Using this for a 2500 K with SLi gtx 550 ti, so I guess I chose the right CPU waterblock.

I´m new to all this water cooling stuff (reason why I was going to go with Corsair´s H100) so if I missed any item needed please let me know.


Many thanks! :D

Your list only includes CPU loop components...assuming the 550's are staying on air for the time being?

Hi,
Couldn´t find waterblocks for the gtx 550 ti, if you know of any please let me know, and I will put them with the rest :D 

Thanks!

Probably have to go with universal blocks...not sure they make any full-covers for 550 Ti's...

Yup thought about that also, going to choose some universal ones then.

My problem with air cooling them is that I made a custom case, and I just made a test with tri sli 580 running inside the case with air cooling only and they were near 80ºC... a bit hot, and not even on load just plain running, my gpus are going to run cooler but I can´t risk damaging both the system nor the case (lots of work, dedication and money put on that case :D  )


About the rest of the parts are they ok? should I order them, or anything better for the same price?

Thanks! :D

I'd go with a 670. It performs ridiculously well compared to my OCed 560Ti (basically a 570), and you can add in another card later. Plus, the new cards have the framerate metering which helps reduce microstutter (I believe this is in the hardware, not the drivers).

The GTX 670 won't require a ton of rad space since it's typical TDP is 170W, and max is still less than 200W.
