Upgrading radiator to reduce ambient temperature? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 
Still not too sure which is the better solution for me.

I understand that the amount of heat generated is the same regardless of how many radiators I have. But with my current setup, I think that my radiator is unable to dissipate heat fast enough thus resulting in a build up of thermal energy which contributes to higher component temperatures and eventually increases my room temperature. So would upgrading my radiators be a better option here or going for a portable ac?

get the portable ac unit. as duckie already said, you will dump the same amount of heat in the room no matter how many rads you use. more rads are used to lower the water temp not to make it more comfortable for you to sit in the room temp wise.
