Hey guys! First off I'd like to thank you for taking a look at my post. Secondly I will list my components for you. Thirdly my question that I need help with.

1 x COOLER MASTER HAF 932 Advanced Blue Edition RC-932-KKN3-GP ATX Full Tower Computer Case
2 x Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD5000HHTZ 500GB 10000 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s
1 x COOLER MASTER Silent Pro RSA00-AMBAJ3-US 1000W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V v2.92 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular PSU
1 x ASUS P9X79 PRO LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with USB BIOS
1 x Intel Core i7-3930K Sandy Bridge-E 3.2GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 2011 130W Six-Core Desktop Processor
1 x Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit
1 x SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC128D/AM 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
1 x CORSAIR Vengeance 32GB (8 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory
1 x bgears b-Blaster 140 140mm Case Fan (Exhaust)

1 x EVGA GeForce GTX 680 FTW+ w/Backplate 4GB GPU
1 x ASUS Xonar Essence STX Virtual 7.1 Channels PCI Express x1 Interface 124 dB SNR / Headphone AMP Card

I just built my first custom computer and I am totally unsatisfied with my GPU temps. I am getting fine temps with the h100 for my CPU, but it is not overclocked so that is expected. I now want to totally water-cool the system. I have another evga gtx 680 ftw + 4gb graphics card on the way and I plan to SLI the two. I also plan on getting two EK EVGA GeForce 680 GTX FTW VGA Liquid Cooling Block - Acetal + Nickel CSQ (EK-FC680 GTX FTW water-blocks for them both. Now this is where I need some help. The swiftech h220 was recently unveiled and in the video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZgctchIQ7M) I see that it is actually pretty customizable. Towards the end you see a system that has the H220 cooling two gtx 680s, and a cpu. It is also supposedly powerful enough to push through two or three radiators. So what I would like to do is have the Swiftech H220 and set up a little custom loop cooling my cpu and two gtx 680 ftws. Apparently the pump is 6 times stronger/better than the h100 and no other pumps would be needed, but to get good temps what kind of radiators would I need? I am also getting the Corsair 900D case that has plenty of room for radiators so space should not be a problem. If you guys could please let me know what you think what what I would need to accomplish this that would be great (such as radiators, size of them, fans used, placement of radiators, etc.) Thank you very much for viewing this I look forward to the responses.
