Couple of questions for my future water cooling plan - Page 8

post #71 of 86
please dont plan on putting the ax on top. if you want a thin rad up top, consider the alphacool. the multiple port options will help the filling and bleeding immensely with that bay res/pump. you know already what a pain it is. the st30 with push/pull performs very well. the xt45 with push performs pretty well and even better with push/pull.
im sorry i just hate to see people buy the ax when all it is is an ex with a removable shroud/frame. btw, the ex comes in multi port and the new rx v3 are multi port...

He already has a AX240. If you mean for the other rad, I'm pretty sure H Allen decided to not get another AX for the second one.

But yeah I agree with you, just want to clear this up.

yes he is thinking of a ut60 but i dont see it fitting in the top. the ax he already has will make bleeding the bay res a pita. and i hate seeing someone buy an ax, knowing he already has it. i would be putting it in the bottom.

Yes I edited my above post saying I agree with you. So you would suggest something like an EX240 or ST30?

The EX240 multiport I guess would help bleeding, but doesn't the ST30 only have 2 ports and no extra port?

I got the AX with the kit didnt know iy was a bad rad. I don't think a ut60 on top csn fit. also ehat do u mean ax is hard to bleed?"
post #76 of 86
that or an st30, or an xt45. the ex is right in the middle of those 2. the ut60 almost requires push/pull and the xt45 can get along with just push. the ex and st30 perform great with push/pull while running lower rpm but you already know all that wink.gif

*EDIT* - bay res/pumps are a pain to bleed. with ports on both top and bottom of a rad, you can remove the stop plug and fill your loop 90% before you turn on the pump.
and the ax isnt a bad rad. marketing gimmick in my book. take an ex rad and put it in a removable housing.

I hear people say this all the time, but doesn't the AX have a higher FPI than the EX? Or is it the exact same core?

Edit: the PureOC review says it has 32 FPI including the split fins, which is 6 higher than the EX.

Just a question:

I found this block, but can't understand the language. If 28)X and 7970 gigabyte is the same. I wonder if this will work O.O

Why the LE block? It didn't do too well in this Bundymania testing, and other blocks probably have better availability.

I would probably suggest an EK or Heatkiller, from what I have heard.

Both the CPU, and GPU blocks get my EK vote.

On my next build, I am going with clear plexy covers, so I can readily inspect the state of my blocks with one quick look.
