Alphacool or Magicool?
Hi guys, I have a Barrow Doubel-S 360 and I'm getting a new radiator. I'm not sure of the Barrow performance and I ordered an Alphacool XT45 360, but there were shipping problems and I'm getting a refund.
I was going to get the same Alphacool XT45 360, or a ST30 480. But then I saw the Magicool, which is cheaper and, for my surprise, is better than the Alphacool according to ExtremeRigs (https://www.xtremerigs.net/2015/03/2...ator-review/5/
Is ExtremeRigs reliable? Does anyone have a Magicool and had previous Alphacools to attest to it? The review indicates that the difference would not be noticeble unless you are really pushing it, but if they both perform kind of the same and the Magicool is cheaper, I might get a Magicool 480 45mm for the same price of the Alphacool slim one.
From the review, the Magicool is just simpler, but since I'm spending money, I'm looking for performance.
