I have an i7 920 system on water using some very old swiftec radiators (I think they are from the 8600 water kit, see:
So here is my question: With my current setup (specs below) would I see a significant temp change by switching to something like a 3x 120 mm radiator or bigger and just putting it outside the case (that's where my current 120mm rad with the delta is because it was too loud). I really don't care about having the tubing go out to an external radiator but i'd like to just buy one really good radiator that will give me some future cooling capability so that I can just set it and forget it. Any recommendations would be welcome. Thanks,

Cooling: 1x 120mm swiftec radiator with delta 240cfm, 1x 80mm swiftec radiator with 80mm ~60cfm fan. Some case fans for basic breathing. Thermaltake waterblock (kind of basic one) and 3/8 tubing for the loop. Pump is a swiftec mcp35x with small resevoir, all of this in a single loop.
My house temp is about 70-80F depending on the day.
