Other than that, build looks awesome.
Oh yeah......no monitors. You're just going to look at your uber build and not use it.
Ok we have update No1

HDD switched with 2x Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB SATA3

(btw sata2 and sata3 1TB caviars had only 2 bucks difference )

and about watercooling.. hmm.. you see i dont actually live at the US right now i live in a place were WC is like saying 12 core CPU... That place is Greece btw and getting a WC kit here is hard.. Thats why i believe that i can handle for some years with air cooling while im in Greece and when i come back ill introduce Liquid Nitrogen to my little 6990 D

There are several XPSC resellers in EU. Not sure about Greece though.

anyone have their 6990/6970 water cooled? I was looking at getting this done.

I was looking at a koolance waterblock for the 6990, but it said NOTE: This product is for AMD reference layouts only. It will not fit video cards that have been changed from the reference spec...

Is my sapphire 6990 reference?

Also any advice on gpu WC would be cool thanks

EK are taking way too long, so I ordered the Koolance finally. Should be here next monday/tuesday. My 6970 is already watercooled (EK-6970).

All the 6990 on the market are all reference design. So don't worry. Any waterblock will do.

Koolance and Swiftech were getting better then EK lately, but EK just updated their fins design and should be back in the top 3 with new blocks.

But for a GPU, a waterblock or another is not making any major difference, except for the look/esthetic. I don't really care about that (sleeving, etc, not my cup of tea).

Post some pics of your ''naked'' 6990 and of your waterblock installation!

Have fun with draining!Had to exchange my Asus P67 Maximus Extreme last weeks (new B3 stepping), with 3 dedicated loops, 4 rads, 3 res,3 pumps, countless fittings... to clean them all with a toothbrush and ketchup. Fill/rinse/flush. Sigh. So much fun.

Why did you have to clean all the stuff with a toothbrush? You had gunk build up?

No. But once a year I do a ''deep clean'' and tear down everything, even the waterblocks, even if there is no gung or build-up. I also change tubing once a year, but I rinse/flush every 6 months.

I use 99.99% pure silver coil that I made myself from silver wire, with 2 drops of Lugol per liter of distilled water.

Never had any problems over the years.

This sounds too much for me. Might be where I draw the line and just wait for Arctic to make an Accelero for the 6990.
