Will single rad do this? Adding a second rad to 600T

post #1 of 75
Thread Starter 
I am contemplating getting that RS240 kit and cool my

i5 2500k
2x6950's

Do you think it could handle it?

Side question, even with a better pump, could a single RS240 handle this much heat? If NOT, could the 200MM phobya handle it on it's own?

Trying to decide if the extra $100 is worth it for the phobya.

case = 600T

No you will want at least a 360 if not 480 rad to cool all of that. A 240 will cool a cpu only.
So you will either need to get a 360 or 480 rad or pick the 2 240 rads to cool all of that nicely.

RX 360 maybe but would get higher temps. Maybe a good 480? What case do you have?

I would go RX360 + RX240.

soo 240 + 200mm is what I have to do.

I can't get another 240 into my 600T...wish I could, but the front would be to scrunched I think.

That will not cut it.

EDIT: You will need to externally mount the rad if you keep that case. Honestly I would sell that case get a HAF X or 800D and then get the rads.

Those cases are far too big frown.gif. The HAF does not have the cable management the Corsair's do either, so definitely skipping it.

Looks like I MIGHT be able to fit a 240 in the front, so i'll have 240x2...nice. The RS240 is 60 bucks less then the 200mm phobya, makes me happy.

ANyone have any pictures of a 240 up front?

wat.

I don't think you understand. That WILL NOT be enough. NO NO NO NO NO.

The RS240 sucks, you NEED more. If you are going to insist on getting another 240 get the RX240 not RS. Big difference.


Also those two cases have EXCELLENT cable management. Best in the industry.



EDIT: /facepalm. Please do it and post your great temps. /sarcasm

I know the 800D has great cable management, the HAF X does not have the grommits I like.

I am sticking with the 600T...I already went through that throught process when I bought it, haha.

I know a 200mm + rs240 is possible for 2GPU + 1CPU :

Could always mount a 360 on the rear of the case and try and squeeze a 240 slim up to or 240 thicker in the bottom. And the HAFs have great cable management imo if you are creative with some twist ties and a Dremel. Also 240 slims in push/pull run like a thick in push.

I also want to keep it inside. I know the 240RS will fit on the top, I am trying to figure what can fit in the front now. I know the 200mm does, but was hoping a 240mm would, but that might not cut it.
