hello folks,


So I am thinking of upgrading my PC soon and want some help compiling a list of parts I will need I am looking @ the following

mobo: Asus Rampage IV Extreme Socket 2011 Intel x79 Chipset Quad-channel
CPU : Intel Core i7-3820 Quad-Core
Video card : AMD Radeon HD 7970
ram: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series DDR3 2133MHz (PC3-17000) 32GB (4x8GB) Dual Channel Kit
HDD: 2TB sata 3 HDD x2
case : Corsair Obsidian Series 800D Full Tower ATX PC Case
PS: Corsair Professional Series Gold AX1200 Fully-Modular 1200 Watt 80 PLUS Gold Certified Power Supply


Now I want to water cool everything except the HDD and the PS.
I have no idea what parts I will need to water cool all of these with water. but I was hoping you fellow nerds could help me compile a list of parts I would need.

and for the added challenge... because I cant make it THAT easy... I need these parts to be able to be purchased in Canada preferably.

I live in Toronto.

Does that mean watercooling RAM as well?
And the motherboard?

Or are you talking just the CPU and Graphics card?

How much do you want to budget for the custom water cooling setup?

rampage iv xtreme with 3820?i would suggest 3930k with rampage formula.and also 680 instead of 7970.it's cheaper and faster.AX1200 is a big overkill.a quality 850w is more than enough.

the chip I am getting for free, but I can sell the chip and get the 3930k. the 7970 has 3gigs of ram whereas the 680 has only 2, will that not make a fair difference?

price is not an issue, but would like to keep it on the lower end of the spectrum.

I was thinking a 1200 because I want to run a crossfire or a SLI setup at some point. and as new and more powerful parts come out I can use the PS for a long time to come.

and yes water cooling the mobo and RAM, video card, and cpu.

We usually don't see much reason the get a 1200W PSU for most SLI setups.
But with a extreme custom water cooling option it might not be a bad idea.

Are you heading toward a 3 monitor Eyefinity or Nvidia Surround setup?

Personally, I'd rather see you work toward a CFX/SLI set up with multiple monitors than spend extra doing water cooling that's not actually necessary to keep a system 'cool enough'

eventually I will probably get a 3 monitor setup

And full water-cooling too, I suppose?

when I build my computer I will get as many water cooling parts as I can as well @ the same time.
