Why aren't you looking into haswell if its a new build? I mean there reporting same speed as ivy but at least you get a couple CPU upgrades on the socket...

Think you did your homework!

Welcome to Ocn!

I am waiting for the haswell launch. I've only purchased the PSU, HDD, and OS at this point and will be purchasing the case. I wont be buying the motherboard, ram, and cpu until I see Haswells official information.

My loop design : RES > PUMP > RADIATOR > GPU > VRM > CPU > CHIPSET,

may change it to : RES > PUMP > RADIATOR > GPU > CPU > VRM > CHIPSET

I follow singularity computers closely and in addition to the research I have done, most suggest that order of hardware does not matter so long as the res is before the pump. Opinions wanted on order although.

The orange block is a 480 radiator and the pump will be behind the rad. The 360 rad will most likely go against the 5.25" bays vertically or down below with the 480. I'll make a decision on the 360 placement when the case arrives so I can see how much room I'll have to work with. Pump will most likely be a swiftech MCP655.
