All things to consider. I have had this case before, the reason I am giving input is I have tried to use the LCS system that came with it. The "Whole" system is not that great. The reason the reviews show it on the lesser of the scale is because you are pitting a 500L pump against better pumps. Stock fans VS better static pressure fans. A very, very basic radiator design vs better copper fined and FPI models.

Consider things like this.

-Fans and static pressure.
-Radiator FPI and relation to Fan CFM/Pressure and speed for noise. Also core type and flow rating.
-Pump Speed and Head Pressure.
-Location and Airflow.

I am not telling you are wrong and not going to see a difference. But to justify the 60 bucks on just a radiator on the same exact loop will not do justice. Maybe some higher CFM fans with a better radiator. When is the last time you cleaned your loop?

This thermaltake has my idle around 37C, even without the overclock, and the full load hits way over 50C

Mod the door then. Add 3 AP-15's, Black Ice Extreme. Laing D5 or MCP35X. Tubing of your choice and Res. Back in 2007 I had a whole Danger Den loop made for the case and the door needed to be trimmed for the fans and everything fit with a 50mm radiator.

The radiator might not give you a big deal of performance, but if you have a little extra money I would try to fit a black-ice sr-1 360 or gts in it. Eventually equip them with 3 new fans. You will need fans that provide a little static pressure, which can be Noise Blocker or Prolimatech 1000rpm+. The rads works ok with low speed fans, and they are not that restrictive, but you have to check dimensions on hwlabs.com.
