I think im gonna add another Rad on top of my case is the Thermochill rad really that much more better i dont mind the cost if its better this is gonna be for my next computer gonna buy those 6 -core Nehelam intel cpu probably unless AMD really woes me

Im gonna run both the gpu and northbridge as well im wondering i will only need one pump to handle the two rads and since i already have a reservoir on the swiftech rad i wont have to worry aboot liquid not gettin to the thermochill rad ?

The Thermochills are pretty intense.... Put this way, a Dual 120mm Thermochill is about as good as a tripple 120mm Swiftec. Still though, the Swiftec tripple is cheaper. 1 pump is more than enough.

then why dont yu recommend the Thermochill more then i mean i know in my situation i had no room for a reservoir so an intergrated res/rad would be best but i mean i know its a bit pricey but if more performance?

$$. You can buy 3 of the Dual 120mm Swiftec rads for the price of a single Dual120mm Thermochill. If you have the money, I mean go nuts, buy the best there is. But 90% of the time people want best bang for the buck, which is where Swiftech is Strategically placed.

this is a wacky idea but im gonna mount it on the top of the case colored in red and use a radbox to secure the rad i havent seen ayone do it like that? maybe its a bad i dea but i cannot see why not. Lol il also get a chance to fix my loop i just hope the new Intel chips come out soon. But yur right swiftech is a lot cheaper lol i hate not having projects and i dont wanna waste more money in my car lol

SSwilson did a top mount with his older Lian Liu case..the pics are hidden away in the case pics or watercooled section somewhere. Ive been thinking along your lines too as I would like to watercool my next GPU..

It should work, but keep in mind that you'll be putting all of the weight on a single 120 mount vice 2. At the very least I'd get some oversized washers to spread the load over a larger portion of the case. (Especially since your case has verrrrryyyy thin metal)
