Externally Mount the RX360 or RS 360 ?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys working on my new build, I currently have a haf x with a RS 360 mounted at the top in push pull. I just got my hands on a RX 360 and i'm considering mounting it with a radbox externally on the rear of my case. My question is which Rad do you think will benefit more from being external the RX or the RS. I have 6 GT AP 14's for the RX and i'm considering 6 AP 15's for the RS all in push/pull. BTW i'm only cooling a 2600k and a GTX 580 considering another GTX 580 when prices drop, that is the reason for adding another RAD. Also If i'm mounting the the RAD externally should I have the fill ports at the top or the bottom. ? I have heard having them at the top helps for bleeding. any info on this would be great thanks guys.

I would get the RX, especially if you want to use AP-15's. I would mount it on the back with the fill ports at the top.

Do it like mine you can tip it over so the ports are up and is a lot easier to bleed

Yeah I'm going to use the RX for sure, I'm going to use both the Rad's, what i'm trying to figure out is if there is any benefit or mounting the RX externally over the RS externally or vice-verse. I know the RS performs better with higher RPM fans, will mounting it externally allow for more air to move through the RAD ? I was thinking the RX at the top and the RS externally..

Doug thanks, that looks pretty clean.. what did you use to mount rad to the top of the chassis ? Also is that carbon fiber around the top rad ?
