You can do chipset and RAM cooling for fun or for bling. But these don't produce enought heat to warrant water cooling them. You will not 'need' them at all and you wont see any performance benefit to putting them under water. And RAM blocks are EXTREMELY restrictive so you might have to trade up your pump and watch your flow. Very very few people get the RAM cooled, chipset is a bit more frequant.

But hey, they make water blocks for HDDs and koolance even has a water cooled PSU. So if you get into it, you can get lost in water cooling everything in your case.

Hmm... Water cooled optical drive, power button, LEDs, mobo battery, USB ports, and maybe even water cooled fans! Lol. You did say everything. ^_^

Wait, water cooled PSU? That just sounds dangerous...

The whole PSU is floating in a non-conductive coolant. 500$ for a 1000w PSU. They used to have 1300 and 1600w ones but I guess those got discontinues.

Mind you I'm not against mobo and RAM cooling, I did the mobo on my last two bjilds and will be doing the next one too. But it's for fun, not for performance.

Ya that rad would be pretty overkill. Also, it has to be external. But you would be able to cool a couple graphics cards in the future.
What I recommend is an alphacool ut60 with noiseblocker pwm fans. 1850 rpm would get loud imo.

They are pricey but really nice

If you get a thick rad like the UT60 you won't need very high speed fans

Scythe Gentle Typhoon fans are cheaper and they are the optimal fans for rads. They have the best static pressure to decibel ratio. And static pressure is what you need for rads. But they are not PWM if that matters to you.

I am not too worried about PWM at the moment, but those fans are rather pricey at $20 a pop, seeing as how I am going to need three of them. Then again, the Gentle Typhoon are $17/ea. Pepe, you said the Gentle Typhoon had the best static pressure? What about the 1,450 rpm model? I figure with the UT60 I can go with lower RPM.

I am also wondering if a push/pull would give me any advantage at this stage, or if I should worry about that later...

Oh, and I also have a question regarding tubing. Which kind is the best? I want UV responsive coolant so that the reservoir looks good, but I am not sure what is the best tubing to use. I have seen some very conflicting threads about tubing, some saying PrimoFlex is great, while others warning about plasticizer from it. Any recommendations?

I doubt push pull would give you a whole lot of improvement. Although you could run speed reducers to the 1450 Gentle typhoons, and then use push pull so you have more air flow. As far as tubing, Durelene tubing is some of the best clear tubing, and it's really cheap.

Also, I have heard that the newer Primoflex Pro LRT is very good, and doesn't suffer from the plasticizer issues that the old lrt did.
