Best place for Rad. on P180B??? - Page 5

post #41 of 49
I think I might get it with the radiator already installed, I will only have 1x300GB MaXtor MaXLine III HDD and it comes with nice fans plus it's professinally installed and it doesn't mess with any components in the system.

Thanks! soloz

for that X-FLow Black Ice Pro II I'd go with at least 70cfm fans. Its just about the same rad as mine other than the X-flow and 100cfm is working pretty good for me. But they roar through that rad and they are strong enough to suck my sid pannel when I open and close the case while running. Its about 43dba...

also these aerocool fans are respectable.. they kinda look odd, but they really do put out at least 75cfm with almost no noise.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835129245

I used one to replace my crap 25cfm intake fan and it made a diffrence

I don't know about water cooling, honestly. If I was going to get it I'd have to have the radiator installed, get high dBA fans, and still have the possible of a leak.
One part of me wants it, the other doesn't.

its a risk, but I think its worth it.. also it depends on how you have yours setup, get a smaller rad, and lower cfm fans, they work about the same, and sense you only have your CPU in your loops that should be fine.

its really not that hard..

and you really don't need super high cfm/dba fans. we just like them because we want to squeeze the most out of our loop and OC. WC is good for 3 things depending on what your looking for.

1.cooler than air cooling.
2. quietness if using 120mm low rpm fans. You achieve same temps as air only silently.
Edit: there are also passive rads out there that are completely silent/no fans.


3. looks really cool.


as far as leaks you can use fluid Xp+. Its none-conductive kind of like mineral oil. I've heard many stories of spills while the pc is running and nothing happens. It has the same thermal transfer as water. Only down side is it will fill your loop for about 20 bucks so its kinda expensive.

agreed. Never thought I'd do it, but after seeing the results first hand, I dub myself an idiot for not partaking in such an adventure sooner. So, don't be an idiot, go for it.

Here is a pic of a mounted rad...its not that hard. Just a littl "Nip/Tuck" with the dremmel, and your off and running. Ohh...I have never had any part of my loops, leak except for at the resevoir. Always leak test w/ another PSU or jumper your own, that way no electrical current is in your case while you let it 'marinate' and chuff all the air out.

When I add my second Rad, Im going to put it at the bottom of the case sucking air from the outside in, as this will help better my temps over the current radiatior I have on top of my PSU.Attachment 36656

Even w/ my rad not getting a 'fresh' air supply, I am still able to idle around 36c, but the 100cfm ebmpapst blowers help that.

Well, for a silent rig 2x35dBA fans + water pump is a lot louder than 3x8.7dBA fans and a TT BT. That's really what's spliting my mind, I really want a silent rig and I'm doing everything (Silent Fans, Rubber Silencer, Sound Dampener Material, Rubber Grommets, etc.) to make it silent and I don't want two FM121-B's running to cool my radiator and kill the silence.
