Best WCing parts for my setup

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:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119225

CPU: Intel Core i5 3570k IB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116504

Mobo ASUS Z77 Sabertooth: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131821&Tpk=z77%20Sabertooth

PSU Corsair HX 1050w: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139034 -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: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233183

HDD WD 1TB Caviar Black x2 in RAID 1

SSD OCZ Vertex 4 128GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227791

GPU EVGA Hydro Copper GTX680*: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130772

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

  1. P.S.

    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 ;)

    Cheers!

  3. Have you read through the watercooling sticky?
  4. 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:
