The new GTX260&280 (not the 9900 series) are coming out later this month, so you can get one of those instead of a 9800GX2.

would it work well too?

The PA is a good rad to, if you are going to use those fans on it a GTX should do better..360 GTX Beats PA.3 Using 47cfm YL Fans.The PA only pulls a head of the GTX with under-volted -47cfm fans...

Just get whichever you like better, there both good rads...But I would go with a 360 at least for CPU and GPU, its hard to beat more rad surface area, especially if you are wanting to use lower cfm fans.....

If you cant fit it inside anywhere, its easy enough to hang one on the back of your case with one of these..Radbox ..Or mount it on top..I like ot keep mine out in the cooler room ambients, should cool a little better that way...

Hey NP...You really cant buy shrouds for the GTX that are any good...Just use some gutted 120x38mm fans if you can find any, and if not even some gutted 120x25mm will still help...


.How To: Make any Sized shroud in 2 minutes

A shroud will help your temp's some....It wont kill temp's if you don't use one, but its a little better with them...

One of the best ways is to use barbs like these.Fat Boy Barbs..They have a o-ring capture in them so you can tighten down your barbs all the way...Go slow during set-up and leak test it well...I tell how I do it and look for leaks in that PDF that I left you in another post..Use a UV additive and look for any little weepy leaks with a UV light...I use a little 4" UV cold cathode to check with..I always leak test twice, once outside the case and once in...When you do it outside the case all your doing is pressure testing your components with the pump that you'll be using, o-rings can blow out, res can have cracks, whatever...Then again in the case, this time your testing the tube to barb unions...

This is a good set-up thread....Assembling your Custom Watercooling Setup

That rad-box will fit 80-120mm fan holes, so you should be able to get it on the back OK...You can mount it to the rad at any of the fan mounts on the rad...So you could mount it to the middle mount on a 360 rad..

Res tops? You mean like that one that fits a DDC pump? I would just use a D-5 pump..D-5. And a res like this since you want a round res....EK-Multioption RES 100 rev.2

Glad that helped you out a little...Its just the way I clean and set my gear up...
