|AaronMa||In my opinion, I think going ahead and buying a nice pump (like an MCP655) And a res that you can tuck away like the micro-res from Swiftech would be your best bet. Having these would make it easier to expand if you wanted to later down the road. And always need more rad.. I would go for AT LEAST a 240.|

As a rule of thumb you need 120 mm per device + 120mm. You could get away with 120mm if you are only cooling a CPU , I have found that GPU's are more demanding when you are watercooling.
I dont know the other parts so cant comment on them.

Anyone got information on the original questions ...
1) is a single 120mm UT60 enough to cool a 680 with a mild OC
2) Is the X20 450 strong enough to run a single GPU loop and the addition of a CPU block later or should I go with the X20 750 ?

The backplate won't be that much of a issue then. Maybe the Heatkiller block would look good on that set up.

My cards are rotated 90 degrees ... So you see the front of the card perfectly ...
This is how my system looks before extension cables and the WC I plan on doing (just realized it was before my new speakers as well ... lol)

|SlideRulz||But you do see the pcb board so a nice backplate makes it look nice.|

|martinhal||Other than the CPU block one does not really see the circles as the GPU block faces down.|

|Emissary of Pain||I really dislike the crop circles ... lol ... but will see what happens|

|martinhal||The parts are bits and bobs left over after 18 months of builds. I also have a XSPC Rasa CPU block. I found EK and Sidewinder best for delivery to SA.|
