Best Fan Choice 280 Rad

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all....

Any thoughts on the best fan choice for an Alphacool XT45 280mm? I hear that 120mm fans are the best....does that mean I need to get a 240mm rad instead?

Thanks in advance.

You have other options, you can go with the 280mm rad and then use adapters. I would just get a 240mm and go with some GT AP-15,
