You will definitely need a bigger radiator to cool all that or maybe make 2 loops. Maybe have the CPU and NB on one loop with a good dual 120 rad and the 2 VGAs on another dual 120 rad. I'm not exactly sure if a 480GTX could even cool all that well enough.

CPU and NB are good, although the D-tek fuzion may do a little better.

I wouldn't get that for the water blocks though, aluminum block, you want all copper/brass/derlin...don't mix or you could have corrosion problems.

For the GPU I would get the MCW60

and the d-tek aluminum block

This would be cheaper and better performance.

Then yeah, that pump is iffy, for all those blocks you need at a minimum one really good pump with alot of head:

Or run two loops, one CPU NB and one GPU only
http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/swmc12vdcpuw.html

I'm running one loop now with CPU + one 8800 on two triple 120mm rads, but that's overkill. You could run one CPU plus 8800 on a double 120mm rad, but a triple would be better. Remember a CPU might be 100 watts of heat, but each one of those 8800s is 146 watts. My temperature rises more from benching my 8800 than my E6600 even at 1.50v..lots of heat there.

For a CPU + 2 8800s + NB you're talking like 100 +146 +146 +40 or 440 watts of heat.

If you only wanted one loop I wouldn't run anything less than one of these Thermochill PA120.3 and at least some goo 70cfm fans:

Oh and you don't need a reservoir, I prefer a T-line myself. The only difference is a reservoir bleeds the air bubbles faster, but I can still bleed out mine in about a day, 30minutes to get the big bubbles out and a day or so to get all the tiny ones.
