Could somebody give me a ballpark number of what I would need to spend to watercool two 780s and a cpu?
Szedged posted this 2 pages ( or more if you are on 10 posts a page) back...
a good cpu and 1 gpu loop can be relatively cheap if you do it right
1x xspc cpu block, 49.99
1x EK 780 block, 110.99
1x optional backplate, 29.99
1x xspc dual bay res pump combo 59.99
1x xspc ex 360 radiator 59.95
8x xspc generic barb fittings, 1.99 each
primochill tubing 6 feet adv lrt 16.50
2x 1 gallon distilled water from walmart, 2.00
total for that set up
plus whatever fans you want, complete loop right there for under $400.
Add another ~110 for a second waterblock. & 5$ for a bottle of dead water.

You are probably right... Either way, get your CPU OC as high as possible, every bit helps. I'm pushing 4.5 right now @ 1.3v (Delidded, CLU, water cooled) i'm only using two rads atm, 360 slim, and a 240 monsta.Edited by skupples - 10/16/13 at 12:02pm
