So depends on what rad you go with. You get more raddage with the 560 but less fan choice. You get allot more fan choice with the 480.
So what rad are you going with?
Hmm not sure. Because my only thought is does the change in thickness (XT45 = 46mm thick, and UT60 = 60mm thick) more than offset the move from 480mm to 540mm.
I was originally going for the 480mm, but I would have to wait for a local supplier to get them in, which could take a while and I know he has a 540mm in now.
If I was to go for a 480, should I definitely aim for the Alphacool UT60? Or maybe go down the XSPC route and maybe pick up a EX480?

i cant find it now, but it said that triple 180 rads have more surface area than quad 140. and of course the bigger the fan the lower rpm and quieter they will be. and i think AP 182 are better than 181 also was in another 180 fan comparison but i'm sorry i cant find any of the articles now cuz i viewed them on my work pc
i was considering the magicool triple 180mm
Hmm you mean the slimline rad right? (35ish mm?) I think I want to go thicker than that because of the fact that it will cool more. But then I may have to increase the speeds of the fan to have enough pressure to push them through the rad. So many tradeoffs!
