Question about Radiators

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hello,
I am getting a system with one Black Ice Pro Rad. I was wondering if adding another to the system would make a diff?

Thanks,
Snerp

I've read that each added radiator (120mm) will bring temps down 3C.
Read it at the Swiftech pages.

I say just get a new rad altogether, get a dual heatercore with 2xsunon 90cfm fans, thats gonna be the best rad you can get unless you want some shiny blue lights, get this one:

Whatever you do, DO NOT GET THE Black Ice Pro!! It is a horrible performer. A single heatercore will outperform the BIP by a very large amount. If you absolutely want a Black Ice radiator, go with the Black Ice Extreme.

Dude, there is absolutely no way that you can say that a radiator will drop temps 3 degrees. It's just impossible to say that. It depends on the pump, on the tubing, on the fans used, on the radiator, the shape of fins of the radiator, the other blocks in the system, the ambient temperature, the humidity level, barometric pressure. You can't make a blanket statement like that without accurate physical data to back it up.

Ok, good deal. MUCH better choice. Personally, I would still go with a heatercore, but if you like the looks of the BIX, then go for it.

I'm a convinced heatercore user. Agreed, they don't look very pretty, but if you wanted, you could get some high-gloss black spraypaint available at Home Depot, and mask off the fins, and spraypaint the heatercore to make it look much more appealing.

Heatercore comes off of a car and is used to heat up the cab. The heatercore has one perpous (to transfer heat) the computer rad usualy has to look nice and be funcional. I prefer the rad as of now because i dont realy want my room to be cluttered with larg heatercore (that i have in my closet) and i would rather use the rad i am using.
