Passive would work okay, but then it probably wouldn't be a whole lot better than a 4x120mm rad.

 

That shroud is a real pain in the ass, as there are just way too many dead spots.

The thing with radiators is....

 

If a dual 120 rad keeps things cool, a 10 foot one wont do any better.

looks interesting and it also comes with a 4x180mm shroud option it seems which should suit these fans rather nice

Silverstone SST- AP181 Black 180mm Case Fan $29 http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_p...oducts_id=15257

thats looks like a brilliant idea dasa, would love to chuck a GTX480 in the loop :P

 

edit: where did you find out about the 180mm fan shroud?

It will if there are more and more things on the loop, its true with anything, more surface area = greater cooling capacity.

 

That Rad would be great for running like 2-3 GTX480s and an overclocked i7 or something.
