Hey guys,
Just picked up the XSPC Dual 240mm Rad liquid cooling kit. Is a dual rad going to be large enough to support the water block on an i7 2600k and a gtx 580 with a waterblock on it?

Thanks,
Nick

What has prompted you to believe that you need a water cooled system?

You would probably need a watercooling system if you have overclocked it really and high and temperatures are scorching.

Even overclockers are going away from liquid cooled systems as stability can be achieved without the risk of needing to call a plumber.:whistle:

You could always use those pre-made watercooling rather then the full setup which i believe requires a lot of maintenance.

It will work, but that GTX580 is going to heat that loop up. Figure it will have to dissipate 400+ watts of heat worst case. The 2600K is a fairly cool chip unless you overvolt it, really overvolt it. Tech is at the point now where the best air coolers are better than 90+% of the watercoolers out there.

The only reason I would consider liquid cooling is if I was really pushing the clocks, and overvolting to push those clocks. If you are intent on liquid cooling that card, you need to research GPU plates and find one that has provisions for the VRMs as well as the GPU.

I have been eyeing this http://www.hwlabs.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=14&Itemid=11 for my 700D, but just cannot justify it.. Maybe Socket 2011 will run hot enough to justify it.............fingers crossed. (I kid).

I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)

3770K @4.5, Corsair H100, GTX780, 16gig Samsung, Obsidian 700 (yes there is a 700)

I do plan on really pushing the overclock on this with some friends, and i've already purchased the watercooler, im just wondering if i get a hydrocopper card if it's going to be able to run the whole loop alright. This isn't my first watercooled build either so i'm not completely inexperienced at it =P . Im looking up it's plates now and seeing what i can find. Thanks alot dpunisher!

If you really want to go extreme, go for a Peltier cooler. Do be careful, if you buy a pre-built system with water cooling and something breaks, the manufacturer picks up the tab for damage caused. If you install it and something goes wrong, I pretty sure the cooler's manufacturer will not cover damages.
