Hello all, my first post just need a bit of advice from the experts. I recently built an i7 rig which is currently on air. I have overclocked the 920 to 4Ghz with just 1.26v vcore, at the moment my scythe mugen is keeping the cpu at 45/75 degrees idle/load which I don't think is bad. The problem I have is the 280GTX's in sli are getting very hot, I have a Gigabyte X58-UD5 mobo and there is no gap between the cards so the top card is only getting hot air. My idea is to go water I have purchased 2 370mm x 120mm x 40 mm radiators which will be mounted outside the case(thermaltake tsunami) which is very limited to space. I am going for Waterchill Heatkiller(LT or LC which do you recommend?) and Watercool HK GPU-X2 Nvidia G200 blocksfor the cards. What I need to know is if I get a good hi flow pump will the big rads be ok on 1 loop? because there is really no space in the case for 2 pumps and all the extra plumbing that comes with dual loop.
Thanks for your time
Hello r_manic, yes will be connecting the card blocks together with a purpose built block that you can get for the heatkiller. They come in 1 or 2 or 3 slots. the 1 slot type is for mobo's with 41mm between pcie slots. going to get a ddc 18w pump and making a custom cowl for the 2 rase to mount them on the side of the case. Will have 4x120mm fans sucking air through, is there any optimap gap between rad/fan to eliminate dead spots etc?
