sandy bridge 2600k, best watercooler build help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I wanna do a build using the ASUS MAXIMUS IV EXTREME which I already have in my hands and also watercool everythin.

So far what I have in mind is:

http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...umber=13665891

I'm not sure if that's okay? I have mainly chosen those items because they are good and look good overall (esthetics matters to me).

As you may have noticed, money is not an issue, I just want to make a good build.

I wanna watercool everything, and I don't know where to buy the best water blocks, tubes, coolant, and all that stuff needed for the GTX 580's, CPU, Motherboard, etc.

What I have bought for my first build was the following:

Geez. Why not go full on WC? The 580s will be pretty beast. Is this just a gaming rig? Regardless it all looks good to me! Jealous you have no budget.

The 590 cards suck at the moment. So many problems.

580 SLI is beast. 3-way is a bit overkill. But if you have the money, go for it. Good to have overkill now than having to upgrade down the road. I'm pretty sure 3-way 580s will keep you occupied for quite some time.

I would have gotten a CM HAF 932 instead of the X, but that's just me.

Overall, very nice build. I are jealous.

I've edited my topic. I surely wanna watercool everything now, tho like I said, I have never done a watercooling system, so I need assist there.

It's not only for gaming.

I already bought the HAF X for my first build and I don't think I'm going to return it because it seems fine. Now I want another case for my second build, and as you may have noticed I've chosen the 800d as it seems very popular. As for the 3-way SLI, I already edited the wish list... there it is along with the power supply (i've choosen the Antec HCP 1200).

If you're going tri sli you may want to go with a 970/990x build in order to get faster pci-x slots and also more threads. Tri 580's require a lot of CPU.

What resolution are you running? Tri 580's are overkill unless you're running 2560x1600 or 2d/3d surround.

EK generally is often regarded as the best for waterblocks. XSPC is a very good cheaper alternative. If you get the Haf-X you should be able to fit an xspc rx360 rad up top. You'll need additional rads for a cpu + 3 580's. You could put a 120/140 in the bottom or in the rear vent. You could also remove the hard drive holders to mount a 240 in the front.
