Magicool Rad's

post #1 of 28

Anyone had one recently? Are they any good.

Performance seems to be pretty similar to an MCR320 (which I can't find anywhere in stock in the UK) after reading this review

What you think?

There's Skinnee's review as well http://skinneelabs.com/coolgate-360/

I think Swiftech may be about to release new rads so suppliers are running down old stock.

My mistake, it's the same company but they're the higher performing, higher priced range.

I have one, its a 6x120 (essentially two 360s). It's part of their "xtreme" lineup. GPU at 950/1445 stays below 42 and cpu at 4.2/1.52v stays below 53.

I know most of that information is useless because there's nothing to compare it to... but yeah. I haven't had any problems

You have a 6x120 rad for one CPU and one GPU?! Good temps though if they are under load.

Was the finish ok, that is what everyone's main problem seems to be. Especially from a while back.

yes, temps are under load.

I have pictures of the radiator here and here.

Out of the box the finish is ok, but scratches relatively easily. I made a few scratches installing it. Nothing terrible though.

That build is loyal man! I think I might go with it. Just hope I can get decent temps.

I have one of the new Coolgate 360 rads, and can tell you that they are every bit as good as your next rad. However, the paint finish as mentioned above isn't "spot on" but no big deal really. It performs very well and I'm getting pretty much the same temps with a surprisingly similar load temps with a different setup: 980x @ 4.4ghz/1.4v and a GTX580 at 950mhz. I have two separate rads however, one being an EK Coolstream 360 and the other a Coolgate (magicool) 360 rad with 6 NoiseBlocker fans.
