triple rad? - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Then I suggest that you use the fans to pull the air out rather than push

So is a triple rad a better deal for the price and my needs? Also, what would be a good triple rad?

you can get a little more heat out with a larger core, but if you're still using a single pass radiator it's not going to be that much... even more so if you switch to slower fans... the airplex evo 360 from aqua-computer is probably the highest performing rad you're going to find in a 3x120mm form factor, you'll just have to find a distributor if your german isn't very good...

Supposedly the Black Ice Pro is better for slower fans...at least that's what people try to tell me. I find that the "flashy" companies' (thermaltake, SilenX, Antec, etc.) fans are just as loud as a higher CFM Panaflo. If it's too loud get a fan controller, but don't limit your cooling capability.
