New watercooling build. Need a professional advice. - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Yeah, because the radiator FPI is so great, it needs higher spinning fans to be effective. It's higher FPI it will be less effective with lower RPM fans and will create more turbulence, which in turn creates more noise. The 480 is also somewhat easier to manage with a lower FPI.

There's a point in which having more rad becomes somewhat redundant, anything over a 480 would be so. I have a RX360 in push pull cooling a 4.4GHz 920 and a 5970, so a 480 should handle a 2600K and 2x570 in SLi easily.

Just chiming in here, as I'm a WC noob as well, what about swiftech rads? Where would they lay in performance-wise compared to the XSPC and BlackIce rads?

Swifty rads are pretty good, this should help you out

You are so awesome! Thanks! +Reppers! Looks like Swiftech is pretty balanced..... And the reviewer takes a lot of time and effort into his reviews and isn't an arrogant jackass.

Sweet Link. Bookmarked!

Thanks for reply. It's great that you are saticfied with your rad. I think that GTX570 is hotter then 5770, and I will run higher voltages on the CPU (I thinking about 1.4V) and GPU. So I am sure that I need more cooling power.

I want to run fans on 800-1000 rpm while gaming (folding can use higher rpm). And the larger rad will do it's job better I think.

So the question is - which exactly rad I should choose from 480 or 560 models.

No worries! Glad I could help

Skinnee labs have some of the best (if not the best, I'd say the best) WC'ing gear tests out there. His results are very in depth and his methodology is really good too.

Well if you want low noise you will need more rad space so it depends on where you plan on putting your rads. Basically you trade noise with performance and and performance with space. So if you are looking for noise and performance where space isnt an issue then you want a large rad with low rpm fans. If space is a concern then you will need a smaller rad with faster(nosier) fans.
