As for the AP-15s, I run six of them at 1850 rpm all the time, four on the Monsta, and two on an XSPC RX 240, and also find them acceptable for their sound level vs performance.
I know that it sounds like a total noob question, but i use the term "best" for the rad ans fans as a combination. I think that i cant fit 140mm fans at the bottom of the TJ07 thats why i chose the 480. But also i didnt know that i can fit a 480 monsta in there. Can i really fit it with the psu in place? But with the monsta i ll also need push/pull right? Are you happy with 4xAP only? Is it better to get UT60 480 with 4xAP15, Monsta 480 with 4xAP15 or Monsta 480 with 8xsome cheaper also good performing but not noisy fans (is there space for this)?
Not a noob question at all, it's a good question!
I say "best" as well sometimes, it isn't a crime!
I just don't want to claim something as best, because that varies depending on the individual.
Have a look in my build log, I explained how initially I was going to use the 80mm thick 480 Monsta, then tried a slim rad, then decided to use the Monsta.
I did have to move the psu over a few mm, which required moving it back slightly, but I did manage to work it out.
If you want to avoid that hassle, a UT60 would be a great way to go, imo. There was no way I was able to have a push-pull fan arrangement on the Monsta, but I have been very pleased with a single set of AP-15s mounted to the outside of the rad, the temps. have been great in this 90F+ heat we've been having. I'm super happy with push-only!
I chose to stick with a push fan arrangement on my front-mounted XSPC RX240 rad as well.
Imo, I would suggest getting the UT60 480 rad if you want a good thick rad, without the hassles of the 80mm thick Monsta rad.
The difference in temps., if any, would be minimal at best.
