    so im starting to build a second computer and need some help picking out radiators

    im thinking of getting a 480 and a 240 and single looping it on 1 2600k oc'ed to 4.8 and 2 gtx580's oc'ed as well

    the case im using is a tj07 (for now, unless murdermods comes out with somthing i like better) and both rads along with 2 mpc35x pumps are going into the bottom

    parts i have:
    1 ek hf supreme nickle/plexi
    2 ek gtx580 full cover wb nicle/plexi
    2 ek gtx580 backplates
    ek dominator wb nickle/plexi
    2 mpc35x pumps
    all manner of BP fittings (1/2)
    primochill clear lrt 3/8id 5/8od
    ** waiting for a motherboard cover for the asus maximus iv extreme

    what i need is the best 480 and 240 radiator that have a good balance between performance and silence, i'll be using using fans with mid-high rpm

    thanks for any help!!

    hello mate, i water-cool a I7 930 + gtx580 with a single 360 radiator and get some great results but i would not advice this if you intend to overclock.. the 480 + 280 idea is the way to go..the problem with the tj07 is once you fit the 480rad the psu+240 rad will limit the air flow to it :( or hot air will be fed to it... if you would like any further advice please buz me and ill do my best


    as for rads with air flow... the tfc monsters are the best for low noise as very low rpm works great with them.. high rpm makes no difference at all. but they are very thick

    heres mine

    thanks for the replies!

    @damien - very nice build there! i've seen people place 480's + 120's together in the bottom and not have issues with airflow, both sides of the bottom of the tj07 are both meshed. i plan on puting the 480's fans to pull in cold air and the 240's fans to push the air out. if necessary i'll switch out the mesh for a less tightly woven mesh or take it out completely. i don't think that a 240 should be that much of a bother, just have to make sure it all fits!!
