HELP!!! I need advice because i'm new to this stuff.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, thanks in advance.

Heres my current build.
Corsair 800D, MSI 890FXA-GD70 (went with over the crosshair 4 formula for the extra pcie slot, and the color), 1090t @ 4.2Ghz 1.43 volts, 8 gigs corsair dominator 1600 ram, 120g RevoDive, and heres the biggie... 3 way crossfireX 6970s OCed.

I already have the water blocks for everything, got them from Danger Den because they look sweet lol. I have a triple rad on the top and a 120 at the back, all in push pull using UV blue gelid wing fans, and a D5 pump (the Koolance version if it makes a difference.)

My current loop is: pump, res, 360 rad, cpu, 120 rad, gpus, and back to the pump.

TEMPS:
room temp ~20C
IDLE:
CPU-19C-21C
GPU's-~30C avg between the 3 cards

LOAD: Prime95 and Furmark at max setting and 5988x1080
CPU-~37C
GPU-~50C-53C


What I'm wondering is if I should do a duel loop....

I would get another D5 pump and a T-virus res lol (so badass looking)

I would use the 120m rad just for the cpu and use the non variable pump with my XSPC duel drive bay res for that. Maybe get closer to a 4.5Ghz overclock too.
And use the 360m rad for the gpus with the variable speed D5 and the tvirus res.

I know I won't see that much better temps but I don't want to overclock my gpus and my cpu that much more on the same loops. And theres no budget for this build so who cares.

So please give my your info on this and ill post some pics in the morning of my current loop and then more pics if I change it in the next week or so. Thanks guys.

Welcome to OCN!

I definitely want to see pics

I am not the most knowledgeable with water cooling so consider this a free bump.
however yes the t virus rad is killer i would put that in if you have $$ to spend for the bling.

Apparently you don't want to mound any rad externally? Because you could mound a gtx360 on the back and use that for the gpus. or just add it to the loop.

I don't really know if separating the loop like you are thinking of doing will lower you cpu temps a all. i have a feeling it won't make any improvement but i could be wrong. something you just have to try or maybe someone here knows better? at 53c load you still have room for a little more volts too

hope that helps
