About radiators in my new build

Hi!

I plan to cool down two geforce 280 GTX and a motherboard chipset in my next build, I'll be using 3/8" tubing.

I've got this:

Also I have a single 120mm copper rad, I plan to put the following fans:

I've also the 1900 rpm ones, but I find them to be a tadd too noisy so I'll be using 1200 rpm this time.

the Black Ice GT Stealth 360 XFlow 360 mm Rad will be inside the case I have my lian-li V2110 drilled with a 360mm fan grill at the top.

I love MCP 655 pumps, but I'm getting tired of having too much tubing, so I plan to get a pump/reservoir mobo is this any good?

Also, do I have to install my 120mm rad too? would the 360mm rad provide enough cooling for the system by itself if I don't use the other one?

Thnx in advance for your advice

looks great, id use only the GTS rad, skip the other, it'll just increase restriction. the pump if fine if you dont add the 120 rad.

one thing that i really wouldnt do is put slipstreams on a rad... they have low static pressure.. you will be better off with some 38mm thick fans, but if you only have room for 25's id get yate loon high's.

PeterWar, if you can somehow get the Black Ice GTX 360, I think you would see some improvement over the GTS rad. I use a GTX480 and I've never been happier. Also, like Chiel said, get 8x of these. 3 for pull and 3 for push for the GTX360 and the other 2 for your other single rad. You will see remarkable temperatures.

I hope you good luck with watercooling
