Help me pick 2x 360 Rads pls

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I have an incoming CaseLabs Magnum M10 for a new build. I am planning to run 2x 360 rads on the top. I got the extended 85mm top. I need help picking which radiators will be ideal for my setup. I will be posting a build log and some photos of the case when it arrives of course.

The way I am going to run my loop, Coolgate 360s or a Black Ice plus a Black Ice X-Flow rad will work best from a tubing & aesthetics standpoint.

AP-15s are of course 25mm so if I get a rad that is sub 35mm I can run push/pull. If I get the thicker rads I can only run in push.

What radiator configuration would you recommend? Is it better to run a thinner rad with push/pull than a different rad with just push?

I have been reading mixed things about the X-Flows and the GTS so I hope some of you more knowledgeable water coolers can steer me in the right direction.

Thanks for any help

Black Ice - these are rads are awesome. I have a 240 and 360. Highly recommend.

But which specifically? There are a number of different rads and as well, thinner rad with push/pull or a thicker rad with just push? That's what I was having real trouble finding.

I actually have a BI Xtreme 3 360 and a 240 X-Flow that keeps my setup quite cool as well. I will probably try and find those a home on this forum once I have migrated to my new case, etc. smile.gif

Thanks

You are already set on the Black Ice rads so why ask for recommendation?
XSPC EX if you decide on a thinner rad.

Well, as I said, I'm not set on any rad. Plus there are a multitude of Black Ice rads - which performs best with an AP-15?


Let me make it more clear in case my post is confusing;


What rad would be recommended for AP-15s? I have 85mm space for rad + fans.

I can get a thin rad and run push/pull or a thick rad and run strictly push.

A Coolgate or one X-Flow makes routing tubes slightly cleaner, but I am open to using any rad.

Which would be best?

Thanks

I personally would just got for Rads that work best with as lower RPM as possible. Like RX360's and say 1000RPM fans, but thats just me.
