i need to cool cpu two gtx 260 ssc and the chipset. what size of radiator i need to get? and what pump is the best for that?

More about : radiator pump

This is the pump I've been using for the last 3 years. http://www.dangerden.com/store/dd12v-d5_pump-variable-s...

I'm not sure what your budget for this is but the bigger the radiator the better. I used a radiator like this with my setup. http://www.dangerden.com/store/black-ice-gtx360.html

From what little I've read about the 260's temps they are fairly close to what my 8800 GTS was. With stock coolers a single card was hitting 80+ C. With SLI they were over 90 C. I used a radiator like that one and dropped my load temps with sli down to around 54 C.

Note: I was using full coverage blocks for my GPUs.

What waterblocks are you using on your GPUs? I see two different CPU waterblocks in there.

The stuff you list looks fine. The biggest thing you want to avoid is using parts with dissimilar metals in them to avoid galvanic corrosion. http://www.dangerden.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=9188

you recommend to get 2 radiators, two fan each how about CPU? ( to Shadow703793 )

it is not 2nd CPU block it is a chipset water block

Those seem pretty tall. Unless I misread your original post you have SLI. You would need a lot of clearance between the cards to fit those and the tubing. If you bend the tubing to much it will restrict the flow of liquid which will decrease the efficiency of your cooling system. Also, everything I can find regarding that particular block shows it being used with CPUs. I'm sure it could work on a GPU as well but the size may be an issue (L x W x H: 44 x 33 x 54mm, 1.75" x 1.30" x 2.1", with fittings). All the GPU blocks I have seen have the fittings coming out the side so they don't interfere with other GPUs or expansion cards. The exception would be some full coverage blocks, but the fittings are so far away from the MB that they don't really cause this problem.

i gonna use this water blocks for my 2 gtx i don't need to band the tubes, they comes with SLI fittings http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_p...

hmm... it all makes sense when I read this without my son yelling at me. Sorry for injecting my confusion there. That should drop your temps quite a bit. Good luck setting it all up.

I would get a triple rad for that setup and danger den is always good stuff...

For CPU, keep a seperate loop.

Specs:
D5 + Swiftech XT (best) or GTZ,HK,etc (if cost is a problem).

A 320/360 rad.

A few recommendations:

1. There really is no need for cooling the Northbridge unless you have a hotrunning Northbridge and/or going to OC it a lot.

2. I highly recommend you getting a Universal GPU block (ie Swiftech MCW60) and the needed MOSFET/VRAM heatsinks. This will allow you to use the GPU block with the future GPUs and different GPUs

but i gonna do 3 way SLI . and now i have 2 way sli, it is hard to band the tubes
