second guy used a somewhat similar build, before saying screw it and going with a GTX570/SG07 box.

EDIT: and the caviar black 2TB is noisey.

Interesting, I didn't really think about putting the GPU under water, just getting the twinfrozrII and using good case fans. I doubt I will get this setup, I just want to throw the idea around incase I run into the cash.

I'd opt for a small SSD for boot/apps and a larger regular drive for large data, will save a bit of cash too.

Otherwise looks good!

Doh, load temps into the 80s on cpu and gpu. That's not good. Running that much off a single 120 is asking for it.

The other said he got load temps of 40c, wat? My gpu only loop with a rx120+fc6950 loads in the low 50s. Load temps of 40c with cpu and gpu, with a 570 no less?? That's hard to believe.

Use the Gigabyte ITX board instead of the Intel.

If only water cooling the CPU, may as well get an all-in-one kit like the Corsair H50 or the CoolIt Eco/Vantage. You will have limited space above the PSU for the rad so you may have to use a thinner 120mm fan than the usual 25mm. The CoolIt rad is very thin, which helps fitment. Either of these will fit better due to thinner tubing

If the 2TB Black will be used for both games and storage, I'd suggest a 1TB Samsung F3 for games and a 2TB Samsung F4 or 2TB WD Green for storage. Same cost, end up with 1TB more space and will be quieter. The Lian Li PC-Q08 case has plenty of drive bays.

The PSU is a bit overkill, plus might be a bit big. What I would do is to score something like an Antec Neo Eco 520W. The reason is that it is really short for an ATX PSU. Now, it isn't modular, but it is cheap so you should make your own cable harness. Might be as easy as cutting off the cables you don't need.

H20 redux is actually mine. Load temps were because I had a 9V'd pump and one fan on an average Rad. Other Guy had the best 120 Rad money could buy + twin gtap14 fans.
