Need some help deciding

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

Thought I could get some input on what to do in the upcoming months for me with my second build. I currently have 2 5870's and the cpu watercooled. My mother board is getting exchanged out and I will be buying a block for that also. Just seems like its running way to hot on air and everything needs to have seperate loops. Im looking at this resivor with adding on the pumps for $259..

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=30131

Is it a good idea for that? Or should I go ahead and do 2 different ones with differnt pumps or? Im just not sure on actually what I honestly want to do yet so I figured I'd ask. I have no spending limit's. I also already have a trip 120mm rad. Also have a Corsair 700D for the case. I also thought about a 2nd rad along with this so this trip rad isn't doing everything. Any input's?

Thanks in advance

( sorry if any of this didn't make sense )

I would not buy that. The koolance pmp-400s in that res are not that good. They are rebrandings of the swiftech 355 but with a horrible warranty policy. I would get 2 swiftech 355s or, if money is not an object, two mcp 655s. 655s are so nice. They are a little bigger but they are much quiter and much more powerful than the pmp-400. Also I would get another triple rad or possible a quad rad and set up your system up with 2 loops, one for cpu and mobo with one triple rad, and one for 5870s and the triple/quad. Just FYI, you will see almost no performance increase by wcing the mobo. If you skip the mobo, you could pick up a dual rad to go with the triple and do a single loop with everything plus a mcp655. this would save you money as well.

wow are you doing intense ocing on all comoponents? because the system you are suggestion is like xtreme to the intense power
i would recommend however that you stick with you suggested res and then have the following system:

Res---->rad 1---->pump 1---->cpu------>mobo blocks---->and back to res
l;kajsdl;fRad 2---->pump 2---->gpu 1---->gpu 2---->and back to res

I am currently cooling 2 480gtx gpus, 1 i7 980x cpu and the full motherboard all off one fesser 480 quad rad. The swiftech 480 would probably do you just fine if you dont have room for the 480 then for sure 2 360mm rads, swiftech 320qp rads will do and save you alot on rad prices

if you use 2 360's then from the first rad goto the cpu then the motherboard then to gpus the second rad and back to the res and then to the first rad again

if you run 2 loops
1 - cpu and motherboard
2 - gpus
