Dual socket H105 possible?

Recommended Posts

Building a system for a client, dual socket 2011-3/R3 supermicro X10-dax mother board. They're set on water cooling, so I was looking at a pair of H105's, and the 750D airflow case.

 

Is this feasible? And if so, what would be the best radiator placement? (top, front, bottom, as intake/exhaust, etc)

 

If this isn't feasible, either with the H105's or the 750D, does anyone have suggestions on what would be?

Looking at the tech specs in http://www.corsair.com/en-gb/obsidian-series-750d-full-tower-atx-case 2 x 280mm should fit, I suspect you would need to use top + front.

 

I would use 2 x H110i as they can be monitored by software (AIDA64+HWiNFO+SIV) so it's easier/possible to know they are working as they should, see http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=167653 for what happens then an unmonitored cooler has issues.

 

You don't need to use software to control them, but could if you wished to.

 

I would recommend you forget about CL4 as it can't correctly report more than 32 CPUs, see http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?p=902054 + http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=165091.

Thanks!

 

I know they'll fit the case-- but do you know if the tubing is long enough to reach both CPU's from the top/front? I'm assuming so, but I can't find the length anywhere to check.

 

I'm guessing top as exhaust, and front as intake, btw? or should they both be intake?

The tubes are about 420mm long and the CoolIT H110i tubes are more flexible that the ones on Asetek coolers.

 

I would start with top exhaust + front intake, stress the system and check the temperatures. I don't recall any posts about what others use on Dual Xeon systems, but this is set setup most use for a CPU + GPU with the GPU being front intake.

 

I suspect you would get better/more feedback if you specified more of the system specification, especially the GPUs you plan to install.

Thank you so much for the info! When I posted this I was still refining the hardware, but I think I've got it pretty much finalized:

 

MSI GeForce GTX 1070 GAMING X 8GB

SUPERMICRO MBDX10DAXO Dual LGA 2011-3

2x Intel Xeon E5-2620 V4 2.1 GHz 85W Processor

Kingston 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR4-2133 ECC RAM

Corsair AXi Series AX860i Digital 860W 80 PLUS PLATINUM PSU

CorsairObsidian Series 750D Airflow Case

2x Corsair Hydro Series H110i Extreme Liquid CPU Coolers

Corsair Gaming K70 LUX RGB Mechanical keyboard (might as well upgrade that too!)

Samsung 860 PRO 500GB m.2 NVMe SSD

 

Client winced a little at the price, but is *extremely* pleased with the specs-- and from what I read up on the 110i's, I think they'l, be far happier with those, than if i'd used the 105's :)

With 2 x E5-2620 V4 the H110is are way more than enough and I suspect the radiator fans will hardly ever need to speed up. You should make sure the H110i pumps are running in quiet mode which should be around 2350 RPM.

 

I was half expecting 2 x E5-2699A v4 which are 145 Watts and cost $4938.00 each :eek:.

I can't comprehend why anything is priced that high, besides "because we can" :/ they almost decided on the 2630's, but $400 more for just 4 cores more, just isn't worth it. (And neither is a single 2650, especially when only one cpu means half the pci-e slots are disabled!)

 

Thanks a lot for the info, it's helped immensely!
