    What sort of performance difference would you get when comparing a Corsair H100 and a V8 Watercooling Kit 240 from OCUK?

    Is it a great leap in cooling performance?

    Dont know if the shop can give you an actual quantative answer but in short yes, the v8 will be a LOT cooler and quieter

    ^ This... and also gives you ability to expand the loop in the future. I had a CoolIT 240 in the past, then switched to a Phanteks and now have a 360 EK kit and it is worlds apart from the CoolIT I had. And it looks so much better :p

    Don't forget much more exciting and better looking, the expansion is a great point though.

    hmmmmm......

    I have another question, would a 240mm + 120mm rad have enough cooling capacity for an overclocked CPU and SLI stock GTX 580s?

    the rule of thumb would be 120mm rad per component so yes. I would rather a little more headroom personally.

    which case you using?

    Corsair 650D, ive seen 200mm rads on the front intake but it involves a dremel to trim the drive cages and its not something i'd be comfortable with when moving to water cooling for the first time, just want to keep it simple.

    I asked a very similar question recently as to whether my 360 rad would be enough to cool both an overclocked i7 2600k and my 2 7950's. The resounding response was that yes it would be enough. I was told this and still bought an extra 120 :D but i have no doubt the 360 surface area would be enough. I just have to build it all up now....
