    Assistance with watercooling

    I have been tinkering with the idea of purchasing a second 780ti and dropping my entire rig under water. I have never watercooled a computer before. I have surfed the EK website but since all the prices are in English pounds I don't have a clear idea of the total cost in US dollars.
    My rig is in my sig down below.

    I have a couple questions.
    #1 when cooling the graphics card besides getting a full block is the backplate required or just cosmetic (probably would buy it regardless)
    #2 for the H6M according to the EK link above I should get the Mosfet#1 and the SB in addition to the main CPU waterblock. Is this correct?
    #3 My case has room for a dual rad up top and I believe a triple on the front. Should I get both for optimal cooling?
    #4 If doing both should the order be Pump -> CPU/mosfet/sb -> dual rad -> GPUx2 -> triple rad -> Res?
    #5 If purchasing EK equipment would I use a resale company like FrozenCPU to purchase them in the US?

    Again just tinkering with the idea since the 780ti's have dropped in price and I think watercooling would be better if I go SLI.

    Hi,

    First about the currency on the EK site, the twist you have to do is to select the currency in the drop-down list on the right and select US Dollars. Then you can see the price in US but the VAT is still in the price. So all you have to do is to add the things you want in your cart and when you estimate the shipping fees with your zipcode the VAT will disapear and you end up with the real price. It's a bit wierd but....

    Now for your questions

    #1 The backplate is mostly cosmetic but it also serve has a passive cooler a little bit.
    #2 If you want to watercool your motherboard then yes your need then EK-MOSFET ASUS M6G and the EK-SB ASUS M6G. Remember that by adding the SB block your loop will be a bit more challenging since this block will be squeezed between your 2 GPU's.
    #3 With 2 780Ti I would suggest to have both rads.
    #4 That loop order is fine! But just for your information, there's no bad order in a watercooling loop except for the only one important fact the your reservoir must always feed your pump and your loop does.
    #5 In the US you have 2 great stores for your watercooling stuff which are FrozenCPU and Performance-PCs.

    If you have any other questions don't hesitate!
