It's funny because I asked the exact same question to Martin about the same two rads just a few days ago:

Hi Martin,
given your experience with fans and rads, I would imagine that your answer to my question is probably the best guesstimate to be found out there.

Imagine two rad set-ups both using GT-2150′s slowed down to around 800 RPM:

- First rad is the Alphacool UT60 with one set of fans in either push or pull, but not both.

- Second rad is the Alphacool XT45 with fans in push/pull.

Which one, given the same fan speed, do you think is going to perform better?

I would have liked to ask you that on your push/pull test page but that appears to be gone.

And here is what he replied:

The XT45 and UT60 are almost identical in performance with a single set of fan in pull at 800:

So without a doubt the XT45 with push+pull will have the advantage. Pretty much any slim radiator in push plus pull will perform better than a more thick radiator with just one set of fans.

Push + Pull is king..smile.gif
