For only the CPU I think the HAF would be a great choice. Enough room for everything (rad, video cards, etc) while not compromising on air flow, which your gpus will need.

In this case most people are going to tell you to get a Corsair H50 or H70 closed looped device. Some people don't consider this true watercooling. I prefer a more custom method where I get to choose my components and build it myself. But hey, whatever floats your boat.

Easy cheap method:
H50/H70

Hard method:
Radiator
Tubing
Pump
Waterblock
Fittings
Reservoir
Hose clamps/zipties etc...
Distilled Water
PT Nuke/Waterwetter
Anti-freeze
Fans (like Gentle Typhoons )
Leak test
Jumpering black & green line on PSU
Drilling some holes for radiator placement (might even ruin your case during the process)

But if you choose the easy cheap method, you basically don't have to ask anymore questions. Just put it on and hook it up and you're done.

if i put good fans on the h70, how good do you think it will perform?

and do i have to mount the fans the way corsair recommends? (backwards?!)

I would recommend a "real" watercooling set up, but If you were to get a H70, whatever "backwards" means, make then exhaust the warm air from the CPU out of the case, especially if you are going to do 4-way SLI/Crossfire

ok thanks.

and by backwards i mean that corsair recommends to make the fans bring air into the case from the back

This makes the CPU cooler by a few degrees, but it makes everything else in the computer warmer.

it also interrupts the airflow going up from the bottomn and out from the top
