    Hello friends of the wet element,


    in fact, one could advance already come to the following conclusion: The size is still important! :)
    Now, however, the technique is essential, otherwise all the radiators of this test would be on a level of performance.
    But first things first: As the reader has already been easily noticed, is what this review to the new
    Power superclass of the heat exchanger, namely internally for sheeting radiators, for the increasingly popular 140mm fan! This fact is in a relatively quieter background noise while maintaining good cooling performance as the previously
    so popular for 120mm fan radiators founded. As a rough rule of thumb one can say: A rad fitted with 3 x 140mm radiator fans of the new generation is about the power of a Quadradiator, which is designed for 4 x 120mm fans. Since many case manufacturers have already for some time for 140mm fan designed models in the portfolio,
    It was only a matter of time, until you can buy suitable heat exchanger for this increase in performance.
    As the demands and desires of the users are very diverse, I have decided to not only one size in
    take my test box, but take into account almost all available Radiators for the big fan of!


    Speaking test field, the ranks of the radiator to be tested are joined by the following models:

    The company's hardware labs for many years successfully established and offers a wide selection of high quality radiators
    in many sizes and variations. One feature distinguishes this from all the models: The workmanship is first class!
    The new SR1 Radis are, fortunately for both 120mm and 140mm fan available from single-to Quadradiator.
    So far, Black Ice Radiators have been due to their dense fin density rather rapidly rotating fan beyond 800 rpm. optimized and were able to heat from other manufacturers in Europe, especially in the popular low revs hard to argue in comparative tests. This event can now be safely placed with the SR1 series on the file, because with this new radiator series hardware labs now promising products brought to market, which were also optimized, especially for less air flow! A peculiarity is the different distance from the fan blades: On the side without
    The two threaded connection is down this much larger, which represents a kind of shroud, ie the dead center under the
    Fan hub is significantly reduced, which leads to better overall performance! Of course I have the fans on both sides
    assembled to determine the differences. On the page with "Shroud" stood a better fan speed according to the Delta-T
    Value of max. 0.7-up! In my results tables, I have both the best value, ie, with assembly on the "Shroudside" is used.
    Like the 480s SR1 Radi, can convince even the models for 140mm. The performance is very good and are processed by the
    there is currently nothing better on the radiator market.
    The SR-1 series white at first glance like: the matte black finish is flawless, all threads have been immaculately produced, and the fins have turned out very coarse meshed, so as mentioned below is ideal for slow-spinning fans and accordingly noise! For this test, I was kindly of SR1 560 and SR1 280 of the company www.caseking.de sent. The SR1 420 Model I got from www.ac-shop.de provided.
    My thanks goes also to Mr. Wilbert Yuque from hardware labs.

    Thermochill PA 140.3 Triple Radiator


    [​IMG]






    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]




    Specifications:

    - Color: matte black
    - G 3 / 8 "connectors
    - Tank: brass; fins: copper
    - Weight: about 1.82 kilograms
    - Dimensions (LxWxH): 480 x 142 x 62mm
    - Price: about EUR 110




    Almost as a living legend, one could describe the radiators in the UK-based company Thermo Chill.
    In the past, many test victories worldwide have been retracted, but there were also some points for improvement.
    The finish was sometimes left to be desired at times and some users reported by impurities in the interior, which
    during flushing of new Rads came to light. Other features of the thermal radiators Churchill are the two connecting thread,
    which runs in more exotic G 3 / 8 "thread adapter, and can therefore be in most cases a necessity.
    Furthermore, the so-called hole size for the fan was slightly larger than that of heat exchangers of the competitors, so that one normal
    Not able to use radiator panels for the Case integration and was dependent on specific panels.
    The finish is with my pattern out to be much better than it used to in the TC Rads was the case and offers
    no reason for complaint.
    At the held in the English language leaflets to rinse with warm water before first use is recommended to
    to liberate the Rad of any production residues. It was struck directly at the first flush or almost clear water
    from 140.3 to appear, even at this point was thus improved compared to older models of anything!
    The 420s Rad from the house can convince Thermo Chill completely in this test of the performance and can be the first place in
    This radiator size to win for themselves! The only downer at the moment poor availability in Germany was
    mentioned but in neighboring countries, fortunately, these models during www.highflow.nl and www.it-service.be available!

    The Magicool radiators out of the house are known for their good performance at a relatively low price. Here and there
    may miss a thread not be ok, but this one takes as preisleistungsbewusster buyers like to purchase. Also in
    This test can convince the models of Magicool. From the performance for many applications and has sufficient
    3 sizes available. Due to the low mounting depth can the Radis platsparend and unobtrusively in many housing
    . integrate On the housing market have been some housing available in the Model 280s without the modifications
    to assemble, more will surely follow soon.

