Take a look at martins testing here:

http://martinsliquidlab.org/2012/04/14/360-radiator-shootout-summary/

Martin is kind of like the prophet of watercooling here on OCN, people follow his reviews religiously.

@ 2200 RPM the Swiftech XP series performs as well as the UT60. These tests were in just push though, so if you pull a Swiftech XP in push/pull you'll easily get some really good thermals in comparison.

GT AP-15s in push/pull would probably give you similar thermals to GT AP45 in just push or just pull.

Again, I'd recommend getting the thickest rad you can fit in push/pull. Can you give me an estimate of radiator clearance, that being the thickness you can fit with the rad and fans attached?


According to the details i got from the case

Clearance : VGA Card 305mm (w/o fan), 280mm (installed), 230mm (full pivot) Cable Management 25mm
Dimensions 215mm(W) x 516mm(H) X 532mm(D)

Im not sure if thats helpful....but im guessing around 2.5-3.5 cm thickness one's max .... because that 5.6 cm v3 black is a little to big.
This is phillyd's setup Here



Now looking at this im guessing i'll need some thin but powerful fans. Or the other idea what i got was mount the radiator on the outside and have the fan blowing from inside is. Is that effective or am i just being stupid ? biggrin.gif:D

I can attached say around a 2.5cm - 4cm radiator on top like this
(But not that v3 one because , the one shown in pic, its a 6cm rad ... wont fit on top)

So i can put the rad on top and have the gentle typhoons attached inside and have them blowing out from the bottom of rad to the top.

Will that work or am i just being stupid with these ideas ? redface.gifredface.gif

Thanks a lot bro.

Externally mounting the rad onto the internal rad threading should work fine, just might look a little silly but if you're okay with that who cares.

Swiftech XP push/pull or Hardware Labs GT STealth if you can fit them, biggest rad you can fit on the outside in push/pull. I'd recommend HW Labs GTX, HW Labs SR-1, Nexxxus Monsta, or the RX240 R3.

Really up to you though, but I would advise push/pull non the less. You'll always want to maximize performance if you have limited radiator space.

As far as I'm aware fin louvering on rads is pretty standard. I know my EK and Alphacool rads have it and I think my old Koolance rad did too.
It can be a bit hard to see because it doesn't start right on the edge of the fins but if you tilt the rad back and use a light the little grooves can be seen.

The new EK PE rads are split fin and louvered similar to the XSPC AX so I'm hoping the will perform similarly.
