There was up to about a 5C difference go from a push or pull to a Push/pull config.
Sheer rad space allows more water in the system. Going with a 30mm rad instead of a single 60mm or even a 45mm rad is quite a waste (but for some people like the look)
I'd do a 80mm rad if my GPU would have allowed it lol.

Not entirely sure if it's true but 1x 60mm thick 360mm rad = 2x 30mm thick 360mm rads
if that is true then 1x 60mm thick 360mm thick rad > 1x 30mm thick 360mm rad and 1x 30mm thick 240 or 280mm.
Have fewer rads also reduces the Db of the system and fans required in the system.

So basically the best would be thinker rad with more high performance fan? Preferably one with high pressure.

Thanks! I'm actually not usually a big fan of red/black either, but the Msi mb and gpu kind of forced me into it. So I tried to balance it out without over doing it. Not sure what I'll do when I build the custom WC system. I'm afraid using red coolant will be too much.

Perspex Plate eh? Do you have a link or example you can share? I'd be interested in that.

Discoveries
- The Gigabyte GTX 970 (N970WF3OC-4GD) does allow for an H100i at the front, it's actually 285mm from the edge of the case. It is definitely not as wide as an Asus Strix which wouldn't fit. It's also pretty quiet.

So even the Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 would fit with the H100i in the front? The G1 is about 297mm long, according to this: http://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/gigabyte-geforce-gtx-970-g1-gaming-review,3.html

Yes, but at the same time a larger radiator creates more resistance, of which a second fan would reduce that resistance lol.

Ty. I actually got these from http://www.icemodz.com. I believe they ship worldwide and I got them pretty quick. However I live somewhat near Iceland so took approx 3-4 days.

What I have is not the G1, It's the OC version which is basically the same card but (1) slightly lower clocked and (2) without the backplate and because of that slighty shorter. While my card is specced to be 310mm , it's actual clearance measured from the inside of the case is 285mm.

Compare the pair:
GV-N970WF3OC-4GD http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=5212#ov
GV-N980G1 GAMING-4GD http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=5208#ov

So if the G1 needs 297mm clearance (it may be less), it would still fit - the total case clearance is 360mm. If I am right the H100i is 25mm + 25mm (radiator + fan) which should leave you with 13mm.

Im assuming the h105 being 11mm bigger would be a super tight fit?
