i stuck with the ex series for my latest upgrade. had 240s before and upgraded to 360s (figured going to tri-sli 480s might need a bit more cooling biggrin.gif ). they seem to work really well with lower fan speeds (<1500), which also keeps everything quiet. not the best performers but they keep all my temps well within check

Yeah, but these are brand new. Do I need to use vinegar on a brand new rad?

Yes, you need to do a really thorough clean on them, or there will be particles from manufacturing that'll travel through your loop and destroy finishes/surfaces on blocks.

Yeah lots of people do. They aren't bad, but right now I'm pulling nearly 800W from the wall while folding eek.gif definitely not that efficient.
A'ight, I visited my friend who reside in Phoenix, AZ, as four times during summer times. Yes there was very humidity around me. But texas is a WORST humidity than AZ.. biggrin.gif

I have a WC build in progress but i will share what I have learned so far.

You really don't need to vinegar but the answer is yes, you need to flush your rad even if they are brand new because they can contain debris and flux residue which will have a impact on performance or the left over debris can damage your blocks. I found this http://martinsliquidlab.org/2011/02/26/flushing-your-block-rads-clean/ when I was doing my bulk of my WC research. Pretty much no matter which method you use, make sure you do the final rinse with distilled water.

Also I would check this out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9TwhwVlllo&feature=player_embedded Notice how much crap is in the filter and you don't want this stuff in your loop.

Any difference if you point the fans downward? Just curious since both fans are pointing up and are angled towards each other smile.gif

The above were brand new rads.

nope...tried both push and pull. ended up using pull just because it is easier to clean the rads.
