Thread Starter 
Alright, guys...I've got everything. The only thing I'm missing is the bracket for the EK CPU Block. Now I'm trying to figure out what to do with all of my equipment. Like I feared, my PSU doesn't fit on bottom with my 360mm radiator. I'm considering putting the second 360 rad on top of the case. I might be putting a fan shroud over it, but I don't know if I can swing the cash right now.

Two questions before I even worry about all of it: is a single 360mm radiator good enough? If so, I can sell my other one and fund some equipment. Also, if I stack both of them, would 3xYate Loon Mediums as the lower row of fans and 3xKaze Ultra 3000's as the upper row of fans be enough?

Here's a drawing of what I'm planning. Most of it should be pretty obvious, but blue is radiator, green is fan, orange is CPU/GPU, gray is res, red pump. If it matters, the HDD tray in the far bottom right and he fan above it aren't there. Exact location of res and pump will vary, but generally on the right is what I'm considering.

I had my i5 2500k and gtx 470 with a single 360 rad, and my temps were fine. Around 65C max temp on CPU and 50C on GPU. You should be ok.

Not sure about stacking rads on top of each other, never tried that.

Good luck with build. And nice deal on that gtx 470, those cards OC like a beast under water. I'm in the process of slapping my old h50 on mine to put in my htpc so it can play some current games.
