    Swiftech MCP655 pump
    Apogee GT CPU Block on a AM2+ board
    MCW60-R GPu for a 1Gb 4850

    Custom radiator with 1/2 copper tubing and aluminum fins. Kinda like this but only one or two layers thick.

    Use half of it for the CPU, and 1/4 each for the GPU's


    Three Arctic Cooling 50CFM 120mm fans.

    Both. I thought about using TEC's but the current Phenoms are more timing bound than heat it seems, and I like the quad PCIe slots, as I am going to SAS and x-fire when I get my system sold.


    Anyone know how much pressure this pump actually provides? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835108082
    I am planning no resovoir, but pressure pump to radiator to CPU to GPU to pump intake, and if I add another radiator and GPU will it still provide the flow needed to cool sufficiently? 1/2" tubing and fittings, no splits.
