WCing for performance AND acoustic benefits? (via a Rasa 750 RX240, Define R3)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm starting to become unsatisfied with my H70. When I'm OCed, I idle around 45-50 depending on ambient, and under LinX I often break mid-70s. So lately, I've been planning to replace my cooler with a Rasa kit, the 750 RX240. I wouldn't also mind picking up a couple more GT 1850s to complement it for a P/P setup. I know this setup with that rad would be quite thick, but removing the drive cage assembly should provide ample room for the horizontal space that would be required for the two front intakes.

I'm concerned, however, with the possible noise this might cause. Would running extra fans necessarily be louder? If I hooked them to a fan controller, might I be able to see good performance from the kit AND have a near-silent solution? Any input would be appreciated!

You could have an RX240 with like 1000RPM fans(if that) are get great (quiet) cooling, the RX rads are very thick with a low fin count which means that they can perform much better than other rads with slower fans.

I have a GTs running a 700RPM on my EK 360(not as good as the rx360) rad and thats holding the i7 and 580 at 69 and 46 max temps.

Since I have absolutely no frame of reference, how quiet would an RX240 + 4 Gentle Typhoon 1850s P/P with lowered RPMs sound? Hushed and effective?
