ok..

I have read so many posts, i'm blind. I am also tired of looking at posts and recommendations from 3 years ago..

So here we go.. In my quest to get my i5 cooled well at 5.2Ghz (Currently I am stable at 5.0, but the temps are hovering below 80 cel) I am replacing my current WC setup.

So my question is, which config would you choose.. (NOTE: I am not one for reading all the techno babble charts, rather have someone give some real world feedback..)

(1) GTX360 w/3 Scythe UK3 (fan controller of course) in pull cooling one i5 and a Xfire 6870BE setup

or

(1) Swiftech MCR360-XP w/3 Sycthe UK3 (again, fan controller) in pull and (1) Swiftech MCR120-XP in push/pull w/2 Scythe S-Flex SFF21G fans

I am leaning towards the latter, but looking for opinions.. The swiftech setup will JUST make it fit wise.. and the GTX will fit without issue..

I am also toying around with running my cooling system so that I use 2 sets of quick disconnects run the tubing through the floor and mount the radiator and fans in the basement (much cooler) Then i might entertain a 480 radiator and i would never hear the fans, so I could jump up to the Delta 252cfm models.. and it would only add 2 feet of tubing..

Thoughts?

Thanks..
