personally I would not use any of the stuff mentioned. swiftech makes a good coolant, and koolance 702 clear is a good coolant. I use a 20% prestone (green) antifreeze, with a 80% distilled water mix. I have been using this for over 20 years now and I have never had a issues with it.LOL!!! I don't know dude, something about Mayhems just does not sit right with me.
Still using the original H320 (in push/pull) that Swiftech unfortunately had to stop selling due to some patent crap a while back. The cooler is a beast and amazing still do this day like, I don't know, around 5-7 years later or something. It cooled overclocked/overvolted 4930Ks, a 5930K, an 8700K and now a 9700K like a beast. It laughs at the 9700K at 5.2 GHz in the 1.35v - 1.38v area (as long as not using crazy AVX, lol). I have the slightly updated revision of the original H320 which included an upgraded/revised pump (if I remember correctly, the revised version can be distinguished with 3 cables instead of 2 coming out of the pump/block or something like that). Anyways, I just want to say the Swiftech H320 is amazing and going strong as hell still to this day and with modern, overclocked/overvolted processors. Easily the best cooler I've owned in my life.
The only way to figure that out is by testing your specific build. There is no magic number, as it will vary greatly from build to build.I've got the X3 H360 with a CPU unit only. What pump speed would be best for heat dissipation?
Yes.With the H360 X3 can I use my noise blocker fans instead of there's and just have the cpu showing its RGB and use there controller/splitter to control the color of the cpu block
Fantastic, that gives me a great point of comparison, taI got a CPU+GPU loop of a 360X3 pump runs @1800-1900 on idle and set to run 100% "APROX. 3000RPM" @ 65 degrees.
I understand, having a method to solve for pump speed will allow me to optimize that. Much appreciatedThe only way to figure that out is by testing your specific build. There is no magic number, as it will vary greatly from build to build.
Set the pump and fans at full speed and heatsoak the loop using a consistent stress test. Once stabilized, back down the speed of the pump by 250 rpm and wait ten minutes. Repeat this until you see a temperature rise. Once you see a temp rise, raise the speed of the pump by 250 rpm. This will set you at your minimum speed without any loss of performance.
Fans on low + looks 😉
Swiftech says it’s ok.
Heh , i built mines for the looks when it was a center of the livingroom , now its sitting silently in the corner
I just do it cause I like to get free stuff lolHeh , i built mines for the looks when it was a center of the livingroom , now its sitting silently in the corner /forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif
