Which Radiator is better? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
The SR1 uses 20mm fan spacing, the others use 16mm. So buy whatever will fit your case. The SR1s build quality is considerably better than the others if you care for aesthetics. Personally I don't buy any radiators besides HWLabs Black Ice.

My SR1 is 15 mm spacing

Edit: Nevermind ... 360mm not 280mm

I have an SR-1 280mm rad and it is an excellent performer. It has a built in plenum if you mount the fans in pull. I have used it with 1000 rpm 140mm fans and now with two AP-15's (120 mm fans and a custom mount to seal the plenum - read about it on Martin's Liquid lab website).
Like Lowfat I only use HWLabs and have never been disappointed.

I have never used Alphacool, but they have an excellent reputation. I think if you will be happy with either.

I use to be the same way as you with radiators. Recently, I purchased a few Alphacools and surprisingly I could not be happier. I would highly reconmend them.

I know the UT45 and UT60 seem to be the rage at this time, but I like my RX360's. I've bought 2 used at $50 in excellent condition and can't justify spending that kind of money(UT60) on performance that is within the margin of error. Plus, it's inside the case in most instances and you don't see them. performance over bling anyday. I personally think airflow and fan choice has more to do with it. my 2cents.gif

Ut45 and UT60 rads are nowhere near bling radiators. They are value radiators, going any cheaper then alphacool rads is probably getting into dangerous territory.

So RX Rads are dangerous? lol! UT60 and UT45 aren't value rads. Swiftech is a value rad. RS is a value rad. Any of the thin line rads, save AX series are value rads. doh.gif

I dont understand those companies all make similarly sized rads priced very close together?.. Alphacool, swiftech, xspc rads are all in the same catagory. I think you took my wording of "they are value radiators" i little too seriously. I meant alphacool makes value radiators. Good quality, good price. RX rads cost about the exact same as alphacool BTW, you got your panties in a bunch from a 2 dollar price difference from a rx240 60mm width to an Alphacool 240 UT60
