Should I get the Black Ice GTX over my GTS? - Page 2

If you have a 360 rad that is doing well then add another 360 rad in series, the second rad isn't going to be pulling off as much heat as the first one does, it might help keep temp's from spiking a little but thats about it...You can have a wall of rad's and you will only get so close to ambient....

All that being said I'd probably grab a 360 or 480 GTX to.....It flows quite a bit better, and is a double row rad....
thanks for the info, I thought so too. It was my first time using the shin etsu, and I know it has to be it. I tried 4 different methods already lol.

When I get my new PSU I will remount with AS5 and see how the temps are, I will keep my Radiator for now since all I am cooling is the CPU.

Thanks for the help guys +Rep

You're not going to have that much heat where it would make a huge difference. I only see a about 3.8C between ambient and my MCR320, so even if I doubled the radiator capacity, I'd see less than 2 degree of improvement.

If you had a couple of GPUs in there, that would be a different story. The GTS and GTX use thinner tubes which helps thermal performance, but it does so with more restriction. The GTX double the amount of tubes so it's a fair amount less restrictive that the GTS, but unless your flow rates are really low which is unlikely in a singe CPU loop, you won't see much gain there either.

Give Coolaboratory Liquid Pro a try, it gave me 3 degrees under load with a much cooler C2D, should be even better on a quad.

Thanks for the info very helpful! I will check out that and see how it does.

I am sticking with the GTS.
