Hey guys, going to build a custom water cooling system. I'm very excited but I don't want to rush, I want to be totally sure that everything will work. Ok first thing first, this is going to be extreme, but small and compact in some aspects.

The system specs.
Intel core i7 980x
Hd 5970 toxic 4gb x2 in crossfire
12gb ram, cl6 and 1600mhz
Asus rampage III extreme Mobo
ssd x2 in raid 0 and external hdd with usb 3.0

That seems quite good right? No compability issues?

Lets talk about cooling and power, this stuff makes me real confused and worried.
Since this system is small I need an very small powersupply, maybe external, or could you have both? Like a power bost machine or something?

There are two radiators a triple 120mm (360), double 92mm (180?). Is that good enough to cool the system with low noise levels? Any fans you recomend?

Your PSU will need to be quite powerful as you know. Can you provide a link to the specs on the case. I think we need more info to give advice.

Well yeah of cours it needs to be powerful. No link though, the case is custom, but just ask for what info ypu need and I'll give it to you =)

a link to a pic would help, but dimensions for the available area for the PSU would be good too.
