Default Do I need two rads

I plan on installing a single 420 rad in my case. I have a i9 10900x that I mildly overclock, and a ROG Strix 2080TI OC.

I have 3 - 140mm fans on top, Which is where I plan on installing the 420 rad and 3 - 140mm fans in the front. As well as 2 - 120mm fans in the rear. All are corsair LL series fans. Do I need a second rad for this? And if so, do you think a 280 would be ok to add with the 420?

Thank you for any advice.

Apparently I missed hitting the w for two. My apologies.

I do have another question. I am currently using the H115i RGB PLATINUM 280mm, and am going to remove the fans for use on one of the new rads, and buying another fan. However, the fans that come with the H115i platinum spin are rated for up to 2000 rpm. The ML140 PRO RGB LED 140MM PWM Premium Magnetic Levitation Fan is only rated for 1200. Are these two different model fans? I really don't want to have to buy 3 more fans. Please don't think I am cheap. This add on is getting really expensive for me. I'd just like to have the exact same third fan as the other 2. So it's easier to control the speed of all three equally.

You can run dissimilar fans on the same rad as long as they are not opposing each other in a push pull and that you do not have share a PWM splitter if used.

I like match my fans when used along the same intake/exhaust area or rad, but its not required.

It is an OEM replacement part and likely only available through Corsair -- other than in the ML140-RGB form, but that is changing the game a bit. Regardless, you could compare the ML140 OEM part cost + shipping to picking up a retail ML140 RGB and not connecting the RGB wire if you just wanted 1 more.

An ML140 blade is the same, no matter which motor they pack in with it. If you tell the ML140 Pro to run at 1200 rpm, it will move the same amount of air as any other ML140 variant at 1200 rpm. If this is about matching colors, there is a grey "twin pack" of ML140s that is cost effective and without further adornment.

This sells for less at most retailers.

I have another question if you don't mind. As I stated I am buying 2 - 420 rads. In my obsidian 1000D I removed the front 120mm fan support slider and got a 140fan support like the top. I plan on mounting the rad in the front with the connections at the top. I have seen this done before. I am going to assume this can cause drain issues. With that being said, do you ever fully drain the system? It seems to me when changing fluid you would for the most part be flushing the system and refilling.

Am I all wet in my assumption here?

FWIW, the rad mounted on the top of the case it's connections will face the back. I know I'll end up with a long run to link the two rads, but that's fine I think. My idea for order is such:

Pump
GPU
CPU
RAD1
RAD2
Back to pump.

Thank you for any advice you have.

AS far as the fans go. I decided to not use the fans from my H115i. I am just going to buy a few more LL 140mm series fans. This is the 30mm rad, so I think these fans should be able to push air through them ok. In for a penny, in for a pound I guess. lol

Big Grin Building something similar

Howdy,

I am on the same Discord server that Zotty mentioned. I have a 1000d that is 3x140mm with 420mm rad in front, 3x140mm and 280mm rad up top, and 2x120mm and 240mm rad in back. I will be adding an ITX system soon and I will be switching out to 2x420mm rad for the main system and 1 240mm rad for the ITX. I went with the 140mm fans because it is a little less crazy than the all 120mm builds, and bigger fans spin a little slower and quieter for me. You can hit me up here or on the discord.

Nice to see another 140mm 1000d out there.

Is it ok to put the drain ball valve on an inlet port? I see the previous person did that.

That's really nice man. I highly doubt mine will look that darn good. But i am going to do my best. I fly rc helicopters, so I know something about patience, as the aren't easy to fly. But I am really excited about this.

Thank you so much. Your build looks great too. It is so nice to see how others are doing things. I have spent the last few days watching videos and reading up on bending the acrylic tubing. I went with 14mm OD pipe as I thought the extra thickness might be best for a new guy like myself. But it does figure that it will take a bit longer to heat to bend. But as I stated before. I have patience.
