  1. The thicker radiator should be able to dissipate more heat more easily. For better temps, go with the RX240.

    Why get a set and not just pick the parts yourself? Is there a vast price advantage or something?

    if I do this I save $100+ rather than buying all the parts separately. I'm on a budget

    The rad is the best choice get the bigger rad since the diffrences on the cpu blocks are usually only a degree or two where as the diffrence in the rads is like an extra 200 watts of heat dissapation......

  5. you can always take the loop down in 6 months and add a diffrent block and dont forget a kill coil if its an open loop as pure silver will keep the loop crystal clear and clean.
