The typical thread size used on watercooling components. It's the size of the threading of parts (such as fittings) that screw into radiators and other components.

British standard thread 19 threads per inch, obviously some crazy Brit got the water cooling bug and the obsolete thread from Britain was adopted. bike.gif

Well - what you need depends on what level of water temperature over the ambient you can tolerate. There is pretty good overviews of the recent 3x120mm radiators at
http://skinneelabs.com/water-cooling-radiators/2010-radiator-review/
http://skinneelabs.com/water-cooling-radiators/2011-2012-radiator-review/

However, if you are willing to mount a radiator externally I would suggest you to take a look at Xtreme NOVA 1080 Radiator - this is 9x120 mm designed for very low rpm fans offering an awesome bang-for-buck, in my opinion, in the sense of price-per-surface-area. It's usually approx 90 euros so about 10 euros per 1x120mm rad space.

Ofc this is larger than you "need" and is not suitable if you need to fit the rads inside the case. You could ofc just bolt it to the side of the case externally if you want to keep it as part of the setup wink.gif
