It would be a ton better.

How much space do you have between the end of the GPU, and the bottom of the case?

The XSPC EX360 sounds perfect for you. 36mm thick and does fantastic with anything above 1200rpm.

i was looking at the Hardware labs Black Ice GT Stealth 360 Radiator, reason i wud do pull is because i dont want to cut a hole in the back of my case..

The red is where im mounting the 360rad and i would be putting 3x ap15s, and left 180mm fan would be removed to fit the rad, and im keeping the middle 180mm fan because that would be the only thing feeding my hard drives air behind the mobo tray
