    So I'm planning my next build and I'm going with liquid cooling cpu for sure but the gpu I want has liquid cooling too. And I'm going to be using SLI. So is it possible to mount a total of 3 exhaust fans?

    depends really on your case, what case you gonna use
    what do you mean by liquid cooling cpu and gpu?
    will you use AIO (like corsair liquid coolers) on them? or will you go with a full loop\custom loop\EKWB kit?

    one 120/140mm exhaust fan is more than enough as long as you have no negative air flow coming from the radiator fans and the rest of the system fans.

    keep in mind you need space for 2 of thoose gpu coolers in the front if you gona SLI..

    for the system of 3 AIO, i would just get a custom loop... like an ekwb kit...

    you don't need to worry about exaust much... you can use the top for exaust btw
    your first worry is if that stuff will fir the case..
    i considered to get 2 gpus each with an AIO mounted in them but i am kinda worried because the radiators are bigger than "120x120" (or 140x140) which can interfere with each other... i am kinda worried that you can't mount them togheter in the front...

    I would look for a newer case to start, that case came out well over 6 years ago
    newer cases are far more friendly when it comes to cable management, airflow, mounting for radiators

    cpu cooler I would go with a 240mm or a thick rad 120mm (like the H80i v2) rather than a thin 120mm, performance is going to surbpar with that

    I would get these gpu's instead

    Ways to mount this would be mount the 2 120mm from the gpu to the front of the case (some cases also allow it to be mounted in the bottom)
    cpu would go on the top (240mm) or the rear if you have a 120mm thick rad

    I'm looking into Ekwb kits and I can only find kits supporting cpu and single gpu

    Could I just buy a second water block and tube to extend the loop or would I have to get a better pump for that?

    Sorry I'm a noob lol. I'm fresh out of my computer repair class so I don't know much other than basics
