Talking Options...

Hi all,

And my first post I'm in the planning stage of watercool my newly acquired comp.
Option 1:
XSPC single Reservoir> MCP655 Pump(reservoir mounted)> 360 Rad> Proc> Gfx Card.

Option 2
XSPC single Reservoir> MCP655 Pump(reservoir mounted)> 360 Rad> Proc> 120 Rad> Gfx Card> Gfx Card.


Should I just buy the 120 Rad now and put in the loop and just get the 2nd card later when I have enough money ? Or don't worry about the 2nd Rad at all?

Would I need to add another pump into the system? since pressure will drop if I added 2nd Rad to the system

I guess, another option, would be to go for dual pumps/loops but that would complicate the process.
I'm trying to keep it as simple as I can.

Please no bashing...Useful information/tips is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your help,
Kong

My System Specs

Default

Hi Kong!

Welcome to the forums!

To start off, are you referring to the computer in your Specs?

If so, is there a need for Crossfire? Do you intend to fold or is this for gaming only?

I personally would start with just a 360 rad and add at a later date. If you are going for maximum cooling, then perhaps consider a push-pull configuration? Or are you trying to keep it silent at the same time?

Hi and thank you!

If you're talking about the comp's specs on my details then yes.

I'm planning to get 2nd card to crossfire for gaming/folding. Think it's worth it?

Don't think my case can accepts the push/pull setup, too thick. I want it to be silent so no revving of fans...lol, it was annoying when benchmarking the system with 3Dmark11...sitting about 8ft away and i can hear the fan going real good
