Looks great!, can you tell me what your temps are like?, i've got the same rad coming and also a 120mm for the top but i'll send the 120 back if the 360 can handle the cpu and gpu well enough.

the Dual 180 handles my CPU and GFX fine. Both CPU and GFX idle around 30c. Running BF3 I dont go above 45-47c

Can i ask if you have the rad mounted to the bottom or just laying there?.

Was about to install mine the other day and had stripped the case when i noticed the screws that come with the rad are not the correct size for use with these thicker fans so had to order some more!.

I read in another post somewhere that had to buy different mounting screws which i did, but essentially its just attached to the fans and then just sitting on the bottom.
