    Yes the rad is fine, but your cutting it close on the heatload. If your a uber overclocker your CPU temps can be a bit high. Lots of i7/GPu loops are looking at a total rad size of 120x4. So two MCR 220's in series would be better.

    Rain, that block is the current best on the market.

    That CPU block is excellent, in tests it outperforms the Swiftech GTZ and Fuzion2 by a fairly good margin, while also not being super restrictive. If I had known how good it was when I was putting my loop together, I would have bought it instead of the GTZ.

    Also, OP, don't forget to get a reservoir.

    Conumdrum - the Heatkiller block is actually outperformed by at least the Koolance 350 and possibly the EK Supreme blocks but they're both incredibly restrictive and you need a super strong pump and that block to be the only one in the loop to get the performance out of them. Just thought I'd point that out.

    Where can you get this cpu block at? Just doing a quick google search while im in the library (will look harder when I get home) did not pop up any stores that I recognized. Although I did find out that the CPU Rev3.0 1366 LT is ~$50 while the CPU Rev3.0 1366 (No LT) is ~$85. Whats the difference lol?

    lt has a plastic top and the non lt has a copper top. it performs about .5C better then the lt version


    both can be found at sidewinders computers, if they have stock.

    I think the 120x3 rad will be enough. Of course a quad or a pair of 120x2 in series would be better, but in this case I don't believe it would make a huge difference.

    stock, no. overclocking on both yes.

    I suppose. The fans used on the radiators would play a big factor as well. Either way, acceptable temps can easily be had with a 120.3, even if both the CPU and GPU are overclocked.

    Can I ask how much this set-up is costing you and where you are getting your parts?

    i also thought i should add that the EVGA X58 Classified runs EXTREMELY HOT. From some reviews it went up to 90C after just 30 minutes of being on.

    I have heard this to. would this set up without cooling the gpu but instead cooling the mobo work? Or would a bigger radiator be needed?
