Default Best 480 Rad

Hey HWC,

Depends if fan noise is an issue to you? If you like lower speed fans, I prefer the Hardware Labs Black Ice SR-1 480. Its a great rad, with low FPI and an excellent build quality. I have three in my case combined with four NoiseBlocker PL-2's on each one, and they are just beautiful.

I guess those thicker XSPC rads are pretty good too, but the quality of the SR-1 is what wins my vote

Yea, I plan to be using noctua fans so the rad you recommended would be perfect for me. I was looking for a low fpi rad too.

Thanks!
