Help me find a good 240mm radiator

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey I´m looking for a good 240mm radiator, here is what I found so far:

XSPC Xtreme Radiator RX240 - 240mm 90€

Phobya G-Changer 240 V.2 Radiator, Full Copper, G1/4, 2x120mm 60€

Aqua-Computer Airplex PRO 240 Radiator 40€


Which of these has the best performance? Any other good 240mm rads?

Any size from Alphacool NexXxoS seres are great choices. I run a 120 triple UT60 and a single 120 XT 45 in my system. Also has a protective ledge over the fins where you screw the rad to the fans/case so its a a great rad for the first time water cooler. The included screws have a very tiny head though, so you might want to pickup some 30mm and 35mm M3 screws with a bigger head.

Have a look here http://martinsliquidlab.org/2012/04/14/360-radiator-shootout-summary/ and choose a rad based on the speed you want to run your fans smile.gif

Edit: yes, they are 360 rads but performance will scale equally

Since i´m using the H220 as a pump, is there gonna be a restriction problem of the thick one compared to the thinner ones?

In general, thinner rads will be higher restriction than thicker rads. Thin rads have fewer narrow tubes to carry the water from the inlet, to the end tank and back up to the outlet.

As an example, the Alphacool Nexxos series. The ST30 has one row of tubes taking the water each way, the XT45 has two rows of tubes each way and the UT60 has three rows each way.
Therefor the UT60 has three times as many tubes to carry the same volume of water through it per minute.

H220 has a strong pump, can do CPU + 2xGPU + several rads no problem.
