Best slim 240mm radiator and best 120mm radiator (any thickness)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm finally setting up my custom loop, right now I'm looking at these guys for

 

240mm -

Ekwb slimited 240mm rad (26mm)

Vs

Magicool crossflow (27mm)

 

120mm is where I'm stumped, may as well get a thick one as I have the space but I'm not sure what to get.  

 

The ekwb pe 120 is currently half off on amazon, not sure if it's worth it though, recommendations appreciated.

Depends what type of fans you use.

Some radiators are better for low rpm quiet fans.


My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

Still deciding on the fans, I've got a couple of 2150rpm gentle typhoons, a noctua P.O. 2 shit rgb fans and 2 deepcool P.O. fans.

 

i.e a bit of everything xD I may get a set of fans later, probably hd120s or inwin aurora fans.

 

Or some slim noctua fans...

Lol don't know

Based on this chart, I went for HWlabs GTS. Although it is specifically for a 360mm rad, I couldn't come up with a reason why it would translate differently for a 240 mm. EK slim are pretty bad supposedly, whereas the PE variant is pretty good.

The SE360 is the worst performer out of these tested at all fan rpms. I think the PE radiators perform very well, but if you can afford to do so, there are better options out there. Unless if someone can think of reasons why the SE240 would scale differently than the other companies, I would assume that the 240mm variant would be equally bad.
