Im not sure if im posting this is the right place but here goes.

I recently ordered my new pc parts and i want to watercool it if at all possible. I have built several air cooled systems and moderately overclocked before, but i like the asthetics of watercooling and the potential for even higher oc's than i have done in the past.

I have a 800d case which from what i have read should give me enough room to house everything.

I have a i7-3770k with the asus maximus v formula.

I have a corsair 1000w psu.

and last but not least i have 2 7970's in crossfire.

I want to oc both the cpu and the 7970's. I dont think ocing anything else would be worth the money compared to performance but i could be wrong.

I basically want to know what rad, pump and blocks i should get. The tubing, res and the rest of the accesories i should be able to pick on my own. I want most everything to fit inside the case if possible. If not thats ok but first priority is inside. I want to run as close if not below ambent temperatures and i dont really want to get above 70c with and overclocked cpu at around 4.5 or higher. Price is not really a factor but cheaper is better as always!

Thanks for the help,
