That is the biggest danger of going for water. :P

I'd agree with PedoBear.

Water cooling may seem like a daunting undertaking at first, but with a bit of patience and research you can become a pro quickly. In addition, for only a little bit more cost, you can get your Titans water cooled, and with a custom BIOS like the RR09SS BIOS they will boost to close to 1.1 Ghz auto-magically.

Also, you might want to check the QniX 2710 screeens from Ebay.

They are Samsung 27" high-resolution PLS panels that overclock to at least 96hz. I'm running one matte version with dual Titans to justify the horrid expense of these incredible video cards.

Good luck on the build! I look forward to seeing your log.

Looks good, my suggestions:
1. Ditch the Titans and go with a couple of 780's, either Classifieds or Asus....they out OC and outperform the Titans for far less coin.
2. AIO Water Cooler all the way....I tried the H100i (not noisy at all as you stated you had read)...it was okay as is the Swiftech H220...BUT, I believe you can fit a triple 360mm Rad in the top of that Cosmos II Case, in which case may as well spend a tad more on a Swiftech H320 360mm and "load it up with Noctuas"....see me System Specs ;) I'm running one with 6 Noctua NF F Series Fans in push / pul and can reach 5Ghz with a 3930K.....still heat is not the limiting factor!!
3. If your going to have numerous Fans get a decent high Wattage multi channel Fan Controller...turn them down for "silence" and crank em up for crazy OC'ing fun and benchmarking ;)

1866 or 2133 16GB Ram kit is plenty ;) ....

Enjoy!!!

I could be wrong about this but I believe I saw a post or two from Dazmode who will custom build any water cooling setup you want pro style. Send him the hardware and he will build it perfectly.

I could be wrong but I'm positive I saw a post about him doing this for people who wanted top end water setups.

Maybe I will hit up custom water setup next build atm this is end of life platform and I'm getting best it has to offer.

I'll check out the 360 swiftech clc. I'll turn my old Acer into a water cooling experiment when I'm done building this Beast.

Thank you for all advise so far I will take pics when building starts lol atm I haven't even opened the box to case or psu I'll do unboxing along way.

Honestly....no need for custom loop for your CPU.....unfortunately its out of stock, only $20 more than the H220...as said heat wont be an issue with the H320 cooler..

Swiftech H320 Quiet Power PLUG-AND-PLAY Liquid Cooling System 4 Pin 3x 120mm Fans 3/8 Fitting

I would recomend Water Blocks and Custom Loop for your GPU's though ;)

Is this swiftech a closed water cooler or one you need to fill on regular basis?

It's an AIO so closed loop.

Odd the discussion on ncix said the guy filled with distilled water. Maybe he's referring to a diff cooler.
