So Far i have:
- Danger Den Full Copper VGA block for my GTX480
- Fluid Xp+ Extreme coolant in Uv Green (so i dont corrode any parts or fry anything in case of a leak)
- Uv Green 3/8" Tubing with Uv Red anti- kink coils
- 2 Uv Cold Cathode lights to make it glow all purdy like
- Swiftec mcr-120xp 120mm radiator w/ Phobya nano 120mm double blade fan at 1500rpm with red LEDs and xspc radiator stand
- 2 extension cables for the lights to help with cable management
- 2 extra 3/8" barbs with o-rings, surface cleaners, and evga frosbite thermal paste for the install.

The Thermaltake case im getting ( http://www.xoxide.com/thermaltake-level ... ooled.html) has an extra slot for a 120mm fan in the floor of the case.. why they rationalize a fan to suck up hot air and dust/grime from the bottom of the case is beyond me. So i decided to go with a secondary smaller radiator in the loop to help with the cooling.

Ill be sure to update the build on here in case any of my brothers and sister wish to watercool like myself :D

I found a really informative forum that explains how to select your liquid components and how to prepare and leak test your system before use. It was a pretty good read.

So i ordered a secondary water pump in case the original pump fails or isnt strong enough to keep proper pressure in the water loop.

I chose a Swiftech MCP355.

It has a 120 GPH flow rate with a head pressure of 20 ft verticle. Pretty impressive for an itty bitty pump

And koro i derated the camera on my phone so i wouldnt have to resize it... stick that in ur toaster and toast it!! :o
