No one, even want to take a guess?

why just pull on one and push pull on the other? also why are you limiting your selection to just those two?

cant really answer your question because you dont have enough info. if your fans were like low cfm and low rpm then a push/pull would work better.

if you had high cfm like 100+ then i would put my money on the gtx just because you'll be able to move more air over a larger surface area.

This will be the 2nd rad inside an Antec 1200, these are the only 2 options as there are no other rads that are 120.2 that come in at 277mm in lenght.

I have a max distance of ~55mm between the back of the chassis and and pre existing tubing that cant be moved.

Fan will likly be Antec Tri Cool Blue LEDs@ 79CFM.

Come on guys, you could have checked the Signature to find out that im not one of the uneducated on these forums,

The XSPC RS240 is 277 mm tall, but 58 mm deep.
Your max distance is 55 mm, the GTX is 54mm deep, can't add any fans.
The GT is 30mm deep, not going to be able to add (4) 25mm fans in push/pull to it.
A forum sig that lists computer parts is not an indicator of one's knowledge.

why dont you just route your tubing to the outside and mount your rad on the back? plus why are you needing another radiator?

If your so educated on this subject remind me why are you asking us? Also check my sig!!! Does this make me smarter? LOL
I would say go with the rad that best suits your idea of to noisy. They will both perform well if used with the correct fans. ;)

Sorry, i have 80mm (approx), so its either the GT in Push/Pull or the GTX in Pull. I need another rad because im adding more to the loop, and i have no intrest in mounting the rad outside of the chassis.

You have the room for a push/pull config, but are still worried about space? Are you matching up the rads with the correct fin placement and kind of fans that need to be used?
