I seriously doubt that would be enough rad for that Oc on the 930. I recommend at least a 2x120mm rad with 4 fans in a push pull config. You could go with this kit: Swiftech H20-220-APEX ULTIMA CPU Liquid Cooling Kit w/ Apogee XT for $240 and add 2 more fans and it should cool it quite well. -ouch1 Can't find your answer ? Ask !

If you're looking 4.5 ...well than I'm thinking ya gotta go water. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
