You will defiantly be able to "cool" it, in the sense that it will be better than stock. But the point of watercooling is to cool things very well.

This would be only marginally better than air cooling or a corsair all in one solution. If you do in fact plan on upgrading later it would be a better plan.

I wouldn't buy a radiator, pump, waterblock, tubing, and fittings if I only ever planned of using one 120mm radiator. There are cheaper options that are still comparable.

If you look at the results people are getting with the H50 and H70 models, that should give you a good idea of what kind of performance you could expect out of that size radiator.

Exactly smile.gif Of course if you want to have some fun assembling the loop you can go ahead with some high performance 120 rad like RX120 smile.gif

Wow, I don't know EK has the very thick 120mm radiator. I really like it a lots.

Definitely yes! But some will be more pressure on you & their saying " get 240MM rad", blah, blah"..

My advice - you pick up the excellent waterblock and pump. please avoid to buy the dirty cheap CPU waterblock.
