The Coolits not ordered yet, if anyone has a setup they would recommend that would include 2 5870's I would happily incorporate this.
I would suggest something more powerful than the FZE, especially if you plan to achieve sub ambient temperatures on CPU cores under load. You will most likely need a custom Phase unit.

I am using a Boreas (twice as powerful as a single FZE) to cool an i7 965. At stock frequency (3.2GHz), it gives about 20C above ambient temperature when under full load. With this as basis, if a single FZE is used to cool a hexa core i7 at 3.33GHz (assuming you are not overclocking yet), it will not yield sub ambient temperatures for the six cores.

In any way, a single FZE does not match the performance of an i7 980. I suggest you to consider at least a Boreas (order it directly from Coolit or from performancepc where it is selling with a good custom case).

After seeing the stock cooler and reading reviews for it, i'll be keeping the stock cooler or the mean time... with just 29 above ambient thats not to bad considering high end coolers are only obtaining 32 ect.. !
