planning out my first wc rig

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm building a new computer and I thought I would give water cooling a try.
I've read a lot of topics and I feel like I got a good grasp of it already but I have a few questions.

I was thinking of doing SLi but most GPUs dont come with the block already attached, the ones that do (EVGA copper hydro) are too expensive and rare to find. What's a good line of GPU that come with good waterblocks for me to assemble myself? around GTX560.

secondly, I assume that I'm gonna be needing 2 large radiators to support SLi and an i7-960 CPU. I dont want the radiator to be hanging out of the case so is there a case big enough to hold 2 radiators? maybe the HAF?

thanks

Everbody is gonna recommend 800D ,HAFX and TJ07 again "moan...boring".

Depends on your max budget.
On your water cooling and hardware enthusiasm.
Your requirements.
And what you intend to do with it.

I really like my cosmos s case
the speedo case isnt to bad
the 800d has lots of room but so does my cosmos s

if you really want to wc your gpu's you'll have to buy the blocks for the cards and install them yourself

about 89.00-135.00 each depending on the card and the brand of block you get
i've noticed heatkiller gpu blocks have come down and they do a great job

EK, well its ek what can you say, GREAT
anyway a 240 and a 360 rad
or 1 large 480 rad would do it
my 2 480gtx cards with ek blocks my motherboard and my cpu (980x) are all on 1 480 and my temps never leave the 50's
