Something like that.

I think I ventured too far springing on the EVGA black friday deal.

I have to buy a $400 power supply, nearly $1500 in cooling to bring it down to manageable levels, a $300 case.....

Ugh. For what. Piece of **** can't even run wow at 20 fps. It can run Crysis though, but I don't like Crysis. Oh. It can play that game called 3DMark too.

My point is I deal with the folks who actually make the stuff and even have some input on designs (I designed the Danger Den SLI fittings).

If you want I will set you up a shopping list with links. I have done more water-cooling builds than anyone of these forums go check my builds page on my blog . . . .enough said. Did you say you are looking for a new case as well? preferences and limitations?
So you're recommending that stuff because they are good friends of your's? Can't imagine one pump being that effective for so many blocks, especially considering that the flow through the GPU blocks are very restrictive.

Must say the Typhoon III looks like a very interesting product!

why would you get 4x285 now when DX11 are around the corner?

I'm not a guru on water cooling, but if you want to put your CPU beyond its operational clock speed I'd say... if you're gonna spend that insane ammount of cash, spend some on lapping your CPU to ensure a proper flat surface and use a liquid metal compound instead of the 'typical' Arctic Silver 5 solution (which I always recommend to anyone asking me for an advice on PC building), you can get bit better temps (not always guaranteed, but it's a nice thing to think about).

About the loops, a big one is a no-no, too much components in my opinion, 2 separate loops are ok, even 3 would be safer (1x CPU+Chips, 1x 285+285, 1x 285+285), I'd even use a better radiator set than the BI's (but this choice usually differ between system builders, while they're very good for the vast majority of water-cooled builds, others may opt to use ThermoChill ones).

True story....

I'd take his advice, but having done a small-scale watercooled rig in an Antec 900... I can tell you that you definetly want to go with a legit case when you build this system... small cramped cases blow for running tubing.

Doesnt that eat into the cpu heatspreader and HS/Block and then go "off" in a bad way or something?

You should be making your own Diamond paste Darth, Home-made rocks!

Here is the link to the manufacturer page: CoolLaboratory Liquid Pro

Some forums like this one suggest up to 5ºC difference using CLP over other materials, but as I said before, results may differ.

Only if your HS/Block is made of aluminum, you have to use Copper or Silver ones with CLP.
