+1 to both of you for sticking with me!

Don't thank me, thank the countless people who have helped me.

We all have to start somewhere, that's why I always look at the unanswered posts and try to spread as much knowledge as possible.

So there's no way to connect the tubing on an aio unit to the 7990 block? I guess they come assembled as cpu coolers, as that's what they are intended to be.

Pretty much all you would need you can buy kits that come with almost everything you need i even parted out below everything you would need to setup a loop for the 7990 and a cpu to have good temps on both thing is water cooling is not cheap you will drop 400-800 when you get into it with a gpu. Below is everything but fans you would need to get a loop up and running but your case you have will play a big role on what type water cooling you can do on what rads it will fit.

I feel like a 360 and a 240 is a bit overkill for what he wants. It's up to the OP, though. After all, it is his money. biggrin.gif

Also, compression fittings are not needed, simple barbs will do. However, compression fittings are very sexy...

Don't forget biocides, distilled water, and things like that! Make sure to read up on a few watercooling guides and see what would fit your needs the best.

not over kill i have a 2600k and 2 7970s under water 360 and 240 keep my temps under 50c on the gpus and 60-70 on the cpu gota remmber 7990 is like 2 7970s thats alot of heat that is dumped into the rads he might get away with 1 360 but if he plans to overclock he would need the 240 to keep good temps. Up to the op as always just showing him its not so hard to get the stuff he needs i always like to have more rad space then needed so i dont end up with sucky temps.

True, I'd suggest the OP gets one 360 and if he isn't comfortable with the temps, add a 240 later on. I wish I had the money to blow on all my water cooling equipment I want, but I don't. mad.gif
It'd be more cost efficient that way. I'm all about spending a crap ton of money and go completely overkill, but not everyone looks at their build that way. tongue.gif

Lol water cooling is bad cause you always need more my first water setup was 1 rx 360 cpu block and 1 5870 gpu block, then i bought a 5970 and a rx240 to add to my loop then i sold them both and got 1 7970 with a block then a 2nd. But good thing with water cooling the pump and rads will always work on anything you change and most newer cpu blocks also.

Is this at all possible for gpu cooling? My case will most likely only support a 240mm rad, so would that be enough to cool a card like this?

...have been running twin 7990s, 1st for a business app - then just for fun...water-cooled both of them with 2x EK blocks I got from FrozenCPU here: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/19960/ex-blc-1451/EK_Radeon_HD_7990_SE_VGA_Liquid_Cooling_Block_-_Acrylic_EK-FC7990_SE.html?tl=g30c309s1876&id=IDDjA9wr

...there were some issues with both blocks re depth of some of the threads at the back, but managed to solve that on my own....performance results were jaw-dropping - just what you would expect...from max voltage oc 92 C dropped temps to low-mid 40 c, albeit with a very powerful GPU-only w-c loop (880mm x60+mm; two MPC 655s).

...a very worthwhile investment, even before running custom 7990 Bios w/ extra voltage thumb.gif

Thank you for taking the time to put together all of those components. I'm planning on waiting for the Fractal Design Arc Mini R2 to drop in early October so I can save up some funds and have the space for both a 360 and 240.
