(the XT45 240 is being out of stock for a while now at PPCS and i am starting leaning towards other options to finally order. also worth mentioning that nesides the 240 rad there would be the ST30 3660 rad with push.) Or just go with the Magicool 45mm thick 240 rad which is pretty much the same thing as the XT45 (since it is the XT45's OEM just without the additional 4 G1/4 mountings, without the screw protectors agains puncture and a 16 fpi instead of 10)
if there are any other rad suggestions please add any thumb.gif (it is important to note that i do not wish to have a 60mm 240 rad with push pull, since it would be too tight for some connectors)
also, what is the effect of a clear cpu block top with red coolant and white LEDs? (considering instead the raystorm with red LEDs)

anyone? ( Deja Vu ? tongue.gif )

The XT45 is thinner which means it will have less cooling ability compared to a UT60. They might even out more if the XT45 was in P/P vs a UT60 in push alone. Either way the price difference between the UT60 and XT45 will be null because the required 2 xtra fans for p/p. For me less fans equals less noise and I would just go with a UT60 in push. 2cents.gif

Cases that is the same but yours is in black original as I can see, mine is the classic silver and I was troubled enough to paint the plastic and metal in similar shades.
Matherboard that you use once and I had one of my greatest loves, I used two Nvidia GTX480 on it, everything is working great ...thumb.gif
7970 is a great card and does not need more than water, but I like the quiet machine that's why I went to the LC. In the cooling system and the 480rade 280rad but the fans are set to minimum rpm.
Here is print screen temperature...

You have put a lot more work on the case itself than i have. Very nice job indeed. I kept the original black paint, that i love and have zero modifications on the case, that automatically made me spent more than 20 work hours on cable management alone and quite a lot of money for external wc.

Here you can see the status of my system before the cable management.... Chaos...http://www.thelab.gr/1063379701-post2217.html

Regarding the temps, I get max 33C on the 2 gpu cores and vrms max 39-42C when on unigine 3. I suppose that Furmark is a lot more demanding, thats why you have slightly higher temps...

Good Job thumb.gif

The difference between those radiators is going to be a degree or two at most. Id just buy whatever is cheapest.

thanks for the input. i was asking because many reviews (if i recall correctly even Martin's, i wish i could access one) state that these 2 radiators are so close that its barely noticeable.

on a different note, what is the usual difference between push and p/p ? (noticeable?)

the problem is not that, its that the cheaper (XT45) isn't available and the UT60 is. so it's either buy the UT60 or wait (even) more time to save that money on the XT45 (and a bit space, though p/p is considered)

A thinner rad in P/P usually out perfoms a thicker rad in just push or just pull. The noise difference when running P/P compared to just push or pull is minimal, like 2-4 Db. That being said, it is close enough to where you aren't going to notice anything drastic from one set up to the other unless you are running fans at like 2700 rpms.

well, these are the Corsair SP120 QE ,i.e. 1450 RPM (with decent pressure of 1.3 mm/H20 ) so i guess the difference is minimal at best. also, odd enough it would be cheaper overall for me. (since i'm buying the fans locally and they are more expensive here, like everything frown.gif )

and on a different note, which 7970 block you (people) think would be better? the Koolance 7970 block, or the Aquacomputer 7970 block?

It is awesome thumb.gif. Not very loud at all until about 90%+ pump speed. Mine runs just fine through the cpu block, gpu block, 2 480 rads and dual bay res.

Koolance between those two, though my favorite is the Komodo.
