My Prodigy build is coming along (very) slowly (still ordering parts lol), and now I'm trying to decide how to go about cooling everything.
I won't know for a fact until I measure when I get the case, but it looks like I could possibly fit 2 240 rads and 1 120 in the case, but if this even fits, I'd most likely be limited to one fan per rad. Or I'm positive I could fit 3 120 rads with all but one in push-pull, possibly even all 3.
Which setup should I go for? I'll be cooling a 2600k @ 4.5ish and a 690HC, slightly OC'd. Maybe RAM too, if I decide to be silly.
high FPI rads and high RPM fans 3600RPM+ ='s lots of heat transfer low FPI rads and low RPM fans 2500RPM- not so much so you need more rads or larger rads to do the job if you want to do this with 2 240 rads you will need good ones high FPI high RPM and a fan controller for the fans other wise you may need 4 240's to cool it at clocked settings you will need all 3 for stock settings.
I appreciate the info, but you completely missed my question.
As far as fans go, most likely I'd use Corsair SP series for pushing due to the higher static pressure, and if I have room, standard white NZXT fans to pull (for looks). I don't know how you consider 2500rpm 'low', as that's generally the highest speed I see before getting into Delta fans.
exactly thay are low to mid but high is 3600+ combined with high FPI rads a couple of 240's it could cool your rig but the fans your using can't do that so go with low to mid FPI rads and 3 240 rads might handle the CPU clock but not GPU's clocked as well
Whoops, I meant pushing, my bad! And thank you, 2 240s for the whole system sounds much more reasonable. I highly doubt I'll do the RAM, it'd be more aesthetics than anything if I did, since I think a couple blocks would look very nice with everything else.
