    Hey, I was just wondering if I would see much of a difference between a 120.2 and a 140.2 radiator? Would temps be significantly lower or would the difference be negligible? Thanks! :toast:

    Theres minimal temp gains; 10% MAX. You'll gain much more by getting a thicker radiator or 120.3(25% roughly)

    Which do I suggest you ask? Well my friend, Thermochill makes stunningly high performance radiators. Also the HW Labs SR1 series are great too.

    What about if I get 2 120.2 rads, will that be suffecient for a Core i5 750 and possibly a graphics card in the future? Oh, this theoretical arrangement would be paired with an incoming (the whole loop is incoming) 120.1 rad, so keep that in mind. Thanks! :toast:

    Okay, thanks. I think I'll buy one here on the forums and another if it pops up. :) Thanks you guys.
