    5 loop liquid cooling! possibly. i am newish to liquid but i am probably going to overclock the living **** out of it. and i also dont know how far the coolant will go through and through how many radiators perloop etc so i was figuring that dual loop d5 ek for mobo+ cpus then do an individual loop for each 680 so i can oc to insane levels... unless i should phase change but i don't know about condensation with that stuff. they even got 1 that fits GPU.


    and frozen cpuhas the classified 4gb preinstalled coolers on it for 760 a piece so i was thinking about them if they are that much better than the asus 680s with the VGA hotwire feature.

    cpu and mobo on one loop, and gpu's in one loop.
    you can get a bridge for the gpu's or you can use a "spacer" between them. ( a pipe you can adjust )
    http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...59_346_393_766
    going dual cpu's i dont know.
    whats been told to me is that you cant use both cpu's at once ( this was told to me a few years back and i dont know how it is now )
    for multi monitor i would go for the 4gig cards.
    for this you have to have a few radiators, its those who cools down the fluid, and fans ( you have to have a good ones here too ) have to push a good deal of air.
    and you have to remember the temp in the room too.
    as per now im on idle and i only cool cpu and NB and its around 30-36+c in my loop and im cooling it whit a 360 rad. ( my heating, a/c is right by it so it adds some temp )
    so my guess is you will be around 5-10+c abowe the room temp. ( this is just guessing, i just started whit it too ).
    personaly i would go for a dual loop there, 1 for cpu and NB ( mobo parts ) and one for the GPU's.
    what sort of fans are you planing to have in there?

    I was just thinking of doing 2 loops for the graphics cards atleast seeing as they are one of the main heat sources. i was looking at those dual eks and figured why not.

    does the gtx680 reach limits at x8? ior how many of them is optimal on that rog board

    i had been considering doing basically the same build but less gtx 680s and more processors. or should i just get a server board and get an 8core or will that not be good for gaming?

    I know you go dual processors with processor biased software. either cad or its counterpart one is graphics biased one is processor biased.

    and i know about bridges i was just thinking of maximum cooling capabilities as my environment is very hot during the summer. no humidity though.



    and as far as fans I haent decided yet. u got any suggestions? i need 10ish 140s and 15ish 120s

    the r4e can do cad/cam programs. the other board is server based as you mentioned your self ( mass storrage servers for example )
    http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Int...specifications
    always look at the specs of the board/boards your after, same whit other parts.
    you dont need more the 2 680's ( my opinnion ) and you can run them in 16x ( 4 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16; x16/x16; x16/x8/x16 and x16/x8/x8/x8, red) )
    and runing each in seperate loop is a waste of monney realy.
    run them in one loop and you will benefit of it.
    run a total of 2 loops ( one on the motherboard and one on the gpu's )
    1 360 for mobo and mabye 1 or 2 360's on the gpu's if your realy picky on it.
    or else you have to run 2 PSU's
    but do what you want.
    this is my serious opinnion.

    yes 1 pump per loop.
    you should be able to cool the cpu and ram and NB whit one 360 ( 3 x 120mm )
    and 2 x 680's whit one 360
    or you can add a 120 and 240 to one of the loops.
    if you are patient, get the pc parts and the case you want first, and then start to think about the watercooling.
    that way you can plan the loop and think about what parts you need, when i ordered i did not think well tru it, and had to change things in the build prosess. i ordered first and had to send in a second and a third order later.
    get fans that have good static preshure mmH2O.
    i ordered some noctuas ( witch i regret i did after ) and switched them out whit some Eloop's by Noiseblocker ( Noiseblocker NB-eLoop B12-3 Bionic fan 1900rpm ( 120x120x25mm ) )
    get fans you can controll, and try and get ones you can turn the fan speed down low on. and start voltage too.
    heres a pic ( and specs ) of the ones i have, this is a internet store but it have the specs of the fans : http://www.heatsinkfactory.com/nb-eloop-b12-3.html
    i have mine in push/pull config.
    and you need a controller to controll all the fans too ( mobo cant handle all those fans on the headers )

    a rad is defined as the size times the amount of fans on one side
    lets say you want a 360 radiator , 3 x 120 fans side by side = 360
    or 420 radiator, 3 x 140 fans side by side = 420
    or a 240 radiator, 2 x 120 = 240
