post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Now i have wrecked my RX480 (stupid i know ..) By screwing in too long screws in the fan holes .. Now its leaking all over the place .. I have bought that phobya rad instead, but i cant find any reviews? Is it a bad choice ? cool.gif

Appreciate it

phobya rads are very good, specialy with 1.2 rev. temp performace is same as xspc rx radiators, but it has noticeably lower flow. not that it will kill your flow in the loop, but its something bit more then measurement error. however there is a second thing that is worth to mention. quality. its far from the xspc rx, but you will not see totaly wrecked rad in the box smile.gif or even not damaged at all. just a lack of QC. its the price to pay for the lower price wink.gif

Will it hurt my system performance ? I guess it isnt such a big problem, since it shouldnt impact my flow as much as my motherboard block for an example smile.gif is it a problem ? I have 3x ek 4.0 ddc pumps in 1 loop.

3 pumps? Whatever for?

lol, with 3 of those pumps all that i said is totaly irrelevant. i dont remember the numbers, but rx are the radiators with one of the biggest flows, phobya got like ~10% lower. no need to worry wink.gif

I've already ordered the rad through aquatuning.us and it should arrive sometime next week. There are links in aquatuning website for reviews on the Phobya G-changer. It consistently ranked No.1 or at least in top ranking.

Yea but will i loose performance compared to the other radiators ? I dont want to loose flow smile.gif How about thermal performance? Will my temps be worse than with the rx480 ?

And yea about the 3x pumps .. i just had them laying around, so i thought i might aswell use them smile.gif I like how they suck the coolant out so quickly when filling the resevoir lol cool.gif

And yea i dont know how the **** those screws ruined the fins .. It sucks ! I hadnt noticed, so i put my loop in my pc and started filling .. suddenly the coolant went everywhere, and shorted out my psu .. Luckily i hadnt powered on the rest of the system !! Is there a chance that my pumps have died, due to the psu shorting ? confused.gif
