I'm just not sure wether I should play it safe and get a GTX 680 SC+ with ref PCB, or pay $20 more to get an extra VRM stage, 6+8 pin power connectors and possibly a better binned GPU.
Seeing as the 6xx series are not held back by the VRM section I would suggest getting the ref card.

Next up - new hardware! (been bitten by the OCN bug!)

No response! No worries, I just fixed it myself... Smh

OK so I popped the case and uploaded some pics of my antec kuhler 920 to post here. Please don't make fun of me because I just started into water cooling and have not grown to the stage where I am comfortable making my own customized loops, etc. I hope to one day reach that stage and with the help and guidance of the great people here at OCN I feel strongly that I will have great teachers and mentors! So without further ado...Kuhler 920 in box
view of kuhler 920 installed from exterior of case
kuhler 920 running great so far! radiator is mounted all jacked up on the rear of the case wall where 120mm exhaust fan was. Didn't quite fit in the space perfectly, if only there had been an extra 1/8th inch of room would have mounted perferctly
close up view of kuhler 920 water block, washed out from flash
systems lit up 2 cooler master 120 mm RED LED fans, one mounted in front of HDD cage and one mounted in the bottom. additional RED LED lighting provided by the NZXT 2 meter RED LED light strip.
system washed out from flash, computer is running at this time
what a rats nest of cabling, I wish there was better cable management in this case.if there were just a few slight changes to this case it would actually be a great case, but for $45.00 on amazon it's hard to complain too much

Ok, makes sense. I don't think there's any significant difference in the chip binning anyways. Thanks.

anyone else? I'm about to put my order through.

I'm not the one to tell you about if you nééd a second D5 (not enough experience) but if you do get a second D5 put them in series. A separate CPU/GPU loop won't gain you anything at all and having the D5's in series gives you some redundancy in case one pump fails => in my point of view a major vote for D5's in series.
If you can afford it I'd advise you to go for the swiftech PWM version of the D5. Especially since you're all after silence this will keep the sound level of the pumps at a minimum at all times.
