3 RADS - Which One?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Which Triple 120 mm RAD for a i5 3570 IVY Bridge Overclocked to 3.8 GHZ CPU and a Radeon HD 7950 3 GB GPU?


1. XSPC RX360 Triple 120mm Radiator Rev 2.

2. Black Ice GTX Xtreme 360 Radiator - Black

3. Alphacool NexXxoS Monsta Triple 120mm Radiator - 80mm Thick!!

And the best push/pull fans to go with that RAD?

Thanks
Bocko

I used the XSPC RX 360 Rad to cool 2 GTX 4gb 680's and a 3930k which is a chip that produces a lot of heat. My temps were always very good. I than added a 480 monsta and a mobo block and my temps are almost the same.

You could probably cool your entire system with very good temps with the RX360.

If you want to spend more you could go with the monsta, but I bet the difference will be small.

I am using Corsair High Performance SP120 fans and they have a very high static pressure. I am using them on both my monsta and rx360, in a push configuration and I have them hooked up to a fan controller and I can make them very silent. I can hear my pump over the fans.

i second the xspc rx360. top performing rad with low fpi which means you don't need high rpm fans to pair with it. you don't need the monsta, the alphacool ut60 would do just as well. alphacool rads are great performing and very versatile. but i still recommend the rx360 because its cheaper.
