I don't think it really matters how much space I take up in a case that's the size of a small beer fridge...

I know I could have gone 3/8 all the way through, but I think that the TWO video cards (overclocked) will run the temp of the water up pretty good. So, that's why I went 1/2". And the cost difference is nominal.

What fans do you guys use on your computers? I'm thinking of getting some Scythe fans, but $20 each is a lot of money, especially when the case needs 7 of them!!!

Or, should I just put the really good, quiet ones on the rad, and put the fans I have (a bunch of misc fans) on the other holes and just drop the speed to nothing?

One more thing...my buddies and I were talking about hose clamps. I'm thinking of going with worm drive clamps from Canadian Tire...input?

ALSO...How much more cooling do you get from a 3 x 120 rad vs a 2 x 120? Is it substantial? Has anyone here ever done a dual rad system?

Thanks again...pics coming next week...
