why if I may ask, as you can see that the others are cheaper by 20USD and the other by 10USD.

I see the RX360 is 63mm thick!!! holy *****.

It's going to depend what fans (speed) you want to use. I'd go with the Black Ice if you are using high RPM fans and the RX if you are using low RPM fans. So it comes down to your tolerance for noise over performance.

The RX360. It's the best radiator available for sub 2000 RPM fans anyways.

Yes, I agree the RX360 is generally the better option; this is what I was trying to say. Just a lot more versatile, the black ice only beats it with 2000+ RPM fans which would start to get noisy and the performance gains would be negligible.

He can consider the Swiftech MCR320 as well. The performance is almost on par with the RX360 across all fan RPM range and it's much cheaper. Not as glamorous as the other rads but cheap and a solid performer.

dollar for dollar the swiftech 320qp cant be beat in price or performance

sometimes something cheaper is the way to go
I have a hard time believing it so I just bought several rads and after trying them I can say the swiftech did just about the same as any of them for the same system

post #10 of 13
I was in the same dilemma as yourself when I was getting ready to purchase the components for my loop. I went with the Swiftech MCR 320qp. It was considerably cheaper and read many times that it performs great. After the fact, i do see why its cheap- holes for mounting fans are a tad off.

If I had more money- I would have gone with the RX360 or the EK rad.
Great choice on pump too. Good luck with build
