Hey guys,
I have recently finished building my PC.
Spec list: http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/1YzJY

However due to having the infamous r9 290x and its cooling issues I would like to invest in a good water cooling loop/system.

I would like to cool my GPU, CPU, motherboard and possibly some other things.

I have completely no idea on what to get so i would like all the parts to be listed.

I have a corsair carbide air 540 so i can fit a 360 rad and a 240 rad. I am thinking of getting compression fittings.

First of all, you will want to read this. This will give you an understanding of the theory behind water-cooling.

You will find the water-coolers here wont just give you parts list for a loop like we would a system build. As you can understand, we want you to know what your doing and getting yourself into, not just follow what we say.

From there, ask any questions you still have and pull together a loop you think will work and post it here for feedback.

Use AMD CPU and NVIDIA Cards, they are much easier to cool and parts for them are much cheaper. The Design of the GTX 780 is much easier to cool rather than the 290x.

Right...
I would think water-cooling a 290X would have more benefit than water-cooling a 780.

You did mention it so no sweat. Manofchalk is spot on that watercooling the faster card that hits 95C will be more beneficial.
