Water cooling quad SLI
I came across this system and wonder if all of this hardware could be cooled by a single 360 rad http://www.ebay.com/itm/GAMING-Slinky-Supercomputer-Nvidia-GeForce-GTX-TITAN-Quad-SLI-/300847429965
Very poorly I imagine. Even with a higher FPI, thick radiator with amazing fans it couldn't handle all of that heat.
I think the "External water-cooling system" that isn't included (or needed apparently) has a fair bit to do with how well it runs.
I'd be interested to find out whether they load test the machines before they sell them, a 360mm could probably handle it at idle, but under load it wouldn't take long for things to shut down from overheating I bet.
Wow , a $12'000 computer!!! That's unbelievable, and I thought I spent a lot of money on my computer.
You won't be able to cool that with a single 360mm radiator, I have a 360mm rad for cooling my two GTX 680 Classifieds and that's with push/pull fans. I will say though that the temps are very low and I could add a third card and it will be cooled. Four is too many though.
What you would need is a 560mm rad with fans in push/pull and that would cool the four Titans.
There would be no use for that computer unless you were doing folding @ home or renting it out to the Dept. of Defense. Four Titans is way overkill for any game , but it would be a great show piece.
