those cards aren't refference so you will need universal gpu blocks plus heatsinks for ram and mosfet

a fullcover block does everything on the gfx card gpu,ram and mosfets but only for that card release e.g 67xx wont go on a 69xx
a universal block does only the gpu but when you upgrade your gfx card chances are you can still use your water block

If you are gonna be cooling 2 GPUS you will probably have enough cooling capability to cool your CPU as well all you will need is to add a waterblock for your CPU. Stick to stock heatsink for now on the cpu and just include it in the watercooling setup. No point spending for an H100 now if you are going custom watercooling.

Also why get twin frozr models if you are going under water? Just get reference ones, ,they might be cheaper and probably more options with full cover blocks.
