CM ATCS840 TOP radiator Performance.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

i bought the ATCS840, and i going to move my rig (signature) to it, what i want to know. i see that i have two option for installing the radiator on top:

1. install it on the current 2X230m fans.
2. use the bracket and install it it with 3X120mm fans.

my current setup is push>>pull, i going to do the same with the ATCS840, somebody know what will bring me the best performance ?

>>>air flow>>>
3X120 - RAD - 2X230
OR
3X120 - RAD - 2X120

or its doesn't mater, as the performance different are not critical.

thanks ahead

I don't know how you're going to set it up in 120 to 230 but I think you should stick with a 1:1 ratio of 3x120 fans. It's best in my opinion to have the same amount of airflow going in and out of a radiator than you would with mixing and matching different fans/CFM/pressure. I've never done watercooling before but I feel the same concept applies to CPU heatsinks in push-pull.

I don't think so

I mounted a 140mm fan on the outside of the case and a H50 then the 120mm attached to the H50. (if that makes sense) SEE pIC http://home.comcast.net/~baldwin1285/CC700D/cover30.JPG

and it cooled better then having 2 of those 120s in push/pull.... why? I have no clue but I tried it and it worked great.

So I think that the 230s will push a ton of air and that will be better.
