Water Cooling Project Advice (HAF X/Sandy/580) - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I had no prob mounting a thick rad in the HAF-X - yes it does come down further towards the mobos but I had no issues fitting it against the MSI or ASUS boards I've used so far.

The large fans up top for push/pull in the X looks better and if you went push/pull in the 932 - the spacing towards the mobo becomes the same as the X unless you wanted to mount fans externally.

Wow, some nice builds. I appreciate the comments and love seeing what you guys have done. I guess I am leaning toward your setup septro though ignoring the 120 rad for now and obviously not having sli to begin with. Looks like the 45s come in handy. Do you have any on your res/pump? From that angle it looks like you might have one going to the 120 rad?

Though I am wondering if I should reverse the rad fittings and go respump/rad/cpu/gpu/res? Or would it really matter?

As for your 360, you are using two 200mm fans for pull? While your clearance does not seem to be an issue, I think I would simply go with a thinner rad.

Also, for the gpu, any thoughts on those 2 preinstalled for coverage blocks, either the 6970 or 580? I think it comes down to cost versus lifetime warranty.

Any slightly cheaper fans that are still quiet and move decent amount of air?

septro, nice build. I am going to virtually copy your cooling loop when my parts come in this week. How are your temps?


and Huckleberry, if you want to HAF X with a 360 and 120, go like septro and myself did, it fits with room to spare.

Go with a thicker rad , over 2 times the cooling area. the thin rad i had was ~100 in inches in cooling area, the thick 240 rad was 90. that's why i got a thick 480 rad. i got a mcp 655? with a Detroit terma top DETROIT baby the big D(depression). get gt1850 Moves alot of air make a little noise. as for 580 water block. ONLY thing i got was mcw80 did not fit (cried) lucky i got a few spare blocks. mcw60 fits fine. thare was a few bolts that would hit on mcw80. traded my other spare mcw60 for mobo. But the mcw60 fits fine. cools nice 900core 772 stock 43degs full load (folding). had r4s pushpull on haf 932 to loud. had 3000rpm fans WAY to loud even with fan controller then had a few blade-masters got gt1850 now great fans.

Its more to do with how far the fins are apart, swiftech rads works best with mid range rpm fans, xspc is gear towards < 1000 rpm fans and those black ice gtx works best with fans over 2000 rpms.

I use swiftech myself since mid range fans are quiet enough not to drive me crazy but xspc will work best if you have a fan controller and tune ur fans down for a true silent build. Push pull and kinda over rated the most you can get out of it is 1-2 degree better temps you are better off with good fans eg gentle typhoons and a shroud to maximise cooling.

Here's mine and the heat output from the rads are incredible when the 3 gtx580s goes to work yessir.gif
