    a little more insight on ur radiator pump setup..
    10 rads will more n likely be overkill and wont help past 2 or 3?..and u wont need 6 pumps thats also overkill

    u can only dissipate so much heat..a 120x3 can do bout 300watts of heat and keep whatever ur cooling about 5C above ambient..and bout 500watts heat at 10c above ambient

    so if u want extremely low temps id say if you bought probably 3 120.3's or 2 x 120.4's

    but what id suggest starting with..is a single 120.4 radiator with one pump...something like a mcp355 with a top or a mcp655 vario using 1/2" fittings all around..
    see what ur temps are like..if you are unhappy purchase another 120.4 to throw in the loop..still one pump should be enough for this..see if the temps are more in ur ballpark range..if they are then ur good to go..if not maybe another one..but ull get to a point where adding more rads wont give anymore performance..
    i doubt ull need more then 2 120.4 rads if you choose a good brand like thermochill and use a push/pull fan configuration on it..also use good fans..idk how u are about noise so maybe saying if u want it silent or quiet or doesnt matter may help in a suggestion on which fans to use..

    Have fun trying to fit those to your case or even near to your case.

    Seriously, 120.3 rad is more than enough for one gpu, if you want to watercool 2, get 2*120.3 loops and if you want to cool 3, just put all 3 to same loop with 2*120.3 rads. GTX285 can handle 80decrees with ease, 90decrees under load is no problem.

    With those loops you can cool those to 50decrees (I think ?) and overclock. Those are designed to work at high temperatures, getting those from 50decrees to 20decrees will not increase lifespan of those gpu's. You can try to cool those near to 20 decrees with 120*120*38mm 4000rpm Delta fan's, but noise will be 60db. What I'm saying is that if you get 10*120.3 rads you will be using 30 fans. Even if those are quiet 20db ones 30 of those will be quite noisy and temperature drop will not be worth it.
