rad and fan combo for a little peace and quiet

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
just put all my junk in a new 800d. all in all i'm pretty happy but my temps are a little high unless i crank up the fans. rs360 and cm r4's work well but a little too noisy for my taste. any suggestions for a quiet 360 rad/fan combo?

Gah, you have a thin rad. Death to all thin rads!!! I'm using a nice, thick EK rad and there's not a degree of temp difference between low and high setting on my Antec Tri-Cool fans so I just keep em on low and it's nice n quiet.

Gah, you have a thin rad also!

Get the airplex Modularity rads. Those are thick rads, no more of these 54mm rads!!! =P

P.S. Sorry for the thread hi-jack. I just hate people who complain on others hardware without offering sound advice or solutions.

P.S.S. Do you have the rad in push/pull?!

P.S.S.S. Are you willing to add more rads?

its all good, i've had this rad for a year and a half and am looking at upgrading. right now the r4's are pushing by themselves. right now i dont see the need for an extra rad. all things considered my temps are not that bad, i just want a little more quiet while keeping my temps down. i absolutely hate listening to fans, why i stepped into watercooling in the first place. i'm giving the coolgate radiator a hard look and i'm not sure on what fans would suit me well

Coolgates are really good radiators. Their 120 is quite good (especially in push-pull) and so I can only imagine what their 360 is like.

Seriously, try a push pull with the rad, you'll be able to lower the speed of the fans and keep the same relative temps.

Other than that, add a small extra rad as the poster above said.

Best fans out there for noisy are Gentle Typhoons or Yate Loons. good luck finding GTs though.

Noise blockers work also. As for GT'S, look into aquatuning.us, I think they still have some in stock.

well the fed ex dude showed up with my coolgate 360 yesterday. i decided to wait on fans and i suppose i'm happy that i did. my temps are a few degrees cooler than they were with the rs, and i don't need my fans screaming at me anymore. i think i'll end up ordering some better fans that have a comparable spec to the r4's

NoiseBlocker Pro or Multiframes... you won't be disappointed! The GT's are better than a lot of fans, but if noise is you #1 concern the NB fans take the #1 spot without a doubt. This is coming from someone who's purchased over $5-600 in fans over the last while (a lot of them being GentleTyphoons which I now only use 2 of as vertical case fans).
