I dont know what Nuke is, can you explain (I hope it doesnt mean nuclear bomb :O)
And I can use Black Ice Extreme for the Radiator
Yea you will have to decide if you wanna watercool the GPU's or not three is a heavy heat load gonna need a good bit of rad to cool that. I would put a 480 rad in a obsidian 800d and start with that. Need some good fans on that.

PT nuke is just a biocide, it's basically comes like eyedrops you just put a few in your loop so stuff doesn't grow in it.

Okay, but do I need the 480 rad and obsidian thing if I am watercooling. Or do I just need a loop (tubing, biocide, and a radiator and reservior)

I have found these

I can get three of these http://www.scan.co.uk/products/1536m...0mhz-512-cores

Can I use these with the Asus Rampage III Extreme in the DF-85 Case?

And can you guys link me products that I'd need to get both Water cooling loops running

corsair obsidian is a case that fits a 480, it's made for watercooling I'm not sure what the dark fleet holds but i can't imagine it's more than a 360. Hell if you wanted a really nice huge case maybe even a silverstone tj07.

If you are going watercooling you need a lot of space, haf x only holds a 360 even with a black ice rad that's pushing it.

radiators come in 120 increments(well most some come in other sizes). So 120,240,360,480. So basically a 480 black ice extreme make sure not to get the stealth one thats for slow fans.

You also need gpu blocks, i don't have a recommendation for this you will have to look around.

Oh and fittings, barbs or compressions. Like i said go stalk the watercooling thread for a few days will need to do a good bit of research.

If you are planning on cooling your cpu and 3 GTX580s you will need at least a good 480mm rad because you are going to be putting out a ton of heat that needs dissipating.

For a loop you need enough tubing, a reservoir for each loop, a good pump for each loop, waterblocks for each part being cooled, fittings for all parts.

All of these parts will take up a large enough amount of space, thus a large case is needed, which what the Corsair Obsidian 800D is. The Obsidian is not required to watercool, but a case large enough to fit all of your parts is highly recommended.

To be honest, if you have never watercooled before I do not recommend building this intricate of a loop your first time, there are simply too many things that can go wrong if you mess up a single thing. I would start smaller, say only cooling the cpu and go from there.

This is only partly true. The stock Obsidian can fit a 360mm rad up top, with modification it can fit a 480mm rad.

But with three GTX 580s I dont think Air cooling is going to cut it, and what about the CPU will air cooling work for that as well?

If I went down to 2 GTX 580s and used the Corsair H70 for the CPU. The Rampage III Extreme would allow both GTX 580s to run at 16x (since it has 32 channels)

And I can get my soundcard, also with a good enough case not sure which yet) I'm sure air cooling would suffice for the GTXes

if you want to utilize your sound card and run 3x580's, I would recommend the EVGA classified, as that is one of the reasons why I personally didn't go quad SLi

w/ the Palit 3gb 580's, EK waterblocks will be available in about 7-10 business days (info comes from "vega's build" in the watercooling section.

I change our parts too often to ever go watercooling again...so I'm quite satisfied w/ air cooling =D

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-059-_-Product this the mobo you want if you are still interested in quad sli. Great board but it's big, need at least 9 expansion slots to fit it and 10 to run quad sli. I would suggest a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...0li%20pc%20p80 to fit the board and 4 cards.

It all depends on your air flow setup, which is one of the good things about the Antec DF cases, their airflow is extremely customizable. As long as you have good flow across all of your components and a good heatsink on the cpu (say the silver arrow or whatnot) you shouldnt have any problem with temps as long as you arent doing a ton of really heavy overclocks.

In reality the only time you would need watercooling is if you have large overclocks on your components and air cooling cant keep up with the heat being put out. This is why I moved back to air cooling from water, because I didnt have a need for it anymore and it was more of a hassle to maintain and worry about than it was worth.

Yes, you would be more than fine with the H7O on the cpu and air on the 580's.

There are a ton of cases on the market that will fit your needs perfectly. With only 2 gpus the case selection process is more down to personal preference now than it has been in the past simply because there are a lot of cases with good airflow.
