I find that only in metro after about 3 hours gaming does my slim 360 with 60CFM fans start to heat up the liquid by 3C per 30 mins.
Im sure with a nice 2X 240 or even 1X240 + 1X120 you will be able to curb your CPU + GPU heat.

Note: I use a Cpu and Gpu block only, I dont cooler the vrms on the card or any of my motherboard with water.

Thanks guys! I will start checking for parts to make sure what exactly I can use on this case. If I really go through with it, I'll make a complete post detailing my results here.

If I was you, I would wc the 480 without a doubt. for one gpu fan noise is extremely irritating(to me anyways) and two Ive read about people getting 50-60% OCs with a 480 on water! Then you would blow the 5970 outta the water...meaning you have without argument the best graphics card in the universe!(IMO)

The fan noise on the gpu cards under heavy usage was the sole reason why I went wc. :-(
