Ok. You might as well get the full coverage block because it sounds like you have already made your mind up about it, and I am obviously blowing smoke.

good luck with your build.

Aww... buddy... I'm sorry, i didn't mean it like that! I haven't made my mind up on anything. I was just looking for more opinions. I think i'm gonna go with the swiftech 320 kit and get the swiftech gpu block you recommended. I see your point with keeping the block and changing the ramsink.

Bottom line is... I'm forking over some dough.

Well the way I see it is it better to spend a little extra at first to avoid spending a lot later.

One thing I have learned about water cooling is once u start its hard to stop.(;

Best to buy to allow for easier and less costly upgrading.

I've got the Water cooling bug already. I'm gonna buy all the parts you suggested, today, but i am concerned about the rad size. I would like a 320, but again, extra moola. I'm also looking for a chipset block for an Evga sli3.

I understand about the money issue, but what about when u install the 220 rad.& start OK'ing and the temps aren't where u want them?

It might just be cheaper to get the 320 now. Maybe someone else can chime in here.

If you are considering dropping $100 on the MCW80+RAM block...might as well go for a real full cover block. They offer less resistance and will cool better.

If you are thinking the Rasa + GPU, maybe you should consider a real loop. The Rasa is great for a CPU/starter kit, but you'll quickly need more pump and rads once you start adding more blocks.

My $.02 and I've watercooled for 8+ years. I love and recommend the Rasa all day, but if you are already thinking bigger...go bigger first.

Methos123 turned me on to the swiftech kit from crazy pc. I'm def liking that better than the Rasa kit. I'm leaning towards the swiftech block+ramsink for the gpu, but still haven't found a chipset block. I do understand that the 220 rad will not be enough for all three, so i'm looking at 320 rads, and prolly sell off the 220.

I'm waiting on Crazypc.com to get the stock back in. They had zero triple rads in stock. Real nice people over there. Order should ship Monday.
