If you cooling that much I would say a 480 rad. GTX or TFC. Just so you know those ram coolers have aluminum. Either ditch those or find a good anticorrosive agent.

Yea you will see those AL heatsinks corrode away pretty fast and all those particles will be stuck in your loop..Yuck!! Your gonna some PT_Nuke. And you should get a 480.

mips > koolance

reason being i own pretty much all koolance parts and im not really satisfied. I would do a little more research before going hog wild. i learned my lesson the hard way for how much i paid for this colling system i could have made a pretty badass system if i would have waited and done some searching before sticking with one company.


just my 2c though

You might get by with a 360 rad but temps won't be very nice. Either go with a dual loop or a quad rad.

You need to find a good anti-corrosive agent, distilled water and some PT-Nuke, the koolance blocks are aluminium and the other blocks are copper so they will react. Also if you insist on using the koolance blocks you need to get the nozzles. You also need to buy tubing and barbs for all the fittings. I reccomend a TFC 480 radiator and 8 1500rpm 50
+ CFM fans.

If you go watercooling you can't skimp out on anything as it will usually lead to a big problem.
