I also had a few questions I hope some of you can answer:
1. Should I have the RAM/MB blocks in the loop with the CPU or the GPU?
2. I like the Aquastream Pumps because they allow software control as well as control of the fans. Do any of you have experience with the Aquastream pumps?
3. I was also considering getting the WD Caviar Black 4TB instead of the Seagate but it is much more expensive. Does anyone think it is worth the extra cost?
Considering that you are watercooling, the Formula will be a waste of money with the built in waterblocks, especially since you have such a large budget. Get an Extreme series.
