you can get alot with that.....want to go big?lol
If you want a nice block, like Ira said go for a Stinger:
http://www.stingerwaterblocks.mysite.com/
Go for a 480GTX radiator like mine.
A D5 pump, they are great.
And for you 8800GTS you can go with a DD or an EK block, i personally like the EK one more and im getting that.

EK one:http://www.petrastechshop.com/ekfucowaforn2.html

I must agree, build your own!

My LCS Armour is nice and all but has some fundemental flaws. Like the fans on the rad blow warm air into the case. D=

I'll probably go for the GTX360, unless the extra 120mm fan really provides that much more cooling. I'm idling now at 40C at a 64% OC, with what I'd assume this'd automatically be less (If not by that much even), and the 8800GTS is the only other problem child, idling at about 55C, load at 75C. Do you think with those two temps the GTX480 is still the best bet? The main thing I'm concerned about is the potential for moving the beastly thing. The 480 seems just that much larger enough so that it looks impossible to move.

And what's keeping your radiator on top of your case like that? I really like that idea (Even though the Kandalf really isn't the best case for top mounting in my case, cause of these stupid USB things and the vent, but yours looks really good. It's one of the reasons I really liked that Koolance/Lian-Li setup; the radiator fit perfectly on top of it and it looked fantastic.

Also, what fans should I use with either of these radiators?

Thanks!

Yup my top of my Armor is exactly the same as yours, i removed all that junk on top, the USB and took of the vent.
You really dont need and use them.
I could say with some high CMF fans, a GTX480 could handle 2 8800GTX's and a quad core in a loop, so no worries on that Tyorik.
A 360GTX would be fine for your cooling as well, more than fine so too say, i have to admit that the 480GTX is overkill for your pc stats, but if your getting the 360GTX might as well put in a little extra and get the best rad on the market....thats how i look at it.

Fans....depends on, do you might noise?or dont you?
If you do mind noise go with some nice Yate Loons, thats what i have on mine, they are nice,quite and at about $3 a fan, you cant beat that price.
Or some Silentx fans, a bit costy but very quite.

I you dont mind sound, go with some big CMF moving fans like these:

Alright, I know this sounds like I'm trying desperately to be lazy... And I am, though all of your suggestions are taken into account. I promise. Here's my next question: how unfeasible is it to remove the USB flanges and the top plastic thing, and put an Exos-2 there? Would it need some space between the case and the unit? Or... What do you think about the Exos-2 if I went external instead? Or are the combined radiator/pumps crappy?

It seems like it would be alot less work for me (A beginner) and with this case, would look amazing too (If it can sit right on top [screwed in probably), but if I'm overlooking something - because lord knows it SOUNDS too easy, lemme know!

Edit: Afterthought... Is TEC a better way to go?

haha dude your funny man!!!
Dont get and Exos please...they are not good at all and you will end up getting crap temps....
A beginner huh?? well so was i a few months back....there is a first time for everyting my friend....want something done right...do it yourself...plus it is limited as you cant mod it, and trust me when you get into this, you will want to mod your loop here and there to get it at its peak.....so forget the ready made stuff and start the list

Dude ill guide you through the whole thing, just dont be lazy LOL....

Naaa TEC is after you get some skills at watercooling...

Alright alright, you win. I'll get a few more caffeine drinks and suck up the immense amount of work ahead of me.

Ok, so, here's what I have so far, tell me if I have all of this correct;
  • Stinger Waterblock (Thinking V-8 probably)
  • D5 Pump
  • GTX480 Radiator
  • 4 Yate Loons
  • Possibly a waterbock for my GTS, but I'm not sure how long I'll have it, so maybe not...

I've heard of clamps, Y-connectors, etc being used. Will I need any if I'm only going to have my cpu in the loop? And what of a reservoir? Any random (Probably for me, a 5.25) DD reservoir, or is there better ones than others? (I know... A normal person doesn't have this many questions... But it's your lucky [couple] days ) And... Tubing. I don't know if I read it all right but they all look like 1/2 ID barbs (Unless I overlooked the spec on one of 'em), should I just get like... 10 ft of random tubing? More? Less? And... Is one material/manufacturers tubing better than another?

lol. Just give me stuff to buy...
