Yeah when i start getting things. ;] I just ordered a 5770. So it might be a bit till i get started on purchasing the parts for the first loop. Also the dual 5770 xfirewater blocks might change if ati comes out with a new fairly priced and powerful card for the 6000 series. It'd be cheaper just to buy 1 block


BTW im only 13 so if my build doesnt look beautiful im sorry:< Im doing my best XD

If you can afford it a set of Koolance quick disconnects might be helpful if you plan on upgrading your loop throughout the year. This way you won't have to remove various blocks that are a pain when you want to take stuff out.

quick disco, try koolance VL3N, skinnee did a review and had almost non-existing dripping and was comparable in flow to other quick disco fittings he reviewed. I have the VL4N, I didnt get to the skinnee review until i had gotten it. I just use it as a drain line for my res. Its a novel idea to add them through out the loop, but I find them a bit too heavy and may hinder smooth bends you are trying to achieve. And most are design like compression or barbs. I would have done some if they had g1/4 threads to add some to my rads. Im on my work pc right now, sub'd, get some pics soon.

VERY nice for only being 13 and planning on H2O.
Gah, I remember those days....building a 33Mhz Pentium with 8MB of memory on a 1.5(?)GB hard drive and windows 95 was brand spanking new. Those were the days....

IMO, I like the MCP355. Not as great flow compared to the MCP655 but the head pressure is much higher. So if you're loop consists of many restrictive components (chipset, GPU, CPU, etc.), it would be best to get that pump since it can go through all of that.

You could go with the single RX360 and it would be able to cool all of the stuff you listed.

The extra 120mm radiator really isn't needed since the GPUs you will be using don't give off that much heat.
