If I were you I would try to add a second bank of fans to that rad just for the extra headroom of overclocking, more fans = better temps!!! tongue.gif

I would seriously get another rad in here.. maube a 120 or a 140. You can also fit the phobya 200 rad in there smile.gif

Then you¨ll have more room for OC'ing and lower temps smile.gif

200mm rads actually has more surface area for cooling that a 120x360 rad. Provided that they are the same thickness though...


Also, those RX rads are optimized for slow fans. Anything above 1200rpm does nothing to help the temps. If you going to spend that kind of money on fans (Great choice BTW!), then you need to find a rad that has higher fins per inch. A Black Ice Extreme 2 is one of the most densely packed rad I have ever used and those fans would be a PERFECT choice for it.

Thanks for the replies!

Is the Apogee Drive II a capable pump? and hows the noise as I'm trying to get it silent smile.gif

Apogee Drive II is Capable. Only problems I can see you having, as said above, are the high RPM fans not making a difference & not enough Radiator surface area. Try to get another 120 or a 200 if you can in the front. It would make a world of a difference.
