Water Cooling with MO-RA3 Radiator for SB Build Questions?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
After a lot of reading on both chilled water cooling and regular water cooling. I am going to get the MO-RA3 with the floor pads for outside my Haf X case mounting and 9x120 "Ultra Kaze" fans. My ambient temps are right around 65F all year long.(Finished Basement) The pump is the MCP 655 adjustable. I am also going to use 9 "Phobya Shroud & Decoupling" pieces. I will be cooling the 2600K CPU and a GTX 580 GPU.

QUESTIONS:
How does this sound for cooling capacity? What is the best way to connect all the fans. Do I still need a Reservoir? I have a EK res right now. This will be a new build.

THANKS!

No need for such high speed fans, with such a large radiator the difference in temperature between Ultra-Kaze's and 1450 RPM GentleTyphoons will be within 2C, and the difference in noise would be HUGE. To connect the fans get the Phobya 9 to 1 Fan Splitter. You will need a reservoir some where in your loop, but the EK one you already have should work fine.

Wow that is a ton of rad for just a cpu and single gpu!
Agreed, get the slower fans becuase with all that area you wont need super fast fans.
