Ok, so finally got all my normal component together and now for the cooling.

 

So... here are the bits i've seen and just need to know what will fit with what!

 

CPU block: XSPC Raystorm

RAM covers: XSPC Universal Side Plate x2

RAM block: XS-RAM-4D x2

GPU block: XS-GTX770 x2 <<< as EK dont do a full card cover will this fit a Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 WindForce 3X OC 2GB GDDR5 (GV-N770OC-2GD)?

the discription says it will fit reference design only [i dont know where i can find that information?]

Also, is a backplate required at all or is this more for show?!

 

Reservoir: XSPC Dual Split

Pumps: Laing D5 Vario x2

Tubing: Clear 1/2 ID 3/4 OD

Connectors: Black Nickel 1/2 ID 3/4 O/D x18

Radiators: Alphacool Nexxxos x2

Hi,

 

that's a splendid dual loop setup you've got planned there.

 

Your chosen graphics block will not fit your graphics card as it is non reference.

 

This is you card's pcb;

Gigabyte-GeForce-GTX-770-WindForce-3X-OC

 

and this is the Nvidia reference pcb;

Nvidia-GeForce-GTX-770-2GB-GDDR5---PCB_z

 

I haven't found a full cover block for your cards so you will probably have to go with universal blocks for the GPUs with heat sink for the RAM and VRMs. This would also require that there is a bit of airflow over the cards.

 

Personally I wouldn't bother with water cooling the RAM as the blocks tend to be very restrictive, greatly slowing the flow to the CPU for no real benefit.

 

As you say, the back plates are really just for the looks.

 

Ian.

Thanx IanF for reply about the card!

 

As for the RAM, well, its Dominator Platinum that's supplied with fans included to keep temperature down already, thus wanting water to get rid of the noisy fans and it'll be less restrictive than what it currently is.

 

If I can't get a full card block, I may eliminate a loop as it won't be needed...

tbf that'll also save about £350 straight away.

 

 

 

more importantly will the parts I've shown above all fit together? I believe they will but just wanted someone in the know to go 'YUUUUUUUPPPPPP'

 

 

 

 

Edit:

I may have to get some back plates just to pimp it a little tho :P

The rest of the parts you've listed are all good assuming your case can accommodate the very thick rad (105mm with the fans).

 

You haven't mentioned the fans you'll be using. Whatever you choose, make sure they are strong enough (high static pressure) to push enough air through through 80mm of radiator.

Those fans look ok, but you'll need a fan controller to keep them quiet.

any recommendations? the case will hold 10 12cm fans without any modifications, any that you can either

1. control all seperatly?

or

2. Have multiple fans associated with each control?

The controller I've used for the last 5 years is the M-Cubed T Balancer BigNG. It is programable so it can adjust the fans depending on temps. It has 4 fan channels that cans take 3-4 fans each, 4 analogue temp sensor inputs and a digital sensor input. Once you've got it set up you don't need to touch it again.
Mine's been using the same profile for the last 3 years.

The m-Cubed website is unavailable at the moment... are they still trading?

That's odd, I can't even find any reference to its.

 

 

The controller is still being sold though.

thanx for the info IanF,

 

for the time being I've gone for 1 loop until maybe a full GPU block is made for my GPUs.
