Funny thing is I remember someone trawling saying the titan was getting floged left right and centre by owners switching to the 780. Im sure there has been a few but im struggling to find many used for sale. Also used 7970s are everywhere.

So basically I have to look at a 3rd titan. A 4th probably wont be worth while?

Water cooling would be good but should I stay with the 800d or go 900d. I really dont have much space for rads, tanks, pumps etc. Im liking the idea of this i love doing projects.

The 800d is perfectly fine for watercooling and I'm sure you could quickly google many WC setups that utilize the 800d case. In my opinion the watercooling would be a much better investment in the long term as you can always use the radiator/pump and the only thing that you will have to switch out is your waterblocks when you upgrade. I'm not entirely sure what the performance gap would be between 3x titans vs. 2x heavily overclocked WCed titans, but there are many more "pros" to consider as well. Watercooling will also significantly decrease the noise and heat within your case, prolong the life of your hardware, and decrease the amount of dust moving throughout your case.

Noise is starting to bug me a little now i have gone to 3x 3D 144hz monitors instead of the 1440p samsung that i had. I guess I will start a new thread on watercooling for me so people can help an leave this as a little short read on what was decided. Thanks DoogieHouser hope to catch you at the new thread! I will PM you! Cheers
