Radiator Question
Would the XSPC EX280 radiator be enough for an overclocked 2600K @ 5.0GHz and two GeForce GTX 560 Ti factory overclocked @ 900MHz?

If you plan on using 2 GT AP-15's w/ Bgears 140mm adapters I'd say yes.

Thanks for the info. I was planning on using 2 GT AP-15s. Depending on the case it's between the Corsair 600T or the Obsidian 650D I might do push/pull if I can.

EX280 won't fit properly in the top of the 650D or 600T w/o modification. You would need to have a HWLabs or Thermochill radiator. As they are the only ones w/ the proper 20mm fan spacing.

Can you think of another white mid-tower case in that price range that would work with the XSPC EX280?

Would a CM Storm Trooper/Stryker work?

The NDA was just lifted on the Stryker today, it's a very interesting case. My question is I might go with 2x 240mm rads If I can fit the a 240mm rad in the bottom. My only concern is my power supply. It's 180mm in length.

I can't find documentation on the supported length. I know Tiny Tom Logan will have an in depth review of this case on his YouTube channel where he will explore water cooling with it. He was just waiting for the NDA to be lifted.

He already has... that's why I posted :p..
unfortunately, it's not much in depth, because the trooper and stryker are very similar, except for color changes and side panel changes.. check it out on youtube..

I will have to check it out when I get home from work.

Here is an idea for a water cooling layout in the CM Storm Stryker. It's not scale The pump is in the res.
