2x240 rads keep my Vega 64+5600x rig cool and quiet, no more air cooling in my PC. Also, since it is under the desk, it heats up there nicely for winter, and I can change the coolant every 2 years since it never sees the sun light (thus zero algae inside the loop).
Just make sure that you check for corrosion and yeah, you should be fine.

As I have clear blocks (and full copper, as are rads) I check every month if I see some crap between the microfins. Seems fine, for now. Finger crossed, as I’m going to do the big maintenance (full teardown+cleaning of blocks and rads and new tubings and coolant) when I’ll change the GPU.

I'm using a MO RA3 Pro 420 external rad with 9 140mm xspc fans on a fan controller.

For users who don't want to fool around building their own external system this is not a bad deal.

Yeah, see, I know that I'm WAY too lazy to do that. :laughing:

IIRC the Mo Ra3 also has the ”feet” to keep it vertical, right? If that’s so, zero need of this Byksi behemoth!

I remember when I build my fist PC with my own money, a AMD k6-2 500 with a Voodoo Banshee.
Cpu was 20W and Vga was 15W. I was coming from a 486 with no cooler and it come like a shock to me to know I had to buy a cooler for K6.

In this trend continue we will reach 2KW per CPU and 5KW per GPU pretty soon.
Damn 6.8KW@380V was the power required for an IBM mainframe many years ago when I was at my first job.
The first computer I ever built instead of bought when I was 16 was a k6-2! I loved that thing. Overclocking with jumpers!
