I need a case that is big enough that I can water cool the entire system. nothing to expensive though. I would like the case to easy on the eyes. i have looked at the koolance cases but ouch on the pricetag and im not sure how good their water cooling is anyways. I also need advise on water cooling. Would it be better to just buy a kit or piece one together? any suggestions?

Thanks

what about these?

" target="_new"> Danger Den RBX - Athlon64/FX/Opteron 1/2" ID Water Block
</A>considering the radiator only has 1 in and 1 out on it I would go from the radiator to the cpu then to 1 of the video card inlets and then back to the Reservoir.

the Reservoir has 4 In - 2 Out. next the other out on the cpu could go to the other video card block and then back to the Reservoir.

i decided to go with this case<A HREF="http://www.frozencpu.com/cst-20.html?mv_pc=926" target="_new"> Aluminum Black Chenming 601 w/ Full Size Window </A>
also im using the pump you advised me to use

what about Tubing & Fittings? Should i cool my hard drive. its a 300 gig seagate. i may decide to go to 2 drives and run them in a raid configuration so i guess i would need two HDD coolers.

i would like everyones thoughts and comments please



Thanks

i can only find the BlackICE ProII with 2 120mm fans. crap i may just go with the case you suggested. im really confused now. if im only cooling the cpu with water then i need a case with lots of fans for the HD and 2 video cards correct

Thanks

The amount of heat SLI give out is a pain and it can't be mixed with the CPU waterblock.



Ah yes, you need to buy the two SLI cards with two slot design(6800Ultra&6800GT have them) so that hot air is directly exausted through the case

not sure i follow you here. what do you mean by buying the two sli cards with two slot design(6800Ultra&6800GT have them) so that hot air is directly exausted through the case. you got a link that shows me what your talking about.

i am fixing to order

what else do i need as far as the little things?
the water block is finally in stock. i just wish the 120mm Radiator and the Reservoir were back in stock so i could order all at the same time.

Thanks
