I'd pick up a 240 BIX.BIX 240..With some higher pressure fans on the rad..86cfm Pana..I like these better..115 Pana-S/W..That should give you several C better temp's....

Shrouds will help on a BIX....

The GTS is another decent one, its cheap but its fairly flow and air restrictive, I don't think it would do to well with a MP-05 since that block is so restrictive....

You could always put your rad on top of your case or hang it on the back..That woul;d keep it out in the cooler room ambients to....
Thanks for the links. If I did put the rad on top. I would also have to drill holes for the barbs and tubes to fit through, correct?

NP...You could do it that way, just use some rubber grommets to line the holes and run them into the top of your case...3/4" Rubber Grommets

Or just have your rad barb end hang over the back of the case a little and run your tubing down the back, either run it in through some empty PCI slots or drill a couple of holes and use grommets on the back of the case...

I always leave my rad so I can take it off easily and lay it down low and shake it a little while I'm bleeding, helps to knock the air out faster...So if I had one on top I would just run the tubing down the back...

EDIT: If you put it on the top of the case you might want to go ahead and get a 360 rad, its just not much more $$$ then a 240 and it will give you a little more wiggle room temp wise...

The CM690 has enough room for a 240rad max. Not enough room for a 360. I do have holes in the back to run the tubes (what I'm doing now), but I rather keep it all inside. Thanks for the link to the rubber grommets though. rep++.

Its NP....Feel free to yell at us anytime you need to...If you do have the room for it I would use a shroud on it, I'd do a pull if you only run fans on one side of it, seems to work a little better then a push on these thicker higher fin per inch rads...I always liked those MP-05 blocks, restrictive, but they are killer on naked cores...
