Last check before purchasing - look good?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok, I'm about to finally pull the trigger...in a few moments. I've posted a few threads, asked some advice, and I've read a crapton.

Last questions:
1.) Is distilled water + silver/pt nuke truly the best for a beginner?
2.) How does this set up look?
3.) Is the pump sufficient?
4.) I'm purchasing a EK D5 top for the 655 pump. From what I can tell, the pump top allows use of any G 1/4" fitting -- I was planning on using 7/16" compression fittings. Would these be compatible?
5.) Do I need PT Nuke also? As you can see from my shopping cart I only have the kill coil (couldn't find PT NUKE on Frozen CPU )
6.) Any redflags with these components that you can tell?


Case: HAF 932 (modified by cutting lower HDD in half for a second 240 rad).

Yeah I have. Frozen CPU didn't have it (but I wanted XSPC for price, and the EK standoffs sorta weirded me out, so I went with Koolance). I might check another retailer. I want to get everything from the same place, though - I'm odd like that.

EDIT: Jab tech has that block. Maybe I'll get it there. It'd save me ~ $40 with shipping included.

EDIT: I might also drop the compression fittings. Those things really add up quickly lol. Or maybe I'll only use compressions on a few of the parts.
