I'm tired of this. Furball the heat dissipated by a computer radiator is negliable. The air going in versus the air out doesn't change drastically like a car does. I heard the same crap when people were talking about my cobalt tune and the factory intercooler. "oh your going to het heatsoak." how do I get heatsoak if the intercooler is getting constant air while I'm driving?
Anyway the temperature of the air going through the radiators is all dependent on what your room temperature is. for example here in my room at night I can get the air to be as cold as 15 c. Do you really think that once it passes through one radiator the air coming is going to be over 30c. Really???
Read some stuff. Look at info for the rx480 and you will see the change in temperature can be neglected because it's about 2-3 degrees.
Now can you please stop the whole heatsoak crap. I can't take people when they get defensive trying to prove a point but just use google to find a general answer. Sure maybe heatsoak exist but in thermodynamic dynamics there isn't such thing. It's a term created by people.
Besides 600mm of cooling space is always greater than 480mm. Dude it's common sense.
And honestly if you don't like my answer just stop looking at my build.Edited by fshizl - 5/20/11 at 7:18pm
