Going Water; Which 240 Rad?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I've recently fell into some water cooling components, so I'm going for a CPU only loop. So far I have..

This reservoir/pump:

This CPU block:
http://koolance.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=978

It'll all be going in to a 600t that I'll be purchasing in the future, so I'm limited to a 240mm radiator. Which of these two are a better buy?

http://www.svc.com/rad-3120.html

or

http://www.svc.com/rs240.html

I have a sufficient amount of compression fittings, so that isn't a concern, and I'd like to stay under $50.


Oh, and I also need tubing. What's the best solid white 3/8" ID tubing I can get?

Thanks! smile.gif

Its a matter what you want your computer to be. Do you want it to be silent or do you want the best temps at the cost of added noise?

I'm looking for the best rad to pair with a set of Gentle Typhoon's (1850rpm); push, no pull.

Get this one, same one I got.

The biggest rad you can fit on top of of the 650D/600T is the Black Ice Xtreme II, but it requires high RPM fans like all other Black Ice rads. Your going to be using Gentle Typhoons therefore they work best with low FPI rads. The EX series performs on par with the RX series rads from XSPC & its half the size. It won't interfere with your motherboard heatsinks or your ram.

You can get an RX 240, but your not going to be able to mount it on the fan holes on top of the case. Your going to have to mount it off-center on the mesh closer to the side panel & it looks ugly.

AP-15's work great with the EX rads, the 1850rpm + high static pressure work great with the double fins the rad has.

Also I would recommend the 370 over the 360 as its only a few dollars more, but reviews show a significant drop in temps.

I currently have the 360 and love it, and the build quality is nice.
