Hey everyone ive got the corsair 800D case and 2 GTX 680s and a i7 3930k with the gigabyte GA-X79S-UP5. I havnt ordered any RAM yet for the system i have 8 gb of corsair vengeance atm. id like to use a 360 rad up top and a 240 rad in the bottom with some modding of the case. for the pump i was thinking the swiftech MCP655.

if you would want a cleaner setup do the MCP35X with a reservoir on the top of that, but that might be too little pump power since you have 2 gpu's and any memory blocks or chipsets with that i7

Its pretty worthless to watercool memory and the chipset IMO. Especially memory. No benefits at all, just more restriction on the loop.

MT Alex runs the MCP35X with the Maelstrom res with CPU, and 2 HD5870s and 2 rads. (360 and 240 radiator) MCP35X handles it fine.

This post is the EXACT same, word for word, as the OP in your other thread.

I'm not sure what the deal is, you obviously had to cut and paste.
