GTX360 with AP-15

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
i was going to purchase the rx or the rs360 from the xspc as from reviews i have seen them perform really well with low noise fans, i got to admit that my gtx360 is doing its job but it requires 3 san aces to run them, is that really necessary? i have my 3 ap-15 from my previous air cooling building sitting there and i am thinking replacing the san aces with the ap-15 will reduce the noise without increasing the temps? can that be achieved with the gtx360, or because it needs the high static pressure, shall i stay with the san aces?

i have my fan controller lowering down the rpm of the san aces, but i have always preferred the sound of an ap-15, both when running Linx will be at 1850rpm lets say, i like to get them even lower when browsing the web or even playing games as the temps will stay around 50C for both cpu and gpu

thanks guys and sorry for any grammar or spelling mistakes, Greek guy biggrin.gif

Nope, AP15s are more than enough fan power for that radiator. smile.gif If you need the extra cooling performance, use the San Aces.

so the gtx360 and rx360 will show the same performance under the ap-15? and will the san aces perform better at 1600rpm than the ap-15 at 1850rpm?

thanks for the fast reply

They should perform about the same with the San Aces at 1600RPM and the AP15s at 1850RPM.

As for the radiators, no, the GTX360 will DEFINITELY perform better than the RX360.

gtx360 will perform better than the rx360 with the AP-15? thought it was the other way around, maybe i will do some benchies with the AP-15 to compare them

thanks a lot +rep(oops i can't :?)

Nope, it will perform better than the RX360. Below 1500RPM or so, the RX360 will perform better with the AP15, but I would only think you'd want that if you wanted real silence.

With only your 470 and i7 in the loop the temperature difference between the AP-15s and the San Aces will be very small, probably in the range of 1-2C. This is because your water-air delta is already quite low, so the fan speed does have as large of an effect as it would if you had a 240 or 120 radiator.

You'll be totally fine with the AP-15 fans.

My GTX240 seems to do pretty well with GT-15s in the push/pull setup I have. Since you're planning to get 3x fans, I've found the GTX performs better with the GTs in pull on the hot side.

thanks a lot for all your info, will do some tests tomorrow and will then change the fans and do the exact same test to check difference and compare noise levels
