Hi Guys
My name is kevin and i have a cooling question for modders

i am buying a Origin HTPC st21
http://bit.ly/2cWrW3H

and need a cooling system , i did some work on the Water Config on this site and need the CPU and 2 GTX titans cooled in this HTPC ,not sure how many rads i need etc
came up with this , would like some opinions on cooling for this HTPC please

CPU Block XSPC RayStorm Pro WaterBlock (Intel) Black
Single Radiator XSPC AX120 Single Fan Radiator (Black)
Reservoir XSPC D5 Photon 270 Reservoir/Pump Combo
Fittings (10x) XSPC G1/4" to 7/16" ID, 5/8" OD Compression Fitting (Black Chrome)

you are going to want over 360mm of rad space, I would say 480mm would be ideal which seems extremely unlikely in this case. Fitting that huge res/pump combo will be a real challenge too!

All of those components on one 120mm radiator will be way too much, you will either have to downclock everything and run fans at really high rpm's, even then you are going to struggle for low temperatures.

You could either downsize to itx and mod the case for more rad space or change the case completely

The design you link appears to have multiple radiators and only one gpu. Two Titans is over 500W without overclocking. With the CPU that's at least 600W.

Depending on whether you want quiet or cooling you either need a minimum of a 360 with powerful fans or more likely a 360 and a 240. If you want a small case, have you thought of using an external radiator?

woah be very careful with that rad, 64mm is mega thick, most 64 mm rad's I know of end up being external!

With a rad 64mm thick for it to do its job properly you may well need a push/pull config which will add 50mm. May I ask why 2 x titans in an htpc, is it a 4k tv, will you be gaming too?

Peters build made for an Asus demo piece at an exhibition (looking at the pics).
I'm skeptical it will cool as good as it looks.

Assuming you'd need a 480mm worth of rad (a 360 + 120 or 2 x240) thats 4 fans exhausting excluding psu, so you'd need 4 fans in. Cant see all them fans fitting.

but lol Kevin, 2x titans for a htpc ( a pi2 would suffice)
