this is more for keeping it as quite as poss while still cooling your components if you dont care about noise the id say f it and go with the cheaper one

This is a very basic problem. You switched from a RS type radiator to a RX type radiator. The RX has more room for water, and is designed for lower flow fans. So your fans are perfectly fine, but your pump might be struggeling due to the RXs volume and flow characteristics. The RX can flow much more water than an RS due to the size of the internal water passages.

My opinion - Remove the 240, and just run a single RX 360 Since your card is not watercooled, there is no reason to run 2 radiators like that.

Your loop should be this - RES - PUMP - CPU - RAD - RES

The goal here is to keep the loop as simple as possible so we drop the head pressure needed to drive it. While increasing flow (Decreasing restrictions). KISS is the principle here - KEEP IT SIMPLE (Stupid thumb.gif)

I run 2x RX360 at home with extremely low flow fans on an OCed 8150 and 2 280 GTXs (older cards as I waited for the 690 to drop). I never get higher temps than 48C on any of my equipment.

My Loop - RES - PUMP - NB - CPU - RAD - GPU - GPU - RAD - RES

... rad placement does not matter... but I agree a single 360 might perform better than a "slow" 600 config.

Yeah, you're looking at a flow issue for sure. You added much more restriction to your loop than you had before the change. You should look at getting a new pump.

 

In the mean time, take out the rs240. The extra tubing needed to route to it, and the extra radiator are going to hinder your performance.

This depends on the rig, and the temps your pushing.

short answer Quick fix remove the 240 as stated by PeteJM
long term keeping all rads and have room for say a gpu block new pump thumb.gif

Just a question here but did you remember to flush the flux out of the new rad? If not then you could have a clogged CPU block. Just a thought redface.gif

The consensus seems to be take out the rx 240 for now until i get a new pump. So I guess I'll go ahead and do that

I plan on getting a 7970 or a 7950 and liquid cooling it, so I'll definitely be putting it back in eventually
