Water Cooling Just CPU ?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if I just Cool my CPU which is what I want to do and have no intension of cooling my graphics card would it be batter to go for a 360mm Radiator but the thinner one ? what I mean is I was looking at the Black Ice GT Xtreme 360mm which is alot thicker like 55.7mm while they do have a thinner one like the xspc have a RS360 thinner and RX360 thicker and if I go for a thinner one should I go for xspc or Black Ice one. ? What is the real differance between thick and thin one I understand cpu will be a bit more cooler with a thicker one but how cool ? because with a thinner one I can do a push/pull config easily but with thicker one due to space in my Haf X case it's either Push or either Pull.

I would go with 240 RAD for CPU only..

Good luck with your decision...

You will get different answers depending on what the owner wishes. I got a RX360 for my Core i7 920. I overclock it aggressively but wanted it quiet so I used 1200 rpm Scythe S-flex fans. One could get by with a RX240 and faster fans but I like it quiet so got the bigger rad. The higher density fins usually need faster fans (higher rpm) to get the most out of the radiator. Lesser density fins will usually allow slower fans but the testing is where you really find out what the rad does. Here is some good reading that will help. http://skinneelabs.com/radiators/. Good luck.
