You should buy Bitspower True Silver instead of Silver shining. That way, it will also kill the small things that will try to grow in your loop and steal the show. :)

Also, you just need to use DangerDen or Feser (Dazmode.com sell them for 9$) SLI/Crossfire fittings between the 2 cards.

With 2 480 in SLI, you will need 2 loops. I know, since I use 2 loops and 3 triple rads to cool my Tri-Crossfire (5970+5870) + i7 920 set-up.

And be prepared to see your ambient temp raising by 3 or 4 celsius after a couple of hours of gaming/benching. 480 SLI... that's some serious heat/watts to dissipate. Watercooling is not magic. The heat needs to get out somewhere!

With a larger loop you will need larger tubing , without going into a 6 page speal you will loose the ability to reject heat from your water blocks the larger your loop gets with small tubing . Volume will always be peffered over pressure , more volume more heat transfer . My 2 cents

hah shit eh well ive got a haf 932 modded alot and its not a small case either. but what i was thinking
was going with one of these mounted externally on the back:

Swiftech MCR220Drive

Its a rad/res combo and it comes with an mcp355 pump mounted on the bottom so it gets rid of some connections needed and the bulk which is what im looking for but im not sure if its enough for dissipating the heat made from two fermis.

With one of these to mount it:

Swiftech MCB-120 Rev 2 Radbox Radiator/fan housing - Black

and then using some 1/2 id tygon norprene tubing to connect to gpu 1:

Tygon A-60-G Norprene 1/2in. ID 5/8in. OD Industrial Tubing AFL00036

and then connecting gpu #1 and #2 with one of these:

Bitspower Matte Black G 1/4 1in. D-Plug Set for Direct Connect # BP-MBWP-C38

and these as fittings:

Bitspower Matt Black 1/2in. Compression Fittings for 5/8in. OD Tubing # BP-MBCPF-CC4

and of course two of these:

EVGA | Products

Just an idea what do you guys think? thanks

Wait, did I miss something or is that MCR220 cooling everything by itself You'll need more than a Swiftech 120.2 rad for two Fermis.
