Triple radiator

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Currently I am using the older Swiftech MCR320-QP triple radiator with Gentle Typhoon 1850rpm fans @ 1200rpm.

I am considerig upgrading the radiator to the EK-CoolStream PE 360 which has double stack copper fins. Would
such upgrade be noticable?

Other parts are EK Supreme HF for the i5 2500k and planing to add EK Thermosphere for the MSI GTX 970.
Pump is DDC 3.2 (18w).

according to the-quad-rad-roundup, its on par with an xspc ax rad.
the xspc ax rad performs better in high rpm than the 360qp.

imo, there isnt honestly going to be much of an improvement going by whats available to research. i used a few different reviews to piece that together. also, there isnt much actual difference in radiators when it comes to real world temps differences of cpu and gpu.

So, little to none benefit to upgrade the radiator. Thanks, you saved me some money.
