You must be well aware of some specialist places. I live in United Kindom.
Thank you in advance.
I wish I could tell you that would be enough, but it's probably not. The standard recommendation for rad size is one unit per cooled component, and some people recommend two units for the CPU. I guess it depends on how much you want to push the system. For your setup you should be looking for something like a triple rad, if not even a quad. The external you linked to says it has one 120mm fan and a heat exchanger. At best this would be good for a CPU. To cool dual 570s (which you're already aware can run very hot) you need to be looking at higher end components. Externals, while seemingly an easy solution, are not always the best bang for the buck. For a little bit more money you can get a dual optical bay res/pump and a good quad rad. For your stats you need to be ready to drop a lot more than it sounds like you're willing/able to right now. I'm not trying to de-motivate you right now, water cooling is awesome and I encourage people who can to do it, but you're trying to cool three rather high end components. It's not going to be cheap. By the way, you should be looking on frozencpu.com for components. They ship internationally for reasonable prices and have everything you need. You're probably not going to find a local shop that has water cooling stuff unless you live near London and even then it might be hard. I'm sorry I sound pessimistic, I just wouldn't want you to spend a bunch of money on components that won't help you any more than the air you're using now, or possibly even worse.
