OR a thicker rad with a low FPI.

Split fins just make it more complicated.

But the Monsta in p/p would be half the price as your rad sandwich.

OK thank you guys!!! So would I get more performance from an 80mm monsta with good static pressure fans in push/pull or better performance from 45mm rad in push or pull X 2 both as exhausts with intakes at the back and front of the 915r? ?

Two 45mm rads getting fresh air would work best....beter than a Monsta.
Using them as both exhaust will let your water cooled stuff run just a little hotter while your air colled stuff will run cooler.
Tits for tats really, your pick.

Air cooled stuff is in a different part of case though..how would it affect their temps? It's purely a modular part for the radiators only. Google a pic of the haf stacker if you need an image.

Your post doesn't make sense to me.

I would do two push-pull XT45 radiators, both as intake and make the front and back fan exhaust.

Rad sandwich has never performed well.... http://martinsliquidlab.org/2012/06/08/hesmelaughs-radiator-sandwich-testing/

As for the orientation, I would do all intake minus the front and back fans like morencyam said. Positive pressure = better results for water cooling. xt45 is a fantastic rad. XT45 or ST30 are my two choices personally, but I would go with the ST30 over XT45 due to price, space, and performance as push pull provides marginal performance increases.

Can i just say martin did not try the config of fan > rad> shroud > fan > shroud > rad > fan so i would love it if you could show me someone who has tested that theory?

Also can someone point me to the direction of a very knowledgeable radiator person that i can private message?

I could always go dual 45's as intakes with a divider in the middle and pushing out the front and back exhausts of the case.

Would love to chat in private though as this thread feels like a lot of cross information aha

You mean bottom rad sucking in and top rad exhausting?

That amounts to rad sandwiching, which is not very efficient.

But stop racking your brains over it.
You can play around and flip your fans once you get it running.

Look at the pic..they are side by side and there is a divider in between them. Both are intake and the front/back is exhaust.
