Custom Loop options for S340?

In the future, I'm considering getting a custom loop for my computer (http://pcpartpicker.com/p/t6KJ4D) but have come to the realization of how limited space is in this case for such a thing. Would it be possible to cool either the cpu or the gpus (maybe even both?) with a custom loop or should I just not pursue it until my next build? I'm a bit new to watercooling, so sorry if I don't quite get the terminology right, thanks in advance!

two 970's and a 4790k? it's doable. a 240 or 280 front rad and a 120 rear mounted rad will work. I recommend the Alphacool XT45 240 rad for the front and the ST30 120 rad for the rear. this club has some watercooled builds in the case: http://www.overclock.net/t/1539786/nzxt-s340-club/0_40

Awesome! One last question: Since the xt45 is copper, the rest of the parts must be copper too right?

copper/brass/nicel are fine together. most rads are copper and brass (why Alphacool feels cool about their full copper) and plenty of cpu/gpu blocks use copper and nickel together. you don't want any aluminum in the loop. this EK block is compatible with your 970's: http://configurator.ekwb.com/waterblock/3831109830499#DB_inline?height=260&width=530&inline_id=comp_table

Alright then, I'll start looking at the other parts needed for the cooling. Thanks!
