Thread Starter 
Since my current 1366 build is starting to get a bit long in the tooth (or at least that's my excuse), I've decided to build a new PC with the following parts (already ordered):

Intel 4770k
EVGA GTX 780
ASRock Z87 Professional
G.SKILL Ripjaws X 16gb 2133
Corsair 650D Case
and a couple of 840 Pro SSDs
(PSU being carried over from previous build)


With my previous build I long considered water cooling but just never quite went the extra step toward doing it. I'd read build logs, watched countless videos, made lists of parts.. but never went all the way. With this build I've decided to just water cool from the beginning. Below is a list of the parts I'm currently planning to purchase and install, and essentially I'd just appreciate it if some of the more experienced among you could look it over and make sure I didn't leave out anything, or make any recommendations on what you might change. Remember, this is all going inside of a 650D, and I'd prefer not having to modify the case much, if at all.

I had initially planned on the loop going in the opposite direction, like this - RES > Pump > 240 Rad >CPU > 120 Rad > GPU > Res, and leaving the top/bottom ports of the res out of the loop so as to make filling and emptying easier. Also, in case anyone was wondering, I plan on removing the bottom HDD cage to fit the pump, and may remove the top one too if necessary and just get creative with HDD/SSD locations.

Any and all recommendations, suggestions, or comments are appreciated. Thank you.
