Since i just bought two gtx 580's, and i plan to have these for a good while, unless the next gen is a huge jump forward, what waterblocks should i get for two 580's?

As for the fittings, i still haven't planned my loop...
Since you plan to have the 580s for quite a while, get a fullcover block. I highly recommend EK's GTX 580 waterblocks

Oh well, I went ahead and ordered the remaining parts. I'm gonna be busy next weekend!

As for the reservoir, should I get one that attaches to my pump? Like this one:

Also, will that res, or any others that say "for One Laing DDC Water Pump", work with my MCP655?

I'm gonna skip the GPU blocks for now, was hoping for around $50-$60 .

Here's my plan, seems like it's missing something. The block on the right is the res+pump.




EDIT:

I'm thinking this for the res. I take it Laing D5=MCP655?

Ok, I'm about to start putting my loop together, as well as adding some components, cables, sound dampening, etc. Any last suggestions? A specific guide to follow?

if you are using compression fittings, don't over tighten, or you'll cut the tube!

Success! Started off a PITA, but it was worth the effort to get it working the first time!

The MCP655 is way more quiet than I was expecting. And my system is overall more quiet AND cooler .

Temps right now are great! Even if the ambient is now at ~19C, it's still a big drop.

CPU: 3423MHz @ 1.258

AMBIENT: ~19
IDLE: 28-32
SMP: 47-51
P95: 50-55

As for the 2 CPU power cables reaching across the case, I meant two buy white extenders for those, but I got the wrong ones .
