I mean how did you texture the surfaces, how did you over lay images on the surfaces to make the gpus look like gpus and the motherboard to have all of the little details.

I'm trying to find the best slim rad for my R1 build Darkside has been suggested and magi cool slim also look good, the best appears to be black ice gts but they are 133mm wide, has anyone fitted these to an R1??
On the Parvum site it says rads of upto 135mm will fit, that's snug!!
Views or experiences please.

I have used the Magicool G2 Slim 360MM in my project red&black and they work well.
Also low air flow noise compared to most thumb.gif

We did a CAD fit of the HWLabs Rads and as ive said they dont fit, Alphacool st30 rads are 30mm thick those are another one you could use.

Mads1 Parvum web site says 135mm max, Hardware labs say their rad is 133mm so why wont it fit?
Either Parvum measurement is wrong or Hardware labs is wrong, your CAD is probably right but possibly different to my case!
In the 1980's I worked on helicopters where quite often stuff didn't fit in what were supposedly the same airframe (Seaking MK IV & MK V) so please do exscuse my sceptisim whem talking about hand made products, If no one has actually tried these rads how do we know they don't fit?

The EK PE that's in there at present is allegedly 130mm and there is a site more than 3mm clearance on that to the inside edge of the case, I just don't get why it wont fit? is there a variance in the manufacture process of the Parvum cases?
Actually I know there is as my top plate is around 2mm to long, its pushing the face plate forward.
I haven't managed to find any reviews of Darkside rads to compare with the others, EK SE look poor, Darkside if comparable to xspc are less capable compared to Magicool from the reviews I found and the Nemesis GTS 360 spanks them all hence why I would like to use it if it fits...
This is doing my fruit!!

Radiator reviews should only be used as a guide.
Unfortunately the only measurements you can take as a standard from that review is the flow rate and fin pitch.
To me there the most important pieces of information you need when designing a loop anyway.

When a test is done under conditions that do not replicate the environment its going be running in there will be discrepancy.
The test you refer to was performed in open air with there test conditions using non manufacture specific fans and as such will not perform to manufactures specs.

No account is taken into consideration regarding the case i.e. is it running negative or positive pressure.
Is it pushing air out or pulling the air in that alone could give you 5-10% discrepancy?

At the end of the day any of the radiators you have listed would be more than adequate at cooling anything you can fit into that size case and motherboard.

Personally I have used all the rads listed below in my last 5 builds and I find them all to be good performers in the real world environment.

My experiance

Magicool: provide the best value, performance and noise.
HW labs: a little better all-round than Magicool other than price.
Alphacool and XSPC: sit just below Magicool and HWlabs again good value.
EK: good looking a nice all-rounder but not quite the performer of the above.
Needs a good static pressure fan to get the best out of them.

The one thing you can be certain of is the HWlabs rads will not act the same in your case as they did in that particular test.

A good thing about Parvum cases they are easy to move air round them.

This is only my opinion based on my own personal experience.

Do any of you R1 owners have a preferred way of mounting the fans in the lower chamber? i.e fan on bottom or top of radiator so sucking air from below the case and exhausting out of the sides or sucking in through the sides and exhausting through the base? One way will require spaces for my fittings to clear the fans and the other won't.
Thanks.

Just run as push on top. After more testing, Hwlabs will fit as the retail case was made wider, doh i forgot as it was being measured on a pre-production model. rolleyes.gif

frown.gif At least you'll have plenty of heat to dissipate to get return out of the radiators you bought.
