Hello everyone!

I been doing some research and been putting together a list of parts that I will start ordering in the near future. Currently I have the obsidian 900d case coming in and the Asus crosshair V formula Z mobo. I am looking to go all out on this rig, a good performer and nice looking.

Just need some one to look over some of the parts i picked out for the watercooling. Things might change but I feel like I have compiled a pretty good list so far.

quick list of my specs atm
cpu - FX 8320 will be overclocking it obviously
ram - 8gb 1600mhz for now will get 16gb 2x8 sticks sooner or later
gpu - will be a 290x maybe even 2 of them

TUBING - 1/2in ID x 3/4in OD thats what im planning on since the 900d is a huge case so bigger tubing will match it nicely I believe.

Also will get a 290x full block just have to decide first if I want 2 290x or just one.

Finally one 480 radiator on the bottom part of the case I was thinking about doing 2 480s one on the bottom one on top but I might do one 480 on the bottom and one 140 on the back and just fans on top.

This is as far as I got so far. Still researching and looking up different 900d builds to get ideas how I want this rig done. Im deff want good looks though hence why ima watercool the ram as well I like how it looks.

As for the fans I will probably use the corsair ones most likely the AF series for the case fans and SP for the radiators. I like the colored ring, Im going for a black and red theme.

Thanks for looking I know its alot to look over but thanks alot to everyone that does.
 
You have chosen some excellent parts. What is the purpose of the computer? In general I wouldn't recommend cooling the mother board. I would concentrate on the CPU & GPU. If you go much beyond that, you will have to do two loops.

Ahh ok yeah Im still debating what I want water cooled. Well the computer is going to be for me but I always wanted to build one thats just badass looking :) I was just planning on getting the case and mobo and switching everything over which I did, but now I might as well watercool it especially with all this room in the case. hehe.
