I am not sure about the XSPC blocks but the EK blocks are great and you will need the following if you get 2 EK blocks. I also installed the XSPC Raystorm and it matches the EK Blocks great.

I originally had just a CPU loop and last night I installed water blocks on my gtx 680's and added them to the loop. I have the Rampage IV Extreme which has 3 slot spacing between the 2 cards. if your mobo is the same you will need -

2 blocks for your cards

Triple Slot Serial or Parallel Bridge - and make sure you order a blank to cover the unused slot. I used a triple Bridge because it fits my mobo and allows me to upgrade to a third card in the future.

The Bridge uses 2 fittings of your choice. Make sure to get 2 fittings for each component and maybe some 45 and 90 degree angled fittings - I guess if you are getting the kit it should have all the fittings you need. Just make sure to get 2 extra for the sli bridge.

I finished my loop last night and my cards went from 45 degrees idle to about 22 and they are very silent. I haven't gamed yet because i finished late last night.

I will post for you what i use in my own build then we can go from there if you wish to go a different route -

90 degree rotary compression - This will thread in to your bottom video card so you can run a drain plug loop from it.

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_346_830_446&products_id=32564

1/2'' drain plug -

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_346_830_829&products_id=28341

sli bridge kit -

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=28435

1/2''x3/4'' compression standard X6 - 2 will mount to your bay res, 2 will mount to your rad, the other 2 will be used in combination with a 45 degree rotary fitting which i will explain as we continue.

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_346_830_827&products_id=28357

45 degree rotary fitting X2 - 1 will be used in conjunction with a standard compression fitting on your cpu block so you can come off your rad in to the cpu on a clean angle, the next 1 will be used for your top gpu to cpu feed so you can come in on a clean angle.

These are stop plugs you can use as well since the XSPC blocks have 7 ports -

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_346_830_829&products_id=28342

Also i would use different tubing then the stuff that comes in the all in 1 kit you chose -

Durelene which is cheap and quality and order about 20'.

I finished really late last night and didn't get a chance to take pics. I will take some pics tonight. I couldn't believe when I saw 20 degrees celcius.

You should pick the components yourself. I almost got the kit but I am so happy I didn't. I was able to get a much better pump then the kit offered. I can help you pick out what you need.


The EK Blocks with the bridge look really nice. I'm sure someone can help you with what you need for the XSPC blocks but I only know what I needed for the EK Blocks. I have the XSPC Raystorm and the EK Blocks match it really nicely. Plus the EK bridge is really nice looking.

I went with 1/2"-3/4" white tubing and matching black compression fittings. I also bought some barbs for places that aren't visible because they are much cheaper. Also make sure to get a couple of 45 degree and 90 degree g1/4" extenders. They really helped me with the tube routing.
