i7-980, 3xGTX580, HAF-X Setup Questions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

I've been trying to get feedback to finialize this build. So far what I've selected:

CPU: EK Supreme HF (plate #1)
Mobo: EK 4way SLI Classified FB chipset block
GPU: 3x EK FC-580 (may add one more in the future)
Pump: 2x MCP355, if I get a top either EK dual or XSPC dual top
Reservior: Either Koolance RP-402 or generic/multi-option rez

My questions are for the radiators. I don't think I have enough space for the amount of cooling area I'm going to need internally (HAF-X) so I will probably get an external radiator setup.

The easiest would be to setup with a MO-RA3 and attach 9 fans but I'm not sure about the wiring or performance on that.

The other option would be to go with a 2x 480 rad setup but I don't know how to get them mounted in a clean fashion. Does anyone know of a shroud/mounting setup for this?

The last thing I'm confused about is how to control all the fans, and perhaps setting up some kind of temperature monitoring system.

Any Ideas?

I ran Martin's flow calculator and it seems that the two pumps will be fine for the restriction but the Koolance RP-402X2 seems to provide less flow. I'm not sure how accurate the comparison is though.

building a radbox isn't too hard. you could do what this guy did. make it a bit larger to fit dual 480's. http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...completed.html

Looks pretty good, I'd need to make something for at least two 480's though. Any people on the board built a shroud/radbox for two rads?
