Here is what I have for now:

Swiftech MCR220-QP
Swiftech Apogee GTZ + Swiftech LGA1366 Hold Down adapter plate
Swiftech MCP655
Swiftech 7/16'' ID Clear Vinyl Tubing
Bitspower High-flow G1/4, 1/2''ID dark plated nickel barbs
Scythe S-Flex 1600rpm, 63.7CFM at 28DBA


I think it's great :P... I think I'll add a t-Line to get a fill port. No reservoir...

Looks good. I'd add fillport/stop fitting although.

Great selection of parts, I am using those same fans, and Sidewinders is sending me another 5 to outfit the rest of my rig. You will be really really happy with them, sub ~1200RPM and you have what I would call sleepable silence levels(I sleep only 10 feet from my pc).

I really have to recommend a reservoir though, t-lines WORK but you just can't beat the bleeding/draining abilities of a well located reservoir. I've done both and I really have to say that a proper reservoir spanks a t-line, any day.

Yeah I was looking at the Ek Water multioption reservoir 150 rev2. Seems to be a great reservoir. It's gonna be cramped all over though with an antec 1200

Will be tight.

It is, I also have one of those:). It's really quite small though, I imagine you should be able to fit it(should).

Some pics of your case and what's in there would be helpful.

The 220 is a great choice for the 1200. It fits perfectly in the front of my 1200 with 4 scythes on it.

Is it on radiator or on the case? Push or pull?

Can you guys tell me if I will see higher temperature when mounting the 2x120mm radiator on top of the antec 1200, just under the big boy fan?
