It's possible. I'm using Noctua NF-F12's for fans. Not sure what they're speeds are though.

Yeah, it's stock speeds for both CPU and GPU. There's no real mounting location for the top of the case. I'm considering just doing an external radiator.

What rpm fans are you running? That is quite the load for a 240mm, I think I was using a 240mm and 280mm and wasn't ever quite satisfied with the temps when I had only 1 980
No idea about the water temperature, or fan speeds. Come to think of it, I just realized that the pump is what I have placed on the fan header. Should that be put on a regular fan header instead, and I place my two 120mm fans on a splitter for the CPU fan header? I think the 980 is mounted right. Before when it was air cooled it got to around 81/82C, and no on water in games it rarely passes 50C. I don't think I'll be satisfied either way either. I'm just having an issue with my CPU temperature at this point. The GPU, as I said, tends to run very cool. But my idle temps are kind of high which is what's making me think somethings wrong. Their even higher than my idle temps on air were, by a pretty decent amount.
