    hi gang.
    have a question for you.
    which would be better
    GTX 120.4 rad
    or
    GTX 120.3 and GTX 120.2 rads [i just happen to have these, but can sell]
    or would it be pretty much the same
    single loop
    THX

    Well I have to say any time you have MORE of a RAD ie 120x4 you get more cooling . I curently have a 3x120 and a 2x120 hooked up and seen a big change once I went from the 2x120 and added the 3x120 to my loop . So in my case more is better .

    Logically more is better all depends where you will mount and the space available.

    The more you have the closer your temps will get towards ambient temperature, if it will all fit, pack in as 'much' rad as you can IMO.

    Well you have what I have hooked up so I would just stick with that . Unless you just want one rad and then I would go with the quad rad . But as it is you have 5x120 and that is one more than just a 4x120 . So more is better IMHO . :toast:
