Hey guys, man im making alot of threads..... anyway, I need a question answered. I have a custom built WC unit, I don't know jack about them. I need to know its cooling power limit. Here are some pics. and i want to know if it would be powerful \ effecient enough. to cool 1 I7 and 2 GTX285's along with a chipset.

Oh and its got a Apogee GT on it, ithink. not absolutly sure.

No worries, the PA120.3 is an awesome rad. And if you really want to push it even more, try fans in push-pull configuration.
