I spent $1400 on ten fans, a reservoir, two pumps, three radiators, three blocks, compression fittings for everything, tubing, dye, and a kill coil :(

:whoa:

I think I may have spent about half that at most.

GTX 770 replaced with watercooled GTX780...but too lazy to change the sig.

Well, you have the luck of living in the US, I live in Canada, so on top of the price of the items, there's the increase in cost due to exchange rate, massive shipping (~$250), then tax (~$150), and brokerage (~$200).

I'm not going to deny I bought some expensive stuff though, the CPU-370 and Sabertooth X79 waterblocks were about $300 together, then dual Laing D5's to go into a Koolance dual bay reservoir, fourteen Bitspower compression fittings, an easy drain fitting, then a Koolance high flow QDC where I'm going to he adding my GPU block, and two Enermax Red LED fans, and nine Gentle Typhoons, and three radiators (a single, dual, and triple) it's pricey stuff :(

No fans are worth that kind of coin. :lol:

I spent $50 on my 12 radiator fans. :lol:

Which is why I am going to be begging on my knees to gelid for a donation once the construction of the case is complete.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

I bought a ton of my parts second-hand as well.

$50 for fans (new)
$80 for my pump and CPU block (used)
$120 for my GPU block (new)
$20 for my other GPU block (used)
$120 for my reservoir (new)
$40 in misc barbs, clamps, etc
$25 in tubing
$40 in temperature sensors and displays

Not too bad really. :lol:

I'm somewhat jealous, haha. But it's not like I'm strapped for cash currently ;)
