How be this for a Q6600 and 780i NB? - Page 2

Also The GTX is cheaper, so I could have some cash left over for a 120mm rad....now which one to get?


Is what I'm saying making sense? lol.
No the GTX will beat the BIX with any cfm fan including high speed...The BIX really only does well with higher cfm fans on it 100+...

The BIX (Black Ice Extreme) is the first double row rad that Hardware Labs made...The GTX (Generation Two Extreme) Is the rad thats made to replace the BIX...The GTX works great with low to high cfm fans, the higher the better though, like with any rad...

The GTX costs double what a BIX does...Just guessing from having used both, if you had shrouds and 100+ cfm fans on both the GTX would beat a BIX by 3-4C or so....With under 100+ cfm fans the GTX would win by a bigger margin I would guess....

Don't hold me to that guesstimating, thats all it is.........A lot would depend on the heat load that you had on them also...The higher the load, like a 240 on a quad, the more it would tip in favor of a GTX...

Those 120x38mm Ultra Kaze 87cfm would be a perfect middle of the road fan on a GTX...

Oooh ok, I had my numbers inverted. For a second I thought it was the GTX that was half the price and performed better, I heard what I wanted to hear

For a bit more than the price of a 120mm I can get a 240 from swiftech, would that be a better option? I would stack it on top of the GTX (maybe a BIX since I would have 2 x 240) with a fan in between. Not sure how that would affect the performance though.

I don't think stacking fans is to good, you have the several C hotter air from the first rad going through the second rad...Its just a few C more, but it all adds up, if thats the only way you can do it having another rad would have to help, stacked or not...

I'd get a BIX, its a dual row rad, the Swifty is a single row, the more rad surface area you have the better.....A Swifty rad is OK, but really there only claim to fame is that they will cool OK with low cfm fans, they have a real low fin per inch count is why...I don't care much for them...

Hmmm..so what's better, a 120mm on the back of the case (inside) where an exhaust fan would be, or a 240mm but stacked on top of the other 240mm, with 38mm fans in between (probably more shrouds too)?

Also umm...wouldnt a swifty be the best bang for the buck since it would perform well with the limited air going through it if it's on top?

Swifties are good bang for the buck, but I think so are the HW Lab GTS series RADs, but they are really thick.

The more space the better, so a dual rad (240mm) would be best and the minimum I would go for a CPU only loop.

Well I think I'll be changing mobo...so that means I'll be able to cool the NB with an HR-05. I think changing mobo would make it worth it even just for the CPU-only loop.

In this case, what's the best rad prformace that can be had for under 150$? As long as it all fits nicely on/in the case.

I'm thinking either a BIX 240 with a swifty 240 on top, or the BIX 240 with the BIX 120 on the side....or...or... 3x swifty 240s LOL. Could work...
