My System Specs

Default

Are you looking for OC headroom, a quiet system or both?

With 2 GPUs and a CPU, you need more than a 360 rad. You can use a 360 rad, but there wont be a big difference compared to running on air. And if you want to use a 360 and a 240 rad, or a (2) 360 rads - it wont fit on the 800D without any modifications.

As for money is no object - really mean that. Cause it $$$$.

As for EK Supreme HF, theyre great CPU block. Not sure if they require to switch mounting brackets for the 1155. If they do, they are A PAIN to switch, just to let you know.

As for fans, im using 3 xigmatek fans on push on my swiffy rad and it gives me a good load temp. But some people have used Gelids, Gentle Typhoon for fans.

Stock fans on the 800D are crap. Ive used 3 xigmatek fans as intake and it moves a lot of air and keeps my case cool. No personal experience with Noctua's, but ive heard they are great as well.
