Upgrade from XSPC RS240

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey there,
I currently have an RS120.2 and am looking to upgrade..I don't mind getting a full thickness rad but I just saw the EX series rads and was wondering if I should wait for those or just upgrade now. If I should upgrade to something other than the EX which rad do you suggest? I am currently cooling my CPU but hope to add my two GTX 460s(fans are way too loud for me). I have a Level 10 GT so there is room for a 120.2 rad and 2 120.1 rads. What do you think I'll need to effectively cool both the CPU and GPUs?


Thanks a lot!

120.4 is enough to cool that yes, Have you looked at the EK rads I have one they are like mid way between the RX and the RS, they aint as thick as the RS but the have a low fin count so that you have use lower RPM fans more effectively. Just make sure that you aint hot boxing your case with that rad set up.

That's what I'm worried about. I hope to have the 240 rad up top, push/pull and a 120 rad on the bottom next to the psu...is the 120 in the back enough to push the air out? Or should i make the front 200 intake an exhaust as well?

Thanks

240 rad up top > exhaust

120 rad on the bottom > intake

120 in the back > exhast

side fan intake

I think I would go for that but its more of an experimental thing really.

Awesome, so do you think I should go for the EK 120 rad on the bottom? Or something thicker as thickness is no issue for the bottom. I'll read reviews on the EK rads in the meantime and finally, what fans do you suggest?

if your in no rush it may be worth waiting for the xspc EX rad to get a few reviews as it's (according to xspc) have RX performance with RS size and low to medium fans and the RX is better then EK rads

I might end up doing that, I e-mailed XSPC and they said they'll be released in 2-3 days. Excitement is building.

I'm way too lazy to attempt that. But thanks for the suggestion
