I've just built a dual xeon CPU system( 2x E5-2687 w), But the fans are really doing my head in , too loud!!
I'm using the X9DAI supermicro with the supermicro heatsinks in a cooler-master cosmos 2 case. There's plenty of room in it for a dual liquid cooling solution, but i'm not sure as far as installation goes so a little bit help would be appreciated.
I'm thinking of having two 120 mm fans next to each other at the top or one 140 mm at the top and 140 mm at the rear. what do i need to take into consideration when i install them and which ones would be perfect for that particular set up.
I've done a fair bit of research on the matter but i'd like someone to say if whether these can be both installed in that case or not and if yes which one should i go for
2 X H80 CORSAIR or 2 X intel BXRTS2011 LC ?
I doubt you can install 2 of these closed loop coolers in a 2x120 fan location since the radiators aren't going to fit the same size of 2x 120mm fans due to the tanks on the rads. You could possibly mount them sideways but not something I'd consider doing due to the tubing orientation.
Why not just get air coolers with quiet fans? Those closed loop coolers aren't going to net you any performance and to run at their best setting, you have to have the fans set high anyway.
You can comfortably fit a 360 in the roof of the CII, its designed for such a plan in fact
and the reservoir/pump on the Xspc kits fits into two drivebay spaces, the pump is mounted inside the res, but we can design/alter the plan if and when you get to that stage
