i woulde use F3's instead

and if the H70 has a good review then that over the zalman or the megahalms

asus 5870 rev 2 is a very goog card

have a look at the xigmatek utgard,it is very good at air and watercooling.

Thanks! I had already bought the WD HDD's when I found out about the F3's, the F3's do look nice. I am planning on water cooling in the future, but it will be a custom loop, so the H70 didn't seem like a good investment.

Wouldn't a larger case be better for watercooling? the inside of a 902 seems small (smaller than a 300 because of the plastic top)



Something like a 1200 or a HAF 932 would be better for watercooling?
