2011-2012 Radiator Comparison Following Eric's lead, this is the full collection of results from the V2 Radiator Bench or let us call it 2011-2012 Radiator Comparison. When new results go up, this post will be updated. In this compilation post, the overall performance overview will be slightly simpler, with the full in-depth look available in the individual reviews or data supplements. Continue reading...
Triple Radiator Comparison V2 Welcome to the second round or V2 of the Triple Radiator Performance Comparison. Version 2 is going to be a bit different, we're going to focus on the compiled data for all radiators instead of how the first Triple Comparison was just a rehash of the individual Radiator reviews with only a few comparison plots. Yes, there will be less of my blabbering narration of more photos, tables, charts and plots... Continue reading...

HW Labs GTX360 data supplement for our V2 Radiator testing. Not a full review, just the data and recap that feeds the radiator comparison.

Following Eric’s lead, this is the full collection of results from the V2 Radiator Bench or let us call it 2011-2012 Radiator Comparison. When new results go up, this post will be updated. In this compilation post, the overall performance overview will be slightly simpler, with the full in-depth look available in the individual reviews or data supplements.

Yes, you read the title correctly, we looped up a Thermaltake Triple on the radiator test bench to see how it would stack up against our mainstream rads. This is not a review of any sort, we just wanted the performance data from the TT triple. Needless to say, I am not recommending the use of Thermaltake liquid cooling components.

Next in line for release of the retesting is our Thermochill PA120.3 15mm. I denote the PA with the 15mm since the original used 24.5mm fan spacing. To the point, this is a data supplement for the original review of the Thermochill PA120.3. We completely overhauled our test bench and procedure and retested the PA120.3. You will find some general photos and the individual results.

This is a data supplement for the original review of the Swiftech MCR320. We completely overhauled our test bench and procedure and retested the MCR320. You will find some general photos and the individual results using the V2 test procedure. Like I said, just a data supplement, short and to the point.

The Airplex line from Aqua Computer has achieved several different versions and a various configurations. The Revolution is the current radiator in the Airplex line, it brings a unique and performance packed design to the test bench.

I first set my eyes on the Coolgate 360 on the show floor at CES 2011, and the colorful box started out my inspection. The color box looks ready for retail shelves and looked quite good on display in the CES booth.

As I mentioned in the intro, the G-Changer is not a copy of a similarly named radiator, the only thing similar is the name. The performance of the G-Changer as we witnessed is targeted for medium speed fans versus higher speed, which is probably where the bulk of us run our fans.

Our norm here at Skinnee Labs is to use triple radiators as the test and comparison model; keeping with tradition, we will put our spotlight on the TA120.3. Do not fret, we plan to run thermals and pressure drop on all of them… we want the data too. For now, let us focus on the TA120.3 and dive into the specs…

XSPC has made a few changes to the popular RX series; we have a quick run-down of the changes along with a set of both pressure drop and thermal tests. Since this is just an update, we will cover the changes that affect you the most. This article will not be heavy on the photos, I seemed to have misplaced the shots I snapped when the radiator arrived and it is now tied up on the second bench in the lab. Next time I tear down the loop I will be sure to add in more photos.

    Tuniq TX-2 and TX-4 hit our testbed and fare pretty well but there are concerns with pricing and batch variance.