    TFC Monsta Lite 420/360 Radiator



    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] [​IMG]


    From TFC - The Feser Company reached me the prototype of a Monsta Lite radiator.
    Prototype because of possible changes to the final retail version, which is positive for
    can affect the performance! The radiator should be out in spring of 2010 with a retail price of approximately EUR 150
    in the trade as already come and get the big brother with a comprehensive package accordingly.
    Thanks to a clever craftmanship there can be mounted both 120mm and 140mm fan, this option so far is unique
    on the radiator market! Furthermore, the usual 2 G 1 / 4" threaded 2 additional threads on the front
    the TFC Monsta Lite available, which one at about 10 liters of increased flow and a greater variety
    The tubing of the heat exchanger brings with it!
    Even though the "little monster" of the performance is not quite the best in this test field radiators
    could catch up, so the whole concept could convince yet and is already as large Monsta
    Radiator will find its fans worldwide!


    you can extract the technical data from this PDF File:

    Last but not least, and virtually not competing, I have one as a comparison Dualradiator included in the test with :)

    To fill the CPU is Prime95 (small FFT's) used in the latest version, to measure the
    Temperatures / record came aquasuite used. The temperature measurements were made after the earliest
    60 min and then in 5 intervals, a 5 minutes.

    In my testing, the most interesting value of the difference (delta T) is the temperature of water at the outlet of the radiator. This figure shows the cooling capacity of the radiator, into which you can see, can take advantage of how well the radiator to cool the inside temperature of the water. The smaller this difference turns out, the stronger the performance of the radiator. The results will be visible to the interested user at a glance, so I will confine myself in addition to the flow of that value in the different fan speeds.

    Conclusion:


    80mm fan in the case sector were until a few years, Standard, this was followed by the hitherto popular 120mm fans
    and so it is really just a matter of time until those from the 140mm previously rather rarer still used by representatives of its
    Species to be replaced. More and more manufacturers are adopting this fan size and rightly so. In this test, the radiators
    has been shown that the development goes on, fortunately more power and less noise. During
    all sorts of annoying noises of everyday life, this is very commendable, they nevertheless give latest processors and graphics cards quietly
    and cool more effectively. A clear recommendation for a radiator model could be due to different needs and requirements
    not naturally inclined to express the water cooler. In the upper performance range Thermo Chill and Hardwarelabs have
    impressively demonstrated, where the bar is located at radiator of this size at this time. The heat exchanger can be of Feser
    equip themselves with fans conveniently in 2 sizes, advantageous for many around and intermediates, which are the costs of
    Save the purchase of new 140mm fans want first. Are a good idea at this point, the additional threads
    called at the front of the radiator. As might be expected to have the Magicool Rads again as price-performance
    assert winner in this test. Here and there a thread was not cut 100% and the build quality is noticeably
    behind the Black Ice SR1 series, but due to the comparatively low price and the offered services, these radiators
    definitely worth a recommendation for the budget-conscious users. Who the best synthesis of performance and outstanding
    Processing is looking, just come by to SR1 radiators manufacturer Hardwarelabs not. Very impressive is especially
    Proved 560s exchanger, which means pure performance. High-end PC systems with 2 video cards can be with this model
    cool very well - the performance has to be even before that of a Mora 2 Pro's Monsterradis not hide!
    One can only wonder what will bring us this 140mm radiators and other manufacturers in the future,
    a very good beginning has been made! Hardwarelabs was sort of a pioneer, as far as radiators in this size, so
    the GT and GTX versions available for some time. As these models, primarily for high-speed and high Fans
    Air flow shall be designed, I did not apply to voting in this test.
    If available, I will review these with other radiators for complementary 140mm fan!

    Interesting. Am I correct in saying there was only 1 x 120mm (fans) rad in there - and a cheap nasty one @ that... Would be good to see some better, thicker, 2-3 and 4 x 120mm rads compared to the 140mm ones. I'm sure the 140mm will still be better, but possibly not by so much.

    Thanks!
    This is the first review I have seen that makes a decent comparison with a nice roundup of 140mm fan radiators.
    And @Spork: yes, there is only 1 120mm radiator in there, but I think you can only really compare it to it's 140mm Magicool brother.
    A couple more 120's in this roundup would have been great, but I'm already very happy with this. :)

    Measuring the surface area of the PA140.3 it is a little larger than the PA120.4, so presuming the same airflow it should perform a little better too, should also have a slightly better coolant flow rate too, the 140 having a few more, shorter tubes...

