Any info on the Koolance HX-480HL radiator?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
It is the cheapest 480, 60mm radiator I can find in Europe, but I can't find any info at all about how it perfoms, so any information will be appreciated.

Look at the ports... they are on the underside. That might not be very convenient for you.

Where do you live? Alphacool or phobya rads are available in most countries. Or EK.

I live in Spain. Normally a 480 , 60mm thick radiator goes for about 100 euros, this ones are on offer for 65, but yeah, only two ports is not the most convenient thing. If the rad perfoms well I will consider it but if it is not too good and with that port placement I will pass.

You're right. ProsilentPC sells a 480x45 for 90€, and the 60mm version for 110€. The EK one (45mm I think) is 76€. PCRelic charges about the same. Coolmod's got the XSPC EX480 for 87... None close to 60€

I'd personally avoid the Koolance (just because of the ports) and get a 360 radiator, like an XSPC. I don't like my alphacools because they're a pain to remove flux.

Martin never tested a Koolance rad in his last shoot-out, but you can clearly see that most of them performs closely. Note that thicker rads require more airflow. If you're looking for quietness, go 30 or 45mm.

If you go ahead with the Koolance rad, make sure it will fit your case (count that you'll probably add 90º elbows at the ports) and check the fan spacing (15mm is now the usual, but 20mm was the norm for multi 140mm rads).
