New Custom Loop need help.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Never Done a custom loop but wanting to do something in white. i currently have the h100 installed into a 650d. I would like to put a 280mm radiator if possible into the top of the case from what i figured it would fit but possibly not have a lot of Room. any ideas on a build? do you get better cooling with thin radiators or thicker ones?

get x2 140mm fans and put a 280mm not too thick as the case is small and you can do a 240 at top with x2 120mm fans but put a extra 120/140mm rad in back so it can equal a 360

This is a big question. As a rule, thicker rads will dissipate more heat, but it is also largely dependent on the density of the fins and the speed (and noise) of the fans. I suggest you visit Martin or Skinee's websites and do some reading.
