New build doubts

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello friends this is my first water cooling build on my upcoming pc and i got couple of questions .. before that i will mention what all i have in my list to buy for the build

Cabnet - Corsair Obsidian 800D going to use my current case which i use on my core 2 duo with air for the water cooling build which i think no need to change . Lots of my friends said its the best case for water cooling so iam sticking to it

Cpu block - Apogee XT CPU Waterblock

Rad - Swiftech MCR320 Quiet Power Res Series 120mm Heat Exchanger Black

Pump - Swiftech MCP655 12v DC Pump - with Speed Controller

Res - EK Multioption RES X2 - 150 Advanced & Koolance Pump Nozzle & Reservoir Base for PMP-450/S

Tubing & Fittings - PrimoFlex Pro LRT UV Red Tubing -3/8in. ID X 1/2in & Koolance and Bitspower fittings

Those are my settings which will power my i7 980x on the loop with Rampage 3 motherboard and 4gb ram and mostly a 750-800 watt psu


Now the question i got is about adding 2 gpu blocks in the same loop with 2 gtx480 atleast and will single 320mm radiator is enough for this ? or i need to add a additional radiator ? iam totaly new to this any help would be great

1/2in tubing is much, much better.
also, with multiple gtx 480's on that thing, I would add a second, smaller radiator.

yeah 480 sli or a 580 single card with ek water block .. the triple rad will be able to handle those ? few of my friends sujjested to add a additional 120 or a 240 rad .. i wont be doing NB / Chipset block just my cpu and 1 or 2 gpu cards

A 320 rad is enough to barley cool 2 480s if you add in a CPU you will want at Least another 120 or 240 which your case choice can handle easily.

Thanks guys for all the replies .. and can i able to mount a second rad inside my case or i need to get a rad box and mount it on back of the case ? iam going to mount that 320 rad on the top

You should be able to squeak a 240 in the 800d easily and mount the 360 on the top. I think you can fit it in the bottom bay. But I could be wrong.

It would be great if can mount a 240 rad in the bottom of the cabnet so everything will be done inside the pc . But many told me i need to remove the hard drive racks in the bottom to place a rad iam not sure if thats true

It looks like you can fit a 240 in the bottom but it's hard to say for sure. It would be a tight fit against the psu.
