post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Need 3 fans for a Black Ice GTX 360,

What's the best option out of these?

The green UV gelids are the best colour combination wise, because ill be using UV and green tubes/leds smile.gif
Performance wise they arent too different right?

I've heard that high pressure is better for rads, the Gelids have 1.925 mmAq? and the Coolermaster one has a max of about 3 mmH20 (s there a diff between aq and h20?).

With your theme and considering the performance the Gelids would be the best fit, but probably not the best fan. Best fans for that rad, you need to get into 38mm thick fan territory, meaning Panaflos or San Aces, you can't go wrong with either of them.

The slipstreams aren't good radiator fans.
Of those 3 I'd say the GELID has more potential but I'd look at getting something a little more high powered for a GTX. They're thick for their density so the air has to push a far way through those fins.
If you're set between those 3 I'd definitely recommend a push-pull set up.

What if I go for an RX360 instead of a gtx 360

Then you'd be in the right ball park. thumb.gif

You could also look at something like the SR-1 from HWLabs or the EX from XSPC
