Water-cooling Custom Loop (HELP)!

Hello, So I'm planning on build a gaming/editing pc for around $3000 and I want to over-clock my CPU and get the max cooling for my pc , so I've decided instead of getting a corsair 100i to make my own loop, as I want it to go with my colour theme of red and black. And if it's better I can downgrade the ram to 16gb and ssd to 128gb to save some extra money for the wate cooling, so I have a extra $300.

So can you please help me find the best parts for my custom loop to fit $3000 please. (I want red tubing please) And I want my gpu cooled as we'll, as when I get sli it will get really hot.

Here is my build http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/31TSI

    You will find that the water-coolers here wont just giive you a parts list like we would a system build. Custom water is risky, you need to know what your doing and why the parts were picked.
    My advice, read the water-cooling sticky, create a loop you think will work and post it here for feedback.

    With ~$200 to play with, you wont be able to get the loop you want, but its enough to make a start on a decent CPU only loop.

    Also, you can save a lot of cash on that rig without compromising on performance. Get a 750W PSU, 1000W is overkill and you dont need a Gold rating. The motherboard can be a lot cheaper and still give the same functionality and the 780Ti can be turned into a plain 780 without losing much in the way of performance.

    Thanks for the reply and it really help :) The reason I got the 1000w power supply is because I was going to get sli 780ti's later on, but I think now I would still be able to run games on ultra 60+ fps with one 780ti on a 1080p monitor for years. And I'm not sure yet if I should just get a corsair 100i or a custom loop as I'm not sure about the whole over-clocking thing yet, like if it was to break my device... I just want a cool running machine and Mabey in the future over clocking it (Probably happen in first week) . Thanks for the help again :)
