Can anyone direct me to flow rate optimization? Right now its at 1.5 LPM.

Or is it a space issue.
Anyway the higher the delta the better the dissipation of a rad, and however this can run 1000W with a 20 degrees Celsius delta I don't see why one would do it.(not that I don't overload my rads but you see my point if there is room for them why would you)

help me understand.. are you saying i should have more radiators or better quality rads?

on the haf xb case there is room for 2x120mm on the front/ 1x120mm on the upper level back, and 2x80mm on the lower level back

I'm not saying either as it will run withing specs with those rads but it won't run extremely cool.
If you want it too run extremely cool I advise to take the thickest rads avaiable made from copper so that'd be 1 240mm one one 120mm one and a 160mm one.


To emphasize what I said earlier let's say the ambient temp is 20 degrees celsius constant.

Your coolant will be 30 degrees or it will be 50 degrees.

Once the 30 degrees coolant goes trough a rad the rad will absorb and dissipate some heat.
That same rad will however dissipate more heat with the 50 degrees coolant as the difference with the room temperature is greater. (however all components will run hotter the loop is able to dissipate more)

A 160mm rad included one step ahead already thumb.gif
