Do you know if the GTX 360 will still be good with the new cpu/ the current 3770 ect.. or a better rad with better air flow is needed for the newer rigs including haswell ?
Edit: Also the pump I currently have is: mcp655 pump
Trying to see how much money I'll need to spend.
I would believe that with the new fans and a 3570/3770/4570/4770k it will be more than enough.
I know that some of the older 9xx series where quite hot, so you will probably get at least a good 4.3-4.7ghz without to high temps out of it
For reference I had almost every i7 on socket 1366.
Your pump is damn good, I use one my self, so keep that!
Try out some new fans and a new cpu first, it will probably be enough. But if you feel its to little airflow coming through the rad, you could always go for a push/pull setup (Fans on both sides if you are not familiar with it).
EDIT: Since you have a fancontroller, I would go for the 1850rpm Gentle typhoons, so you can go higher if you ever want to bench or a very hot day.
Around 1000-1200rpm these fans are almost dead silent I think, so try to keep them at that when you finally get them and see how far you can push cpu on that rpm (or how much noise you are comfortable with).
But no matter what you run them at, they will probably be a good bit more silent than your current ones.Edited by go4life - 5/26/13 at 6:56am
