my graphic cards are 04G-P4-2686-KR version, none of my components are overclocked which i'm not looking forward too. 1st gpu is like 40C Idle and 79-82C during load, 2nd gpu is 29-31C Idle and 71 C load. Just really want to water cooled both of my gpus and wanted to make sure i got the right parts for it....

Might I direct your attention over to, "The Mod"? Cause $570 IS CRAZY! Unless your looking to set over-clock records then by all means be my guest. OR you want it to look fabulous.

Also, Overclocking is fun! Just look were you are bra!

Le Mod: http://www.overclock.net/t/1203528/official-nvidia-gpu-mod-club-aka-the-mod

Hey there Thread Neighbor!

Edit: Yea everything looks in order on that pic. The only concern I'd have is making sure you are careful when setting up. As you must have read it can take a few hours to a few days for a water cooled rig to finally settle. Also make sure to do a test when the Mother Board is not powered to ensure that you do not fry your MoBo. There are plenty of guides on this and I really hope it turns out alright for the sake of your rig and wallet.

Buy an antec 620 or similar Aestek cooler and mod both cards, If your really picky like me, lapp the cooler surface plate and mirror the finish.

I've got an ITX case and 2 AIO's with the rad's stacked and I get around 50C max on my GPU.. its nice... its the life man! You dont need to spend all that moneys.

I think I'll go with water cooling instead doing the mod, since I've read so many how to's and reviews about water cooling, and yeah sure $570 is too much but i can do it wink.gif

These are the parts that I bought Wednesday, I wanna make sure I am doing the loop correct.

So the loop goes:
Pump/Res > 240 Rad > CPU > 120 Rad > GPU's > then back to Pump/Res

Also how often do I have to clean it? and how will i clean it?
