Just about anything would help, radiator selection mainly depends on the space you have an what kind of fans you want to run, and finally the budget you have. An MCR220 is fairly low restriction and low in price. You could then get some smaller barbs as needed to fit your existing tubing and if later you go to larger tubing you can just pick up some barbs. If you had the money, the Thermochill PA series would be better performers at even low pressure drop, but you pay for it and they are thicker. Both the thermochill and swiftys are better rads for low to medium speed fans. If you wanted to get more and noise is not a problem....some 100+ CFM 38mm fans and something the the HWlabs GTX or BIX series are good.

just curious, what rad do you have? a 4 x 120mm? assuming you use all 4 fans for it, but more than likely you got a 3 x 120mm since 1 is atleast intake.
i run a triple rad for my nb/sb/cpu/gpu

good stuff, thanks a lot. i was thinking about that magicool 480 gtx quad radiator. i dont know if youve heard about this, but it looked pretty clean.

furthermore..i am a colossal dumbass. i had my fans set to auto and my temp probe was picking up the room air temp which is probably around 27c. so my fans thinking my cpu was this cool almost came to a damn idle state. good god im a noob. so i uped my fans to the max and now my cpu temp is like 25c right now. holy crap im dumb LMAO! i will buy another radiator and ill look into what you said.

thanks man rep +

yeah im definately going to get an add on radiator. especially since its not economic to have the AC on full blast 24/7! i was thinking of that german made magicool 480 gtx quad radiator..it looked really nice. and whats even more crazy is that they had a 9 fan radiator too! talk about over the top!

which dual rad are you currently (were you currently running?) and what 2 fans did you have on them?
