well then pick up a new rad like the Swiftech MRC320 and some 3/8"OD Barbs and replace the little rad in your loop. The will help temps a lot.

Im sticking with XSPC as its cheap and aint that far behind the big boy stuff.

i was just going on the price-performance ratio. if you must use xspc buy this rad and these barbs (the 3/8 compression fitting like you have now).

LOL, not got space for that massive rad, i just want to get my temps down a little. That rad looks like it would be ok if i was WC'ing my 4870...but im not

Would my pump even take that rad?

That's the threading, not the barb size. You're on 3/8" tubing right now from the looks of it. Get a larger rad.

I would get this. I just assumed you are in the UK because of the currency you used.

The PA 120.2 will without a doubt beat the XSPC 120x2 rad.
