Hey there James, thank u for answering my post and being so kind.
well yeah man like i said before i wanna build a complete liquid cooler set for my CPU

nless you are planning on pumping a lot of volts into your chipset, watercooling your chipset is just for show.


And yeah u r right thats too much and i dont want that i just wanna make sure that my GPU and CPU are fine and not have to worry about overheating now , i just have a question on this line what about the chipsets? i mean they dont get overheated? are they gonna be fine without a cooler or liquid cooler?
if so, then i dont care about that.
Now about the liquid cooler:

http://www.ncixus.co...655-B/Swiftech/ -pump
http://www.ncixus.co...-QP-K/Swiftech/ - rad
http://www.ncixus.co...60-R2/Swiftech/ - GPU block, unless you are dead set on the GTX295, then a full cover block is your best bet.
http://www.ncixus.co...-34/Primochill/ - tubing
http://www.ncixus.co...-C01/Bitspower/ -barbs x6 (you'll want to replace the plastic ones on the GPU block, need it for the RAD and reservoir)
http://www.ncixus.co...a...1&sku=22498 x6 (for every barb, have one clamp to prevent leaks)
http://www.ncixus :) .com/products/productdeta...1&sku=19860 (assuming you want to mount the RAD to the back of your case)


I have to buy all those components in order to build my liquid cooler set right? i just wanna buy those components for the lowest price u know what im saying i mean if u can tell me where i can find them cheaper than NCIX's that will be great!

Now do u really think that my overall build is fine? i mean dont u wanna change something compared to NCIX i mean he has some pretty good videos showing new things and good stuff i mean u can tell me if u have a better advice for my overall build,please. :)

so lets get to it! im gonna build a new list and show it to you or i would prefer to wait until u post ur answer to this post so i can add new ideas to my list building { Remember my friend, i need an extreme gaming computer and the best liquid cooler )

==================================================================================================

Things that I think you should change in your overall build.
Arctic Silver 5 I believe should be changed to MX-2. Arctic Silver 5 conducts electricity, MX-2 does not.
VelociRaptor are pointless at this point. I suggest you invest into a SSD for your OS/game installs. Intel X-25 would be my suggestion.


which one?

http://www.newegg.co.......p;x=11&y=26
http://www.newegg.co...s...636&Tpk=SSD

i will stick to this one http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819115213

Thank u so much! my friend we'll be in touch ... ill be answering after ur reply.
Have a good night sir!.

Arctic Cooling MX-2 Thermal Compound is what James was referring to... http://www.newegg.co...6-020-_-Product

Also this Intel SSD drive is known as one of the best right now, you sure do pay for it though! http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820167014 I do believe there are cheaper X-25 drives which are non-extreme models, they are good as well.

And also I'm pretty sure NCIX is the way to go, from memory that's the place where they do price matching, so you can buy it all from them and if you find it cheaper elsewhere they'll match or beat it so you get the best value. :)

Cheers

i just have a question on this line what about the chipsets? i mean they dont get overheated? are they gonna be fine without a cooler or liquid cooler?
if so, then i dont care about that.

Like I said, unless you add an excessive amount of additional power into the chipset, there really shouldn't be any heating issues.

i just wanna buy those components for the lowest price u know what im saying i mean if u can tell me where i can find them cheaper than NCIX's that will be great!

I completely understand, but unfortunately I'm canadian, so I don't know of many American sites, unless they ship to canada.
PerformancePC
FrozenCPU
NCIXUS
Are the only ones I really know about that offer watercooling to the USA. Newegg does as well, but their selection pails in comparison. I'm happy to help with your build, but finding the cheapest price takes quite a bit of time and I like to leave that up to the end user :)

so lets get to it! im gonna build a new list and show it to you or i would prefer to wait until u post ur answer to this post so i can add new ideas to my list building { Remember my friend, i need an extreme gaming computer and the best liquid cooler )

If you want the best liquid cooling then you can upgrade you rad if you really want to.

im gonna build a new list and show it to you or i would prefer to wait until u post ur answer to this post so i can add new ideas to my list building

Post a new list of what you are thinking about.

from memory that's the place where they do price matching,

The canadian site does, which is why I'm loyal to the company as long as the feature remains. Sadly, I don't think its available on the USA site :)

While I'm sure the xtreme version from Intel is better (I wasn't even aware of its existence till just now), I know many people with the 'mainstream' SSD who are VERY happy with its performance. For the price perium you are paying for the extreme SSD, I'd defiantly say forget it and get the mainstream alternative. I plan on getting this exact SSD shortly.
