Well if you just cooling a cpu only a MCR rad would be a much better bang for buck choice.

Bang for buck in the UK aswell? doubt it not really bothered by bang for buck anyway as I want the best money no object. Hoping it will last me for a long time cooling bothe a cpu and gpu. Possibly add a second rad to the loop (2x120mm between the cpu and gpu) rather then getting a bigger one later down the line.
