Yes, the TFIII cooler.

This is what I'm talking about - http://www.overclock.net/t/926188/project-novakan3-pic-heavy-warning/20#post_17509762

Just as long as you have a fan blowing on them 24/7 you should be good to go. Personally I'd also recommend going with the Antec 920 because the tubing is easier to work on especially with this being a GPU cooler

Here is Dwood's Artisan page:

Brackets look more professional but zipties are ghetto goodness and work just as well. See my link in sig

Thank you both!
Got this on my Christmas list.
Is the 92MM fan bracket better?
Or just side fans?

Your welcome. Cant answer about the 92mm bracket but a side fan always helps.

Dwood bracket. super easy. I used a antek 620 and a 920 so cost are different, a custom bracket and shipping is around 20 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835209049&name=Water-Liquid-Cooling Unless Dwood changed his bracket,totally possible, The h80 doesn't exactly work with it. You should ask Dwood though. He's really good with metal and will cut anything for you. You can get most of the coolers on special here and there. Just look around

Thank you.
If he can't make a 120MM fan bracket, what are some good 92MM fans, that look nice and are quite?
Also, I have the TFIII cooler with the ram heatsinks preinstalled, would I need a fan?
Also, does a hard drive mounted fan work? (Switch 810 fan)

You dont really need a fan specifically for the vram but you should have some direct air flow for the mosfets and caps... they do get hot.

What is this hard drive mounted fan, you speak of?

Arctic cooling offer a nice 92mm fan that they use on the AXP series coolers... they work very well and are quiet.

AT 9:32, there is a black fan stick out of the hard drive cage. My plan was to set the fan to blow air at the vram.
