I have a quick question on what to heatsink. would it be a good idea to sink the motherboard along with the back of the 7970 graphics cards. I circled on the pics on what i would guess to sink and I wanted your opinions on what im missing or if its worth it. attached is also a picture of the heatsinks i have on hand to work with along with thermal tape 3m. my final question can you guys circle the places on the back of the card to sink?

The issue with the duel 120's is they both won't reach the GPU's laying down and then I face the same clogging issue.

For the one that you can lay down, if you like, you can get various 120mm filter kits that will fit on the grill before securing your fan or rad in place.

I really need to mod this into loop using all my rads and Seidon pumps or just get a 360 and 280 rad and make loop with these pumps.

can anyone help me with my posts earlier on this page? any advice i could really use.

Your board already has a cooler on the vrms but if you want to sink them chips use the alu ones.
There is nothing to cool on the back of the card so your ok there
