Nice, looks like the EK Supremacy EVO will be my choice. Now to figure out the other parts.

R9 280 3GB
Seasonic Modular 660W PSU
128 SSD
200 HDD (possibly replacing with a SSD)

So far I have been recommended the following parts.

Pump : Swiftech MCP655
CPU Block: Swiftech Apogee XL (I prefer a clear one I can see the liquid in)
Radiators: Alphacool UT60 360 radiator (top), unsure about the others (if I can fit 3 or just stick with 2)
GPU block I am finding there is no block for the R9 280's. I only see 280X's.

That pump will be alright for your system specs, now go to ekwb.com and check the configuration to see if they have a 280

I have the apogee cpu block and it works fantastic my temps never get above 38 at load and under stress test it gets about 44! but since you are looking to "see the liquid" I would get a ek cpu block the supremacy model as for its actually clear and has the looks that you want! you can fit three radiators inside this case 360 up top and then two dual 120mm rads on the front and bottom so (240mm radiators) I have the UT 80mm 240 in the front 360 black ice stealth or nemesis I cant remember up top and a swiftech 240 high performance edition on bottom.

GPU I dont know if they have any blocks but you can try heatkiller, or the cooling configurator on ekwb.com and see if they do! I know the "X" means reference edition and since its a amd card no full waterblocks gets made really past their reference models.

And that pump is decent I would recommend a D5 pump of some sort. I had that pump and its a good solid pump but when I add sli waterblocks, 2 bigger radiators I upgraded my pump Im not sure if that pump is strong enough to push though my system with 3 rads and 3 waterblocks. But if you just have 3 rads and a cpu block..you kinda went overkill IMO! I would only go three rads if you have cpu and two gpus on the loop!

Awesome, thanks for all your information. I am just trying to get this done correctly and don't want to forget anything. Really putting together a list of parts I need to get and start buying. I checked the configurator and it is pointing to EK-FC7970 full covers, guess they are similar?

Below are what are listed as full covers.
EK-FC7970 CSQ
EK-FC7970 CSQ - Acetal CSQ
EK-FC7970 CSQ - Nickel CSQ
EK-FC7970 CSQ - Acetal+Nickel CSQ

yes, that means the 7970 pcb is the same as the 280. If you chose your card and not just a random 280 card by the same manufacture in the drop down list

where can i find this?

thank you in advance
You need to contact support. Almost like you are setting up an RMA (corsair.force.com). Ask them if they can send you the bracket to align the holes for a 240mm radiator. I only got mine so fast because I also had Corsair Joesph here in the forums check my ticket number. If you did that, they normally don't respond on weekends. Maybe try and call them, and they can set up a ticket for you. I did this last week, and my bracket was delivered about 4 days ago. I'm still waiting for my radiators though. GOOD LUCK

Yup, the Powercolor is the one I have.

So I should only need 2 rads since I plan to only have a CPU and 1 GPU on the loop?

I would especially if your putting at 360 at the top and a 240 in front or bottom. Here is where things get tricky, when doing your loop if you want to make it "future proof" and not waste any money you need to figure out if you plan on buying a second graphics card for crossfire if you do not plan on doing so (either way is fine) you could buy a 280mm (dual 240mm fans) radiator and place it at the front of this case. If you plan on buying another card then I would buy a 240 (dual 120mm fan radiation) as for this case can fit two 240mm rads in the front and bottom but if you go with a 280 rad you can only put it at the front of the case and cant add a 120 rad later unless you remove your 5.25 bay (cd drive, fan controller) or whatever you have in there cage. Otherwise it just wont fit, it comes very very close though! Also make sure you PSU is big enough to handle everything you got running and the pump! If you add another gpu would your psu work or would you have to upgrade that as well! all these little things determine what you should do! So its all based on personal preference and how much money can you spend!

Good questions. Since I don't typically play very high end games (latest I played is Shadows of Mordor) and my single R9 280 3GB held up fine for it. So I do not plan on getting a second GPU. I also might plan on getting a mATX board versus a ATX board for this very reason. I think my Seasonic 660W Platinum PSU should be enough for what I have.

you dont have a lot of room to play with with a 660 psu! Id say your stuck with your one card, unless you upgrade your psu! whats the recommened psu for the 280? I imagine its probably 450-500 watts since its amd? because I dunno about your processor but my intel 4930k takes 130 watts and my new gtx 970's i think is in about the 300 something range never quite looked as for I have a 1200w psu so I dont really pay attention to voltage now days but when you have a psu at your level I would definitely look to getting atleast a 800/850w they are pretty cheap! But just kinda add it up to get an idea to see if your maximizing your psu out! They will work a little above their maximum (660) in your case but its just better overall to have voltage left over so it doesnt work as hard!
