Greetings everyone!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys long time PC gamer here (Rainbow Six days). New to the Overclock.net forums and ready for a new system build. I haven't upgraded my PC since around mid 2006 and I'm ready to build a completely new water cooled system based on the Sandy Bridge platform. I'm a systems manager by day and hardcore gamer (Real Time Strategy & FPS) at night when my wife permits.

Here's what I have in mind so far:
1 Intel i7 Core 2600k 3.4Ghz Processor
1 Asus/Gigabyte Z68 Motherboard
2 EVGA GTX 580 Hydro Copper 2 or 1 EVGA GeForce GTX 590 Classified Hydro Copper
1 Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3 RAM
2 Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB 7200 RPM HDD in RAID 0
1 OCZ Vertex 3 240GB SSD
1 HT OMEGA Claro Halo XT PCI Interface Sound Card
1 Coolermaster Silent Pro Gold 1000W PSU
1 Corsair Obsidian 800D Case

Which brings me to the reason why I'm here. I have zero experience in water cooling and overclocking. In the 12+ years of gaming I've never overclocked any component on my PC. Now is the time to get into the whole water cooling and overclocking hobby. I hope I can get some good advice from some of you experts out there.

Thanks for reading.
