Introduction

This is a follow up article to the review of the Black Ice Nemesis GTR 480 radiator from late last year, with this covering the 140 mm size and adding in a small push-pull fan test. As such, if you have not yet read that review I recommend doing so since it will have more information on the Nemesis GTR radiators and the series as a whole. So let’s thank Hardware Labs again for this review sample and get on with it.

Let’s begin with a look at the specs from the product page:

  • Increased internal coolant flow rates
  • 15% more tubing area in the same Black Ice® NEMESIS® 560GTX® radiator
  • Quad 140mm fan Xtreme form factor dual-core radiator
  • 592mm x 153mm x 54.7mm (L x W x H)
  • Noise optimized for 1000 RPM fans
  • New Enhanced Supercruise™ optimizations for scalable performance for higher RPM fans
  • 16 FPI 25 Micron 4th Generation Radical Geometry Copper Fins
  • 15% more tubing area in the same Black Ice® NEMESIS® 560GTX® form factor
  • Standard G 1/4″ inlet/outlet fittings
  • Standard M4 mounting threads
  • Compatible with Black Ice® Xtreme, Black Ice® GTX®, NEMESIS® GTX® radiators
  • Fully ROHS Compliant
  • Made using water soluble flux
  • 100% sourced from conflict-free materials
  • Industry standard Black Ice® quality
  • Custom Black Carbon high quality finish
  • Lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects

There is also a useful technical drawing under the “Dimensions” tab in the product page that will help measure out compatibility of the radiator for your specific case and components around. That helps confirm that the Nemesis GTR is occupying the same volume and space as the Nemesis GTX 560– down to the height/thickness even. This does mean the Nemesis GTR 560 is wider than most other 560 mm radiators, and on the longer side of average as well. At 54 mm thick, it belongs in the 60 mm thickness class of radiators but only just. The primary change here is what we saw before with the 480 mm version- the use of shorter Type R fins that means more fin stacks and more tube channels which aids in coolant flow rates but does mean a shift from low airflow optimization to more medium-high airflow optimization. Let’s begin with a look at the product on the next page.
