Rx 360 or ex 360

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
First time water cooling and I'm going to buy the complete kit but use sp 120 high performance fans. Should I get ex 360 with push pull 6 fans or rx 360 pull 3 fans? This is meant for cooling CPU plus one gpu. Will add another Gpu later on.

Curious because I was about to post the same thing. Wanted to get opinions on the XSPC kit for first timers. Most threads I've read seem to suggest it as being ok. Only difference is thickness in those radiators, right? The ex can have quieter, slower fans on it if I read that right.

If anything I would have thought the EX would need faster fans as it has a higher FPI, so if you want slower more silent fans I'd go for the RX as it'll probably dissipate more heat at lower RPM, the only downside to the RX is its thickness, there 60mm with fans in either push or pull your looking at 85mm of space needed with push/pull your at 110mm of space needed.

Also what CPU are you running? Any Overclocking planned? What GPU will you be running? Any Overclocking planned?

I have no idea what the fin density on the EX360 is, but from what I've seen, at 20 FPI, you really need 1500RPM fans to see a great benefit out of the additional fin density. The RX series is 9 FPI, so you can use just about any fan on it.

RX will be better with lower speed fans and EX (what I use) is more suited for higher rpm fans. Also RX is twice as thick. From what I've read the RX will yeild slightly better temps. Somthing like 1-3 degrees.

Edit: Here's a great round up. http://www.pureoverclock.com/Review-detail/xspc-ex360-radiator/6/
