ASUS Sabertooth X79
hello i am think off build a new computer i like to use ASUS Sabertooth X79.I think off make a water cooling system or is the H100 will just do. i found a Motherboard water Block cooler do you think it a good thing to do...i like to do overclocking my system..
I water block the VRM and Chipset and there's nothing 'insane' about it, most folks need to OC their rigs and look & feel the temps (see how long you can grab the VRM)
About the only overkill IMO is to block <1.6Xv RAM and on the X79 blocking the: CPU, VRM & Chipset, RAM gets a little 'busy'. I try to use solid (fittings) on the X79 wherever possible when using (CPU, VRM & Chipset) blocks.
If the VRM gets too hot then they can induce CPU Throttle; i.e. CPU frequency goes down.
You will gain some stability - go for it!
this what i was think for the watercooling what do you think....

case i have Coolermaster Haf X i have chang the 200mm fans running 3 of Bitfenix Spectre Pro BFF-LPRO-20025R-RP 200MM Red LED Case Fan 900 RPM 148.72 CFM 27.5 dbA
i have 2 evga 560ti 448 cores. i was think off
My preference is ID: 10mm (3/8in); OD: 13mm (1/2in) ; better pressure and looks. I'm not a HAF X fan either. I agree with the remainder of the parts, but if you're going to water cool then IMO add the GPU(s). Further, I don't want to engage in a GPU debate, I assume you're looking into 3D Vision based upon the 120Hz monitor. The GTX 560 Ti 448 primary 'plus' is it doesn't limit you to 2-WAY SLI, but the GTX 500 lines require more cooling over the GTX 600 series and HD 7000 series.
Good info on 3D Vision; as you selected make certain the monitor offers LightBoost - http://www.nvidia.com/object/3d-vision-system-requirements.html
Problem - Koolance (I like Koolance) has a more limited selection for GPU Blocks vs EK's selection - http://www.coolingconfigurator.com/ Meaning,never 'assume' a generic GPU block will fit.
Fans - Ryan did one of the best reviews I've seen - http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/331629-28-cooling-roundup-2012
IF you plan to water block the GPUs then you'll need second exchanger.
What GTX 560 Ti 448 do you have? I know EK makes full blocks for ASUS & EVGA.
As far as the XFX PSU, I've seen some positive reviews. For 'me' I like Corsair, SeaSonic and Enermax. The Corsair AX and HX (extensions for 8/24/PCIe(2)) offers fully sleeved cabling - http://www.corsair.com/power-supply-units/psu-accessories.html
IF all you're doing is SB-E and 2-WAY you 'can' get by with an 850W e.g. AX850 and IF the plan is 3-WAY then the AX1200.
