The chiller you linked is a brand I've never seen before. Common chiller brands include JBJ, Oceanic, or Pacific Coast.

No need for a radiator [the chiller takes place of a radiator], but you will need an external pump. The one you linked is submersible. Get something like Pan World or Gen-X.

that chiller is OP!

For clarification, he wants to use the "cold" radiator to blow cold air into his case, apposed to using the rad to further cool his loop.

On these chillers are min flow rates. What happens if you don't meet that. Say it needs a min of 300gph and you only pump 130gph thru the chillers?

If the flow rate is too low, it will cause the lines to freeze up. So, it is better to keep it above the minimum figure.

The link below is a review of using an aquarium chiller to cool i7 980X and a HD5970. The chiller used was a Hailea HC-500A (½ HP) which can handle a 5GHz 980X satisfactorily.

http://www.hailea.com/e-hailea/product1/HC-500A.htm

The Sunlight Supply EcoPlus is rated at 950 BTU (280 watts = 0.375HP) and is weaker than the Hailea but it seems you will fit more components to the cooling loop.
So, I suggest you consider changing to a more powerful unit.
