Upon ordering a second gpu for crossfirex I've come to the realization that two large 6950's are going to put out a lot of heat. That being said Im new to liquid cooling, so I'm asking for help recommending a gpu liquid cooling kit or at least help in assembling a kit, as I myself could find a prebuilt kit.
I will be using 2 HIS ice q turbo 6950 2gb cards in a Haf 932 full tower
Note: I am already running a corsair H70 liquid cooler on my CPU.
Iif I have forgotten anything please let me know.

Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks !

Heat doesn't seem to be a problem with these cards, why don't you see if you have a problem first, full coverage water blocks by themselves are probably easily 100 bucks apiece.

Ouch! :o  More like 140 bucks each! http://www.swiftech.com/komodo-hd6900.aspx#tab4 and you have to be sure to get the right one!

^ Much cheaper!

But the GPU water blocks are useless without the rest of it.

In most cases it's cheaper to get the kit that comes with a CPU block than buy the parts individually, but shop around you may find a cheaper kit.

@Branden_64 You're looking at a considerable chunk of money for everything you'll need, which is fine if you really need it?

I had 2 6950 2GBs and they ran pretty cool (granted, they aren't cold, but it's better than my GTX 470s...).

But I agree with Ryan here - you're trying to fix a problem that you don't even have yet.
