Swiftech h220x question.

Hi guys,

I'm just wondering if the Radiator of h220x will be enough for a custom loop of CPU and 2 way SLI? Do i need another radiator?

What about the pump is it powerful enough? Cause i want to buy one and it's my first time doing water cooling and stuff.

 

Thanks in advance!

 

EDIT: I did some research and it says that the h220x's rad has 13 FPI

You will need more rads. Pump should be enough.

I'm guessing the pump should be enough, but you should definitely add at least another 120mmx240mm or 140mmx280mm radiator to be on the safe side temperature-wise :)

Fast replies! Thank you guys! Any rad recommendations? And also how should my loop goes? PUMP/RES>CPU>RAD>GPUs>RAD>PUMP/RES?

should always be res>pump

you'll always want the pump to be fed by the reservoir.

Wait, I thought the h220x is a combo of res+pump+rad?

Yeah, keep that at the top of the case, sever one of the connections to the CPU block and throw a GPU block and an extra rad into the loop (no idea about brands, sorry :P ).

 

As Linus has stated, it doesn't matter what order the various loop components are in. The one golden rule for loops with a separate pum and reservoir is to have the res feed into the pump using gravity, for safety purposes - you don't need to worry about this, though :)

 

Note: when I say to keep it at the top of the case, I naturally don't mean when configuring or filling the loop :)

 

Another note: might want to look at Swiftech for the extra components - they do make the h220x... :)

Yeah, that's what i was thinking. h220x to CPU then to my SLI then rad then back to h220x if that works lol

Good to know! Now i'm more confident that i can do this alone haha!

Yeah, i know. I never planned on putting it anywhere other than at the top of the case. :)

Okay, thanks for the advice! I'm looking for 140mm rad now and i find some but still debating which ones to get lol

No a 240mm rad that thin will not be enough. My H320's rad wouldnt be enough either which is why with my anthrax build ill be expanding the H320 with a rad from a H220 that I got on sale.

Do you have any Rad in mind that you would like to recommend? Probably another 240mm rad. I might place it at the bottom of the case or in front (gotta remove the drive base though lol)

So i looked around and i got two that i like but im still debating what to get.

First is the Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full CopperDual 120mm Radiator.

Second is the XSPC EX240 Dual 120mm Low Profile Split Fin Radiator.

I need the one that is ENOUGH cause i don't plan on doing 3-way or quad SLI or something like that lol

probably just gonna OC my CPU to around 4.5GHz or more I still don't know.

No, I haven't. It's Core i5 4790K 4.5GHz and GTX 660 TI SC 3GB SLI and im thinking of upgrading my GPUs in the future of course. :)

It should be im not 100% sure how well of a job it would do. Maybe make a thread and post exactly what your using and what you plan on using to cool it and see what other think.
