And since we're here, generally speaking, how will Black Ice GT Stealth rads perform with 800pm S-Flex(s)? I have one 240 rad and one 120 rad.
Generally speaking, Black Ice radiators are designed for high air pressure. 800 RPM fans don't provide the optimal pressure for these radiators. In addition, using a 240mm and a 120mm radiator is generally worse than using one 360mm radiator, but better than using only the 240mm. Performance will doubtless be acceptable though. A better choice would be the Thermochill 120.3, as it is designed to work with lower pressure. But as you stated, you already have the radiators.And since we're here, generally speaking, how will Black Ice GT Stealth rads perform with 800pm S-Flex(s)? I have one 240 rad and one 120 rad.
Thanks for your response. Fortunately, I was planning to use the MCW350 instead of the CPX Pro. Hopefully the MCW350 will be quieter. At least I know the CPX Pro vibrates alot. thanks again.e v o wrote:I have the CPX Pro and the Db-1(CPX-1) which is like the little brother of the CPX Pro. The CPX Pro made too much noise via the vibrations for me to use. I've had a CPX-1 die on me after about a year though. The CPX-1/Db-1 is very quiet if placed on some anti-vibration stuff (ie petra's gel stuff). I also have a P180 housing my system.
Sorry for the late response and thanks for your input. I just got my MCP350 up and running and I can confirm your findings.thatguyX wrote:i'm running the mcp350 with XSPC RX120 and 240 rads. The only noise I'm hearing (I think) is some wind noise thru the rads (both push) and my harddrives. The fans are noiseblocker 1200rpm rans running at 7V and 5 V. I have the pump mounted on Petra's gel stuff with an XSPC res top and if it was making any noise, it's definitely overpowered by the noise from my 2 HDDs (Seagate Barracuda 1TB & WD Caviar 320GB)
