Aquacomputer Modularity 360 or Watercool HTSF2?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm looking at purchasing a new low fpi radiator to replace my XSPC EX360. I am currently just running an overclocked i7 3930k CPU on the loop and may add a single GTX 780 in the future. The main reason for switching radiators is noise since my computer is located in my bedroom.

I've been looking at the Aquacomputer AMS 360 aluminum fin and the Watercool HTSF2 radiators. I'm currently leaning towards the Aquacomputer since I have had experience with their products in the past, but the HTSF2 is about $50 cheaper than the AMS. I've only seen one thread on the Aquacomputer and none on the Watercool. Are there any owners of either radiator that can share their experience (good or bad) with either radiator or any performance comparison threads I may have missed?

It's worth checking these reviews. The Alphacool rads are worth looking at for bang for buck.

Thanks for the link. So it looks like the AMS 360's performance is average to below average. Would the 420 version perform any better for $10 more? And is there anything on the Watercool?

As shallow as it is, one of the biggest reasons I am looking at these two is because of their design/look even though there's likely cheaper, better performing radiators.

What fans are you running on the EX. I have an EX 360 and an EX 240 with the Swiftech Helix's in Push/Pull on them and it is pretty quite and does a good job at cooling every thing.
+1 on the Alphacools if your switching.

I am running Aerocool Shark fans on the EX360. The EX360 does and excellent job, but I would like to replace it with a low fpi radiator and silent fans now that I have a case large enough to fit a 60mm rad.

Swiftech QP's have low fin density, I've used them and the XP before with good results.
