Liquid Cooling advice

Hi guys, this is my current loop

 

CPU Block: Apogee GT

Res: MCRES Micro Revision 2

Rad: MCR-220

Pump: MCP655

Fans: 1x thermaltake fan

Tube: not sure- something totally different.

1x Flow Meter

 

Cpu: i7 920 C0 -oced to 3.4ghz (170x20)

Temps idle: 47

Ambient: +- 5 degrees

 

I'm planning to upgrade the following parts

1) Radiator - RX360 - RX480. (The RX480 is about 35 dollars more and should give me more headroom, hence leaning towards it.)

2) Fan Controller- Used to have a Sunbeam Rheobus but it just died one day. Need help picking one from http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=9_511 . So far leaning towards the NesteQ FanMax but not sure how it stacks up compared to the Sunbeam Rheobus/ Zalman. Does it have enough power to power a ultra kaze 3000rpm or about 2 Gentle Typhoons per channe??

 

3) Fans- Planning to go 4x Gentle Typhoons.

4) Cpu block- Not sure about this, since I might go into TEC cooling.

 

Thanks guys.

Your waterblock is not the best but decent. Throw a trip 120mm rad and 3 fans and your good to go. A quad 120mm wad won't do any better. You w1ll probably gain 5-7 degrees maybe a few more.......

Sorry, what i meant was I need advice on which fan controller to get. Since I'm in Aus, I'm limited to the ones from here

You mean, the RX480 will be 5-7 hotter than the RX360?

No, the gain from your existing system.... The 480 probably won't do any better than the 360.

Thanks mate. Anyone knows whether the NesteQ FanMax 8 is good enough? Would it be able to power a 3000rpm ultra kaze?
