I've been running dual 6970's and a 1090t on a 360 rad no problem. Might be easier to add 3 more fans to the current rad instead of adding another rad and plumbing. I do like this build though nicely done!

Really depends on your overclocks and what speed you run the fans at. A 3x120mm radiator can exhaust a lot of heat out of it if you run those fans @ full speed. But if you want silence then more radiators would help.

Thanks CLshades - if I could get away with just upgrading the existing rad to a push-pull that would certainly simplify things. I would probably also upgrade the fans to PWN versions hooked into a controller to make sure that when they aren't fully needed then they aren't spinning at the fast/noisy rate.

If you get a controller make sure it supports multiple PWM fans. A lot of them only have one or 2 ports so some research will be needed. Lamptron has some good stuff from what I've seen. 60watt per channel headers which is pretty insane.

I converted from a simple push to a push pull and did notice an improvement. Lets be honest though.. unless you are controlling your ambient temperature all summer overclocking in +30 to +40 weather is out of the question... I never OC during the summer months.

Good job man, looks really good. Just a heads up. If you do plan on adding another GPU to the loop you will need an EK triple bridge (parallel or serial). You can use the one you have but you would have to put the 2nd card in the 8x slot instead of the 16x.

Thanks dRnRcR..

Yea, when I originally bought my bridge, I bought the 2 way before realizing that the second slot on the Rampage was a x8 slot. I did purchase a 3 way bridge but I guess I forgot when I did the build that I had the 2 way installed (and was calling it a 3 way).

Nice spot!

I see the thread title and think of this:

Yea, I didn't really have a good name for the project...And I guess calling it "Well, I don't have kids so I can spend dough on this" doesn't quite have the right ring to it.

"Red Rampage" was probably the least most original name I could think of, but after spending a lot of time on the build, and then all of the rest of it playing BF3 just didn't have time to come up with something.
