    Hi Dustin,
    I would have a look at a different fan model than you have there with the Corsair. The reason is illustrated in Martins Liquid lab tests.
    63mm is a relatively thick rad and has a FPI of 11 compared to the Alphacool of 10FPI. The Corasairs have a static pressure of 1.2mmH2O at their max RPM of 1650 while a fan like the Evercool Titan TFD-12025H12ZP Kukri has a static pressure of nearly 3.0mmH2O at the same RPM.
    In short, for a rad of that thickness I think you are going to want a fan with much higher static pressure.
    I noticed you have three fans listed so I assume you are going to be having a 'push' setup so it makes it even more important to have fans that have a SP of at least in the 2-2.5mmH2O range. Better still in the 3.0-3.5 range if you are going to be doing any OC'ing. And of course your ambient temp situation should be taken into account as well. I am using the Alpha cool XT and UT series listed on the MLL charts you can see in the link below and tried a great many fans before settling on the CM Excalibur 120mm fans (3.53mmH2O) and can tell you that even going from the Cougar COUGAR CF-V12HP (2.2mmH2O) to the Excaliburs made a discernible difference in cooling performance.
    My 2 cents worth

    I was planning to just do a pull config with the rad to deep as much dust out of it. I dont know if SP matters with that

    It most certainly does.
