So i've decide i want a triple/quad 120 one, but there are so many and the prince range is so different im having doubts, is a 60USD enough? is a 110USD too much? And should i worry about cooper rads corroding? And quad ones are worth it, meaning better cooling>?

Feser X-Changer:rockout:
I have a single 120mm cooling a 9770 and a 4870x2, keeps the temps respectably low even while gaming for hours.
Just ensure your fork over the coin for proper water blocks also.

Forgot to mention you won't have to worry about copper water block corroding unless you use a aluminum radiator. There is a work around to this. 1) non conductive coolant like feser UV coolant, or 2) nickel plate your water blocks. This is why koolance nickel, and gold plates all their block. I used to own that exact Koolance radiator and was not happy at all with its performance. Cooled slightly better than my 120mm feser I have now.
