D5 w/ EK top + 3 x 360 rads
 
Hey guys/gal

I have the vario 655 w/ EK top and i was wondering, is there enough pressure for the D5 to push water through 3 x 360 rads for a decent temp?

I have no problem splitting my loop for CPU and GPU. But if i can go by one pump, that'll be great - if not i guess i have redundancy :biggrin: .

Specs are:

(2) XSPC 6970 WB
1 EK Supreme HF
D5 Vario + EK top
(2) swiftech 360 rad
(1) 360 rad (not sure what yet)

or

(3) swiftech 360 rad



Thanks!

I have a 355 pushing pretty much the same thing, but 2 rads. I think you would be fine, just crank the speed!

3 rads in parallel would dramatically reduce the restriction, but I doubt it would affect the performance much.

Radiators don't add that much restriction. The hd6950 blocks definitely will be the most restrictive part of your loop. But chances are the d5 will be able to handle it nicely.

Ok, thanks guy!

other question is where are palcing the rads ? internal or ex

External. Wish i could fit 2 more (360) rad inside my Corsair 800D.
