just ordered my new rig. i7 extreme and gtx 590 sli. should i go with liquid cooling?
i have ordered my new system parts. it's as the following:
intel i7 x990 extreme.
12gb 2000mhz corsair gt dominator.
2x gtx 590 for sli.
ocz ventryx 2 120gb SSD.
corsair H70 cooling cpu.

i will get x58 classified or 4-way x58 classified local since i didn't find them online and its cheaper here locally. now the question is what is the benifit of moving to GPU liquid cooling. how much difference would it make. i am not looking for benchmarking. i use my pc for hard gaming and multi monitor 3 x 24" 2d stereotypic. i know i will reach some score in 3d mark11 but thats not my target.

i didn't decide yet since i didn't pick up a case yet also. i may get a dangerden mooded case from friend ( buying it) but i didn't see it yet. i may look around for cooler master haf X if the the dangerden wouldm't fit me ( its design for liquid cooling by the way ).

i will definitely over clock a bit my CPU but not really high for future long live.
i would appreciate anybody with a very good experiment to explain in a bit of details with links. i looked around on some famous website and youtube rigs. but i still don't get it.

thanks

I have a very in-depth sticky that I finished up the other day. It is at the top of the forum or: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/265776-29-watercooling-info-faqs-links-stickies

Also, my signature below has all the same links provided...the sticky has more explanation and walk-through in design, concept and planning. It sounds like it would be a good place for you to go from here.

Let me know once you go through that...it might take some time, but you should have some of your questions answered or know how you want to proceed.

Good luck.

Edit: Saw you ordered an H70 CPU cooler...? Why did you go this route when you are considering a watercooling loop?

the gtx 590 is fine card i mean it have fine temps comparing it to GTX 480 but if you insist to go with liquid cooling for it you wont find the water block for it now i just explored ebay for waterblock for GTX 590 and i couldnt find it maybe in the future you can get it but for your rig its more than awesome get a case that you wont think to change it i will go with Corsair obsedian 800D its designed for water cooling and it will fit 3 fan radiator they will be good for cooling your entire rig
good luck

^^ @johnnyq8

590 GTX blocks, you mean like these: http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g30/c311/s1388/list/p1/Liquid_Cooling-Water_Blocks_VGA_-_Card_-_nVidia-GTX_590_Water_Blocks-Page1.html?

or these:

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_971_240_582&products_id=27860

Please do a little more research before posting misleading information. These blocks DO exist. Yes, blocks can be found on eBay, but it will not likely be the best place to find blocks for cards that are very newly released. I know you want to help, but your information isn't entirely relevant or accurate. I have created a sticky at the top of the watercooling forum to help new people find information and become acquainted with the concepts, design and theories of watercooling.

Edit: @delluser1- beat me to it... :)
