If you had to choose between 2x 240 rads and 360+120, what would you go for then?

I personally really, really like 140 rads, as you get a lot more usable surface area by simply making the radiator wider, but not a whole lot longer... For example, a 3x140 radiator (using basic math) has slightly more surface area than a 4x120 radiator; then when you factor in needing only 3 fans instead of 4, you have one less "dead spot" due to the fan hubs (further increasing usable surface area).

The problem for many people is the lack of fan selection, although I think that it has gotten significantly better even just over the past year. I personally think that the Bgears Blasters (140mm 1800rpm 103cfm/3.5mmH2O - rated specs) are just about the best 140mm radiator fan you can get for the money, although NoiseBlockers and others are also quite good.

Also, I have found (at least with my EX420 using 6 of the Bgears in Push-Pull) that the Phobya 140x140x7mm Shrouds/Decouplers work exceedingly well at reducing noise, preventing ANY air leakage, and giving a *slight* performance gain... At least that is true for the EX series, which is 19-split-fins-per-inch, and may not hold as true for lower FPI radiators.


The UT60 280 would be, in my opinion, the best radiator for your needs. One of the "coolest" (haha, I made a pun-ny!) things about it is that, likely due to the massive amounts of copper used in its construction, cooling ability scales almost perfectly-linearly with fan speed! Therefore, buying fast fans and a fan controller would allow you to have nice, low, quiet fan speeds for 24/7 use but crank them up and give your loop some serious heat dissipation ability! I personally have a UT60 240 (didn't want to lose a front intake fan on my Switch 810 in order to fit a 280), and I went with the beastly Koolance 120x25mm 2600rpm fans (spec'd at 107cfm and 5.4mmH2O) in push-pull, and when cranked up they move an insane amount of air!

Point being, I would go for 140mm rads over 120mm rads any time I had the option!

For that 355, hook it up to a fan controller and drop the voltage and she'll purr like a kitten thumb.gif

Its odd because i even have the swiftech heatsink on it, also my fan controller is rated up to 30w, how do i convert a molex to 3pin?
Also my pump is really weird... If you lift it up
Itll stop running but as soon as you place it back on the ground it starts up again. Its scared of heights or something

I have MCP655 Vario with an EK res/top combo. I find it has a bit of a whine at above setting 4. I also have it mounted with a custom bracket and rubber gasket to silence vibrations. I'm pretty sure it's the motor. Haven't tried a controller yet, just running straight off Molex 12v.

You can solder on a fan harness or just crimp on some pins and add a fan connector. Very simple mods if you have the right (and inexpensive) tools thumb.gif

Welcome to the addic... I mean, club biggrin.gif

Which ones did you get?
post #35767 of 107317
I know it's just an AIO but I wanted something maintence free quick and cost effecient to get my youngest sons rig running.
so technically our first modern liquid cooled rig, looking at either the EK , KIT-H3O-LT120 or the XSPC RS240 kit for a sub 200 start for my self and possibly my oldest son.
on a side note how's gigabytes easy tune 6 to play with was gonna take his fx8120 to 4. with it and see..

easy tune just over volts your cpu to get a stable OC. If you do it manually you will get better results.

haha i havent bought them yet, but i plan on a 480 and a 240, maybe a 360 instead of the 240. will have to see if i can fit it without further modification to my 800d. i've finished heavily modifying it i feel.

but i'd need to sell my sr1's to get the funds to do the monstas.
