Hey guys I'm planning on a build in about a month or so, so I was doing my research and I heard that the xfx 6990's fans are REALLY loud so I thought why not go and water cool my gpu and cpu. So I was wondering what size radiator I should get for this and would it be possible to mount the radiator on the top of the inside of my case which is going to be a Cooler Master HAF X. Lastly it would be awesome if someone would link me good water cooling parts that would cover everything I need. Thank you guys :D

You'll want atleast a 360 rad but if you can spend the extra money and if you have the room why not go with a 480. For radiator's a general rule of thumb is 120mm per block, but that doesn't really paint the whole picture. Also for radiator fan cooling you want high static pressure/cfm. Some fans can achieve good results at a much lower rpm than others.
