I have an EK Coolstream 360, but havn't hooked it up yet. I found a review on google. Just type in EK Coolstream 360 and it's the first page that comes up. I'd find it for you, but i'm on my mobile and it's a pain to surf the net with.

From memory it has decent cooling capacity although not the best. It has a decent flow rate so it won't hamper your water flow. The only real negative comment was somethig about how many fins per inch it has.

I guess the same would apply to the 240 version as well.

Thanks jack. What is the best 240 rad on the market today?

Does this Res/Pump combo push enough water for what i want to do?

best is very subjective.

Performance or Peace? if you want performance get a gtx black ice rad, if you want peace go with a xspc rad(rx) if you want cheap price/performance get a swiftech mcr..

some really high rpm fans for the black ice(not STEALTH model... those are for low speed fans), something like gentle typhoons for the xspc.

I would just go with the xspc 355 bay, and a 355 or two. I say 355 over the other one because the 355 has more head pressure since you are going to have two gpu blocks this is more important.

Check the link on my sig. I'm very happy with the setup (it worked folding 1 year 7/24 without any issue -total downtime is 5 days I guess lol). I guess heat dump on the 570s are approximately same if not less than my gtx275s. One thing to notice, if I would set it up again I would go separate loops for gpus and cpu. Good luck on your build and don't forget to post a log of it with a lot of photos

Thanks guys. Was thinking about it and i'm going to keep my H70 for my 2600K and just watercool the Cards for now. Still considering going with a pair of 240's. Any complaint's about these?

@Maximous its "a lot" not "alot"
don't listen to him.

you could add another five 120.4 Rads to your loop but temps will only drop by 1C.

There is no point. a good 120.3 with push and pull can cool 1KW easy.


if anyone tells me I'm wrong. your stupid. i have a Dual 40mm Radiator cooling my xbox 360 which gives out about 195W and it never goes over 40C.

I just ordered one of those yesterday. From everything i heard it is a great rad. If you want to save some cash jab-tech is cheaper than frozencpu by a good amount. And promo code 'facebook' saved the cost of shipping.

Nope, great rads. I would get a quad or a triple for the sake of keeping the loop smaller. Less tubing, the better.

As shiv15 suggested, try other sites. Jab-tech, SVC, Sidewindercomputers, or Koolertek sometimes have items much less than FrozenCPU or Performance-PCs - including shipping.

Not being rude, but usually when people buy two smaller rads its to fit them in there case. It's cheaper to buy bigger, so if it's possible it's always nice like you said.

I usually skip your posts because of that kind of mentality. I mean blanket statements and if your wrong everyone else is stupid? Come on? You don't even list what radiator you have.

Now half the point of water cooling is to keep things quiet, which means slower fans instead of screamers and they can only cool so much before you start sacrificing temps. If you have a black ice rad, you can get away with putting a great deal on it.

Captain Picard, you will be golden with a gpu only loop and 2 240 rads.
