Ok, I've composed a final draft of the watercooling parts that I will order very soon:

Swiftech APOGEE w/ Blue acrylic top ~$55

DD Black Ice Extreme III Radiator ~$78

12V DD-D5 Pump ~$75
http://www.dangerdenstore.com/produc...5&cat=4&page=1

DD NV-78 GPU Block ~$125
http://www.dangerdenstore.com/produc...&cat=48&page=1

Typhoon Quad 5.25'' Bay UV Blue Resevior ~$30

Aerocool AeroPower II+ 550W PSU ~$110

I got the "high quality" tubing from danger den too. Everything is 1/2'' OD and the tubing is 1/2'' ID. Gotta find some good coolant, and I'll be done.

Any thoughts? Last minute changes?

Hmm... haven't thought about it. I was gonna just attach the radiator to the otherside of my 3 virtical case fans (Aerocool Turbines, see profile for rig showcase).

Thanks. I've had my heart set on the radiator listed, and it'll take a whole lot to get me to reconsider.

I can't hear the fans and I'm sitting a foot away from them. They look nice too.

If I was already spending $78 on a rad (I never would...I love my heatercore) I would drop the extra on the Thermochill PA...it doesn't need a shroud. Also plan on getting better fans and actually attaching the directaly to the rad, those 34CFM or whatever are weak. Look into some better ones and get a fan controller if sound is an issue.

I had a NV-68 and it had great flow. My only problem with that block is it didn't set right on my RAM in spots, it weighed too much, and it was freaking huge. If you are looking for the best of the best in WCing (with the amount of $ you are spending I'm guessing you are) buy the Silverprop HL and some nice RAMsinks. It will be cheaper then the NV-78 and you will get better temps with more flow.
