Get an Hardware Labs SR1-240 :thumb: Nothing wrong with the performance of Feser, it's just that the quality of build on the HWL radiators are far superior than that of the Feser. The Feser rads have a bad finish, or atleast on the one I own, and the few that my friends own as well. Also, the fins are verry delicate. Hell, the HWL is bult like a tank.


Good to hear that you removed that teflon tape :haha:

:sad::sad: I m getting broke-r and broke-r................ just got one from NCIX to avoid the hassle getting one from US..... 1 left in NCIX, lol hopefully i got the good one.......if only Daz sells the HWL products as well, i woulda gotten one from him instead of waiting for shipping and probably delaying my watercooling setup:blarg:

rads don't make that big of a difference at all were talking about a few degrees at most. i run car rads over high performance triple rads for computers before i spend a truck on a rad.
Can you notice the difference i can measure it with digital gauges but it never effects my overclock at all. hence why i am running a swiftech mcr320 it handles my overclocked 920 just fine. been water cooling for almost 4 or 5 years the easiest way to judge is size the bigger the rad the more it can handle simple. check out back in black from "squeetard"

So i just flushed my rad tonight.... hopefully i got this one right "hot" water from the tap for 10 mins, then a bottle of iso 99% alcohol, then distilled water at the end... right now i've sealed both holes with the bleeding/filling barbs i got from Daz. Will update tomorrow night... long weekend with my wife's siblings = more time to finish up this watercooling... LOL

How long did this take you? Did you just zoom through it or did you let it soak a bit, and shake it like crazy? If it comes out clean, I guess it doesnt matter :thumb: However, if you let that 99% soak, you would probably find a lot more flux as it would loosen it up a lot more - but so will running water through it in a closed loop :ph34r:

Hummm running them through the tap water... 10 mins.... soaking with the iso99%...1 min i guess.. haha i didnt want to "eat" through the rad.... then i believe i shook them like crazy before the iso or during the iso.. i forgot.. then i just poured in distilled water...

I see clean transparent fluid though.. didnt see anything in there...humm i will redo it once again later... i ran out of that iso99%.. so... what's the steps again?

running hot tap water through open loop, then iso 99%... let it soak for how long? then shake that thang... then distilled water in open loop... that's it right?

+1. :thumb: I totally agree.

With fan speed under 1800-2000rpm, they are all the same. Maybe 1/2 degre better or worst here and there, but... This graph says it all. SLI + OCed i7 920. Does the Feser at 2X the cost of the MCR320 is worth around 1/2 degree (0.7 precisely at 1800rpm)?

I now use MCR320 only with Gentle Typhoon at 1850 rpm. Price/performance ratio can't be beat. And the GTs are silent.
