redders be my guest dude! 3 fans in 1 channel... that's good. I suppose you can do this with a regular resistance/voltage controller as well? For me it's really coming down to noise. The noctua HS and fan would do a good job at cooling the CPU - and do it with little noise too. If I go for the i7, I will probably be able to get that CPU to ~4Ghz without a prob. So I can't really see what WC will do for me that air won't. But the only issue left is the noise from the 4870x2. Is there a way to deal with it on air? Are there some better HS+fans for this gfx? Ninja Edit: Can I control the fan speed on the gfx?
