With the zalman you can fit zalman's GPU block as well.

Guru3d did a review not too long back. Head over there and read their review.

Another plug for the Swiftech H20-220. This was my first attempt at water cooling and it was a very easy one. $140 at Newegg and comes with everything you need. It has the 220 rad along with fans and different plugs to allow for 12v, 7v, or 5v to give you the noise you can accept. For a 1st timer and very little modding required, I highly recommend this kit.

I need it for my GPU's as much as I need it for my CPU, too. My cards get too hot.

If you're going to cool multiple parts on one water cooling system it needs to be a good one, one of those cheap sub $200 setups on 1CPU and 2GPUS will likely 1. give you little if any temp reduction at all and 2. Fail with in a short period of time... the pumps just aren't built to handle any sort of high temp fluid going through them.

If you're going to go water cooling do it right, get a "kit" from Danger Den or some place like that and get a decent one or you may find a whole new meaning for the word FAIL.

Here ya go Zapa, a good starter kit for your CPU and it's even endorsed by Nvidia:

http://www.dangerden.com/store/produ...3&cat=2&page=1

find yourself a couple blocks for your vid cards and your set

you could always get yourself some after market coolers for your video cards, The "quad pipe cooling" on this 8800GT is essentially just the zalman after market cooler and keeps my card @ 38c idle and 54c is the max I've seen on it while gaming. I think you can get them for your cards.

build your own. Go with the same parts that MUYA has. Cooling your gpu(s) with water won't really get you much higher oc unless you mod the video cards themselves. It is a PITA because you can't have your gpu and your cpu in the same loop unless you get a thermochill pa120.3(good luck fitting that inside your case) and if you have an SLI rig forget it, you'll need multiple radiators and twice as many components.

Speaking of water cooling, I saw a Coolit Freezone for $150 on ebay the other day. It's a TEC cooler so it's better than water cooling. You might wanna try those instead since you're in the $100-200 area with water cooling.

I just want water cooling for my GPU's because they get pretty hot, even without an OC. If I'm going to use air cooling, I want a single slot solution and if that's the case, I might as well stick with the stock cooling :/.

I won't have to get more parts other than the GPU blocks if I get that kit?

50-55 is the spread between core 1 and core 4. Yup, block isn't seated correctly. I intend to try and fix that some day!
