Can anyone suggest a complete WC setup for sig rig

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I'm looking into watercooling my sig rig. I have never even gone remotely close to any type of watercooling, not even with a H50 or H70. I don't really know what parts I need or what brands are good for a complete set-up. Basically, I want a cpu waterblock, and enough power (flow?) to cool two GPU's. I'll be upgrading to a 580 soon, so the requirement drops to only one GPU, but the ability to cool two would be very nice. It is preferable that the components are upgradeable later on instead a proprietary kit.

Budget... lets say $500 CAD max for now. I might change my mind depending on how I feel later on...
Tanks for any help
