If your just going to have a CPU and NB in the loop the 240 GTX would be fine if you think you might put a GPU in your loop go ahead and get the 360 GTX...

Think the 360 GTX will fit nicely mounted with the top fan even with my exhaust going down the back of the tower without hitting the floor?

Yeah it should...Make a deflector for your PSU exhaust so it wont go straight into your rad the same with your GPU...I'll leave you a couple of pic's of my BIX on the back...I made quick dis-connects out of 1/4" aluminum channel and mounted to one side of my rad and to my rad-box then just drilled holes in the piece on the rad and used #10 round head machine screws in the rad-box side...That way I could take my rad off and lay it over on its side to bleed and move it up higher if I wanted to get to stuff in the PCI area it was height adjustable.....

Man that thing is insane. I think it's sweet I'm just a little more of a neat freak as far as the outside looks go. I'm gonna see what I can do but I want it running down from the case rear exhaust so I might just get that 360 and a block for my 8800. Thanks!

NP...Yeah personally I would want a 360 for anything over just a cpu only loop...Your temps wont spike so much with a bigger rad..I'm using a 480GTX now for my Pelt rig check it out...It has its own PSU for the rad fans...
