Heh. Doubt it.

This may be hit and miss, actually, it probably is, but I'm here to learn, right?



The 5 quantity on the tubing = 5 feet. Might as well go big than to not have enough.

Edit: I'm in no rush, I won't be ordering for another month or so.

Everything looks good except the Radiator... and the tubing (you'll be needing more than 5 feet )

1x120mm Radiator will be utterly insufficient for a quad-core and three video cards. For a loop like this, you are looking at a 3x120mm Radiator at the very least, and possibly a second 2x120.

That means you may also want a second pump, although the MCW-60's are pretty free flowing

EDIT: btw, what site is that from... the mcw-60 has a G80 adaptor.. (a stock block fits the 3870 without special adaptor)

best bet would be slinging the Radiator off the back of your case using a Radbox

And as for the GPU block, I hate to steer business away from Petra's, but you can get the mcw60 without the G80 adaptor for $10 cheaper from jab-tech. for one block it wouldnt make much of a difference, but 3 blocks certainly would..
