At the end, they show a system where it is powering the CPU, 2x gpus and i think 2 or 3 240 rads.
You can make it passive of course, but the cooling performance, the very reason it's better than air cooling, isn't as good.
Also Zalman showed a newer reserator -> http://www.pcper.com/images/reviews/...eserator-2.jpg
You never should try to remove fans on your radiator unless you have tons of fans in your case which is still tricky I think. 50° is the max water temp for most pumps and if you exceed that you pretty much can damage your pump.
In addition, what is the point of removing two fans from the system if you'd have to install another half dozen to obtain enough incidental airflow through the radiator to compensate for it?You never should try to remove fans on your radiator unless you have tons of fans in your case which is still tricky I think.

I never did try watercooling, right now I think ill be buying a h220 as soon as it hits the market here in portugal, one of the stores here lists is at 125 euros for preorder which is like 15 euros more than an h100i with all the goodness of it being made by swiftech it seems like a logic choice, the pump placement might be odd bu its a powerful pump and they have tested it with 2 7970 plus the cpu and they have awesome awesome temperatures to show for it, it might just be the perfect entry level kit which is actually an entry of some sort.
From the many reviews I've read the H220 is of high quality which is built with solid components and it will last you a very long time compared to other closed loop water coolers.
Here is a breakdown from what seems to be a huge fan of the H220
