I have to agree with you on that point... even the UT60's are silly in most builds (mine is definitely an example... ST30's would cool better actually). I almost never see someone with Monstas running 2500RPM+ fans on them... so basically almost no-one is getting any advantage from the extra weight, cost, space, and additional coolant - with the possible advantage of an extra liter or two of coolant having a slightly better dispersal I suppose.

The reasons are obvious, of course, I mean if we all wanted an airplane sitting next to our desks - we could have just gone with air cooling in the first place and saved a ton of cash! But at some point I think the radiating volume and the minimum of air movement are potentially degrading the cooling performance of the system rather than improving it.

Then again... I live where almost every one of my neighbors has a 3"-5" lift kit on their humongous 4X4 trucks... which never see any off-road driving unless they accidentally back over their landscaping... so I suppose the epeen factor outweighs almost every other aspect as far as Monstas are concerned. biggrin.gif

True this - I only have a monsta because Alphacool sent me one as part of the sponsorship package, I wanted UT60s lol but they sent me a variety pack.

Such a waste of money......you could easily of used a 1200-1500w. What made you go with 2 PSU's?

Well, he's running quad xfire, so if he's heavily OC'ing the cards and procs, a 1200w really isn't enough.

Just curious, are you running quad-xfire or 4-way xfire? And yes, there is a difference.

Rubbish.

I have 2 heavily clocked Westmeres,Tri Sli and mucho watercooling...at the wall with fully loaded CPU's and GPU's,the draw is less than 1300w.

Nowhere near 2500w at all,it doesnt even stress my 1500w Enermax.

Want more?

Ok, then maybe he just wanted two then. What do you care if he wanted to "waste" his own money?

No one, that's the glory of forums, you wanted to ask him a question that only he answered, PM him. Otherwise, it's a PUBLIC post.
