New radiator time just dont know what to get... - Page 2

post #11 of 13
well i just got mine yesterday, and since my build is still in the cutting and fitting stage i don't have performance numbers yet. but as far as that grill is concerned, you definitely need it for the 4 180mms fans. without it only the 4 outer most screws will fit the fans. the middle ones don't line up at all with out the grill. so yes you need it.
450
the fans are super quiet as well. smile.gif

Rethele you in Aus?

I'm in a similar situation, the 1080 is out of stock here and I don't think its coming back, so I'm picking up the 140mm version of the MO RA 3.

I'll eventually make a shroud for it out of sheet metal which should increase its cooling capacity.

The 1080 should be able to handle 3 gpus + cpu + motherboard + ram pretty well, overclocked as well, depending on your fan choice.

The current data from Germany indicates that a MORA3 with 140.18 (9x 140s on each side) beats the Phobya 1080 and 1260. However, for single-sided cooling, the Phobya 1260 with 200.4 beat out the MORA3 with 140.9 by several degrees. I think it stands to reason that if you run double sided cooling on the Phobya 1080 or the 1260, you'll have a cooling setup that's off the charts for a single radiator. The Phobya extreme rads aren't benchmarked for dual side performance since they don't ship with fans mounts on both sides, but I made my own reverse side fan mounting template easy enough (see my build log) and am running 220.8 on the Phobya 1260.

I would recommend going with a radiator that can run fans that are 180mm or larger. Airflow, power use, and noise levels should all be better than a bank of 120mm fans.
