post #15211 of 22189
Hey All,

Looking for some feedback if I am making the right radiator and fan choice for my upcoming SMA8 build.

My primary goal right now is silence since the bottom chamber will almost be at my ear level on the desk right next to me. To start with I am going to have a 6700K and a 980Ti on this loop. I am planning to get another 980Ti in few months. At which point I will do two loops and use the bottom rad for the two GPUs.

I am planning to get a 560GTS & NoiseBlocker PK-3 fans, both linked below. I am going to run them on low RPM most of the time.

http://www.performance-pcs.com/noiseblocker-nb-blacksilentpro-pk-3-140mm-x-25mm-ultra-quiet-fan-1700-rpm-27-dba.html

Any flaws in this combo that I am missing?

I will be using a 560GTS as well. However, I will also be using the new EK Vardars that were just released. The 560GTS is a great rad.

I love those fans as I have 18 of the PMW version of them on my MORA 140*9

That is a good rad but I love my Alphacool thick rads.. I have plenty of room so it does not matter.

Look at this to help you with your project..

Yea, since I am planning to run the fans at RPM, I was considering 560SR2 as well but since its almost $95 more on PPC, I find 560GTS to be much better value. I was leaning towards Vardars as well but the 120mm version seemed to be a bit on the louder side as per what I read. Hoping to see some testing data on the 140mm as well.

Did you mean XT45 or UT60? Wondering if I be able to use all the performance at low RPM fans?

I have 4 UT60 560 rads and 2 UT45 180*3 rads plus a mora 140*9!! and the thinner rads do work better with lower rpm fans but i like to have the thick with high rom fans i run low and silent till water starts to heat up but i have never had this problem. 😀

And I thought my 3 360s and 3 240s (avg thickness >60mm) were pushing it blushsmiley.gif

120mm rads is so 2014 though! Go all 140 and 180mm instead biggrin.gif
post #15220 of 22189
I luv me some cougars (140s) biggrin.gif. Too bad there's not as many good rad fans for 140 vs the 120s.


Do you have pics of the 180 setup btw if you got it working?
