Well, if you want to try and calculate things like this, take a look at one of martins graphs, specifically temp delta vs. heat load. Now you just have to figure out heat load.
-1st look up the tdp(thermal design power, try google or a power supply calculator of the part of interest, Q6600 GO here - which is 95 watts.
-2nd, multiply by (OC MHz)/(Stock MHz) then by (OC volts)/(Stock Volts) = 196W.
-3rd find the temp delta on the curve that corresponds to your fan choice, 2.25C/3.3C for medium speed/high speed Yate loons.
-Finally, how does this translate to core temps? that's a little tricker. If you look up the blocks performance for a given flow rate, you can find out how many degrees the water will rise across the block. Due to a difference in materials and a T gradient from core to block, this calculate temperature is not the same as the core temperature. (btw I used a thermal performance from swiftech's website to calculate 196W * 0.08 C/W = 15.68C above ambient so ~35C @idle with 20C water)
-From looking at other peoples performance for their know setups I'll bet this could be made a better approx.

Sorry I can't give you some firm numbers, maybe someone with this setup will chime in with some hard data.

By the way, I think the improvement, although tangible, may not be worth it from a performance/cost standpoint wrt a 320. If I had to hazard a guess, load temps would be within 5 degrees, and maybe closer to 2 degrees C. You could always start with a 320, and move to a 480 when adding a second loop or if you decide that it isn't enough. (then sell me your 320, I need one )

Also they are huge, so a floor standing mount seems to be the norm here, check ira-k's setup and others.

of course if all out performance is desired, one for each loop(or even block!!!), and nothing is wrong with that!!

Maybe someone will chime in with some empirical numbers.

Hope this helps

LOL yes i just saw a antec 900 case with a 480 attached ... holy crap its half the size of the case...

yes 320 it is I will just hope for the best .. cant be that bad afterall thanks so much for the info and Ill keep you in mind if im going to sell it
