Cool

Ughhh this is sooooo confusing. Well then in this case, I don't have much to say. BTW Varroa's thick rad is a Thermochill. Proof in link.

NCIX FORUMS - Would this rad be better than the rad in... - Thermochill Pa 120.1 Single 120MM Water ...

Yeah, the difference is in the motherboard heatsinks. If you look at the pic, you can see that the rad is hanging quite far over the motherboard. That isn't possible with the heatsink on the DQ6.

Thanks for the link though, it verifies that a PA will actually fit given the right motherboard.

Eh? I thought the first quote was you thinking of replacing the MCR320 with a PA120.1 at each end. (With the MCR 120 being a typo).

And I don't know how much stock I'd place in that particular Thermochill-MCR320 comparison. It's widely circulated, and the guy who did it is well-regarded, but even Thermochill's own test data doesn't quite agree with it. If you check out the thermal dissipation graphs towards the bottom of the link, you can see that the MCR-220 isn't actually that far below the PA120.2, even with 1200rpm fans.

Yes I was considering it, but it was only an afterthought once I found that the PA 120.1 wouldn't plug in quite the way I wanted. You suggested (and that table pretty well cemented the case) that two 120.1 wouldn't produce better results than the single 320 so I figured I'd leave that alone.

I'm pretty well convinced that I'm going to mount the single in the front with a push/pull and order myself a Fuzion V2. With that in mind, I'm going to put the single on a shelf until I get the V2 in rather than re-doing the loop twice. :)

Sorry I missed this one guys but yes I can confirm this is a thermochill on the back of my case, it is cooling my CPU alone. The 2x120 uptop is cooling my NB and my 2900XT using a coolance full coverage GPU block.

Cross posting this as they were two different discussions and it might get missed if somebody is trying to get a PA120.1 to fit on the lower intake of a Cosmos S....

Coolermaster Cosmos S

It will fit, you just need to pull out a dremmel. (A drill would work as well, but I didin't trust myself not to drill all the way through... :) ).

You could always mount it on the rear exhaust:

I looked at that, but unfortunately the chipset cooling on my DQ6 is in the way.

Did manage to get it in on the bottom though. :)
