Pull Monsta vs. Push-Pull UT60

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Looking to cool an overclocked 4770K + 2 780 classifieds in a merlin SM8.

From what I've read the Monsta performs exceptionally well but I'm not sure how well it would do setup for pull compared to the UT60 in push-pull.

I'd appreciate some feedback as to what you all think or what you've seen from experience with these specific radiators.

Thanks

basic rule of rad thickness is use the thickest can you can fit with push/pull fans, so go with the Alphacool UT60 in push/pull. This is because not only do thicker rads add more airflow restriction but as the air heats up while flowing through the rad it becomes less and less effective at removing the heat. The simple way to combat that is to increase the air's velocity (I.e. More airflow).

this brings us back to push/pull, so that it can keep airflow high enough with the increased resistance.
