Which 120m rad?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I don't want anything super thick, I currently have an EX240 and just looking to add on a single 120mm for CPU only loop. Being a newbie in WC'ing I'm not entirely sure what to look for in a rad and which of the below is better then the other, or if one of the below is known to be less then stellar.

Black Ice GT Stealth 120
Black Ice GT Stealth 120 X-Flow
EK CoolStream 120 XT
Koolance Single 120mm Copper High Flow
Swiftech MCR120 "Quiet Power"
XSPC EX120 Single 120mm Low Profile Split Fin

Essentially, if the rad is thicker, it has mroe surface area, and therefor can dissipate heat more per unit of time. That, or you can use lower speed fans, and reduce the noise thumb.gif

Swiftech for low speed fans (1000-) and GT Stealth for high speed fans (1800+) , EX 120 for medium speed fans.
