Nigel. No sense wasting money on another PSU when it is not needed IMHO. You have more than enough.

Whoa. For some reason this sounds ridiculous. 5 pumps? 9x120 rads? How many systems are you cooling? Do they even MAKE 9x120 rads? And hard drives under water? They never get too hot if you have adequate airflow. Heck, they barely get warm with no air...

Did you know that Hard Drives suck up mere single digit watts, like 3-7 W? That's nothing.

Its a bit overkill but those rads KILL flow. I want to keep everything close to ambient short of going with a Boreas which without taking my fluid down to sub ambient temps can't do the job. Yes there are 2 9x120 rads that I know of the Magicool 1080 and the Watercool MO-RA2. My setup will go as follows Res> Dual Top Pump> GTX360> Pump> 9x120> Pump> 9x120> Pump> 9x120> Mosfet> Mosfet> CPU> RAM(maybe)> NB/SB> GPU> GPU>. So either I use the 5 355's or I use 2 RD30's; one in the rad box and one in the PC case. Should be neat.
