So I was wondering if anyone had a good guide on how to do it and if anyone could link me a good complete watercooling system or the parts because I'm a noob when it comes to watercooling and it would be awesome if someone would teach me how and what to do/buy. Thank you a lot guys :D
1. Rosewill Blackhawk Ultra. Sorry for linking another forum to show a comparison between the HAFX and BHU in a water-cooled rig.

3. There goes your hopes of a quite rig. Unless you are willing to invest in water blocks for your HD6990, or air-coolers.

4. You could easily go for 850w silver PSU and save for a better video solution.
yeah like the 6990s are really loud and hot so that's why I wanted to watercool it, do you have any recommendations when it comes to watercooling?
