Haha. I think I know where I need to send my computer to get all of the coolant removed when it's time for a cleaning:

I've got the fans all wired up and mounted. I had to switch from an under-mount setup that I had before as it put the fan's electric motor too close to the electron guns and it introduced a very faint wobble to the picture. So now they are mounted a good 2.5 inches further and the picture is crystal clear.

Testing the setup with the Skyrim AFK camera spin that is very good for testing for motion problems (blur/ghosting/stuttering etc).

The motion, clarity and picture quality is far higher than my previous LCD setups. This is going to make for epic gaming! At 4320x2304 @ 80Hz, it has become very apparent that I need some upgraded video cards. Especially trying to keep a minimum of 80 FPS under all circumstances pushing 10-megapixel's. Every single game I ran required more than 2GB of memory, so it looks like I will have to hold off on the vanilla 2GB GTX 680's and get 4GB FTX 680's for 4-way SLI. Almost positive I will be pairing a 3770K up with Gigabyte's Sniper 3 Z77 motherboard that has confirmed 4-way SLI support.

All in all this is an awesome build! However, I am skeptical about your cooling solutions. Well, just the phase change to be exact. It looks like you are planning to just flip a switch and pump coolant to already installed waterblocks and watercooled parts. This really isn't possible with phase change, so I would reconsider your design and make the phase change unit into a chiller that can be turned on or off. You will most likely not be able to reach sub-zero temps with the setup that way, but it would still be awesome.

Eh? The phase change unit has been completed and running for a year (I am just adapting it to work with this new setup also):

What do you guys think, 4x 4GB RAM or 2x 4GB RAM? I wonder with IB if 2x sticks (easier on memory controller) will still be able to overclock higher than 4x sticks as with CPU's of the past. 16GB may be overkill as with 8GB with my current system I don't use it up for gaming.

Ah well that makes sense. You will be using the unit to cool a tank of coolant that is capable of sub-zero temperatures. Then it could go through the liquid cooling system just fine. So in effect, it is a large chiller unit. I thought you were attempting a direct die phase change cooling setup to integrate.
