rad recommendation Hardware Labs or XSPC or Aquacomputer?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Can't make up my mind which one to chose...for cpu and gpu loop with low rpm fans (silence).

Black Ice SR2 Xtreme+ 480 MP Multi Port Radiator - Black Carbon
http://www.highflow.nl/radiatoren/4-x-120mm-480/black-ice-sr2-xtreme-480-mp-multi-port-radiator-black-carbon.html

XSPC RX480 Quad Radiator V3
http://www.highflow.nl/radiatoren/4-x-120mm-480/xspc-rx480-quad-radiator.html

Both have really good heat dissipation at lower fan RPM and are optimized for high flow they are considered "low restriction" radiators.

Most importantly which one comes out the factory the cleanest? Meaning they don't have much flux and other gunk inside i don't know which rad companies according to the water cooling community makes the cleanest radiators so please enlighten me.

I even opted for this rad

Aquacompter airplex radical 4/360, copper fins
http://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_info.php?products_id=3341

One thing i like about the airplex rad it doesn't use flux so basically it should be the cleanest rad out there no gunk or crap however its a medium restriction rad and doesn't really impress with heat dissipation it does fairly well at 750rpm fans. What temps are we talking about if say with the above 2 rad your cpu is 28c idle and 42c load what would the airplex radical achieve in temps 32c idle?? i don't mind 3 to 4c difference between the top dogs and this airplex rad since its so clean...your thoughts?

Your feedback is much appreciated thanks in advance.

HWL or XSPC are far better performers than the Airplex. The HWL performs a little better, but it isn't a huge difference. I have never had overly dirty HWL or XSPC rads, I can't speak for Airplex as I haven't used them.

Thanks for reply,

I managed to contact a german reviewer who did an indepth review for the Radical airplex 4 - 420 and more radiatiors asked him questions about flow, cooling and restriction he replied and i still got some more questions when they get answered il know what to buy either the black ice sr2 multi port or the radical 420. Currently its a 50%, 50% whether to take the one above the other...

Have you ever received that review on the Aquacomputer rad?
