i would ditch the blue coolant you will NEVER see it inside your blue pipe or res.

you will need atleast 2 of those 2x120mm RADs

be aware motherboard blocks create SERUIOUS pressure issues restricting flow ALOT. question your self. Do i really need a motherboard block?

if you do make sure you get a VERY strong pump.

Thank you so much!

So is a CPU and GPU the only things capable of water cooling? And are you saying a MoBo water cooler is not necessary? Ok wiill consider it all but i was wondering how many fittings/adapters do i need?

Thanks!

A single 2x120 for a CPU and GPU?

^Very much agree, here.

Also agree that you don't really need MB blocks, but the Crosshair boards do get very hot, so maybe it's needed...I'd never own one simply based on the issues people have with them.

Would you suggest this radiator setup?

2x200mm (1 at the front of the case and 1 on the top) and a single 120mm radiator at the back of the case?

or

1x200mm at the front and 2x120 at the top with a single 120mm radiator at the back?

Thanks!

This will net you more surface area in rads. Do you have 200mm fans already there for use, or going to get a couple if you go this route?

i have just found out what case i am going to use and need your help, please!

Okay, i'm going to use this case http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i... and was wondering about what radiator i need? Will this radiator do http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i...

This is basically all my water cooling components:

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i...

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i...

in this case http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i... ?

I was planning on putting the radiator in place of the 200mm top fan.

Do i need to mount 2 140mm fans on the radiator? And will this radiator be enough for the CPU http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i... and GPU http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i... ?

Thank you so so much!
