If this really is something you are concerned about, there is a somewhat simple physical solution to help minimize your risks even further. Instead of mounting the radiator in the roof, mount in the front panel of your case as an intake. With a 900D, there may be a lower level option as well. On the rare occassion a cooler system develops a leak, it doesn't explode - it drips. By moving the radiator from the roof to the front or lower portion of the case, you remove most of your really expensive components from the drop zone. No water on the Ti's. No water on the memory or mainboard. There are some consequences to using the radiator as a front intake, like bringing warmer air into the case. However, there may also be consequences to having in the roof as well with a pair of 980 Ti's in SLI. Read the second half of this post. Start with Post 24 and ignore the garbage in the beginning. The heat from a pair of 980 Ti's appears to be substantial. There may be practical advantages to not putting it in the roof above the GPU's, so the roof and rear of the 900D can be used maximally to evacuate the heat from the case.
