Which rad 360 or dual 180?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

Not sure which is the best option for an FT02. I don't want to mod the case, and want to retain the use of the HDD storage area.
Currently running a Xeon Sandy Bridge and 7970 DCII which is driving 4 x U2412M monitors. - next upgrade is Haswell.
I don't overclock, or game. I just want to reduce temps as much as possible while keeping the system close to silent via a single loop. Will be using a D5 Vario connected to an XPSC XSPC Premium Acrylic Reservoir, full DC11 block, CPU block

There's just enough clearance below the GPU for either an Alphacool XT45 180mm Dual (45mm high) with 32mm fans or an Alphacool UT60 360mm (60mm high) with 25mm fans.

I have existing Noctua NF-F12 PWM fans to run in pull on the 360 and existing Silverstone AP182 (higher static pressure than AP181) on the dual 180 in pull

Which is the best option for both quiet and low temps? I would imagine the Noctua fans are more effective on rads than the AP182's? And also quieter at between 600 and 900 RPM

Note the system runs all day everyday

Thanks in advance

This guy did some testing and pretty clearly a dual 180 will kill a 360 at the same fan speeds. Its just that large fans are limited to few options and can be much harder to control because of the power they use.
