Default update my rig, some advice needed ?

hello all,

i going to update my rig (at the signature), and i decided to buy the EK D5 X-Top Rev.2 or the Detroit Thermo D5 Top, and to upgrade my CPU block from Apogee GTX to what you will recommend.

as well i thinking to buy a fan controller that can hold my 6 yates from high to lower RPM (i well connect 3 fans on each line, or other config that the controller will be support of).

thanks a head,

What exactly are you hoping to accomplish with your upgrades? I'm guessing you want things a little quieter, with the fan controller. Are you also looking for better temperatures? A newer waterblock such as the D-tek Fuzion V2 or Swiftech GTZ would probably gain you a few more degrees, without being so restrictive as to choke your cooling loop. The top for the pump will also help a little, but I wouldn't expect it to make miracles happen by itself.
