Holy crap that is a nice build. I want to watercool my pc someday as well!

 

Nothing really stopping you!

 

I would highly recommend that you plan it out extensively, though. There's little point cooling a midrange set of GPUs (unless they're like the 560Ti's, which are the bees knees), but if you're dropping your bonus on some 670/680 SLI/Crossfire goodness when the new generation of GPUs hits the shelves while sitting around at home with your i5/i7 K series CPU ticking over below 4.6Ghz, then it's certainly a very good idea.

 

Personally, my first foray into watercooling was to see if I could actually do it and whether it was fun. It was immense fun, and I've yet to have a single leak on any machine (done half a dozen, so not a lot) due to thinking ahead and planning.

 

I plan to steal the sleeved tube idea (Yoink!) for a future build, perhaps when I do a full paracord next I'll get some of MDPCs chunky big sleeving for the watercooling loop. Chunky wires with chunky toobs!

Nice, thanks for the pointers.

 

I'm hoping there are some waterblocks for the 5870 out there, because I really want to stay with them for a while longer. The main reason why I want to watercool them is because the crossfire setup is making them run pretty hot.

Multi-GPU generally does (except for the original 9600GT cards, the coolers on those were fan-fu~~ing-tastic). Pun not intended.

 

You may have to buy your waterblocks second hand, but if you do be sure to check/ask what usage they've had and ask for high resolution pictures of the block (internally and threads if it's acrylic, since they may have cracked).
