So would you say that the RX360 has a lot of "growing room" such that if I up the anti to my build it wouldn't be a constraining point?

It's not the RX360 that will grow it's the number of radiators that will grow. Rule of thumb is one rad (120mm) per major component. So the RX360 is essentially three rads worth.

So if your just cooling your CPU then RX360 is plenty, it's when you start going sli'd gpu's and motherboard mosfets and ram if you really find that necessary where things start to "grow" or your just a cooling whore and looking for the 1 degree

Yeah i've seen that rule quite a bit. I know it's a bit over kill but what the hay.

Do you know where to get AP-15's? Or am I stuck in 2011 when they weren't available anymore.

**edit**

Stuck back in 2011.... LOL

OP, don't even consider coolant. Use distilled water only. Get some PT Nuke as well. Kills all bacteria. ;)

YES! I've seen this, looks awesome. I'm also trying to fill out a haf x, is that a Google sketchup model? Is it accurate with respects to the length of the rad? haven't done any measurements myself
