Recommend me a Radiator.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm currently in a CPU only loop, and I have everything ready except for a rad. Can anyone suggest me a slim 240 RAD which will suit my needs?

Thanks in advance. thumb.gif

I suggest XSPC RS240 with a thickness of 35.5mm. I am not sure if this is thin enough for you.

With 25mm fans to do push (or pull), the total thickness becomes 25 + 35.5 =~ 61mm.

I imagine this rad-fan will go to the ceiling of your HAF922. So, use this thickness to check for clearance.

Remember with those XSPC RX series radiators are like 8 FPI, so you do not need powerful fans at all. I like the Swiftech extreme series because they are thinner, 20FPI, so I just run fans around 1500-1800 RPM. For 8 FPI rads you need maybe 1000-1200 RPM fans, don't go overboard.
