Get a MCP655 or add another EK-DCP 4.0?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Basically I want to get rid of my XSPC Rasa RX360 kit (CPU block and Res/Rad) and create 1 single loop. Currently I have one loop for the CPU (Rasa RX360 kit) and a custom loop for my GTX 580 (EK-FC580 block, EK-DCP 4.0 pump, EK 250 Multioption X2 Res, Black Ice GT Stealth 240 Rad and 1/2" tubing)

I will be changing the CPU block to the EK Supreme HF and making the tubing all 1/2" ID 3/4" OD (The GPU loop is this but the RX360 kit is 7/16" ID tubing)

So what you guys recommend I do?

Add another EK-DCP 4.0 pump (So the loop will go something like Res>Pump>Rad>CPU>2nd Pump>Rad>GPU>Res) or should I get a Swiftech MCP655? (Or a similar, more powerful pump).

Or better yet, would 1 x EK-DCP 4.0 be enough?

My i7 930 is OC'd to 4.2GHz @ 1.325v and GPU is at 950c @ 1.113v.

EDIT: I am also considering SLI 580's within the next 4 months, so expansion should be taken into consideration

The EK-DCP 4.0 is about half the price here in Australia so this is why I ask. I don't want to pay all that extra money to get a MCP655 if I don't have too.

Why are you going to change the cpu block there is no point.

I've already got the 240 rad as well, so I figured I would have it in the loop rather than have it lying on my desk uselessly.

@ CPU block change;

I'm just not that happy with the results I'm seeing with the Rasa block. I have reseated it many times, changed TIM in case of poor spreading etc. and the temps are still hitting around 70*c full load so figured I would try the EK Supreme HF with a new setup and try and lower them.

I'm more worried if the EK-DCP 4.0 will be enough.

Also, I should update the OP and mention I am considering SLI 580's in future

Rasa block performs almost exactly like the ek block. Your ambient temps and voltage are going to depict the temps
