One thing about Koolance Xovit, if you decide to go that route, is make sure you twist the washers OFF the barbs before you mount them on the block, I locked up two of my nozzles because I forget this and tightened the barb onto the waterblock with the washer in tact, and there's really no way to get that dang washer off to tighten hose on the barb once you do that.

Over all, very pleased with my finished assembly -- I'll post pics here soon, I'm waiting for my Feser One coolant to come in on Monday before I run it in my system.

I used about four feet of tubing through four water blocks, and filled the rest of the fan spots in my case with the proper size fans for extra cooling.

I didn't waterblock the SB, instead used a micro fan/heatsink which fit nicely under my two 8800GTX cards. I'll post pictures up tomorrow of the finished product in this section in a separate thread. Over all, from unpacking ALL the parts of the system to finished (sans software/bios config), it took me about fifteen hours of work time to complete, maybe four of which were dedicated to the cooling system.

And puzzled, keep in mind that block covers ALL the RAM and other critical components on the card as well.
