    So I have ordered the Coolit Vantage ALC Cpu cooler, its on its way!http://www.coolitsystems.com/index.php/en/vantage.html

    So they say the fan is 120cfm...dunno if i buy that or not. My plan is to do a push/pull config on the Rad, any sugestions? They have to be PWM fans. This is what im thinking about: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11636/fan-744/Scythe_Slip_Stream_120mm_x_25mm_PWM_High_Speed_Fan_-_SY1225SL12H-P.html?tl=g36c435s1104

    Wish i could find some Led fans, but not the highest priority. Any other suggestions?

    As far as 120CFM for the stock fan, not unless it has been changed since I tested one. I would guess 80-90 CFM at best.

    The slipstreams are fine, but dont forget the Vantage uses very tight fins, so to get really good results, you are going to want to run those fans at near full speed;)

    Did you do a review on one? I looked but didnt see a review. Im not going to be going for MAJOR overclocks anyway, more like 3.8ghz or so on my 930. I figured that the 120CFM rating was a bit high. But im guessing two of those slipstreams in a push/pull should yield good results, likely better than a Xiggy DK!

    the ALC is nice compared to the H50, as i think it has a much easier install kit to work with.

    Also a PRO TIP;) The temp you will see on the display is not the temperature of the CPU, but rather the temperature of the coolant in the loop. Have fun with the orientation friendly and multi-color LED screen.

    Here is mine I just installed in a game rig:

    After some revisions in the mounting and removing two of the four push/pull fans I was able to install the top cover on the LianLi without any surgery.

    Removal of two fans had little effect on performance.

    rick, is that dual rad version retail, or did you get that direct from CoolIt that way?

    Coolit made it specifically for me. It may be one of two existing.
