Default What do you think of this?

Well I'm Australian, and i mostly just lurk on this forum reading about all the great mods and awesome water cooling! I wanted to get some opinions or even advice on external water cooling, I've already done a few loops before and just hate having it all internal in my cm690 nvidia edition as its just too cramped!

I was looking at getting on of these: Phobya Radiator Stand Dual-2x120mm "Bench Edition"

and then getting another black ice stealth rad to put along side it.

thoughts? opinions? other suggestions?

thanks canucks!

Actually that seems kind of cool. If they had a a version for 3x120mm radiators I wouldn't mind purchasing one. Although they aren't available in North America.

EDIT: Looks like they have a 3x120mm version.

yea was gonna say they have one! an all in one unit would be ace for simplicity, just hook it all up and have some quick release valves on the cpu in and out lines and you can move it around easy as! would make switching parts dad easy too. ( i think i just convinced myself lol)

would these work for disconnects?

The performance of Mo-Ra's is debatable. It seems that 2 3x120mm radiators will out perform an Mo-Ra.

This 2 X 120 stand seems cool. Put 2 good 120 rad in it and it will perform like hell. Will also look cool for an exterior complete loop or even intern if you have the room.

mian problem is that they are super expensive, and id have to get them imported and shipped to AUS, tho im sure a mate form the koolroom could get them in if i asked.

thanks for all the replies guys!

The Mo-Ra's look pretty awesome and i assume are very similar to phobya nova 1080's (which you can also get a 4x180mm fan mount for). But I also think you could get more performance from a couple individual 360 rads (something about the water flow channels being very limited).
