I think i will need more than one 360mm radiator but i'm not sure where i could mount any more radiators in my HAF 932 apart from a 120mm radiator in the back fan mount.

RX360 in push/pull would do nicely, that's what I had (even in a HAF932) and it did a 920 and 2 5970's quite well.

If you want really good temps then slam a 240 down the bottom (mod it).

Blast it, ninja'd.

Thanks for the help. How about one 360mm and a 120mm?. I'm looking at the XSPC EK series radiators as they are cheaper than the RX series and i've heard that they perform quite well.

Thoughts on corrosion with copper/brass only?

Do you mean the EX series? Yes they do perform well. I would recommend at least a 1500 RPM fan though as they are a lot thinner.

At 600 and 800 they don't perform that well, but at 1200RPM+ they perform better then the RX series. A 360 and 12 EX would do very well with some decent spinning fans.

Wow, that's the first time I've ever heard of that. Usually copper and brass play nice. That was a good read but only the first time I've ever heard of that happening with anything else. Shouldn't happen with distilled water. Also, keep an electric current out of the water and should be right to go.

^That.

Yeah i meant the EX series. For some reason i thought i was called the EK series tongue.gif
I might start off with a CPU only loop first with a XSPC Raystorm, 360mm EX Radiator and the dual bay pump/reservoir.
The new motherboard i'm looking at will give me a 1 slot gap between my 2 GPU's which should improve my temperatures as there's no gap between them at the moment.
I'm also looking at getting either a Bitfenix Shiniobi XL of a NZXT Switch 810. The 810 can fit a 240mm radiator in the bottom without modding which will be helpful if i decide to add my GPU's to the loop.

I love the switch 810. I have this monster case labs that I love to but i'm pretty sure I will be buying that case the minute it comes out

I dunno, I would've done a few things differently to it in my case; it is pretty awesome though.

I want the opportunity to design a case frown.gif
post #129 of 131
Will a 140.3 and 120.2 radiator allow me to reasonably cool a 3930K and 2 7970s with 1100 RPM fans? I'm designing my first water-cooled system and I'm having a difficult time finding a case that looks great (not just a giant metal box filled with radiators) and can house more heat exchangers than the aforementioned 420 mm and 240 mm radiators. I'd love to be able to throw 2 140.4 monsters in a case and call it a day, but it's impossible to do that unless I start considering cases that don't do it for me aesthetically. Thanks!

Yes! Quite easily. You'll have some nice temps smile.gif
