Plus the good air flow / pressure characteristics of both types are added. So if one is slightly better at air flow and the other slightly better at static pressure, you get both. thumb.gif


This may a really dumb question...but on this rad, which holes are used to mount it?

2 are for in and out, other 2 are for mounting?

The larger holes are just alternates for G1/4 connectors. You can add a drain, Silver kill coils or temp monitors.

The rads are mounted using the same holes the fans are attached with.

That was my guess, but just seems like they would give you a little something better than that. I guess a little aluminum radiator isn't very heavy though

Mostly copper and brass actually.

You get 4 screws per fan, it's pretty robust.
