Ok so i came across some extra $$ so im making a few changes to the rig in the sig below and i just wanted to make sure i wasnt forgetting anything.

1. Corsair 800 Currently --> Mountain Mods U2-UFO
2. 1 Stealth Black Ice GT 360 --> Adding a Black ICE GTX 360 (will run both)
3. Asus p6t --> Asus Rampage III Extreme, this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-642-_-Product

this is the correct block for the board right? http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11..._Hot_Item.html

4. this res http://www.frozencpu.com/products/64...r_-_Black.html If i wanted to, would there be any harm in running 2 reservoirs? (i would replace the blue led with a red one)

5. Adding a 3rd powercolor 6970 LCS (6970 with an ek waterblock)

6. is my pump which is the MCP35X enough to run through all of this (2 res, 3 360 rads, 3 gpus, 1 cpu, 1 mobo)

7. Are those 2 radiators (i already have the stealth one so i might as well use, and buying the bigger one) enough for all of that hardware with some room to spare?

I have extra fittings and tubing and enough distilled water/pt nuke already

and the other changes, but are not directly related to water

8. will swap the Corsair AX850 for the AX1200

9. replace my X25-E's with 2 128GB C300s (newegg has a good deal at $200 each for them right now)

edit: woot 500th post

3. Yes it is

4. No harm, (except more restriction, more strain on pump) but no benefit either

6. Probably, but two loops would perform better. Two pumps,two res,etc.

7. Depends on what temps you are hoping for

4. I might not do it, but i like my t-virus res, but i dont think ill have the room to mount it vertically and if it is mounted horizontall it will be a PITA to fill or drain, so i would get a res that would go in my 5 1/4 bay that would be for filling and draining

6. is it really needed though?

7. Are you saying my temps will be bad with 2 360's? I run the stealth 360 on my 2 6970's and my i7 currently, i though the GTX 360 was much better and should more than cancel out the addition of the third card and mobo block?

Since you are thinking of a Mountain Mods case, why not check out the Case Labs cases? I find them to have a much cleaner look and finished appearance. I originally was going to purchase a Mountain Mod case as well and ended up purchasing a Case Labs case.

You should check my Case Labs Club link for some build logs from other OCN'ers as well as the pictures and threads both in the Case Labs section of the forums as well as on their facebook page.

6. No

7. Never said they would be bad, just that they won't be record breaking temps

Gl with the upgrades. Nice rig getting nicer...

they look nice, only thing they dont seem to have that i want is that with the u2-ufo im getting the motherboard tray will be horizontally mounted and each side panel will have half windows, so you can see the mobo but i can hide the hard drives and power supply underneath
