Some might argue that the 2X120mm radiator is not enough to do both your CPU and GPU, but these are GREAT radiators, and while I'm not sure as I've never actually used one, I think it would be enough- anyone else have a say on this?

Here's a worklog and a bit of a guide for H2O noobs that I made when I first ventured into the water waaaaay back in March ;-)
I agree with this, Buy that kit. it's basically the same system i have bar 2 differences and is less than 1/2 of what i paid.

Those Quads put out so much heat. That PA120.2 might do the trick though, for a complete wc system. I'm supposed to receive my dual rad (the Swiftech model) on Tuesday - I'll compare the single rad to that new dual later that night.

I have a question what is the difference between these two rads HW Labs Black Ice GT Stealth 360 Triple 120MM Water Cooling Radiator Black 1/2IN Barbs and this one ( besides the price)
HW Labs Black Ice GT Xtreme 360 Triple 120MM Water Cooling Radiator Black 1/2IN Barbs
I am also wondering if this size rad would fit in a gigabyte aurora 570 case ( preferably in the bottom)?

The stealth is thinner and has less cooling surface area and therefore does not cool as well, but on the plus side, it has less air resistance and so doesn't need a fan with as much oomph as the GTX does. The GTX is best used with 38 mm panaflo type fans so when you get the whole thing together, you're looking at almost ten cm of thickness, so you might need to consider that when planning your layout. I have the GTX installed in a p180 and am very happy with it.

Here is how I put the RAD in the top of the case. Bad pics as usual. Also, yes, I am definitely cooling that 8800GTX. And it stays nice and cool, under 52 degrees full load, with a nice OC.
