Looking for advice with water cooling parts :) - Page 2

Performance PCs carries Primochill white tubing. Here is a link to the 1/2in ID 3/4in OD but they carry more sizes. PrimoFLEX Pro LRT

As for the radiators, I am by no means an expert since I have just built my first watercooled rig but I do like my XSPC EX360. XSPC EX360

Thanks for the reply smile.gif

Thanks for the links, however I live in the UK but have found the tubing you linked thank you smile.gif
I'm a little confused on the radiators at the moment, I too was looking at the XSPC EX360 x2 and I read they were great for low speed fans.
However after reading through Triple Radiator (360) Roundup from previous posts the review shows otherwise.
Am I reading the review incorrectly or is it true that it actually is more effective with higher speeds?

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=WC-085-XS&groupid=962&catid=1523&subcat=1526 this is the shop I am looking at currently for this specific radiator.
I am after 2 good performing radiators than will run well with lower fan speeds.
Thanks Dave.

Pretty much ALL radiators are more effective at higher speeds than lower speeds, some more than others, but the EX360 still performs well with what most brands sell as low speed (~1000-1200 rpm) and only starts to fall below average once you drop below that. 1000rpm fans are still quite quiet, but if you're looking to run some 600rpm near silent setup, you should probably consider the RX360's instead. I wish that review would show some high-rpm fans for comparison, as nothing listed there really qualifies as high-rpm.

Thank you once again Bakageta smile.gif
That cleared up my issues/fears and these radiators are perfect for my build in that case!
Now to find the required fans! the research continues biggrin.gif Thankfully there is a great community here who's brains I can pick devil-smiley-019.gif

Gentle Typhoons are a staple, but they're certainly not cheap, and not something I've ever justified the price on. Yate Loons are another staple on the other end of the price spectrum, absolutely dirt cheap, but because of their bearing they don't last all that long if you're blowing air up with them. Yate Loon Mediums are great if you're trying to keep a budget in check, they move a reasonable amount of air while still being what most people would consider quiet.

Another option is to go with 38mm fans if you have room, and either use a fan controller to turn them down to a speed you're happy with, or find some low-rpm ones. Personally, I'm a huge fan of the San Ace H1011s, their static pressure really can't be beat and they undervolt fairly well if they're just too loud for you. You can find a video here that shows them at different volts, and the same guy has multiple videos posted of other fans, so you can find one you own to compare to.

Currently looking a the Gentle Typhoons, I see many reviews that they perform well.
With my build theme I am unsure wether to go for something like these or something with led's atm.... decisions ugh!
Thanks again Bakageta smile.gif

Those San Ace H1011's, at the beginning of that video, do you hear that ~"static buzz coil" kinda sound? I'm looking to get some new fans. If you are able to pick up that sound on the video, do you notice it when it's in use in a computer? I have GT's now, and the GT video doesn't give that sound.

I got a headache when I listened to it even if it was for a short while. And for me to order them is quite expensive since I have to order them overseas.

The San Ace does have some motor noise, if you've already got Gentle Typhoons you can compare to this video, adjust your speakers to match the sound of your current fans and compare away. I don't undervolt them, but it's not something I notice at high speeds, if you're looking to run them pretty slow then it would probably drive you crazy. Compare them at 7v vs the GT's at 12v and you'll see they move more air through a radiator at roughly the same volume, but with a deeper tone. I don't notice the motor noise at this speed.

My bed aren't that far from the computer, so this is why I'm asking smile.gif

I might buy these for my folding rig, because summer is coming, and it only has a 240 rad for the cpu. Though I might have to make a shroud, because of the large hub size.

I love your avatar bakageta, it makes me feel so cheerful smile.gif
