hehe nice, im exited to order my gtx280 and water kit. that mountain mods case must be so huge. i =m moding my case to fit my 240 rad, i have everything picked out for the gpu and water cooling kit its gonna cost me 860$. im doing a cpu loop only, as everythign else is fine air cooled, and i do not have teh cash to get a big mountain mods case like you to fit 2 loops. anyway things are heating up quite a bit on oru forum, what im wonderign is where is hhammen with his phase qx9770 and tri sli gtx280 that hes been suposed to get, i havent even seen him on at all lately.

Everyone is water cooling wewt!!!

And ya i felt the same way gtplayer, My 8800 gt is silent with my accelero and chilling at 40c's as we speak. What would adding my gpu onto the loop gain me other then causing my cpu temps to go up and looking cooler and being more compact and costing me quite a bit more money that I don't have for nearly the same temps I DO have.

There's no need to WC your gpu unless you plan on voltmodding.
