get this it will be even better

you pretty much set up a push pull sytem, the fans sandwiching the rad.

you can even mount one fan on the outside if you wanted

Alright, I guess your right with a side mounted intake fan and large top exhaust fan, my case is pretty well ventilated, so there should be plenty of cool air to blow over the radiator. I'm even thinking of moving one of my front fans to the top of the case as I've seen done in a video, so that I have one 120mm fan blowing toward the graphics card, and another directed at the ram and CPU area. So that should also help. I also think I'm going to wait and get the i5-3570K when it is released. Being the upgraded Ivy Bridge version of the 2500k, it's more or less the 2600k without hyperthreading, and cheaper. Thanks for all the input.

I'd mount the H60/80 as an intake if I were you. I had mine set up for exhaust for 6+ months and ended up turning it around the other day and have seen much better temps and higher OC headroom. Just make sure your top fan exhausts and you should be fine....

I don't think I want to go through setting up a complete watercooling system, even from a kit, particularly the way my case is set up. I'm actually strongly considering getting the Noctua NH-D14, since today I was looking at a review on AnandTech for the Corsair Hydro Series, and apparently the Thermalright Silver Arrow outperforms the H80, and is on par with the H100. When I looked up reviews of the Silver Arrow, I learned that the Noctua NH-D14 comes close to it, or even beats it. So it may be huge, but the Noctua is cheaper, and I don't have to mess with any case fans. I just need to be wary of where the CPU socket is on the motherboard I buy to make sure it will fit in my case.
