Waercooling rad and case

hi,i am setting up an extreme gaming pc..now i have some questions about the radiators and case...
my rig ==
core i7 3960x extreme oc'd to 4.5 ghz
asus rampage 4 extreme
g.skill 8x8gb black edition ram
xfx radeon 7970 black edition double deception quadfirex,each card oc'd to 1260 ghz core and 1500mhz memory
so i was thinking of using 3 360mm rads and the coolermaster cosmos 2 case..but the case only supports a thin 360mm rad on top and a 240mm rad on bottom....so how many rads should i buy and which case?
will the cosmos 2 do the job?
i was thinking of buying the xspc rx360,,,but cosmos 2 doesnt support em...plz help

thnx in advance
mukit

    I like big cases for water cooling but they are not cheap. in my opinion though well worth the expense for the added versatility of the case
  2. thnx for the reply..but i found an awesome case..i dont think thres any thing better than this for watercooling..

  3. yes i like that case as well
  4. Why not use whichever case you like the look of, and build an external radbox?
    I even saw some for sale recently if you don't have the skill/time/knowledge to build one yourself

    Nope, check this out, I have my Pc on top of my Radbox and tubing running between.
    totally sealed and almost silent

    you design the loop with quick disconnectors where needed to make things easy on yourself so run your tubing out of the main case, then have connectors so you can unplug the box if required
    These are the Ebay things I saw though, not my cup of tea but a good start for an external setup,

    hmm,,,i'll have to think about that..:/
  8. It doesn't have to look like mine, you design it how you wish,
    I liked the idea of huge tubes as a visual effect and designed it accordingly, you could just have the tubing going from Pc to the box if the chunky look isn't you hehe
    the box can be under the Pc or six feet away out of sight, its all how you want and we design it around your wants/needs, its half the fun of a project to me, overcoming obstacles and getting the result you want to work :)

  12. Watercooling isn't difficult once you understand the functionality and components needed.
