ah ok about 400 quid to spend and overclocking gpu's they get seriously nosiy at about 70c then the cpu.

oh and a couple ov corsair 8gb memory is it worth wcing them or just keeping them on air cooled.

I got the gtx 460s to core clock 890mhz and mem clock to 2290 playing skyrim stable but like i said very noisy.  

 

What size radiators do i need to cool the gpus and the cpu?
