Hmmm... while there is much conjecture on this matter - and plenty of debate as to whether cost should be considered in the equation... I tend to consider these results as well as these results as the most authoritative (despite Martin not testing the Monsta - his results of the other sizes mostly agree with Bundymania's).

The tl;dr of both can pretty much be stated as this: if you're running your fans faster than 1200RPM you can get ~10% better cooling at ~3% less flow rate for each Monsta as opposed to a UT60. If you're not - you will either get no better cooling or possibly even worse (esp. if your fans are ~600-800RPM). When you consider in most cases (unless you got them on a sale, special, etc...) the cost is ~20% more - this based on FCPU's current pricing, so this certainly varies... and you don't really have any value worth it.

Don't get me wrong... if I (for whatever reason) had an application where only one radiator could be used, and somehow despite that fact there was still enough room for that radiator to be a Monsta... then I think there is a compelling argument. However, if you have a choice between 3 Monstas or 4 UT60s - you'll still do better with the latter and not have spent much more. Or better yet, use 4 XT45's and have money left over for fittings - plus not be pulling your hair out trying to get them to fit in your case.

Naturally this doesn't apply to owners of a TX... but even in an STH it isn't a simple matter to just throw a 105mm+ worth of radiator and fan everywhere there's a mounting point for one. smile.gif

And I bought black thinking I could always get a white one later on down the road... doh.gif

I don't use any filters, I just use air to clean out computer regularly. I feel that even the best filters restrict airflow to much.

Any of you guys have photos of your SM8 or M8 on your desk, or of your entire battlestation?

Awesome thank you.

I think I've decided on the SM8, but now I can't choose between black and white. Black would fit in with the rest of the components in and around my desk, but that white is so clean. And an all black themed build would look pretty awesome with a white backdrop.

If you want white, you better order it fast, Caselabs have said they are going to suspend that color indefinitely, if they haven't already.
