I don't think you should sacrifice radiator volume by going 240mm, that would affect heat dissipation way more than flow restriction would potentially affect CPU/GPU thermals. If you can't find a review of that block where flow rate dependence was tested perhaps you could do a temporary open bench build and test that block yourself at different pump speeds/flow rates? I wouldn't expect a ~20% drop in flow rate to make CPU thermals worse by more than ~1.5℃ with a standalone CPU block.I transmit the link of these results on the Winter One thread. Thank you, it's perfect.
I'm not going to be able to use the 280 Xflow, but by using 240, it could be a good way ... My waterblock is very restrictive (165 microchannels of 0.1mm)
