I just wanted to know what would make the biggest difference, might have a word with him now though about new barbs and tube

In terms of performance increase how much extra cooling performance would i see with each option?

30% boost for a new rad and 5% for new barbs and tube?? ( There guess's BTW )

Not really sure where those numbers came from but anyhow ....

Changing tubing really wont make that much of a difference, you will still be pushing the same amount of water/coolant. Just the volume will change, Im guessing that the cpu block will still be the bottleneck. (the chain is only as strong, theory).... that loop was made to do what it does.
A RAD/fan/s upgrade is the only way to go with the setup you have .... IMO
You have to cool that water down more !

BTW ... There has been reference to a 240 Rad ? are you referring to a 120 x2 ? lol

Thanks to anyone who linked to my FS thread...free advertising is good

I used to have one of those kits; you have 10/8mm tubing. You'll probably see a max performance increase of 2C, it's very negligible. The main problem with that loop is not the flow rate - it's the radiator.

Admittedly I'm biased as I'm trying to flog a PA120.2, but the benefit of a upgrading the radiator is that you'll be able to take it with you to your next system. However, there is a problem - PAs use a different thread, so you'd need to pick up two of these.

the tubing size doesnt matter
proof
so upgrade the rad.

This is why cheap watercooling isn't worth it. I love watercooling, but a TRUE would have been hassle-free.

Get the new radiator.

Check the store you bought your other stuff from for their price for a Thermalright Ultra Extreme (TRUE). It's air cooling, but it's top of the line, and generally outperforms low-end watercooling.
