Hello, I am building a gaming computer for myself and I have a question about water cooling. I want to get a Feser triple 120mm radiator but im not sure if its enough? I'm cooling i7 920 cpu, x58 classified 3 way motherboard, and ati 5970 gpu in Lian li pc p80 case. Will this one radiator be enough or should I look to put a dual loop using the Feser triple for the gpu and motherboard, and get a single 120mm radiator for the cpu? I'm open to suggestions. Keep in mind i'm looking for optimal performance not something that will just be cutting the job. I have no experience with watercooling so I don't really know what to expect out of the radiators you know.. Thanks :)

Arent some of the better water cooling kits on about equal to the temps with air? Seems like i read an article stating that water cooling isnt much of a benefit. Especially considering the price tag that comes with it. But i maybe wrong.
