Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

hey guys , another quesion i can not find on the net easy

 

i am looking for radiator 360, for my o11d with silent operation for most cases,

if it is possible with performance when needed, probaly can't have both

 

but there are so many, from the past i know black ice is good type of rad.

i never had them but people talked about koolance and black ice 

but  there are more brands now and what once are good

also hwlabs have black ice and black ice nemesis what is the difrents in those ?

and why is ek rated lower than hwlabs for watercooling,

i want a trustable brand, with good performance,

hwlabs use copper fins but what about their water pipes, 

where ek uses alu fins and copper pipes if i am correct

For my first water loop (in sig, avatar)I went with:

 

Black Ice Nemesis L-Series 420

Black Ice Nemesis 280GTS® XFLOW

Corsair Hydro X Series XR5 140mm (HWLabs is the OEM)

 

They work great for low speed fans.

Nothing wrong with the XFLOW. It worked better for my layout.

 

The L-series is more narrow than the other series, and can be more restrictive i guess, but it's what would fit in my case and it seems to work great even at low pump speeds so W/E.

 

The HWLabs Rads are all copper.

 

Anyway, HWLabs is a trusted brand with good performance. EK Rads are fine too, but not as good. Not sure if you'd notice the difference...
