I have been putting together a build list for my 3rd PC build. I wanna know if putting in water cooling would be worth it. I wanna cool the CPU(obviously :) ) and the GPUs(2 770's most likely) and HDD and ram later on if I have cash to do it. In a case labs S5 or M10. So plenty of room!

Your opinions are welcome and if you have links that were recommended or you have personally used would be very helpful.

Thanks for your time.

Regards, Mason.

Instead of water-cooling just grab a Hyper 212 EVO to get a good feal for what you can do.

Very good air cooler for its price.

Sure, the water cooling components are always transferable to a new build with the exception of the CPU water block (most likely).

My daddy always told me 'Son, if you are going to do something, do it right'. 2011 builds just beg to be OC, and not by just a little. Do it right? WC for sure, and with 2x770's.. oh yeah! its worth it. A little clear tubing, some tasteful UV and leds and a big a** window on the side of the case... light up the room!

Might as well wait till you have at least $600 ish for a custom water cooling loop for both the CPU and GPU. Might as well do RAM as well. Although that's not really needed.

I need to agree with ya on that one, I'm most likely going with watercooling, do you have any sites that you use regular? I know swift tech and such but not too many others.
