Which Radiator to use?

I'm currently in the process of saving up for a new case and watercooling gear to cool my Q6600. I've been looking at both the XSPC RS360 and the XSPC R120-T, both of which are £29 at watercoolinguk.

I know the Black Ice GTX and Thermochill series of radiators are better, but i'm try to keep to a budget.

So which radiator is better? The RS360 or the R120-T?

hey mate,

Give the guys at Aqua PC a ring / mail. Tell them what you would like to cool and they'll guide you through.

If you can't afford a Thermochill or rads of similar price then my recommendation goes to the Swiftech MCR-320.

The R120-T is a better rad, its not far off being double the thickness of the RS360.

yeah it seems like a great price WCUK have got going, so it is a double pass rad? I think it is, so I would go for that, migh even got myself one for my Antec 900, though where it will go...

Between those the black ice and the thermochill perform the same.

Get whichever is cheapest

R120-T is a blinding rad, I had a 3.8Ghz E6600 and 8800GTS 512MB in the same loop on one and temps were excellent. Considering the price it's an absolute steal.

From what the speccs say.. I'ld go with the 2x120 instead of that 1x360. Not only because it's easier to place, but also because it seems to be able to bleed of more heat from the 120-D....
