    I think I'm going with a Dual 80mm Radiator setup. It fits on my case perfectly and its rated for 662.91W which should be able to dissipate the heat in conjunction with a swiftech 317gph pump. Because of the boost I get from the radiator and the better pump, I've decided to add a Maze 4 GPU block into the system. Well Here is the sketch I made of my current setup. As always questions/comments/problems are welcome.

    Since I can't tell which direction your water will flow in the picture, I'll just attach this. It shows different configurations and how to set up the tube routing to get the best performance. Yours is the fourth one down. If you're not going to use a chipset cooler, just remove this part and keep the order the same. The graph is from the Swiftech installation manuals and was designed for the high flow pump setup you're planning on using.

    The Flow is from Pump to CPU to GPU to Radiator to Reservoir. In reference to the graph, Im confused as where and why the y-connector is placed between the radiator and reservoir.
    At closer inspection... isn't my setup more like the 3rd one?

    I chose the fourth example as you stated you were planning on running a dual radiator setup. If this is not the case, then yes, the third one would be the desired tube routing to use. The Y-connector is only needed if you run multiple radiators as it allows both to be used in parallel instead of series, giving better overall cooling performance.

    Ah I see where you got confused. By dual 80mm radiator I meant this:

    PS: How long till the review on the radbox, sounds interesting.

    It should arrive soon. It will be part of a single 120mm radiator kit but will also include the reservoir. Will test both with and without the radbox since I have a case that can handle the 120mm radiator already.
