The price / performance king is still the Swiftech QP series
Thanks, I've read the Skinnee Lab's review and it provides come great info, I noticed it didn't have the XSPC rad's though, I'll look for some other reviews as well but it shoulds like sticking with the Swiftech isn't a bad idea.

As you can see, at full speed the NF-P12 is quite noisy, a resonance issue which happened on my sample too, and it also doesn't push much air. It will work, just not as well as a cheap Yate Loon (~$5 each) and nowhere near as well as a GT
Seems like fans are a better investment, I'll definitely pick some GTs or Yate Loons up.

The pump in that system will be more than enough, the MCP35X is a beast.
Great, seems like I can safely use this for the system.

The only thing I would be wary of is if the res/rad/pump combo fits in your case. I don't know how much extra space there is in the 800D at the end of the rad mounting, might be worth a measure
I've see some pics around the forum with people having them installed but I'll measure it myself just to be safe.

A bigger pump and a Bay Res!
I've considered going with a bay res with integrated pump but I didn't really see anything that I liked, the Typhoon III looked promising but had issues.

I'm also considering getting a quad radiator, mounting it out back and having the pump and rez mounted there too. I'm just wondering how I'd get the MCP35X+rez mounted and if it's a pain to unplug and plug in wires once you have things mounted out back.

Skinnee's review has the XSPC RX series in it. For a comparison of the XSPC RS rad and the Swiftech QP rad, check out Martin's tests of the 360 versions. I'm not sure if the tests can be directly compared though, there might be differences in test setup.

XSPC RS360

Swiftech MCR320

If you are going for a quad rad and you are handy with a jigsaw then you can get one into the top of an 800D. CharlieHorse did it (see below), might be worth asking him for advice on how easy it is.

Thanks for all the advice guys, I've decided to ditch the MCR320 Drive, and go with a seperate rad, but use the same pump (MCP-35X) for the PWM. Here is my first order



I just need to order the rest of the stuff, but I'm wating to see if any good deals come up in the sales forum.

That's how I plan to mount the equipment but I have a question on the MCP35X+Rez. I've seen others mount it up rear like I have shown but what do they use to mount it? I'm thinking some kind of L bracket but anyway have any knowledge about this?

You are going to want more rad to cool all that...

I have a 3x120 and a 120 rad and it isn't really enough to cool my two cards and cpu.
but I am fixing that problem

Placed my order at sidewinder, I'm already over my budget now T_T.

I'm going to try this for now and if it's not enough I'll switch the 360 to a 480 or the 120 to a 240 down in the bottom but hoping this will be enough to keep my temps moderately low.
