Hi, i would like to know if i can cool my cpu: 3570k and still overclock
And cool a gpu:570 on stock using a single 360 58.5 mm thick, and still get good coolig perfomance or should i add a 240 to the loop?, thank you for the help
ok so you are looking at thick rads, that is a good choice if you do not want a lot of rads on the loop. what is the FPI of the rad and the type of fans you plan on using also what configuration will the fans be in? you may need a fan controller for them.
that rad is designed for low rpm fans like to ones you have chosen I would consider the 240 added to the system as well ( with high FPI rads and high RPM fans the heat that one rad can remove is allot) but with this setup it will not remove as much. it is still a good setup, it is just that it does require more rads to do the same job. I use the same type of setup as well to keep the system quite.
It depends on clocks and voltage needed. Even if your CPU and GPU both end up with an overclocked TDP of 200w each, you still have head room...even if both are 250w.
It really will come down to what fans you want to use on the rad and what pump you will be running. I almost always consider a 10C delta-T when offering suggestions as that is pretty common and budget friendly. This entails a 1.0-1.5gpm flow rate and around 1500-1800rpm fans over that rad. So, with slower fans, you might be dissipating 475-525 watts (I'd have to look at Skinnee's graph for fan speed at 10C delta).
ok so i will be using a 1650 rpm fan speed and the d5 pump that comes with the kit so i should be fine unless im looking for quiet?
lol the image size
Well i think i will add the 240 to the loop anyways its not like it could hurt right?
One more question, ok so if i just pull air into the radiator as in the fans will be on top of the radiator, would it make a difference if they were on bottom for the XSPC RX360 as i will be using Yate loons 1650 rpm fans
well it is not as if they won't work or anything it is simply that the increased performance that you get by using them makes it worth the cost but I would look for cheaper alternatives to the links they are merely a reference to go by
think about it this way how wide is the case how wide is the rad if you move the rad to the edge of the case leaving only enough room for the side panel than you should have about 2 inches between the rad and the back plate so 1 1/2 inches from the mother board I do not think that the MOBO components stand off the board more than 1 1/2 inches so you should be fine.
