Picking these two rads, good choices?

Hey guys, so I'll be running a dual rad (360 and 240) in my 800D. I'm looking for a quieter rig so I was looking for lower FPI rads and lower RPM fans.

I haven't heard a lot of hype about these radiators on this forum, but from the reviews and specs I see, these are a very good choice.

I was thinking about mounting this 360 on the inside top: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/9433/ex-rad-163/Black...

and this 240 rad on the inside bottom: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/9431/ex-rad-162/Black...

I've already done the bottom case mod to allow a 240 rad, so there is no problem there, and the 360 should fit with default settings- so I'm good to go.

Do you guys think this is a good way to go?

Thanks!

From what I have read those are pretty restrictive radiators, so make sure you have a pump with good head pressure. What all is in your loop?

Grr I was afraid that they would have a high pressure drop. Well, I'm running a CPU (CPU-370 which is a low restrictive block, but flow hungry so I should be fine there), a GPU block (haven't decided yet), and the thermo fusion heatsink on the Maximus V Formula board (which I'm not sure if there are any results on its design yet). In the future I would like to add another video card in SLI so I'll need something able to handle that too. I need a good pump too, suggestions?

amuffin, if you don't mind me asking, what makes the XPSC so much better than the SR1?

Nevermind, I found my answer in Skinneelabs triple radiator review. Thanks!

RX is much thicker and performs slightly better than the EX, so you can use lower RPM fans.
