Alphacool rads are top notch.

So I was aiming around 250watts of dissipation, which was why I was looking at the thicker rad, Im guessing with everything I do at the moment, so if you think I should go a different way, please dont hesitate to express your opinion, that's why I made thread!

Also, these Vishera chips are crazy hot, but I do only have a 120mm closed loop in push pull, so I dont really have adequte cooling as it is lol.

the GT15's Gentle Typoons, are PWM "Quiet orientated" fans right? I wonder how they perform, I need to do some more reading!

GT ap15 are not PWM, but they are quiet and move alot of air through a radiator. The GT ap29 is PWM mod-able but you have to do it yourself.
A 360 UT60 is more than enough radiator for a 8 core FX chip. With ap15 on the rad as well, for that matter. It's enough for an OC'd FX cpu.

Now the thing is, there MAY not be a AM3+ SR chip. It is not looking good as they have said the FX9590 5Ghz chip would be the last FX series to be released. Which is the 220W TDP chip you nay be thinking of. One last thing, a cpu rated at 220W TDP is not the same as a radiator dissipating 200W of heat.
So yes a 360 UT60 is good for a oc'd cpu loop.

I have a Monsta 360 and love it. It's a massive radiator, but cools like a beast. It actually has 7 ports. 6 on the bottom and 1 on top. I personally use AP-14 1450RPM fans on it. I'm sure you could go with 800-1000 RPM fans and it would cool very well too.

+1 on Xinrullian 1200s at 7v..good, quiet and oh so cheap fans.
I use a pair of NexXxos UT 240's and i'd definitely recommend them.thumb.gif

Seeing as how you're discussing Alphacool 360mm rads, this would seem to be an appropriate place to ask my question. I've just bought an Alphacool NexXxoS 360mm radiator. There was zero documentation in the box and Alphacool support has yet to reply to my question.

How are the six ports arranged for input and output? There's no markings I could find on the radiator. I understand that the cooling lines are in a U shape. Are the input vs output ports divided between the two separate bulkheads? Does it matter which way I have the coolant flowing through this radiator?

Thanks

As long as one bulkhead is used for input, the other needs to be output. There is no designation or requirement, flow will be symetrical either way. You can use any combination of port out of the 3 on each partition, they are there for your convenience in arranging your loop.

If that's the case, then the only reason I can see to be plumbing it one way or the might be for drainage efficiency. Thanks for the quick reply.

The Koolance fans linked in the OP are good fans - not as good as their listed stats suggest - but fine for their price and pretty quiet when slowed down by a fan controller. I used them for a while with an H100 and was happy with them, a little more-so than I was with Corsair's fans (bought them because one of those died on me). Although not as good as more expensive Gentle Typhoon AP-14 or AP-15s, Noiseblockers, etc, the Koolance fans would still be a pretty good choice when used with a fan controller in a push-pull for the UT60 or Monsta, or the ST30 or XT45 in either push or pull. You will definitely want to use them with a fan controller though (same goes for most any other fan too) as they aren't exactly what I'd call 'quiet' fans at full blast up against a rad. They do blow a decent amount of air though, at least they did though my Corsair AIO even at slower speeds. If you can afford better fans, then by all means get them, but if you're on a budget I wouldn't think the Koolance fans are a bad choice at all.

And on that note, personally, I'd go for the thickest Alphacool rad you can afford & have room for. If you can fit the Monsta in push-pull, go for it, but not-so-much if you only want to go with one set of fans. In that case you'd probably be better off with any of the other Alphacool rads, though for the same reasons I'd probably rather only have push-pull with the UT-60 too, as that way you can dial the fans down much slower/quieter and still get very good cooling results. In the thinner rads there's not going to be as much benefit to having the extra set of fans, but the thinner the rad the more you'll need to turn the fans up a bit more to achieve decent results.

I use the Koolance fans, and have used them for a while on numerous things, at the moment on a UT60 in push-pull. They are made by Delta (some by Sanyo Denkei) and are very high quality, having measured them with an anemometer, their specs are the closest thing to spot on I've seen outside of server fans (look at my post history, I recently posted some results of various fans I tested at lab).

The spec that matters is Static Pressure, not cfm, and the Koolance FAN-12025HBK and 12038HBK produce an immense amount compared to any of the "big companies" fans, and show this in their performance.

I 110% endorse them, and FWIW, the AP15s don't come close in performance, they just have a better noise profile, and the Corsair SP series are not even half as strong. Considering the Koolance fans have dual ball bearing motors as well, and undervolt very well, I have quite honestly been disappointed with nearly every other fan I've bought, especially since almost all of them are somewhat to a lot more expensive.
