Thanks, I assume a single mcp655 should be enough though?

I am not sure. I imagine that if you ran the D5 at high speed / setting 4 or 5 then it would be okay, but I am not sure. Plus I know - like me - that you want low noise, so pump on 5 might be a bit noisier. Ask someone else with more knowledge about pumps. My plan is to have 1 D5 but keep an open mind about fitting another if I find pump noise a problem. Conventional advice is that I am crazy to consider >1 pump for CPU and 2 GPU, but most people dont understand how restrictive the Nemesis GTS are. See: Thermal bench test of Nemesis GTS 480

That's great to know, I'd think I'd have to make a change of plans then. I'm not open to adding another pump so that would be a problem. I think it would kill the aesthetic I'm going for. Are there any other non-restrictive rads that pair well with SP120s in push at very low rpms? Preferably something that's 30mm thick. Though the nemesis seemed like a great option.

Well, don't let me put you off plan A with the Nemesis GTS: ask one of the more experienced builders for some advice on the flow restriction first. But as a plan B to the Nemesis GTS, the Magicool G2 Slim is almost as efficient as the HWLabs. It is also 27mm thick rather than 30mm. The Alphacool Nexxesod ST30 is another thin form factor radiator, but it is not as efficient as the first two. I would not consider it personally.

You might also find this chart interesting: I calculated this from a combination of radiatior and fan test data available from various places on the internet.



This data was for push only using Noiseblocker eLoops.

Looking for a clear res with black top/bottom and silver/black/gold rods (since they're interchangeable), and the mountings.

I am pretty sure you will get your wish!!

Would I be having too many exhausts and too little intake? I want to run all the fans at a low 600-750 rpm including the af120s in the front. Pretty much any config in the SM8 would leave you with negative air pressure. Would this be too much of a problem? Any feedback or different setups for the SM8 would be appreciated.

The rule of thumb is (at least for me) 1 rad fan space for every component you wish top cool, PLUS - 1 more...

Forget the bottom rad - and forget exhausting through a rad in the rear. just use a single exhaust fan there...

Then, all rads as intake and exhaust through the rear fan without a rad attached to it...

Remember you are cooling the components, pushing hot case air through a rad only makes your coolant warmer and as a result your components will have higher temps. Intake the cooler outside air through the rads for more effective cooling... thumb.gif

That's what I've done, It works for me...

But, you may do as you please biggrin.gif

there is a 360 rad mount for the front you can buy.
post #14820 of 22437
Yea I just got my 360 rad mount. I will have 360 up front as Intake. Rear will be single fan exhaust and I'll have a top mounted 480 which I plan to have as Intake but that's still up for debate.
