    Default Purple Snow by end of 2015

    I have a couple of questions regarding liquid cooling. I had a nameless build in mind but the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe has inspired me. Here's the parts list - Phanteks Enthoo LUXE Full Tower Case - PH-ES614L-WT

    SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA

    ASUS Xonar DX 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI

    Corsair Air Series AF140 CO-9050017-PLED 140mm Purple LED Quiet Edition x 5

    Are you going to add the Phanteks Hue lighting to the inside I don't see it on your list.
    That power supply will handle all your components and then some

    Yes, definitely the Hue lighting. Although the lighting in the black case stands out pretty well, (saw a some pics on someone's post here), I'm hoping that, down the road, Phanteks might have a clear window instead of the tinted one. With the brightness of the white case, it could drown out the the lighting inside case.

    I'm keeping my Sabertooth 990FX R2 and current hdd. After all is built, when it becomes possible, I want to liquid cool the cpu, memory, and the gfx. I'm guessing I should use 2 radiators and whatever else I need to set it all up. First question is, is the psu I've chosen enough to run it all, and, next question is what parts would you recommend? I would prefer to get most of my parts from a single company, but if there are better options, as in price/performance value, I'm open to suggestions.
    After getting everything together and making sure it is running right, the final step is liquid cooling. Even though this won't happen until late next year, I've started a list of parts so I can get an idea of the cost and whatever else I need to know about a liquid setup, so here's the parts so far -

    XSPC AX360 Triple-Fan Radiator - White $99.95

    XSPC AX240 Dual-Fan Radiator - White $79.95

    XSPC Single Bay Reservoir 5.25" - Aluminum Front - Black $39.95

    XSPC DDC-1T Plus 3.2 (18W) Pump $76.95

    XSPC Raystorm CPU/APU Waterblock - AMD $49.99

    XSPC Universal Memory Block + Side Plate $47.95

    Bit Fenix Spectre Pro Fan Series - 120mm - White $9.95 x 5

    I've left out the tubing, clamps, and liquid for now because I want to focus on the core parts. I've hit a bit of a snag looking for water blocks for R9-270X gfx cards. There are blocks for the chip only, but, I can't find anything for the whole card like they have for the "big cards". Again, this part of the build won't happen until everything else does, but I prefer to plan for these things ahead of time.
