Planning Mountain Mods Builds, Rad Config. Help?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I am planning to build 3 MM Extended Ascension duality case builds with two builds inside per case. Here is my parts list so far:

Per Case:

CPU: Xeon w3670 (970) x2
Motherboard: Asus P6X58D-E x2
Ram: G.skill ripjaw 3x4gb cl9 x2
PSU: SuperFlower Golden Green PRO 650W x2
HDD: WD Caviar Blue 500 GB x2
GPU: ? Renderfarm cluster, doesn't have to be fancy. x2
Lian Li triple bay 3.5" HDD hot swap bay.
Fans: Scythe Kaze 2/Nanoxia @1000-1100 rpm
Fan controller: ?

Watercooling:
2x XSPC X20 750 Dual bay pump/res combo. Planning on installing them on the top two drive bays, so I can just remove a top panel grill and have access to the fill ports.

Radiators:
1x Phobya Xtreme NOVA 1080 Radiator (9x120 rad) I want to install this on the top panel, pulling air out.
1x Magicool Hexa Radiator 720mm (6x120 rad) planning on pulling air out the front.

Fittings:? Maybe Bitspower.
Tubing:? Not sure yet.

CPU blocks: EK-Supreme HF Full Copper x2

There will be 3x120 + 4x80mm intake fans at the back, and I am wondering if there will be too much negative pressure/not enough fresh air being pushed inside the case for this setup. Want to go single loop, as I am hoping the 9x120 rad will also lower temps for the other cpu being fed water from the 6x120 rad.

I realize it's a bit overkill for just CPU cooling, but I think that if I have 6 overclocked systems side by side it's going to get a bit toasty in a non air conditioned room. My goal is to reach 4.4ghz on each CPU with a max load temp of 65C. The purpose of these systems is to render 3d animation in Autodesk Maya 2011 using the Vray render.

Thank you for reading my post, I look forward to reading your suggestions.

Authie.

Tubing has to be PrimoChill. Tygon is overpriced. Primochill also offers colors so you don't need dye or additives to gunk up your loop. For fittings, most people recommend barbs over compressions but if you do your compressions right, they should be good.

Thanks for the tips, I did not know about either. I would have thought compression fittings are safer than barbs? I'm guessing you can also barb a 40/90 degree angle fittings?

Edit: My main concern about this rad/fan layout is it having a lot of negative pressure, 3x120mm + 4x80mm fans as intake, and a total of 15x120mm fans pulling air out from the two radiators. Would I see a noticeable improvement in this config. vs 12x120mm radiator size with fans pulling but having more intake fans?
