Default how does this look for a set up.

what do you guys think of this stuff for a custom build at the end of january, also let me know if anything else is going to be released onto the market before then. i have not decided what to do for fans, but i am thinking of a 3 fans on a fan controller for each rad with a hollowed out fan on ether side to allow for better cooling, along with a quieter operation, the idea of the 4 rads is to allow me to run my setup really silent all the time. if you have any suggestion on something to change or to add let my know.

Is that 4x triple rads? Ultimate overkill.

Make sure that you can fit EK400 reservoir in your case.

What are you trying to cool? Four triple rads are completely unnecessary for just about anything.

1x5870 and an i7 920, and down the road, the mobo and another 5870.

A 920 and single 5870 would be easily handled by a single triple. Anything more would be a waste, and you'd require a substantially more powerful pump (or multiple pumps) in order to drive water through all those rads. You should consider going to a single triple or two duals.

Not trying to rain on your parade (hell if you want to run 4 triples and have enough power in your pump(s) then fill your boots), but as has already been stated, even 2 triples would be a bit of overkill.

In most cases, the only real reason to run more than a single rad is for cases which can't accept an internal triple. My understanding is that even the idea of running rads between each block (i.e. pump -> cpu block -> rad -> gpu block -> rad -> chipset ) in order to cool down the water after each stage doesn't make much of a difference as the whole loop tends to settle on pretty close to the same temp throughout the loop.

Like I said... not trying to rain on your parade... if you want to do it, it'd probably be pretty cool (looks wise), but won't be any cooler (temp wise) with less rads.

HK will give you degree or so down. But I personally love how does Supreme looks, so I use it in my rig.
