    Because I want to be able to clock my GPU and CPU a lot. Also, I hate the fucking noise from the fans. I want to be able to sleep with the computer turned on.

    - Yes, a minute on google will find the place. (I believe there's an eVGA 5970 with preinstalled watercool support)
    EVGA exclusively manufactures Nvidia cards.

    Because you can get that with 4000 dollars and its watercooled.

    Wait you lowered your budget.

    Which is also 800 dollars above the limit I set a few posts ago. Too bad I cannot update my thread title with that.

    You can just change some components (Only one graphic card at once for now by example; around -750/600€ for your budget)

    Great. So it's ok to sleep with the reservoir running?

    IN that case I withdraw my original statement. Thank you, I will take a look at it tomorrow. I'm off to bed now, night.

    I have estimated it's around $3000. I don't think it's A LOT of money. It's also going to hold longer because of watercooling with overclocking.

    I am a bit unsure though. The whole watercooling thing seems a bit scary, I've never attempted to build a computer with watercooling, so I have no idea on what to buy, and how to assemble them together. I would aprecciate if you could give me some pointers.

    Edit:

    Do you think EVGA X58 SLI/EVGA X58 SLI Micro would be a better choice for a motherboard? It's a lot cheaper.
    It is A LOT of money. Expecially on something so pointless. It's not like you are ever going to use it to it's full extent unless you still like to play crysis on a tripple head set up. FYI Crysis isn't fun anymore, and no game is that demanding. Why don't you build a decent computer and upgrade it when needed with the money you save.

    I think an i7 930, a 5850, 5870, GTX 470, or 480 and 6GB RAM is about the limit for maintaining sanity. Above that point I reckon it becomes a big waste of money.

    By the way, what is the most demanding thing this PC is going to have to do? And at what monitor res?

    Reservoirs do not run, they are containers that hold coolant. Pumps run and make very little noise I might add. The only time the Res is going to be noisy is if you have a front 5.25x2 waterfall res, Those defeat the purpose of WC for noise.

    This is what I would get for myself if I had 3,000 dollars to spend.

    It comes to 2,777 dollars for a corsair 700D, two 5970s, 1100-watt gold-certified power supply, 4 gigabytes of 2000 6-9-6-24-2N RAM, an i7-875k, tuniq tower 120 extreme, and a realSSD C300 128 gigabyte SSD.

    I probably wouldn't use any other hard drive, just the SSD, as I don't actually use much space. I'm a very minimalistic person. This computer I use has a 750 gigabyte hard drive and it shows up as 657 of 698 gigabytes free. Hell, I might buy two of them and put them in raid 0.

    Almost every argument (or lack of one) you had is stupid. That SSD has been reviewed and rated the fastest (sata) SSD out right now, roughly on par with the X25-M Generation 2 series. The PSU is fine. The RAM is fine.

    Do you think I just choose parts and not even bother to google them and look them up on tomshardware?

    No they aren't. Besides you are just being a brand fanboy rather than looking at the individual product.

    I've looked at the video, and decided with this build:

    Corsair Obsidian Series 800D - $300
    Intel Core i7 920 - $270
    Asus Rampage II Extreme - $415
    Asus Radeon HD 5970 (Dual GPU) - $770
    Corsair Dominator GT DDR3-2000 CL7 6 GB - $440
    Creative X-FI TITANIUM FATAL1TY champ - $245
    Zalman ZM-MFC3 - $90
    Chieftec A-135 Series 1000W PSU - $220
    CoolIT OMNI Interposer Plate AMD HD5970 - $85
    Watercool Heatkiller LT 3.0 CPU - $80

    I am not sure of what reservoir/pum etc I need.

    Rough estimate: $2915

    For A Pump get an M655 or M655B(50-80$) and dont get a res just put in a T-line, a T adapter is only like 10 bucks for an acrylic one. You also need a RAD don't you? (And the swiftech apogee XT is better than the HK LT).

    They don't sell the Swiftech Apogee XT anywhere in Norway. Is a T-Line a sort of reservoir? How do I keep the water from getting warmer? Does a pump supply the water with cooling? What's a RAD?

    just buy decent but quiet fans instead

    Jesus christ, looking at those parts and how overpriced they are you'd probably get better value from bloody Alienware.

    I put together $1800 builds on newegg that were better than this.

    Probably, I have no idea. Those parts are 2900 dollars after my estimate. Or 18913 Norwegian kroner.

    I still need help to find a reservoir. Would it be better with a T-Line and run tubing to my waterblocks?

    You norwegian people have too many money to spend on nothing..
    *Angry Dane rambling about how much oil Norway got from the Northsea-deal*
    That is way too many money to spend on a PC.. Why the hell would you have your computer on while you sleep anyway? With a SSD, it'll startup like powder in contact with a bazing firestorm! Use like 2500$ at max, and upgrade your computer later, for the rest of the money! Computers gets outdated very fast you now, it won't still be the shit in, like, two years! I know you well may have your arse full of money, but this is like throwing moey out of a window.
