I would suggest a couple of Black ice SR1 420's
and for blocks CPU EK Supreme HF GPU EK FC480 GTX
For a pump go with a mcp655 if you are going single loop
or a pair of mcp355 if you want separate CPU and GPU loops
for a res. check out this for single loop option
for a res. check out this dual loop option
Thanks, I will probably go with one of those black ice for the GTX 480s, do you have any fan/controller preferences for that rad?

Those rad.s are optimized for low speed (less than 1800 rpm) 140mm fans

If you plan on OCing that 980 at all then the Swiftech will be woefully inadequate

I lke the Scythe Kaze master fan controlers

I would go with the 1850 rpm Gentle Typhoons or some other good mid to low speed fans.

Im a little surprised that you think the Swiftech will be woefully inadequate. It comes with the exact pump you reccomend, a dual 140 mm radiator, and an apogee xt cpu block, that i have seen come in the top three for cooling in several cpu block round ups. Is a triple radiator really needed just for the CPU?

Swiftech has changed the kit recently I see
that kit will cool your CPU but you plan to run 3 GTX 480's those things make a lot of heat.

I have 1 Black ice extreme III and 1 Black ice stealth GT 120
My CPU currant folds @ 4.2ghz. with a vcore of 1.325, temps stay right at 67c. with an ambient temp of 31c.
I think I need more radiator

With all these massive hardware that he is going to get, he would need multiple rads to cool everything. With this said, would an 800D house more than 1 rad?
I do not own one and have not done any research about the case hence my question.

Maybe he should consider a different case??
I have no hate on the 800D at all. I am just trying to point it out in case it needs to be looked at.

That sound like a really nice system your building there, I would love to build something like that. I'm posting here mainly to recommend the logitech g35 headphones. When I first got them was midway through playing BC2, and they made it such a different experience that I started the campaign again, just because it was that much of a difference. And you can also plug them via USB so you can switch easily.

I'll be watching this thread because I'm really looking forward to seeing this beast put together

If you look at my original post, i wrote that the Swiftech is just for the CPU, and asked for advice on watercooling for the GPUs. The Swiftech, will be mounted on the rear of the case with the rad box, and I will use a triple radiator on top most likely

Have you considered a diff. case?

I was just wondering since I used to have a rad mounted at the back of my case and it looked really ugly IMHO.
