Here is my list
CPU: AMD FX-6100
MOBO: ASrock 990fx
Ram: G.skill Ripjaws 4gb x 2 1866
GPU: HD Radeon 7870
PSU: Seasonic 750w bronze
HDD: WD Caviar black 1tb
SSD: Cosair Force


Water Cooling
CPU Block: XSPC RASA for AM3+
Pump: Laing D5 (Swiftech MCP-655-B)
Radiator: XSPC EX360
Reservoir: Bitspower-Z 150mm Res
Tubing: Durelene Saint Gobain 7/16" ID 5/8" OD High Flex Tubing 2 meters( 6.56 feet)
Fittings: 6 pcs of XSPC G1/4" to 7/16" ID 5/8" OD Black Sparkle Compression
Fans: 3 pcs or 6 pcs of Yate Loon D12SH-12 120mm (2200 rpm)
Thermal Compound: 1g of Scythe Thermal Elixir
Coolant: Clear Distilled Water with PT nuke mixture


trying to find a case that would fit this and not look over crowded.
I would like a case that I could mount the Reservoir above the pump inside the case right side of the MOBO.

I would really like a case that could mount the 360mm rad with p/p on it inside on top

Ow I see.

What other cases would you think that would fit the whole RASA RSX Kit inside with a little space in it.

RX, not RSX (RSX is the Acura 2-door sports car based on the Civic platform)

Which radiator size are you actually going for? It makes a big difference as both EX and RX are different sizes.

750W is complete overkill for this loop too.
And by this, you are meaning the PSU spec, not the loop TDP in watts.

I am just trying to cool my CPU for now.. I want it to run 4.5 stable. It's running 3.9 right now with the stock fan
 

You're really not going to get that much of a benefit from water in this case. A simple aircooler like the Hyper 212 EVO will let you hit those clocks. If you have the spare money, I would get another 7870 or a better CPU.

That was the next thing I would be buying

I just need a cooling set before i buy a new 7870 for Xfire and OC it. then enter it in the loop.

And RAM would be next. Need to save for the water blocks

Ok here's another problem

If add with the loop like and Xfire HD 7870 plus a ram water block is this enough for the whole loop?

Hmmm...well i am still new to watercooling but why would you cool ram doesn't make any sense to me so i am curious as to your reasoning for that ?

Because the ram get pretty hot due to the programs me and my brother use.

My brother does video and graphics design and a lot of editing

And I do a lot of audio work and a lot of compression of data.

and gaming at the side.

the ram sticks get nice and toasty after some time

As I remember doing multi tasking work makes great use of my ram or am I wrong about this?

Well a lot of work has fallen to me and my brother so I need to get more from my ram that I could. So a tad bit OC'd the ram to get more from it. Works wonders but makes it kinda toasty at some extent

Thanks on that input rubix

I was wondering if I make a CPU + Xfire GPU loop if that setup would be enough

i would watercool this case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146089

i never have considered coolermaster for watercooling, but if you really want a cm case go for the haf x over the storm trooper. as for cooling ram - it probably isn't worth doing because you would have to get either expensive ram that there are blocks for or a expensive universal ram block - and ram is about 20 bucks a stick so honestly i would rather burn 4 of my sticks out than have to put a block on it - and even then it most likely wont happen.
