Internal or External Radiator In HAF X - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Doesnt matter if the rad is inside or out. Its if you install the fans as pullers or pushers. Having them as pullers is more efficent than pushers. So air will be drawn from outside and then down into the case. So in simple terms, install the fans as intakes.

In those pictures they fit...

While it may not be as roomy as a 800D it is definitely capable of storing a 360mm rad with a push/pull setup internally.

You gave me examples if the rads fitting... Doesnt really help prove your point. Even though that they overlap, they both fit...

Hey! That's my computer!

But yea, use internal. Sure, it may cover some of the stuff at the top of the motherboard, but if that's a concern you can always install the rad at the top and install the fans on top in a pull configuration. I just installed 2x200mm or whatever size they are fans on the top my my HAF-X over the radiator for general air flow, plus it has 3x120 fans on the radiator directly pushing through.

I used to have external when I had an old swiftech setup about 5 years ago... It was always a pain and I was constantly worried about bumping it into stuff, and the temps weren't that much better... Not even a degree or two if you've got good case ventilation, which you do have because it's a HAF-X....

Now just get those video cards under water That's when watercooling really makes a volume and performance difference.
