So, I ran GTA V for a couple hours and had hardware monitor open the whole time. So then you can see how my system faired with just one 240 rad. smile.gif This was run at about 21C Ambient
Heres the Hardware monitor screenshot:

The rad fans are the 1418rpm max or the 2812rpm max speed?

I think the front rad fans (Corsair SP120 Performance editions) are the 2812 RPM one, while the 1418 is my Gentle Typhoon that is doing a little bit of pulling on the back of the rad. While the 4326 is the rpm sensor for the pump.

If I remember correctly, you actually lose performance by having mismatched fan speeds like that on a radiator, but I could be wrong...

SP120 performance editions only go 2350 RPM, so not sure what the 2812RPM is from

Yeah, I was thinking about that, I should probably grab another sp120 and put that as the pull fan.
Yeah, they are said to only go to 2350, but those are the fastest fans I have in there. My gentle typhoon AP-14 can't possibly be spinning that fast...

Edit: Actually, I think the reason why that reading is higher than expected is because I am using a Y style fan splitter. Since there are two of those SP120s connected to the CPU fan header on the motherboard, it may be confusing it a bit and not giving a correct reading.

Independently what fan is blowing more air through the rad, most important is that your delta is very good, considering you have 2xgpu and 1xcpu in the same loop with only 240mm rad space.

IMPORTANT: When we are talking about water cooled hardware, the most important parameter is the DELTAS.
Delta temp from ambient temperature to the water loop temperature, and delta temperature from water to the cpu and gpu temperatures.
My rads are thin, 30mm thickness, and the performance gain from 1800rpm to 2200rpm is less than 1℃. High rpm is better for thicker rads.

Hi there folks, i recently bought a used parts bundle and have a quick question. It had pretty much everything i needed except for memory and a hdd/ssd, so put that in myself and its working great. Its a 2600k housed in a Corsair Air 240, but its only running with the stock intel cooler right now, which im guessing we all know is a terrible thing, i mean it works, but its not very efficient and worst of all, it makes so much noise.

What i am trying to figure out right now is what kind of CPU cooler i can fit in the case, would like to stick to air, which is what i have always used, never used a custom waterloop or even an AIO, not that i dont want to use a AIO in the case, but they arent exactly cheap.

Would like to overclock a bit, i mean the 2600k is known for being a good overclocker, what kind of air cooler would fit the case, be quiet and leave some room for overclocking? smile.gif

Air coolers are tough in this case so if you went there you would have to go low profile. I have a Zalman XMP5 at 5.5 in high and it wouldn't fit, the side window wouldn't close. There are some low profile ones that are supposed to be good and quiet too but I have never used one. This case seems to be made for a 240 mm AIO like the H100i or a full loop which is probably overkill and very costly. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA68V32N4373&cm_re=bequiet_Dark_Rock_TF-_-9SIA68V32N4373-_-Product This might fit, I am not sure.

The best air coolers for this case are both from noctua, the NH-U9S, and the NH-C14S (this fits only with 1 fan on the bottom, blowing upwards). Both perform almost the same, a bit behind the bigger 12-14cm fan towers.

Yeah i does seem to be a case mostly build for watercooling, but AIOs do cost quite a bit and seem rather overkill for my build, but im thinking about something like this - http://www.cryorig.com/c1.php should fit and seems to do a decent job.

Gonna take a look at those, so far i have been looking at these - http://www.cryorig.com/c1.php / http://www.raijintek.com/en/products_detail.php?ProductID=9, both should fit easily, not sure how efficient they are tho smile.gif
