Alpha Cool XT45 vs Hardware Labs GTS + 80mm Radiators (worth using)?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
1. I have the option to go with AlphaCool XT45 (45 thickness) or Hardwarelabs GTS (29 Thickness). Which one would give me the best results in the 800 to 1000 RPM range?
1A. With XT 45 I can only do push or pull with GTX I could do Push/Pull. Not sure it's worth doing Push/Pull for a degree or two cooler.

2. Is it worth getting a dual 80mm radiator? Space in my case is limited and only have room for one 240 and dual 80mm in the back.

At lower rpm the GTS is a much better performer. Going P/P will gain you essentially nothing in terms of performance, it will simply make your build louder.

It's 80mm rads and fans though, so at the same fan speed there will be less air through the rads compared to the 120mm Gentle Typhoons used in those graphs. The Black Ice GTS will be even more at an advantage, but the OP would be better off with higher speed operation or this is one case where push-pull will be worth it.
