I currently have the following build:
Intel i7 3960x
Corsair H100 CPU
Corsair 16 GB (4x4 DDR3) RAM
OCZ Vertex 3
Corsair 650D
2 x NVIDIA GTX 590
Corsair 1200 watt power supply

I need a water cooling kit for the graphics card and computer in general, except I already have the Corsair H100 cooling for the CPU, so I need to know which parts I need for the best liquid cooling and I prefer they look good too. Thank you!

Watercool HEATKILLER® GPU-X³ GTX590 "Hole Edition" for Nvidia Reference Design GTX590

EK-FC590 GTX for Nvidia GTX 590 Reference Design - Copper/Acetal

EK-FC590 GTX for Nvidia GTX 590 Reference Design - Acetal/EN (Nickel)

These are a couple of water blocks to look at that will fit the GTX 590 , there are more to choose from and you can find those on the site at performance Pc . com.

Alphacool VPP655 - G1/4 IG complete with D5 HF Top

Phobya Balancer 150 Silver Nickel

Black Ice® GTX Gen Two Xtreme 480 Highest Performance Radiator



Feser/Noiseblocker Triebwerk TK-123 NB-Multiframe® 120mm x 55mm High Speed Fan - 2800 RPM
$29.95 X4

This will give you an idea of what parts that you need , naturally there are a lot to choose from and you can get less expensive parts and more expensive ones as well , but that site has a lot of options and different parts to choose from. It does take a bit of planning to map out your loop and if you want to include the ram or not. Since you have a cpu cooler you may want to stick with that or you can get a cpu block and include it in your loop. You also want to plan where you will be putting the radiator and the resivoir plus make sure you have a quick disconnect and a fill port and a way to drain.
There are stickey posts in the forum for water cooling tips and for a first time install you do want to get as much info as you can.
If you need any help you can always send me a private message , I have been water cooling my computers for a number of years now and have a lot of experience.

Most of the kits come with a cpu water block so you would want to decide if you want to include the cpu if you went with a kit.
