    Those cards are just monstrous. Are they heavy too, or do they just look that way?

    Yeah the reference 6-series are bricks in size and weight, but my XFX 6950, non reference, must be 1/3rd the weight of the sapphire card. But it has a really crappy cooler.

    Not bad actually, it's kinda the same unit that asetek supply for the antec khuler 620.
    CPU is overclocked to 4.2Ghz for benchmarks, with this system 4.7Ghz is achievable.

    Wouldn't that blow the heat from the radiator over the components (assuming it is the radiator what I see at the bottom of the pic)? I am not knowing anything about WC so I am a bit curious about that.

    The small amount of heat should be no issue. Sure it's warm air, if the fans blow the right way, but at the same time, the components are far cooler to begin with, thanks to the water cooling, negating that form being an issue. Now, for aircooled rigs, yes, having warm air flowing over them is bad, as they wil luse that warm air to cool. But watercooled rigs don't realyl use the air in the same way...

    The fans are actually helping cool off the MB,RAM, and video card. System is running great with this configuration.

    Also I have 2 Scythe Kaze 3000 38mm on top blow hole Radiator in push/pull. It's alot of air moving through the case.

    Side ways push pull with these fans in a case that would support it would be ultimate cooling. That would put the hot air out of the case and then put some other fans on MB area too cool.

    I'm happy with what I have right now.
