Hey, when the 4090 comes out, i am going to be upgrading to it and basicly restarting a new pc build. I am going to do hard line frosted corsair tube, and it will be my first hardline build although not my first pc build. I am also going to run the ryzen 7950x on the same loop. Should i use 3 rads? as my case will support it well. (Corsair 5000D airflow) What do yall think? the would all be 360mm.
You doing a distro plate/pump/reservoir too?
At least two would be a good idea for sure, the rule of thumb I use is 120mm per 100w. A third will give you plenty of headroom.
A 5000D fits a pair of 360 radiators no problem. You can also tuck a single 120 in the rear although this is of marginal use. If you are using hardline and a distro plate, that takes the place of where the third radiator would go.
I have a pair of 360 in mine, cooling a 5950X and 6800XT. No problem. The 4090 is probably a bit hotter but should still be OK. The 5000D moves a LOT of air through.
