Wait really? If so any fan recommendations? Also what're your opinions on chipset blocks? After reading captain zman's post I'm a bit skeptical.

It's a kit you don't need thats adding cost to the pump. Also, buy from performance-pcs. The MCP 655 pump is only $76 there:

A lot of the other products in your cart are cheaper too. I would switch the GPU block to this:

GTX rads need high speed and especially high static pressure fans, like San Ace, Delta, Panaflo.
In my opinion, WC-ing the chipsets... not worth it

Chipset cooling is useless as it doesn't affect your overclocks. As for fans the GTX radiator likes loud, high speed fans so if you are looking for a quiet setup I would switch your radiator to the XSPC RX360. The XSPC Radiator is much better suited for lower speed fans like the noctuas you already have.

Well the GTX vs XSPC. Is there going to be any noticeable differences in the oc's i can attain or is it negligible. As soon as this is answered I will show you guys my revisions.

With a single GPU and CPU the temperature difference between an XSPC Radiator + Quieter Noctua fans and a GTX with louder Ultra Kaze or San aces is going to be around 4-5C. This small temperature gap will probably not affect your overclocks by more than a few MHz, and your ears will certainly thank you.

Okay that sounds great! I'm going to piece together another cart from a few (cheaper) sites. Also I've read up on T-lines, they sound like they'd make life easier, but is it necessary and do most of you add one? In the mean time, If I planned to add another 480 card and cool the NB/SB for the hell of it, how hard would it be to integrate this into my loop. Would it make sense to spend a little more inorder to future proof this for these upgrades?

I say change the res to something less flashy and cheaper frozenq is for looks, pump a ek 4.0 will do fine as well and rad hows bout swiftech? they work great for mid rpm fans and honestly u aint gonna notice a few c difference in rl

MB block is one of those flashy items that isnt really gonna improve ur overclocking or stability, hows bout removing it for now and go for it later when u got the cash to burn for looks?

Here is a basic build. If you want to add in the mobo block then go for it. The MCP355 with after market top is actually better for restrictive loops such as yours with multiple blocks since it has more head pressure.

Okay so far I've been shopping around and have found much better deals and changed a few parts due to your recommendations. @ VW TDI 02 if I'm going to be adding another 480 and a chipset block would the MCP355 still be advisable? Right now I'm looking at around $560 (with the reservoir which is $130), and I do have to sell my Noctua NH-D14. Shouldn't I need 2 fittings per component? Or do I just need 8, Im not sure if VW TDI 02 made a mistake or if I am mistaken. Any other recommendations would be appreciated, thanks guys!
