Good though, I'd probably get something other than the PA 120.3. It's a good radiator, but it's more for low-speed fans, so I'd get something like the XSPC RX360 and some Zalman F3 fans.

Don't know much about Swiftech tubing, but I'd have to recommend Tygon or Masterkleer.

I haven't looked into the XSPC RX360 rad but i'm all for buying the cheaper rad if it performs similar to the thermochill pa120.3. More importantly, is a triple 120mm rad enough to handle both my i5 750 and hd 5970 at its current OC settings?

it all depends on what fan u use on the rads.. RX performs best with medium speed.. Thermochill with lower speed fans..

possible alright but dont expect awesome temps.. you'll need at least another rad for the 5970.. a 240 should hit the spot for the video card..

I am planning on using my current noctua P12 fans with the rad.

I am not looking for outstanding idle/load temps but I will be happy if they were at least better than what I am getting on air cooling which is ~72C load cpu and ~78C(40% fan speed) ~67(70% fan speed) <- (sounds like a jet taking off ) load gpu.
