Quick question....are two Corsair H80s going to be enough to cool a dual Intel E5-2687W setup? And how loud are we talking? Assuming I may have to change the fans. Also what temps are safe with these bad boys..have yet to look it up? Thx

I would go custom watercooling for this!

You can get a good kit and a cpu block for the same price as 2 H80's!

Thx for the response. Eesh yeah I considered it, but the last time I did custom water cooling (8 years ago) it was a big pain and not easy maintenance. I'm super hesitant to go that road again. I considered dual Noctuas but thought it may be too much weight for the board over time. You don't think the H80s could handle it?

Well H80's are only 120mm rads, you've got Xeons here.

You're looking at a 360mm rad!

Ok....If I caved and built a custom water cooling setup....would a shared 480mm rad be enough to cool these? The Lian Li PC-Z70 has two 140mm fans up top. If I take those out put a single dual 140mm rad and two Nocuta 140mm fans would I be good? Where should the pump and reservoir go? Tall case to pump from the bottom to the top and back.

I'd open a thread up in the overclocking section and see what the pro watercoolers think :p 

(Still a beginner watercooler)
