Default Will my water cooling system handle the load ?

hi guys

I would like your guys input , i ordered a 5870 /EK block to add to my loop , so there will be a q9650 @ 4.0ghz a 5970 @ 1000/1350 and a 5870 @ around 1000/1350
all in the same loop with a laing 655 with a EK top and a thermalchill 120.3 and a feser one 120.1 with 4 http://ncix.com/products/index.php?s...facture=Noctua fans

do you guys think this system will handle the load ?

or should i sell the single feser one rad and get another triple rad ?

what do you guys think ?

thanks for your input

The system, as-is, will handle the load. Your temps are certainly going to be warmer than the norm, but none of them should be anywhere near their respective red-zones (although the CPU may get close, depending on how hot it runs at that speed). If you have the space and funds, this is a situation where switching in a triple rad for a single may net you a few degrees improvement under full-load (although I wouldn't expect any improvement at idle). But personally, I'd have no qualms about running your system as-is. For system setup, the important thing will be to try and give each radiator fresh air.

My System Specs

hi i'm traying to do the same with better water cooling stuff, i'm using the TT water cooling that come with the Kandalf case. It is not bad it seems to be cooling the CPU very well but want to overclock my q9550 mor than 3.8 and to keep the sysytem satble.
i am replacing the stock Radiator with a Swiftech Q320 (the only one that can fit) with my Slinex fans, the CPU water block with EK supreem HF the NB shipset and the SB shipset and bothe Moff on my P5K Premium and watercooling my GT8800 too, do i have to byu the mcp655 or the mcp355 !! both with aftermarket tpo ? thank you for your help

Not exactly the same setup but I run a core i7 860 @ 4.0 GHz with HT on and 2 5850's running off a GTX480 rad / MCP655. Linx the cpu core hits 62 C and my 5850's never go over 34C GPU 36C vram and my rad is very dusty in the fin area too. I'll clean it this weekend and the temps will be slightly better.

Personally, I would want more rad. Your cooling three GPUs and s CPU. If your temps are good, that great I just like my temps to be a little cooler than that.
