there are 2 pages there. Vid card is air cooled (not installed) because I will be upgrading it soon and the vid watertblocks are very expensive.

Loop is designed this way:

Chipset > Mosfet 1 > Mosfet 2 > Radiator 1 > CPU > Hard Drives > Filter > Reservoir > Pump > Radiator 2 > Chipset

New vid card will have a 2x120 mm radiator on top of the case and be sitting before the chipset.

Pump is 12v Swiftech 700 L/h (180 GPH), mag drive with ceramic bearings.

PSU is 800 W pc power and cooling
CPU is I7 920 SLBEJ @ 2.66 (I figure 4.2 will be possible)
Ram is 6 GB (3x2) PC 10666 OCZ, triple channel
HDD are 1 TB RAID10, 4x 500 GB WD Blue WD5000AAKS
Mobo is ASUS P6t Deluxe V2
Case is Aopen Hi-tower from ancient times
Vid is EVGA GTX 260 Superclocked, 216 cores

Rads are Swiftech 3x120 mm, waterblocks are Danger Den on HDDs, Zalman GB5 on CPU, BitsPower on chipset and mosfets, reservoir is acrylic Swiftech.

Fluid is distilled water (for now, plus 10% rubbing alcohol for murdering algae).

Combined time to build the whole thing ~ 3 days. Finding chipset waterblocks was a huge pain in the ass.

I identified several components that heat up and I will stick tiny copper heatsinks on them with epoxy.

The whole thing is cooled by a 120 mm fan that blows the air inside from the frony and out thru the side where rads are mounted, cooling both passive mobo components and the rads in one shot.
