My System Specs

Default New Build, PSU/WC Advice

Looking for some PSU/Water cooling suggestions on a new build.

I have already purchased most of the stuff.

I have the PSU's currently down to the Enermax Maxrevo 1350W, Corsair AX1200W, or the XFX PRO1250W, although I am open to other suggetions. (Not sure if I am going overboard in my selections here)

Also need to find a good 240MM Rad that will mount (hopefully) to fans on the Hard Drive bays of the NZXT 810, and then probally another D5 Pump for the second loop, as well as full coverage blocks for the 7970's (Probally EK Acetal Blocks).

Any advice is much appreciated.

List of parts going in the system below.

Stuff already purchased.

Case: NZXT Switch 810 Black
CPU: 3930K
Mobo: Asus Sabretooth X79
Ram: 8x4GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600
GPU: 2X Gigabyte 7970 OC
SSD: 2x Corsair Force Series GT 120GB in Raid 0
HDD: 4x WD Green 3TB
Optical: No Optical Drives

5x NZXT FN-140RB 140mm Fans
6x Yate Loon D12SH-12 120mm Fans
1x XSPC RX360 Rad
1x Dazmode Storm D5 Pump
1x XSPC Raystorm Cpu Block
1x XSPC Dual Bay Rez/Pump

Stuff Yet to be Purchased
240MM Rad for GPU
Secondary Pump
Secondary Rez
2x Full Coverage blocks for Gigabyte 7970OC

For the PSU i would recommend the corsair AX1200 out of the 3, hard to go wrong with corsair these days. Here's a review if you need Corsair AX1200 1200W Review

A good slim rad would probably be along the likes of this XSPC EX240 Dual 120mm Low Profile Split Fin Radiator - FrozenCPU.com

Hmm i would say that a D5 might be overkill for the second loop as gpu blocks generally have very low resistance. One of swiftech's DDC pumps would suffice, unless that dual bay w/ pump is meant for a second D5?

Can't really think of anything else except my envy for such a high end build, cripes i wouldn't know what to do with 12TB of drive space
