post #34401 of 106449
Hey guys just want a clarification here. I am doing a build in a Prodigy, cooling a 670FTW and a 2500k. If my loop goes res-pump-rad1-cpu-rad2-gpu-res is that a food loop? I am thinking of using Alphacool rads, but like the crossflow from ZSPC as this will keep tubing clutter to a minimum. Any suggestions for a water noobish? Only cooled a CPU before.
Thanks!

X-flow radiators don't perform as well since they usually only have 1 pass as opposed to 2 in a regular radiator. Past keeping reservoir before pump do whatever you can to make it nice and neat.

As far as x-flow rads what's the performance hit? Couple degrees? Or is it significant?
Edit: I should mention only one cross flow will be used. redface.gif

I do not think it is much, but can't seem to find any testing to prove as such at the moment.

Most of the opinions of gotten on the "X-flow" rads is that they're not good.

Could be why its not widely adopted by the rad makers, ?


I think it comes in use when needing the ports on the other side.


Anyone want to chime in with more solid opinions on these rads? I just don't have anything concrete other the the word of fellow and experienced water coolers thumb.gif

coming together. new ax860 installed tonight. next purchase will be a mcp655 pump with a top (not sure which top yet) and a mod kit. i lost an auction on one on ebay with a mod kit and a pump top for under $100......weak. after the pump ill be getting a block for my gpu and another radiator.

Any tips on tapping larger screw threads on rads? I'm thinking of taping my alphacool rad's m3 screw holes for m4. I have a ton of beefy m4 screws i can use instead of the anemic M3s tongue.gif

Bang on.

X flow rads are used when space dictates it,its not a choice if you have room for a dual pass.

You see a lot of X flow rads being used as top rads as space tends to be tightest there in regards to ports.
