Help with new loop

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am going xfire and want to redo my loop when I do. Currently I have just a CPU loop with a rs240 rasa kit.. I am planning on replacing the RS240 with a Rx360, and adding another 5850, plus cool both Cards...

Current card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150477

Adding this card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-370-_-Product

Blocks for cards : http://www.frozencpu.com/products/99...talNickel.html

I'm Not really sure on the compatibility of the blocks with my specific card... No blocks have my card/future card listed as compatible....

The have memory backplates. Are they necessary? Will this help overclocking and be 'safer' : http://www.frozencpu.com/products/10...l=g30c309s1050

As for fittings I will be adding a couple bits power 45degree fittings for the GPU blocks and 90degree fittings for the CPUblock, just because I think it makes it look a lot cleaner... Are Crossfire fittings necessary for the setup or can I just use barbed fittings with a short piece of tubing?


I will be using the pump from the rasa kit but considering upgrading it soon... This is mostly a birthday present from the G/F but the pump puts it out of budget...

Please offer any suggestions on anything... Really never done the GPU cooling but really excited to jump into it... Thank you for your time and any responses

You need both the Water Blocks and the Backplates. Both cards are compatible with the water blocks. Also you need crossfire fittings.

Don't replace your rad, just add another one. Then you will have the cooling power of both rads.

I was thinking about adding a rx240, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to make it look good in my case... And Ill have to do some case modding to put it in the bottom... I was looking at some pictures of the ref vs non ref design and they look completely different under the hood... This wont give me problems installing the ref block on them? also is that asus fine, or should I get another brand?

After doing a bunch of searching Im thinking of just getting 2 6950s and selling my 5850, and skipping the water cooling for now... 2 6950s at stock will kill 2 overclocked watercooled 5850s and I'm looking at the same price for each option... Thanks for the replies!

I want to get 2 6950s that currently have blocks out for them, Are all of the designs currently the same? If a block fits the sapphire will it fit the MSI twin frozer?
