If you want to keep good temps and IF you can fit one a 360mm in P/P would be the best choice. Otherwise a 240mm and a 120 right after it would do.
EDIT: I use Scythe Kaze Slipstreams on mine and I barely notice them.

did you overclock any of your components?
that sounds kind of suprising that a 400 couldnt handle a cpu and a gpu

Sorry for the late reply. Windows problems tongue.gif
My CPU was only at 4GHz but GPU was at stock for the time being.

150W / 120mm fan space with medium yate fans to hold a 7dT (uper average for watercooling).
How do you calculate wattage?
Take the TDP of the product and use that.
Total power draw will always be less then the heat output.
So doing the math on power draw will keep you well into the safe point.
Typical Sandy bridge will not load up more then 120-150W of heat overclocked.
A GPU of your class wont do more then 150-200W on a full card block.
Adding the two together = 400W roughly as the most wattage you will need to cool.
doing math a 120x3 = 450W which gives you a 50W excess which means u can turn your fans from medium to low to offset the 50W u got in extra cooling capacity.

Thank you! That is very helpful!

It clears up a lot of the confusions I had, and hopefully it can help others too

So I guess a 400 rad isnt as strong as a 360 rad due to the fans and weird scaling issues?

Mostly the fans because 200mms don't spin as fast as a 120mm.
