As nice as they look, the Aquacomputer radiators with those round tubes are sub-par performers. Radiators with flattened roll formed tubes move heat better.

You're assuming that thicker must be better, but that is not necessarily correct. In actual usage many thin rads will outperform thicker rads simply because the thicker rads require higher fan speeds. So, the thicker rad might be better with the fans above 1500 rpm.....but how often would anyone want that?

Yes. You already own it. You would get far more benefit from adding a rad than you would by replacing what you have. It is also doubtful that your current setup is reaching the point of heat saturation, but an additional rad would allow for more cooling with lower noise.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

What are you planning to cool btw?
If you want silence with low rpm fans and still have low temps then bigger rad is the answer.
I used prior to my AMS 840 a alphacool 360 Monsta rad and a xspc rc480 rad and my AMS 840 trumps them both temps wise. Sure the AMS 840 is bigger but I have no regrets and others who use it don't either. There are some conflicting reviews about the AMS rads one says it's mediocore while others tell it's really good. Real world application with my AMS 480 on my fx-9590 is at 100% load 51c, idle is 27c. My previous rad was a xspc rc480 idle was around 31c - 33c at same room temp.

As some one mentioned add another (cheaper) rad to your existing setup that should do the trick as well. There are many good rads for around 90 bucks or cheaper. And save the money for something else for your wc or pc.

Hi,
Not sure what space this saves it needs a reservoir anyway just get a pump reservoir combo it would take up much more space than just a reservoir does.
Simplifies pump too when not if the pump goes out get a D5 forget the rest.

You have that Swiftech's water combo? You can add radiator to it? I saw that watercooling radiator review couple days a go. I would go Koolance 30 FPI 30mm rads if you doing push/pull if not then Hardware Labs GTS. I like thin rads coz they don't take much space and performing well at low speeds.
