HK 3.0 LT VS Koolance CPU 360

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
just wondering which one will perform better or which one will be more reliable/has had less problems.

Will be using a pmp400+xspc pump top on a xspc rx360 + high speed yates in P/P.

Not sure if i will be going with SB/IB or BD for now, so if i get the HK i will have to get the 1156 mounting back plate. so price works out to be about the same.

I belive the Koolance has wider spacing for fittings.

Watercool's various trim levels confuse the crap out of me. It doesn't help that most tests are of the regular version which is also the best.

I don't have personal experience with either, but I know that the Koolance CPU-370 can't fit straight 1/2"ID 3/4"OD compression fittings. I am not sure about the 3.0 and the 360.

Other than that, I would go with either.

Great!

Nickel flaking and BS is precisely the reason im staring away from EK, ive been reading Wermads thread from day 1 and theres no way im running the risk.

I feel as thought things will be alot easier with contacting the company if anything were to happen also. (i dont speak german )

Unless any one can swing me, the KL 360 it is

Well,
I like my Koolance 370 very much. I bought it because I stupidly dropped my EK Full Copper and there is now a large scratch on it. I wanted it too.
Load temps with F@H peaks @ ~40C
Idle is ~25-30C

haha bummer that would suck.

Looking at those results from skinkee, its probably just worth going with the LC odly enough, 1-2 C isnt to much difference.
