If you want the lowest amount possible, I would just start with a good CPU loop and add the GPUs on later rather than a halfway decent CPU+GPU loop at the start.


CPU Block

Pump

Radiator

T-Line + Plug

PT Nuke

Tubing

are you referring to the full cover ones? those are expensive and use once only. i always get a dedicated gpu block if i can.

I did not know that. Thank you for that info on one use only. That dose not sound like a winner. And I also think u are right about getting 1 good piece at a time, makes perfect seance. After looking over all the links i have received in this thread, I still have some "grey" area on what is the best of the best. Should i simply plan to get almost everything on the "high coast" list in this link? http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...-purchase.html

Full cover blocks are designed for models of specific video cards whereas a dedicated GPU block can be used for multiple cards.

There is another question i have on this subject, what is the demand to have to have more than 1 pump and radiator and resivor? If i only cool the cpu and 2x gpu on 1 water sys. would the chipst and ram (ob/gpu) get hot under "good" Oc conditions? or is it ok to load as much as i want on 1 pump and rad/resv? Keeping in mind i will have this in my antec 1200 case so air will be cool.

You guys think this would be the best deal to get?

seems like a straight shot to me. maybe get some heat sinks for everything else to be air cooled?

RAM and the NB don't normally get hot because of other parts being OCed. Also, they don't really need to be water cooled.

If you get a good radiator and good fans to go along with it, then you would probably need only 1 radiator/pump. I'm pretty sure you never need more than 1 res.

PTS sells good water cooling kits. That kit looks great, just get some RAMsinks and you're good to go.

There isn't real reason to add another pump into your loop except for redundancy. if you meant, another loop.. then i would say that would be for to keep your cpu as cool as possible and that you have the room and money to do so. i have 2x gpus and 1x cpu under a 360 rad, and it cools considerably well. you can't load "as much as you want" on one pump and res, and the pump will eventually became too strained and thats when you'll want a second loop. you want to try to keep it around 1.5GPM.


Here is a list for you to use as reference:

CPU: Apogee GTZ or D-tek fuzion v2 both are $61.95
Rad: GTX360 $99.95 or PA120.3 $119.95
Pump+Res option 1: MCP-655 $74.95 + Microres v2 $24.50
Pump+Res option 2: MCP-355 $63.95 + XSPC Res-Top $44.95
Tubing: 7/16"ID Durelene $0.45/ft
Fans: GTX360: 114CFM Scythe $8.95/each or PA120.3: 88CFM Yate Loons $3.70/each
Barbs: DD/BP Fatboys $2.50/each
Coolant: Distilled water from local supermarket. (Price will vary on your store)
Misc: PT-Nuke $2.50

Now for totals... all totals have 20ft of tubing, 8 barbs, and 3x fans.
Option 1 - GTX360+pumpres1+Scythes= $317.20
Option 2 - GTX360+pumpres2+Scythes= $326.65
Option 3 - PA120.3+pumpres1+Y-L= $321
Option 4 - PA120.3+pumpres2+Y-L= $330.45

Cheapest option::
CPU: Enzotech Sapphire - $54.99
Pump: MCP-655 - $74.95
Rad: Swifty 320 - 48.95
T-block: Enzotech brass T -$8.99
Tubing: 20ft durelene - $9
Barbs: 9x Fatboys - $22.5
Fans: 3x Yate Loons - $11.10

Total: $230.48

If you are lacking in space, Options 2 and 4 would be best. If you want silence w/o a fan controller, Option 3 and 4 are for you (1 and 2 if you have fan controller). If you have extra space and want a separate res then Options 1 and 3.

*NOTE 1: If you are on a really tight budget and this is still too high, switch the rad to...
Swiftech 320 rad $48.95.
For fans, I would use the Yate Loons mentioned before. (This rad is a single pass and not dual like the other two.)

*NOTE 2: If you are on a really tight budget, cut out the reservoirs and use a T-line. You'll have to buy a T-fitting in its place though. I would recommend the...
Enzotech Brass T $8.99
Do realize that you would need to add 3 more fittings too.

*NOTE 3: I personally like the Enzotech Sapphire. You may substitute other said blocks with it too.

*NOTE 4: You may or may not want to add GPUs to your loop down the road so here are some GPU only block recommendations(If you want fullcover blocks, they are much more expensive and much more specialized.):
D-Tek Fuzion GFX v2 $46.95
Swiftech MCW-60 Rev.2 $39.95

I hope this helps.
