Radiator choice for 140mm fans

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Fans would be medium rpm F140MP from phanteks, what would give the best performance, there are some reviews but they contradict each other and I cant make up my mind of wich ones to order, wich ones would you go for, lookin for 420 and 280.

Black Ice SR2 Xtreme+ 420
Black Ice Nemesis GTX 420
Black Ice Nemesis GTS 420
EK-CE 420

Pricewise its SR2>GTX>EKCE>GTS
I am leaning towards Nemesis GTX or EK-CE
SR2 is too big,GTS too thin ?

All good rads! I'm running a 280 and 420 EK-CE, been real happy with them.

I'd pick the ones that look best with your build. If your using all EK blocks, use the EK rads too. thumb.gif

Thanks for sharing, I looked around and could not find anyone running nemesis GTX or SR2 in the define, and the SR2 & CE seemed to be pretty much identical performance wise, also CE is cheaper, so I quess im just going for those.
Any chance you could share a pic of your case with the CE280 and CE420, are you running the define R5 or S aswell ?

I'm using a Corsair 750D case. I have an album on my profile with more pics you can check out.

Holy jesus, that looks sweet, you are runnin tripple sli and I was worried if 420+280 CE will manage single GPU + CPU with low temps, I quess I got my answer, how are your temps ?
Also I like how you did your drain, was wondering how I´d run my tubes, this seems like something I could do.

Yes Tri-Sli thumb.gif I was originally only going to run two cards, but decided to go with three. A 420 plus a 280 is almost the same as a 480 plus a 360 surface wise, so still would have liked more rad, but my temps actually aren't bad.

When gaming the cards run in the mid 40's and the CPU is usually in the 60s, some times the max core gets into the 70's, and that's with the CPU @ 4.9 GHz with a 1.35 vcore!

Yes I have never seen anyone do a drain like that. That is not how I had originally planned it, but that's how I ended up doing it and seems to work fine.

Word!

I would do the EK 420, no particular reason, just cause it looks the coolest of them all, but if you need multiports then the SR2. The GTS is a thinner rad so unless you have space problems maybe cut it out of the list.

I have an older black ice GTX and really like it, don't think it's dual pass like the nemesis version though. Not as familiar with 140mm land, is 1.6mm H2O good for a fan that size? All the rads look roughly the same fin density, IMO i'd go GTX.

EDIT: push pull or just push?

Edit 2: Tests!
