Cool, I has one too, but mine has a grey box.

Got the payment through and the Titan is on the way. Now to wait two weeks till I get paid and can afford the water cooling kit for it; I suspect this is going to feel much longer than just two weeks with the card sitting there waiting to be installed.

Okay it took longer than I planned (all my bills landing in the same pay check is so nice when it happens) but I have the money to get the cooling loop for my system; I did some research and put together this:

I think that should be able to handle the eventual 3-4 titans without trouble (probably leaving the CPU on the AIO cooler since its working fine) and I'd just need to get some more fittings as I get the other cards; anything I'm missing or could improve on?

Looks like a huge rad, you sure it will fit in your case?

It's an external self contained system; that's actually the reason I went with this company since they seemed to have the best external unit and I have no room whatsoever for an internal system and their unit has the reservoir, pump, and radiator all in one item so I don't have to do as much assembly and have fewer seals that could leak.

The rest of the stuff I chose to make assembling and expanding the loop easier as I get the other cards to add to it; quick disconnects where the tube enters and exits the case so I can move everything easier, another set of quick disconnects at the card since I'll have to play with the setup once I add more, and a drain valve to make it easier to drain the system when I expand the loop.

Sounds like a plan to me. :)

I have never done a cooling loop so can't offer any advice, but I hope it all works out for you.

Assuming that you plan on getting the Block separately, I see everything is in order.

However, I have only seen two of those cooling units in action but both times the unit itself was a bit loud.

Maybe get yourself a pedestal unit and enclose it, mountain mods and some manufacturers make stand alone pedestals/rad boxes.
