Default Rad combination, opinions requested

Let's assume flow rate is suitable in either scenario.

Disregard heat load.

Same fans in push/pull

Just a high level question:

Alphacool Monsta 360mm (80mm thick) + 120mm slim rad

vs

2x 360mm slim rads

Which pair would be "better"?

2 x 360mm without a doubt. Radiator thickness has very little impact on performance. Frontal surface area is key.

What lowfat said for sure. Monsta's are only better than other thick rads by a very slim margin, and even then only with fans on 100%. I have 2 of em and honestly, they're a waste of space.
