Add some tubing as well as distilled water and you're good to go.

Agreed, with Bmaverick's pumps and the amount of hardware that goes through here (and sometimes ebay) you should be able to set something up for that price.

The XSPC rs or rx360 (go for the RX if you can) would easily handle a GPU + CPU block. Just make sure you pick up some Primoflex LTR unless you are rocking a Full tower.

Just gotta be quick, the good deals fly off the shelves.
I'm keeping an eye on the for sale section, you're right, the good deals do go quickly.

I usually dismiss the kits, and most have a gpu block which I don't need yet, but those two links from Frozen CPU actually feature some good parts, which would be fine for what I'm looking for now, all keeping near the initial $300 budget!

Choosing a good rad isn't always easy given a price limit, I like this bad boy:
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/53...61&id=XDeBycv7
but it's at least 50 bucks more than some other good rads.

Thanks for all the suggestions and advise.
If I do decide to purchase some starter system parts now with my $300 budget, I'm only going to get enough to cool one 480, but the rad will be a good 360 so it has sufficient capacity for the second card in the future. No gpu or chipset cooling, and only one 480 block for one of the 480's, for now.

Then I will add to it as my budget allows, probably saving up enough at a time to do the second 480, then the gpu which may get another rad and loop.

I'm going to go with fairly good quality here, it saves money and trouble in the long run not scrimping on quality, so the parts won't be cheap.

But it looks like it can be done

You can't. 1.2v is the max unless you want to do hard mods

EDIT: Wow, did I misread that. LOL If that isn't a typo then you'll need to start Googling voltmods. There were a few for the memory on G100's a while back, not too sure about the core yet.

Download Nibitor and GPUz. Using GPUz click the icon next to the BIOS information to dump your BIOS. SAVE A COPY OF YOUR ORIGINAL BIOS. SAVE A COPY OF YOUR ORIGINAL BIOS. If you have to RMA in the future, you will probably need to flash back.
Now, open your BIOS with Nibitor. At the top of Nibitor there is a "Tools" option. Select it then "Fermi Voltages" in the drop down. At the top of the window that pops up, you will see max voltage set that where ever you want it. Exit that and save your new BIOS as 1.ROM or something else short.
Now just follow this guide to flash with your new BIOS. You should be able to figure out which steps to follow, etc.

Good luck!

EDIT: Yup, 885 on air, 900 on water... kind of a lame improvement.
Must be gf100 architecture. I checked the back of the card, "Disable OCP" switch is ON, but still can't do 915 core regardless of volts.

Wants to be colder, I got my 480 lightning in winter, with cooler ambient it did 900 core on stock volts & 950 with ~1.15V with the stock cooler.
There's a long ways to go before OCP, I haven't hit OCP on a 480 or 580 yet at at any core speed regardless of voltage (I modded OCP before doing 1300 core on the dcuII, not sure if I would have hit it there or not. Only card I've disabled it on).

Figures As soon as core temp hits 60C during benchmarks/testing screen locks up.

What were your stock core volts btw? My lightning is set to 1.081V stock, but thats complete overkill.
