Anyone doing Radiator Reviews Anymore?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Just wondering what kind of performance improvement if any can be had by going from the original XSPC RX360 to an EK-CoolStream XE 360. Just curious as I wanted my next build to be 100% EK parts.

Xtremerigs.net still does excellent radiator evaluations - http://www.xtremerigs.net/2015/02/11/radiator-round-2015/5/

Can't say I'm particularly a fan of the single branded loops. You will wind up making concessions as no company is the best in all facets.

EK rads perform well and the new ones look the best IMO so I usually include them in my builds. However, there are instance when you would need a different brand radiator, because EK doesn't make a cross-flow radiator for instance.

Thanks all. Looks like it does perform better than the RX360. The rad is going in the front of a Define S with the fittings at the top to prevent air bubble headaches. From the looks of the review the rad has a simple U flow and is the best performing rad at the fan speeds I will be running.

Still deciding on whether to re-use my bitspower compression fittings or also go with EK fittings. I don't like the bitspower branding on the fittings. EK fittings are just all black.

Also was going to get Noctua NF-F12 iPPC fans but ended up deciding on EK-Vardar F4-120ER fans as they seem to be quieter from all the fan videos I have seen. The noctua seem to have a motor buzzing noise. Really wish my AP-15s were PWM or I would just stick with them but I plan on putting them in my server anyway.
