Best radiator fan options?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
O.k. so I pulled the trigger and purchased Swiftech MCP655 w/speed controller,
ek ddx top rev2 for pump ,silver kill coil, and EK-Supreme HF - Nickel. Planning on getting the gtx480 ek block and the 400 res. I have 3 r4 cooler master fans,I think their 90 cfm's and I want to use 1/2 in. tubing. Also thinking of adding a second GTX 480:

Whats my best radiator/fan option?

Any help is appreciated...thanks.

the 90cfm fans will work
might be a little loud get a fan controller to dial them back and you'll be fine

then you can always turn them up if you need to

Those fans are actually about 68-70CFM, not 90; what radiator are you getting and how much fan noise can you tolerate?

I've been told the GT Xtreme 360 with some low RPM fans are good. Downside, it's £80 of rad and another £70 on fans. I'm getting it with some 1200RPM Gentle typhoons.

I love my RX360, it works well with low and high rpm fans.

The swiftech mcr320 is nice too. Much thinner than the RX.

I'm liking my cooler master R4's. They are quiet even at 100%, and have good static pressure. Good to have rubber damper between rad and shroud though.

Ah I see. In that case an RX360/GentleTyphoon AP-15 (if you can find them; S-Flex G if you can't) combo would be perfect.

A 360 with fans like GentleTyphoons can tackle a CPU+2 GPUs if you need it to.
