Then 2 drops of the PT Nuke biocide.....
Thanks.

I think Ill go with that Swiftech without the speed controller. It runs on the highest speed all the time right? Im going with that because Ill probably go with a GPU block when I get my 8xxx series.

For the radiator, it the GTX worth it over the standard GT? Thats a huge ass price difference...

Quoted from HW Labs' site: " Yields up to 45% more heat exchange capacity than the Black Ice® Xtreme in both Stealth or Performance modes."

Wow, seems intense.

Looks good except the tubing length, I would get a few feet more just in case. I bought 9 feet for my double rad and res setup and used a little over 8'. Then I switched to a T line and had to buy some cheap stuff for the T.

And the FM121s have pretty good fins and move good air, but to get the most out of the GTX eventually you might want some high speed panaflos 38mm types. Maybe when you get the GPU block upgrade the fans at the same or just test it out first and see how much heat is building up in you're loop.

I was thinking about that, but the noise is going to be killer! My FM's right now are 40ish dBa and I find them a bit annoying sometimes. You know of any fans that may be a bit quieter?

Holy crap man, nice! I have to ask you about your sick-ass setup you have. How is that GTX working out for you? Is it really a great improvement over your other rads? I'm trying to decide between the GTX and a GT II.

Everyone has been telling me I need 100+ cfm for my rad, but I don't know.

I thought I heard the GTX needs really good fans to make use of the thick fin density. I would at least run something like these, most people will say you should run 100cfm fans on the GTX:
http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/pa12mesp.html

If you didn't want the fan noise you might reconsider the rad and get a themochill PA120.2 they are designed for more lower speed fans.

Tough call, how much performance would I sacrifice by going with a PA?

If I have to, I can deal with the noise and install a fan controller if necessary.

Acording to tests done by a Thermochill representative over on Over-Clock.com here - http://www.over-clock.com/ivb/index....opic=19496&hl=


In post #5 Marci states -
Quote:
Testing has shown that with 70cfm fans moving at 1200rpm at less, the PA120.3 with 3 of such will match or beat the GTX480 with 4 of such. Move above 70cfm fans and the GTX will begin to pull ahead. Move below 70cfm, and the PA's lead grows.

Well my GTX is great!! even with just yate loons on it its giving mear ambient temps. And now that im getting those 90CMF silenx's, who knows what temps ill get.
The PA rads are as good if not even better than the GTX rads in my honest opinion.The problem is the PA rads are just so hard to come by.
But like Joe said there, past 70CMF, the GTX moves forward, so with some nice 90CMF fans and 38mm thick as well, you will get some nice sucking!1
And as well from Marci's quote...she does work for Thermochill , so keep that in mind...bias uhm uhm. lol
