@EK-CEO Planning on getting the Predator 360 and running it in push/pull. Do you know if that will be able to fit inside a Corsair 760T?

Should be fine. It'll come close. You'll obviously lose use of a couple 5.25 bays.

Yep thats fine since I dont use them, my only concern is the the fans conflicting with the motherboard so most likely I'll have to mount it a bit further away from the motherboard not using the standard mounting holes on top of the case.

I just order the Predator 240 and was wondering which fans would have better performance on the rad, the vardar that comes with it or Noctua Industrial 3000 RPM fans? I have both so it's not going to cost me extra either way and sound isn't an issue for me.

These Vardars are insanely good. Like...insanely good. Little louder than normal but....the amount they can push through a radiator is just downright impressive. I would say just give them a try before pondering anything else.

Not entirely sure about the "freakishly quiet" though. At 100% on the ones that came with mine they sound like a 747 but...needing them at 100% is almost....why....they already push so much air...lol thumb.gif

any video possible from the current owners to see the noise level at 1000rpm vs 2000rpm?
post #967 of 7180
When does the free shipping end on pre-orders of the 360? 240 free shipping g is over right?

PS. Anyone put this in an arc mini r2 yet?

Be careful judging noise from videos, too many factors that can mess things up.

Yeah I know that's why if there were a couple to listen to it would be more comprehensive.

The pump itself is quiet, and the rubber dampener on the rad helps out also since the fans themselves have no corner pads. The fans are louder than most at the same fan speed but mostly because they blow more air than just about any fan at the same fan speed. So from the fans at 50% on, the pump is no longer contributing to the overall noise. At 100%, the fans are indeed loud but there is not much you will gain in terms of cooling going from, say, 60-75% fan speed to 100%. I will not make a video but in terms of full on comparison, it is louder than the Swiftech H220-X, the Phanteks PH-TC14PE, the be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3 and Cryorig R1 Ultimate. It is also quieter than the Corsair H100i GTX and H110i GT, and the NZXT x41 (single 140 CLC). These are mostly down to the different max fan RPMs, but hopefully you get an idea. I will have quantitative numbers soon.
