about h20-220 edge

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
hello guys newbie alert here . I was wondering if the swiftech mcp-35x pump on the h20-220/320 edge can handle an additional 140mm rad and a GPU waterblock (VID-NX580) without affecting much of the flow rate and temperature. The loop goes something like this :

CPU-->140mm RAD-->GPU-->120mm x2 RAD

The MCP line is a great line because it can handle most loops out there usually 2 rads a cpu and 1/2 gpu blocks. The minor difference between pumps is the head pressure the 335 has more than the 655 iirc. But for your set up the 35x will work just fine. You might wanna go for a 240/360 rad in there if you can your temps with 2 small rads might be high depending on how much your gonna OC. What case are you gonna run your setup in and what are you looking to push your system to.

i currently have a HAF-X case and an old setup with a new graphics card which consists mainly of a QX9650 (oc'd to 3.8ghz w/ a CM V8) and a GTX 580. I want to push my CPU to its maximum stable OC possible and the GPU passed the 900mhz barrier without frying them so i decided to go water cooling.

The HAF-X is a great case for those who go from air to water You can easily fit a RASA RX 360 in the top and you also have the option of adding 2 120 rads on the back/bottom of the case. For you I would go with the 360 for sure and maybe another 120 on the back/bottom should keep your toasty parts nice and chilled. If you have a budget I can look to see whhat might work for you.

Have you bought the kit yet? If not, XSPC's Rasa kits are a good option. The RX360 version should work great for you.

I think there's a bit of false savings involved with those Rasa kits, made worse by XSPC's iffy quality control and and customer service (US support seems to consist of one guy in Hong Kong).

Getting another set of tubes is basically a given (The stock tubes seem to have a tendency to turn brown) and the pump limits upgradability. The Swiftech kit's pump is one of the best in the business.

This came off a lot more negative than I really intended. The Rasa kit will be cheaper but the Swiftech kit will probably be more reliable, and its components will last through more upgrades. Plus, speed adjustable pump.

im planning on spending around 500 bucks for the whole loop atm and what GPU waterblock would you recommend for a GTX 580? im really interested in getting the koolance VID-NX580 which i can get for 100$ but after i saw the bitspower black freezer i got confused as it is one cool looking piece of acrylic goodness.

i really do prefer swiftech over XSPC both in aesthetic and performance reasons. The reason im eying out the h20-320 edge is because of its compact design and "said to be" expandability option.
