AH, i didn't do enuf homework...i just realized the thermalright fan start-up voltage is 7v, so it prolly won't work on my fan controller...gonna have to return this...no biggy tho...i don't think it'll fit anyway, since the eco's rad is taking up so much space...it's hogging the top rear fan area, LoL...

pics to come tonite...

So, i managed to keep everything without returning the fans and stuff. I decided to keep the thermalright x-silent running at max 900rpm, cuz it's friggin' quiet anyway.

Here's what i did:
1. There are two 140mm fan exhaust vents at the top of my machine. I hooked-up eco rad to the one that's furthest back.
2. Then, i attached the 140mm thermalright x-silent (running at max 900rpm) to the exterior of the case, on top of where the rad is.
3. Then, i reversed the 120mm nzxt case fan, to pull air in from the rear of the case. So, it's going in from here, and then right out the rad. Fan-controlled.
4. I have a 140mm nzxt case fan, beside the thermalright. Fan-controlled. So, that's two 140mm exhausts at the top of the case.
5. Then, the Gelid side intake, and nzxt front intake. Both fan-controlled.

Overall, here are the temps, using ASUS Probe:
IDLE, On lowest settings for case fans & the thermalright @ 900rpm: CPU @ 35C & MOBO @ 43C
LOAD, On lowest settings for case fans & the thermalright @ 900rpm: CPU @ 57C & MOBO @ 53C
LOAD, On highest settings for case fans & the thermalright @ 900rpm: CPU @ 52C & MOBO @ 48C

Not bad at all. Running my Phenom II X3 710 with unlocked 4TH core and overclocked to 3.25GHz.

Now for the pics (sorry for the crappy quality):
