Hi I am new in terms of posting, and new in respects to WCing aswell
I want this system to play Games such as Witcher 2, BF3 ect and future games for at least 1+yrs before adding in another 680 in SLI when games become to demanding for just the single 680, I am using an ASUS VG23AH 3D monitor at 1920 x 1080 =)

I would like a few(maybe 2-4) brand & model suggestions for WC parts to complement my future system(May-June):

Case: CM HAF X:

CPU: Intel Core i5 3570k IB:

Mobo ASUS Z77 Sabertooth:

PSU Corsair HX 1050w: -don't tell me I need less, I used the PSU Calc and including the 2nd 680 + CC's and fans, OCing to 5Ghz it was about 950w ;) 

RAM Corsair Dominator GT 2x4GB 1866Mhz:

HDD WD 1TB Caviar Black x2 in RAID 1

SSD OCZ Vertex 4 128GB

GPU EVGA Hydro Copper GTX680*:

hopefully this is enough information to recommend good parts!

I have an estimated budget of around $300-320 USD for all the parts, $350 MAX

I would prefer a 360mm RAD, because the case can support it.

Looking forward to your ideas/opinions!! =D

*2nd GPU will not be Liquid Cooled, will be air cooled. Probably. xD

Thanks, S4ndV1p3r

I would like to OC to 4.5-5Ghz Stable.
All Fan slots will be filled with green LED fans, I will have Green UV reactive Tubing and using Purified water with a Silver coil in the reservoir =)
I am only using a single loop with one RAD, I don't want to use more than that, as it will make the case look cluttered ;)

Have you read through the watercooling sticky?

Yes I have, it didn't make much sense though, I'm new to WCing and not too good with Physics ect =(

I really only know the types of parts I need, not brands and I have no idea of the different measurements used when buying parts(Pump etc ) :cry: 

Will someone please help me!? :ange:
