My System Specs


IMO the MCR320 will be good enough, but you're going to get some high temps in you want a really quiet build (depends on your ear).

However, that being said, even an XSPC or Thermochill would have perhaps just a few degrees better performance with lower fan speeds, but I highly doubt it'd be worth almost double the price.

I'd second getting a second rad somewhere if possible. If not, use the WC set up on the 5870 and use an H50 or something similar for the CPU.

On a side note, I'm personally using an MCR320 with an E8400 @ 4.2GHz, and 4870 lightly OC'ed and my NB. My temps aren't the best, but it manages (under 70 load for CPU).

Should note that I'm using the MCP655 pump on speed 4 as well as 1000~RPM Gelid Wings.
