oh i get it now, so you have 120mmx3fans.

what did you do with the fans that came with the armour? Are they worth using - i mean should i get 3 more new reliable/efficient fans? DOH! What did you do with the fans that came with the armour?

why arent you using the armour anymore??

this is making me uneasy

Is this the pump you recommend?

Thnx to ai too, will get full block
The 360 Im sure refers to 3 X 120mm fans. That pump is Very good.

Also the Lian Li 600 would be Plenty for your comp. (and really quiet too)

I think where Ham is going is saying better to have Extra just in case.

Thnx everyone! This is a great forum.

Yes I live in london.

Well I just bought the OCZ Gamexstream 850W PSU, so that sorts out that out

And please verify if the Alphacool Laing D5-Pump 12V 1/2" is a good choice.

There are a couple of things I need some pro advice on:

1) The D5 pump only comes with ˝” fittings.

I've read on other forums that 3/8” are better for bending around and for heat dissipation etc.

Would should I do?

I'm thinking of getting these coz they look awesome but pls tell me whether or not PVC is gd or not:

http://www.arcticmod.com/computer-mo...-id-tubing.htm

or

http://www.dangerden.com/store/produ...t=0&bestseller

seems more resilient??

2) The thermaltake case comes with 2 fans at 1200RPM.

Is this going to be fast enough to cool an 8800GTX GPU (and maybe a another one in the future), 5HDs, Quad Core, Mobo plus run the pump?

I'm going to get a 3rd rad like you guys suggested, but which one should I get? And if i need to replace the thermaltake fans for more powerful ones please tell me.

3) Oh and additional stuff that I havent mentioned like reservoirs... am i missing on anything else??

Thnx!

Reservoir is your call. You can either get a reservior or go with a t line (is that what its called?)

For the fans they should be sufficient but if your going for quiet you could get these

Very nice indeed.
