This. A budget loop for 1 gpu and 1 CPU will be ~400$. I spent more like 1K for SLI and bling.'

I would say invest in more recent hardware and then save for a XSPC Rasa kit, then add a GPU block for whatever card you decide on.

Well I do want to go through with this Watercooling project. I have already considered the idea of getting a new GPU But well I did spend $500 on this card. I does 3 Displays and I honestly dont care for DX11 yet (YET) so I do appreciate that imput.

As for the AquaGrafX ill look into that thanks

If you don't want to cool the cpu, you could go with something like the Rasa RX240 kit and get the water block for the GPU.

if you want to cool both the cpu and gpu's you could go with the RX360 kit and get the block for your card. that would cool it and it would be much quieter.

Danger Den and Heatkillers are great blocks.

If you look for deals and used parts you can have a gpu loop for easy under $200

Get the RX360 Rasa kit for a CPU loop, and that way you can upgrade your video card later if you want or throw it into the loop.

If you're happy with your current card, water cool now and then upgrade to Kepler later

Get this kit.

and this block
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=25298

pretty simple to me. also you will need something for biocide. I just use a silver kill coil.
I would also recommend getting new tubing, because the tubing with the kit isn't the greatest, it works, but just clouds up really fast.
I am pretty sure that block doesn't come with fittings, so just get some 1/2in fittings for it.

fittings

and kill coil
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=28871

just use distilled water in the loop. Nothing else.
