    how are these tempe with this loop?

    Was thinking about delidding mine but I think I'm getting good temps as is. It's not like dropping my temps is gonna magically change my chip into one from a better batch

    how are these tempe with this loop?

    ok so here's what i got: CPU freq: 4.2 ghz Vcore: 1.19v I ran unigine heaven for 10 loops and had P95 blend running in the background. twin gtx 780 sli temps were about 50c per card max. with the cards at thier peak temps, the cpu got up to 76c. didn't pass that. I think that's pretty good. I was wondering if it would hit 80c

    Thanks for the feedback fellas. You know, i didn't even think of stressing my gpu's at the same time. smh. I know aida has an option to also stress the gpu's but i'm not sure it will hit them hard enough. we'll see. Boinker I'll give your suggestions as a shot. cchalo, I'll be using your numbers for comparison. Thanks
  4. Been awhile, but i finally got my wc loop going. It goes D5pump/res>4770k>RX240 rad(top mounted push/pull intake)>GTX780SLI>EX240rad (bottom mounted push exhaust)>D5pump/res. My chip is currently OC'ed to 4.2ghz at a vcore of 1.18v. Idle temps are around 35c. 100% load in IBT gives me around 68c max. How does that look to you guys?
  5. just found out that my EVGA ACX SC isnt a ref pcb and won't fit my razor waterblocks, even though the site says it is supposed to fit. So... if anyone is up for a trade or wants to buy mine for $400 (negotiable) let me know. thx guys

    New To Forums. New To Overclocking.

    i've found that although there are differences in quality of TP, they are negligible when compared to your technique when applying TP. The difference between bad and good applications is tremendous. Easily a 10c difference at least
  7. man i used to be a whiz with a metal lathe. What i wouldn't give for a lathe, milling machine, and bandsaw right now. This is amazing man. Unbelievable work
  8. Ok fellas, alot of you have been very helpful in giving your watercooling advice. I have two shopping carts at frozencpu ready to go but i can only choose one lol. Help me out. either the Raystorm EX360 kit with d5 pump, or the RX240 kit with d5 pump. This may seem redundant when you compare this to my previous post on watercooling but hear me out. I actually have a second EX360 rad on the way which i ordered early this week. The reason why i ordered it early is because the stock seemed to run out quickly and i didn't want a crossflow rad. So with that being said, my first question is, with the EX360 in the loop in push/pull, could i get away with an RX240 at the top of the case? The reason i'm thinking about the 240 is because i have a corsair 750d and with the thickness of the RX, i don't want to lose too much 5.25 bay functionality because it's also pretty long. especially since i'm gonna be using the dual bay res/pump. So, RX240 up top with additional EX360 in push/pull in the loop? It will be cooling SLI water blocked 780's, and a 4770k. Second question is, If i go with the RX240 up top, i should be able to mount the EX360 (push/pull) at the front of the case correct? hopefully we have some 750d users in here. Anyway, thanks for the help guys

    XSPC GPU waterblock backplate?

    Any experience with the xspx razer blocks? specifically the backplates? Just want to know how they stand up against the ek blocks you mentioned

    XSPC GPU waterblock backplate?

    yea they definitely look MUCH sturdier than the mesh design of the EVGA plate. I'll just get the XSPC backplates. I'm spending enough on the system already, what's another $60 right? (shrugs) lol

    help needed from watercooling pros

    yea i'm definitely going with the raystorm ex 360. w/ an additional 240mm rad in the loop. The rasa kits aren't even an option. Thx for the help fellas. much appreciated. I'll let you guys know when all the parts are in, and I'll post pics of the setup. Hopefully I'll get some thumbs up lol

    help needed from watercooling pros

    I was looking at the AX360 rad kit, but i'm not sure i'd be able to fit it comfortably in a push/pull config in my case. Its around 55mm thick i think. Well, based on yours and Waco's input, I think I'll just get this kit, and get an additional 240mm rad. It isn't that much more and i'll give myself the headroom if i wanna pursue more aggressive cpu/gpu overclocks. Thx guys Edit: yes i'm aware the amount of headroom would be negligible lol

    help needed from watercooling pros

    I'm pretty sure i don't have room for another 360. I'm rockin' an obsidian 750d so I definitely have room for a 240 on the bottom or the front. I figure that should be enough to dedicate to the SLI config. But the plain answer is "no... the setup you listed probably won't be enough to cool your system".. correct?
  14. beastineden

    Why SLI Sucks

    I can't even imagine a scenario where I would need a Quad-SLI setup... for that matter, I can't think of a scenario where I could afford two more 780's, as I'd most definitely want (need?) to upgrade my infrastructure as well. It must be a thing of beauty in the right applications though. I'd imagine the X79 multi x16 lanes would come in reeeeally handy.
  15. I need some help fellas. I've always used hydro series products since the h50 days, but I want to move into a more "proper" liquid cooling system. For my needs, a completely custom loop would be overkill (not aiming for OC records), so I'm looking at the XSPC Raystorm 750 EX360 Extreme kit on frozencpu. The calculated TDP for my system is around 600w. (a touch more as the bulk of that is CPU and GPU's obviously). I need to know if the kit listed above is good enough for reasonable cooling for a 4770k (possibly going naked within the next month if I can muster up the balls for it lol)and 2-way GTX 780 SLI. (the SLI waterblocks are on the way already ). I've seen multiple users using a dedicated 120mm rad for the GPU's but is that a must? Let me know guys. I appreciate the help.
