What Size Liquid cooler You Should Go For?

The main question which comes in everyone's mind when buying a liquid cooler is that what should be the size of the radiator? Whether it should be 120 mm, 240mm or 360 mm? Yes, it is difficult to decide but I'll clear all your doubts. So let's get started...

So in this, I will not tell you about the 140 mm and the 280 mm version because many cabinets do not support that. So I'll talk about that in any other article.



First of all the main thing about choosing the size of the radiator is that will it fit in the cabinet which you have? Of course, the 360 mm radiator will not fit in small and mid towers. It requires a big cabinet also called a full tower. What you want to keep in mind is that the fans will play a very big part in these liquid coolers. The fans have different speeds and stuff.

The 120 mm radiator is enough to cool a non-overclocked CPU. But the thing with the 120 mm radiator is that it will be noisy and will run in more speed for getting a higher capability.

Then comes the 240 mm radiator that you can use when you have little more room to fit this in the chassis and also you want to push the CPU limit farther. And this is the most common radiator liquid cooler which most of the gamers use because almost every cabinet in the market supports 240 mm radiator. Now you might think that this will give 2 times more performance than 120 mm radiator but it's not like that. when the size gets double it's not like that the performance will also get doubled. One of the main thing about this is that 240 mm radiator liquid cooler has the highest RPM.

Then the biggest one also the 360 mm radiator liquid cooler comes. Nowadays, many of the cases are supporting a 360 mm radiator. You are capable to run the fans at the lowest speed with the 360 mm radiator and you got a lot of air volume going through the heat exchanger which means better cooling, very slowly heats up, quicker to cool down and you can do more overclocks.

So these are the differences, now you can buy the best liquid cooler for your case.
