Here's a better roundup of rads. I linked bundys because it had some info on the EX and Martin's did not. However Martin's data set is more complete. Btw, when I wrote above a RX360 at 10c delta dissipates 220w, it was from memory and I was wrong. It dissipates 150w lol, so ya you need lots more rad.

Looking at all the reviews, xspc RS is the best value price and performance wise. Seems like the EX is between the RS and RX.

EDIT: Can I use antec tri cool fans, i have a few sitting around, they are rated at 1200 / 1600 / 2000 RPM 39 / 56 / 79 CFM

It depends on your case so as best you can follow this mantra, stick in as much radiator as you can possibly fit.

I would get EX over RS.

Yea, use them. See how they work. If you don't like them get another set of fans, but you can cross that bridge later. There's many fan options.

A ex360 is only $10 more, so that's not a phloem, the only issue is how am going to fit 2 360s in an haf 932, might have to put one outside and in inside.

EDIT: The pump should be able to handle two 360s?

I'm running an i5 2500k at 4.3ghz with 2.80 vcore and a Sapphire 7970 at 1215/1625 with 1.262 core voltage on an a single ex240. My temps have been more than adequate given the Southern California heat in summer. I'm using an xspc raystorm block for my cpu and a xspc razor block for my gpu. The razor block does cover the VRMs and they are always within 10c of the core temp. In fact while playing BF3 or any similar demanding game, my cpu maxes out at 52-54c while my gpu sits around 45-48c. My GPU overclock is quite high voltage wise so I honestly think that a single EX/RX 360 will be more than fine for your needs.

I'm deciding between the Koolance VID-AR797 and XSPC 7970 block. $20 difference.

I'd rather get the aquagrfx or heatkiller than the two above.

Go with the Koolance if the $20 difference is not really that much to you. I have the Razor block and although it performs quite well, the Koolance looks better and performs a few degrees better according to the Bundymania review. Either way though, you honestly cannot go wrong because both will keep your GPU nice and cool.

The koolance will most likely lose it's nickel plate on the fin area.

Looking at the reviews posted, the koolance does offer a better flow.
