Greetings all,

I have a mining rig built with:

1) Coolermaster HAF 932 Case = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6811119160

2) 3x XFX Radeon HD6950 Graphics cards = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] _-14150523

mounted with,

3) 3x Swiftech HD6900 Heatsink and GPU waterblock combos = http://www.swiftech.com/hd6900-hs.aspx

4) Swiftech H20-220 Edge cooling kit = http://www.swiftech.com/h2o-220-edge.aspx


I posted this on Tom's Hardware and was recommended to get another radiator

My questions now are:

1) What parts do I need for the extra radiator, and where do I get them?

2) Why would I jump into such a complicated watercooling project being that I'm a complete noob?



Here's some pictures of the equipment and the setup, any help would be very appreciated.

FYI, all your links seem to be broken Wink

I don't know much about watercooling so I don't have a real answer to give you  Grin

Eh, some people are just in it for the fun.  Some people just haven't discovered the benefits of open-air rigs with your GPUs on raised rails as well Wink

Truthfully I was looking at a similar setup yesterday for some far off point in the future when I no longer want to mine with my 6950s.  Water cooling is the only way to keep 4 of them happy in a case, but I'm a bit put off by the prospect of needing 4 120mm radiators just for the GPUs.. the ridiculous bulk almost defeats the purpose of putting 'em in a case at all..
