What radiator + fans?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am going to buy nzxt phantom 530, but cannot find anywhere how thick radiators it support.


I am going to get at least 360mm + later 280/240mm rad later for gpu.

I will cool:
i5 4670k
gtx 770 (maybe another too, who knows!)



So how thick and what fpi rad + fans should I get for that setup while having some airflow for mobo vrm, or would using 140mm good airflow fan on the pivot spot attached to hdd cage be good enough for it?

for radiator it can depend on what type of fans you want to get. some radiators like low rpm fans some like high rpm fans. I prefer radiators that like low rpm fans so I dont have to run my fans to loud to get good cooling performance.

I havent looked at that case much but some good thin radiators that like low rpm fans are alphacool st30s xt45s or if you want to get a thick radiator XSPC RX360 radiators like low rpm fans.

but there are tons of radiators out there so maybe decide if you want to get low rpm fans first or high rpm to help pick radiators or pick radiators first according to the size you and see if they are high or low fpi and what fans work best on them
