I have a corsair 800d case.
cpu- 2600k 4.2 ghz at 1.288 volt
gpu- gtx 580 overclocked



I have one XSPC 360mm slim radator on the inside top of the corsair 800d allready. I want to add a 360mm rad to the back of the case using koolance rad mount braket.

What I need to know is is the heatkiller block for the gtx 580 good or not? If not please post what block I should get my gtx 580 is a ref card.

What 360mm rad should i get for the back i would prefer one that can take lower fan speeds and still cool well.

What pump/res should i get i have a 750lph xspc res/pump currently.


All of the items need to come off of frozencpu please if you need more info let me know what you need.

I had a similar setup before... can only recommend the EK XT coolstream 360 Rad, excellent for low RPM fans (mine were 1200RPM)

Nothing wrong with the heatkiller block, or the aquagrafx or EK blocks, they all seem to be within a few degree's of each other.

This would be my choice: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/7272/ex-pmp-63/XSPC_L...

They didn't seem to have the DDC + Ultra with that res in a combo deal, but go for the Ultra. Very good pressure

Easy as Pie, inlet at the top of the res, outlet on the pump (at the bottom) Should come pre-assembled if you buy a combo deal, if not its extremely easy to assemble (comes with instructions).

You'll need to use atleast one 45 degree angle... On mine I have one 45 and one normal (straight, the straight is a EK fitting and the 45 is a bitspower)....

So all you did was use 45's on the back rad into the case? Also I though danger den products were good are they? I really want to go cheaper since the reason why i am replacing all this was because i had a alumin rad in my old loop my koolance gtx 580 block is wreaked so is my xspc block lol!

No, On the back rad is a 90 Degree and one 45 Degree,

See the 90 Degree is attached to the Rad and the 45 Degree screws into the 90.

I'm sure there are cheaper alternatives, Bitspower fittings are expensive, but they are very high quality.

Can't say I've ever owned anything DangerDen, although I've heard good things about them.

Shame there's no heatkiller 3.0 in that test, would have liked to have seen it against the Koolance CPU - 370.

Best Rads for 800rpm is the XSPC RX...and 900+ rpms is the Black Ice SR1 they did test on all best good Quad Radiators these two came on top. I really like the Bitspower D5 Dual res with any D5 pump speed controler they get the best performance...
