Got a new x-flow rad - how does it affect flow and cooling?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi.

Got the hwlabs stealth 360 one, and also got some corsair sp120 at 1400rpm to go with it. Potentially, should I lower the speed of my mcp pump to let the water run through the rad for more time and let it cool better?

I've read some roundups (like buddy's), but it doesn't say anything about pump speeds (if any). Is it linear in speed > cooling with the same type of fans?

Radiators aren't all that restrictive and they tend to perform slightly inferior to typical dual pass radiators. Lowering pump speed will never result in better cooling.
