I buy these parts and i can start (and the other post..)?

with this changes:
Bitspower Ultimate G 1 / 4 Thread 1 / 2 "ID x 3 / 4" OD Compression Fitting - Matte Black (BP-MBCPF-CC5)

Bitspower G1 / 4 "Matte Black Dual 45-Degree Rotary Compression Fitting CC5 For ID 1 / 2" OD 3 / 4 "Tube (BP-MB45R2CPF-CC5)

Bitspower G1 / 4 Thread 90-Degree Rotary 1 / 2 "ID x 3 / 4" OD Compression Fitting - Matte Black (BP-MB90R2LCPF-CC5)

Tygon 2375 Ultra Chemical Resistant Tubing - 1 / 2 "ID (3 / 4" OD) - Clear (AJK00038)

I would avoid using compression fittings that have any kind of bend to them. Especially 90 degree bends. While it may be minimal, it does restrict water flow. Let your tubing do the bending...gradually

For those of you using two GTX580 in SLI, there are six (6) physical board expansion slots in the motherboard layout, of those are you using slot #1 and slot #4 which limits it to 8x? Has anyone tried using a different configuration like slot #1 and slot #5. I note that they say performance is better using slot 1 & 4 for dual SLI. But, for triple they use physical slots 1-3-5. I refer to the physical 6 slots, not the other way they refer to these as PCIE 1-4.

Also, I note that some people are using two bridge cables for a dual SLI setup, does it make a difference whether you use a second bridge cable or not for dual SLI?

Hello, I just purchased an OCZ 120GB vertex3 SSD which I intend to use for my W7 OS installation and my 1TB WD HDD for data and games.
What sata port should I plug the SSD into?

Also I used to own an EVGA X58 classified and had to buy a chipset waterblock due to the NB hitting temps up to 80C on air, does the maximusIV chipset hit similar high temps?
Thanks.

P67 Controller slots, AHCI mode. Connect to these;

Its really up to you if you want to go with a Motherboard block on the Maximus IV Extreme. Here is a link to a nice rundown on the capabilities of the factory cooling solution;
http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/....php?p=4763078

It also includes a nice comparison against the Gigabyte UD7.

I HIGHLY feel that the link I posted should be included within the anchor post at the beginning of the thread. Best review I have found for the board.


TLDR;

The MIVE stock sink holds its own under OCing.
