    Question Is a XSPC X20 720 enough for cpu +gpu block?

    Too me that XSPC thing is pretty convenient, yeah not super effective but I'm only cooling a cpu and 5850 (those don't get hot) I'm not doing for better temps, but more convenience/ease. It's not like that pump/res combo will make my 29C idle GPU temp go to something very high.

    Can the XSPC thing accept compression fittings? If so then that's great. And can't I just put a new TIM heat sink on the NB and the other chip?

    I'm not too well versed on this, but Deton knows his WC.

    He can def. answer all this for you.

    What's your setup ?

    Welcome to PureOC Z!

    If you have read our own review on X20 750 then here it is.
    http://www.pureoverclock.com/review.php?id=889

    You're already have the best pump there is and if you switch over X20 750 then it's more like side stepping for the convenient.

    To answer you question, yes it's capable to providing good flow for a CPU & GPU block. It has standard G1/4" threaded ports, you will have no problem with compression fittings.

    I understand you don't like the pump sitting beside the graphic card and you might have a hard time to fit it at the bottom compartment. Take a look at this thread, people have the same 800D case as your.

    I do realize it's a downgrade for convenience but that's what I want it for, convenience

    It won't really affect me right? like it might only raise temps by a little? As long as I can keep my OC.

    i7 920 D0 @ 4GHz
    5850 @ 1GHz gpu /1250MHz Vram

    Edit:

    Also, is the pump/res combo louder or less loud than the 655? I believe the review said to use rubber washers or something. Can it nativly fit into the 800D? Or does it require modding?

    you'll be fine with two blocks and that res is designed to fit into two 5.25 bays, you don't have to mod it. The pump is pretty quite, if you hear it humming then you can use a thin rubber washers to damper the sound. I tested it on loose on the desk top then you can hear the pump put as soon I put a cloth or rubber under the res then the sound will go away.

    If he gets the XSPC res I got he would have to mod the case its a real pain to fit it in Denton a real bloody pain.

    also the screws don't match up so you have to compress fit it or drill some holes your self.

    I will be getting a new res soon and reworking my whole setup due to this fact.

    Gonna get 2 5.25 res and upgrade the pump to A out side one.

    Trust me don't get the duel bay XSPC res for the 800D it just don't fit.

    EDIT: seems you might have already bought it if so send it back don't open it because I wish now I had not put mine in tbh.
