Hey guys, hope it's ok that i'm quoting this from my build log. I'm trying to get more input before i go forward and order my rads (again). I've already ordered rads that i'm not gonna use

My UT60 120 right now is gonna have GT AP-00's Push/Pull. Might put an LED fan on the rear for Pull, haven't decided yet.
The reason I'm putting all that out there right now is because the main thing's i need to order right now and am having trouble deciding on are my 2 x 360's and 240.
Obviously I have space restrictions because i wanted a portable rig. Pretty much every rad I'm gonna have in there except the 120 will be the result of my trusty Dremel
My front mounted rad needs to be 398mm long or less if I wanna be able to clip in the front panel. That pretty much limits me to either BI GT Stealth, EK Coolstream XT, Feser Admiral, Magicool Extreme 360, or XSPC EX360. If I went with something like the Admiral I'd have to make some major mods. Right now 35-40mm seems to be the sweet spot if i wanna go easy on myself, so I'm thinking of going with the EX360
My bottom 360 has enough room for a 45-50mm rad and has enough room length wise. I'm thinking of using an XT45 just because it's gonna be pushing against the back of my chassis so I'm planning on having a Drain Plug and maybe QDC coming out of the front or bottom ports with the loop running through the top ports
My 240 needs to be around 37mm or less and the shorter the better on the 120mm axis. I'm leaning towards the EX240 Multiport because that area will be a little cluttered and the extra ports might be useful.
Any input on anything I just said will be more than welcome. Choosing and ordering my rads has been holding me up from completing alot of the mods I've already started.
I'm pretty much going for as quiet of a build as i can with the space restrictions i have.
My build started with a UT60 280, XT45 240, and UT60 120. The more i cut into my case to make those fit, the more rad space i've noticed i could carve out.
I'll be cooling a 4930k, RIVE BE, 2 x 290x's, and maybe RAM....Edited by kpoeticg - 10/22/13 at 11:51am