    Does anybody know whether the Koolance HX-CU-1403V is the same as the Magicool Slim 420mm? They look really similar in pictures-

    http://www.koolance.com/water-cooling/product_info.php?product_id=964

    Looks like a pretty decent rad considering it's slim profile, I'm considering getting one for the bottom of my RV02 (with some BlackSilentPros or Thermalright 140mm perhaps)

    That would be awesome, thanks.

    The Magicool seemed to work well with low speed fans in your test, the Koolance "boasts" 30FPI which would suggest it's different (better with high speed fans). Thing is, they are so damn similar in both looks and rated dimensions, I really want to get a hold of the Magicool but they aren't as readily available as the Koolance from US retailers (Performance PCs has the Koolance), I wonder if I could get the Magicool Direct....

    If you find out please let us know, it would be very much appreciated :thumbup:

    *edit*

    I did a rough count on the Magicool using the top down pic you took as reference, it's probably 15FPI, definately not 30FPI, they are almost definitely different rads :-(

    Hopefully someone like PPCs get them in soon, it would cost me my right arm to have it sent from Europe.

    Hello Guys, here is my brandnew update for you - now there are 16 rads in this review. Sry, i had no time to translate it, so please use an online translator or just check the result charts. Thanks for reading :)

    Update 25.03.10: Folgende Radiatoren befinden sich nun ebenfalls in diesem großen Testvergleich:


    [​IMG]

    Phobya Xtreme 280:


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]


    Nachdem die Phobya Radis für 120mm Lüfter bereits seit einiger Zeit erhältlich sind, folgen nun die größeren Brüder f. 140mm Lüfter
    Für diesen Test stand mir ein Vorserienmodell zur Verfügung, welches bis auf das fehlende Zubehör bereits dem Serienmodell entspricht.
    Wie schon bei den Modellen für 120mm Lüfter, gibt es auch hier sowohl an der Front- als auch auf dem Wärmetauscher je 2x G 1/4"
    Gewinde, um entsprechende Anschlüsse verwenden zu können. Die Gewinde an der Stirnseite bringen einen kleinen Durchflussvorteil
    mit sich. Auf der Rückseite befindet sich eine Entlüftungsschraube, welche sich bei vertikalem Betrieb als nützlich erweisen kann.
    Ingesamt weiß der Phobya 280 Radiator zu gefallen, die Verarbeitung ist gut und die Leistung ansprechend ! Dieses Radimodell
    entspricht in etwa der Leistung eines Tripleradis f. 120mm Lüfter. Der Kaufpreis liegt bei angemessenen 60 Euro.



    Technische Daten:

    Material: Kupferlamellen, Vorkammern aus Messing
    Farbe: komplett Matt Schwarz
    Abmaße: (L x B x H): 338x145x60mm
    Anschlüsse: G1/4"
    Gewicht: ca. 1454g
    Montierbarkeit: von beiden Seiten für Lüfter oder als Halterung
    Gewindegröße Schrauben: M3
    Lüftergröße: 2x 140mm
    Druckgetestet: 2 Bar
    Sonstiges: Entlüftungsschraube

    Lieferumfang:

    1x Radiator
    8x M3x30mm Schrauben
    2x Entkopplung
    2x schwarze Verschlussschrauben




    Als weiteren Phobya Radiator stand mir folgendes Modell zur Verfügung:



    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]


    Der Radiator ist brandneu auf dem Markt und seit heute bei Aquatuning.de für knapp 60 EUR erhältlich !
    Speziell für Gehäuse mit Einbaumöglichkeit für "Monsterlüfter" wurde dieser Wärmetauscher entwickelt,
    natürlich lässt er sich auch extern betreiben und bietet aufgrund der 4x G 1/4" Anschlussgewinde viele
    Optionen zur Verschlauchung. Durch die 2 mitgelieferten Blenden, lassen sich eine große Anzahl von
    Lüftern der Größe 180mm - 220mm auf diesem Radi montieren ! Für den Test kam ein Coolermaster
    200mm Lüfter zum Einsatz, welcher einen guten Luftdurchsatz und gleichzeitig leisen Betrieb gestattet.
    Der eingesetzte Lüfter läuft mit max. 700 U/Min. Da es noch keinen weiteren Radiator dieser Größe gibt,
    habe ich mich dazu entschlossen, dieses Modell hier aufzunehmen. So hat man eine Vorstellung, wo
    sich dieser neue Radi leistungsmässig einordnet. Der Lamellenabstand ist groß genug, um auch mit
    relativ wenig Luftdurchsatz eine gute Leistung zu bieten.


