Default Project:Demo

So I am building a demo PC to show at a Lan event coming up in Montreal. The goal is to build a dual loop water cooled system that requires little or no hard modding of the case (no cutting). Gigabyte is providing me the board to build the demo with and NVIDIA is supplying the graphics cards. The rest of the parts are being acquired the old fashioned way. So lets get this started with a list of whats going into this box.

Coolermaster ATCS 840 case (an older case, but I wanted its size and classic look)
Gigabyte X58-OC motherboard
12GB (3x4gb) of Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz
2x GTX 570
Creative Labs X-FI Titanium Fatality Pro
Intel 980X (from another build of mine)
2x Vertex 2 60GB SSD in Raid 0
2x Intel X25-M 80GB SSD in Raid 0 (have these kicking around, figured I might as well use them)
Power Supply TBD

Cooling system for the above:
EK Supreme HF Acetal waterblock
2x EK FC580 waterblocks (nickel plated)
XSPC dual bay/dual chamber res/pumptop
2x MCP655 pumps
Swiftech MCR320 Rad
Swifttech MCR220 Rad
7x Scythe Gentle Typhoon 1850RPM 28DBA
Bitspower compression fittings all around
Primochill PRO LRT hose. Not sure on the colour yet... trying to figure out what will go with the board. Will probably be either Green or Blue... or maybe both? Green for NV cards, and Blue for the Intel CPU loop!
