  1. Optimum Tech did two videos, one of which he uploaded very recently, where he tested a 120mm AIO on a RTX 2080 ti and on a 3950X. I might be wrong, but to my eyes, it does not look like the components are 'suffering' (GPU at 61°C, CPU at 68°C) But you know what? Forget about the hardware, let's go back to basics: Let's say I want to watercool both my CPU and GPU, whatever brand or model. I have two 120mm radiators on hand. What installation would perform better? Having one loop with both CPU and GPU in it, and both radiators connected, resulting in a '240mm' radia
  2. With the little space I have, the only option to keep the high performance hardware cool would be watercooling. Thank you for your remarks, I will take that into consideration, although it was not exactly what I asked
  3. Hello everyone, I intend to cool a system containing a 3950X and a 2080 ti. I want to watercool both, and because of space constrains I can only fit two 120mm radiators. I COULD however connect these two to virtually create a 240mm radiator. Now I'm trying to figure out if the cooling would be better with one loop and both radiators cooling both components, or two loops, one for each component and with a 120mm rad each. What do you think? A single 240mm rad would perform better when only the cpu or only the gpu is stressed, but when both work under full load,
  4. So I'm about to upgrade my PC, with a X570 Board among other things. The build is inside a very small case with similar 'sandwich'-characteristics as the Dan Case A4, meaning the backside of the motherboard sits right next to the backside of the gpu. Right now, the 'low-tier' 500GB M.2 SSD, sitting roughly in between the two components, operates with temperatures of around 55 to 70C, which is not healthy for the drive in the long run, but it shows how difficult passive cooling is in that spot. The new mainboard has two M.2 slots, one on top of the board underneath the chipset-heats