    Technische Daten:

    Material: Kupferlamellen, Vorkammern aus Messing
    Farbe: komplett Matt Schwarz
    Abmaße: (L x B x H): 479x145x60mm
    Anschlüsse: G1/4"
    Gewicht: ca. 1976g
    Montierbarkeit: von beiden Seiten für Lüfter oder als Halterung
    Gewindegröße Schrauben: M3
    Lüftergröße: 1x 180-225mm
    Druckgetestet: 2 Bar
    Sonstiges: Entlüftungsschraube

    Lieferumfang:

    1x Radiator
    4x M3x30mm Schrauben
    4x M3x5mm Schrauben
    2x Lüfterblenden
    2x schwarze Verschlussschrauben

    Radis die Handschrift von Hardwarelabs tragen. Die Modelle sind für 1-3 Lüfter im 140mm Format ausgelegt.
    Die Verarbeitung ist tadellos und die Leistung ab 800 U/Min. ist auch im grünen Bereich.
    Ein durchdachtes Feature ist der Schutz unter den Schraubenlöchern. Wenn man irrtümlich zu lange Schrauben verwendet,
    beugt eine kleine Metallplatte der Zerstörung des Radiators vor ! (auf dem 2. Bild in der 2. Reihe ersichtlich)
    Bei Anschlüssen mit sehr langem Gewinde kann es vorkommen, das Gewindeverlängerungen notwendig sind, diese liegen
    den Radiatoren im Lieferumfang bei.



    Technische Details des 1x 140mm Modells:

    Material: Kupferlamellen & Messingrohre
    Anschlussgröße: 1/4"
    Abmaße: (B x H x L): 13,3cm x 3cm x 17,1cm
    Lüftergewindegröße: M4
    Gewicht: 794g

    Lieferumfang:
    1x Radiator
    4x M4x32mm Kreuz-Linsenkopfschrauben



    Technische Details des 280er Modells:

    Material: Kupferlamellen & Messingrohre
    Anschlussgröße: 1/4"
    Abmaße: (B x H x L): 15,3cm x 3cm x 31,6cm
    Lüftergewindegröße: M4
    Gewicht: 726g

    Lieferumfang:

    1x Radiator

    Technische Details der 420er Version:

    Gewicht: 1kg

    Lieferumfang:

    Die Firma Aquacomputer.de, bekannt durch viele innovative und erfolgreiche Produkte, schickt ihren neuesten Vertreter aus
    der Radiatoren Abteilung ins Rennen: den Airplex Revolution 360/420 ! Die Bezeichnung lässt bereits die Besonderheit dieses
    Wärmetauschers erahnen: es lassen sich sowohl 3x 120mm- als auch 140mm Lüfter verbauen, wobei jeweils eine Seite für die
    entsprechende Lüftergröße ausgelegt ist. Für Auf- und Umsteiger der beliebten 360er Radis, die bereits den üblichen Ausschnitt
    im Gehäuse besitzen, ist dieser Radiator also eine besonders gute Wahl, da man nicht direkt erneut das Gehäuse modifizieren muss.
    Der Preis von knapp 80 EUR geht angesichts der gebotenen Leistung und Features in Ordnung. Es befinden sich beidseitig je 2x G 1/4"
    Gewinde in der Vorkammer. Denkbar sind also u.a. Radi Sandwiches, oder einfach die Befüllung über eine dieser Öffnungen, als eine
    Art Fillport. So kann man sich den sonst notwendigen Ausgleichsbehälter im Kreislauf sparen.
    Eine passende Radiblende mit zusätzlichem Ausschnitt wird von Aquacomputer bereit gehalten.
    Sauer aufstoßen lässt mich die Tatsache, das sich keinerlei Lüfterschrauben im Lieferumfang befinden und kein Inbusschlüssel,
    um die 2 Edelstahlinlay auf der Seite f. 120mm Lüfter zu montieren.
    Dies ist bei halb so teuren Radiatoren eine Selbstverständlichkeit, oftmals sogar in 2 Längen.
    Die Lackierung meines Testmusters weist an einigen Stellen Unebenheiten auf, ferner sind die Lamellenreihen teils etwas verschoben. Natürlich ist dieser Aspekt eher zweitrangig, da man dies im verbauten Zustand kaum bis gar nicht sieht.
    Der Radiator wurde in Deutschland entwickelt und laut Aquacomputer wird er auch hier produziert. Der Preis ist dahingehend gut !

    Oh sweet! Great to see those Phobya rads put into action, the 180mm seems to be a real P160 killer! Amazing results.

    Have to say I'm a little disappointed at the performance of the SR1 140mm though, would have expected it to be a little better with low speed fans vs the 240mm Magicool Slim.

    Thanks again for another awesome round up! Much appreciated Bundy :thumbup:

    *edit*

    BTW, I don't suppose you've tried a Silverstone 180mm fan on that Phobya 180mm? If it fits it would be a great solution for quiet cooling in an RV01/RV02/FT01/FT02.
