Hey, I am looking to retire my 240mm/120mm radiator pair and buy a 480mm. The general radiator I'm eying is the XSPC RX480 http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_p...

But I'm not sure what to do here, are there any other 480 rads you would advise to get other than the RX? The budget is about 120 - less is preferred.

I just bought this radiator and I am replacing a 480 with this one , the reason being that it's 80mm thick and will cool the two GTX 580's just as good but take up less space.

I'm also going to put three of these on it and they are said to be loud but they also are rated for 215cfm so they push a low of air. On the 480 I had the low noise ones and they were quiet but they don't push as much air.

I'd get the newer line of AX rads from XSPC, they are supposed to be 40mm thick and according to XSPC themselves, perform better than the RX series.

I am definitely waiting for the AX series. They also come in a silver version which I think is amazing looking.

Both of these are good rads as well, I have two swiftech 240mm and I just added two swiftech 360's to the loop in order to add to the cooling ability. If you’re going to get another rad why not add it to the loop there is always a way to mount them somewhere or build a box for them


I will probably keep my 120mm rad but there is no way to use the 240 without external mount. I'm using a tj07.

I'd love to see the tests and comparisons before I run out to buy one. They do look quite nice, though.

Well I mounted mine on the side back plate side by side on that plate of the case with 5” standoff’s it worked pretty well.
