Is there anyone who uses that kit and if so, how does it perform and would you recommend it. Also, if you feel that there is a product/kit that my money could be better spent elsewhere, please recommend. I need tips from vets.
I'm running the AX360 D5 bay res kit kit along with an AX240 in my Corsair 540. I had to mount the fans outside, losing the filter, since there's only about 15mm clearance at the top between the two rads. And if I flip my 240 so the ports are toward the front, there's just a sliver of clearance between the two rads, but keep in mind that the AX240 is not only thick, it's a bit long (that's not what she said
But I'm happy with the radiators, they do really
well in push only, do well with low fan speeds, and they look damned nice, clean and understated, IMHO the best looking rads on the market right now. But I like understated and I'm not a fan of how fat 60mm rads look, but do like their performance, and the AX series performs on par with a lot of 60MM rads out there, and far better than most if not all 30mm units.
No complaints about the CPU block at all, it does its job better than the H100i it replaced, and that's with two overclocked/overvolted 780 Ti's in the loop as well.
And yeah, as a guy who claims to like understated, you gotta wonder why I added the red badges. It was to go with my build theme as the white lettering stood out a bit, but they badges are a bit tacky, I know.
