT 360
EK Water Blocks EK-FC580 GTX
Innovatek tubing

Only option is
Hardware Labs Black ICE Radiator GT Stealth 360 XFlow
or
Hardware Labs Black ICE Radiator GT Stealth 360
so one of those above instead EK one...

So my question would be, how much can i expect from that loop compared to H50 i have, and is one 360 rad enough for clocked GTX570 and 965 clocked on 4.3ghz, i mean h50 is holding cpu under 62C on full load... target temps are under 50c, can i expect that with 6x Scythes on push/pull on one of those rads?

360 Radiator will definitely be fine for that setup unless I am missing a SLI. Push pull might be an overkill. Try first with a push + shroud setup.

sounds all good, thought i can think of better radiators than the EK, go with either of the black ice ones

You will want to avoid a x-flow rad; you'll get better cooling out of the dual-pass. BIX rads are typically high FPI, so you'll need some med-high CFM fans for best results.

Any reason why only BIX and EK stuff in your list? Does that have to do with a specific online vendor/int'l shipping?

I am really having a great trouble to find any review on that pump i cant even find how many liters it is pushing per hour, no presure too

thx for fast reply, and no, i dont have sli, one is more then i need on 1080p tbh, even not clocked is running every game on full except bloody metro but i dont really care

ok, just that some reviews say EK is better, some say black ice is better

But still, my main question is, will that be able to keep my cpu under 50-55C, basicly will it be better than H50 by 10C

You may want to consider getting nickel blocks instead of copper ones. Copper tarnishes and ends up not looking so good after 6-12 months use. That's in my experience anyway.

XSPC Rasa RS360 kit + your GPU block would be good as well...and cost you less. One option to consider, if there is availability.

And yes, most watercooling loops will out perform the H50 by a decent margin.

For what you are spending on the pump, rads and blocks, you would have saved money.

i kinda dont understand your post

i am getting stuff from www.caseking.de with a budget of 250 eur...

i have a lot of Scythes on 1900rpm/110cfm, so i think i am ok with high cfm fans...
