I just hooked up the Komodo GPU block and the extra 200mm radiator. My cooling system is

Reservoir > 1500 L/h Pump > 240mm Radiator > CPU > RAM> 200mm Radiator > 7970 > back to reservoir.

After upgrading the pump, 200mm rad, and adding the GPU my CPU tems have fallen alot. CPU used to idle around 50C now its 39C-42C. MY 7970 with stock cooler would also idle around 50C, now it idles around 29C. I also decided to get rid of that Ekoolant crap and go with distilled water with a kill coil.

That is Phenomenal for a first build!!!! Your rig looks like it was built by a seasoned pro.

What are your full specs and what kind of HD7970 is that or what kind of liquid cooler do you have for it?

Thanks for the compliments.The GPU cooler is the KOMODO-HD7900 series full cover VGA waterblock. My specs are

Intel i7 960 oc @ 4.1 GHz
12 GB Corsair Dominator GT RAM at 1700mhz
ASUS Rampage III Gene
Coolermaster Silent Pro Gold 800w PSU
Sandisk 240GB SSD
MSI R7970-2PMD3GD5 Radeon HD 7970
Alphacool VPP655 Pump 1,500 Liter/Hour

Right now I have my GPU at Power limit =20%, Core Clock= 1125 MHz, & Memory Clock= 1575 MHz. I'm going to try to get the core clock past 1300 but afterburner has been giving me problems trying to increase the voltage.

The case is a Corsair 600T and I must say the purchase I made that made me the happiest was the COOLER MASTER R4-S2S-124K-GP 120mm Case Fan 4 in 1 pack for $11.99. What a great deal on good fans.

Really pretty build, I like the White Light colour, bit of retro and modern!
