The Apogee XL is one of the worst blocks you can buy, its performance near or at the bottom across 3 different CPUs, in addition to being high restriction. How it would compare to the Triton's block I don't know.
Both the H220X and H240X use a slim radiator, and in addition one fan space is blocked off due to the pump/res so you can't do true push-pull.
Because "all else is not equal." Nothing is equal because all things are different;, different coolers, different radiators, different fans, etc.
Let me backtrack. You're saying it doesn't matter if the Swiftechs can't do push/pull because you can just throw on fans with better static pressure, and in push only they'd still do better than with weaker static pressure fans in push/pull. So my question is what's preventing you from using the same high static pressure fans on the Triton where you can do true push/pull config?
Additionally, you may also find this post from Martin informative.
The question he was answering isSlim + Push/Pull is pretty much a sure win over thick and just push or pull.
What Martin is saying is that using a good thin radiator with push/pull will give more improvement than going to a thicker radiator with only push. I suspect he is assuming both will be using the same or similar fans.So I was wondering what was better, a 60mm radiator with push, or a less than 55mm radiator with push pull? My 420 rad doesn't fit in the top of my case with push pull frown.gif
Also the 5mm slimmer rad has a fun density of 20 while the other one a density of 10
Martin said:Don't get too wrapped up in fin density. Generally the more dense will do better with higher speed fans, but that isn't always true either since there are different fin types. I've seen the opposite in too many examples now to really depend on FPI to be much of a guide. The slimmer the rad the less restriction through the fins as well, so it's a number of variables.
