Building my first WC loop, looking for advice

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Here's the list of parts I want to order (so far):

- Aquaero 5 XT 160€ http://www.drako.it/drako_catalog/pr...oducts_id=5429
- Aquaremote 17€ http://www.drako.it/drako_catalog/pr...oducts_id=2286
- Multiswitch 80€ http://www.drako.it/drako_catalog/pr...oducts_id=3949
- Aquabox reservoir 40€ http://www.drako.it/drako_catalog/pr...oducts_id=1971
- RGB LED x2 20€ http://www.drako.it/drako_catalog/pr...oducts_id=2085
- Aquajet 8€ http://www.drako.it/drako_catalog/pr...oducts_id=7007
- Foam Sandwich Kit 9€ http://www.drako.it/drako_catalog/pr...oducts_id=5865
- Aquastream XT Ultra 100€ http://www.drako.it/drako_catalog/pr...oducts_id=4604
- Aquaero Flow Control Data Cable 4€ http://www.drako.it/drako_catalog/pr...oducts_id=6995
- Flow Meter 40€ http://www.drako.it/drako_catalog/pr...oducts_id=5936
- EK 360mm radiator 59€ http://www.drako.it/drako_catalog/pr...oducts_id=2064
- 2x1m tubing, 8/6mm UV blue 6€ http://www.drako.it/drako_catalog/pr...oducts_id=1202
- Anti-corrosion additive 10€ http://www.drako.it/drako_catalog/pr...oducts_id=6882
- 2x 90° plastic tube support 5€ http://www.drako.it/drako_catalog/pr...oducts_id=6787
- plastic tube support 2.5€ http://www.drako.it/drako_catalog/pr...oducts_id=6788
- 3x GentleTyphoon 60€ http://www.totalmodding.com/product_...oducts_id=6571
- EK copper CPU block 60€ http://www.drako.it/drako_catalog/pr...oducts_id=2022
- 10x fittings 24€ http://www.drako.it/drako_catalog/pr...oducts_id=3269
- 10x hose clamps 9€ http://www.drako.it/drako_catalog/pr...oducts_id=3970

Yes the grand total is over 700€, but fortunately budget is not exactly an issue.
Questions:
- first of all, is any important part missing?
- will they work together well?
- is the anti-corrosion liquid really necessary?
- is the tubing too small in diameter for good performance?

Note: I am above all interested in silence.

Finally if you are going to suggest different parts, choose them from the same store, it appears to be the italian store with the widest selection of components.

Thanks!

-I don't see a reservoir in your list but you do have an AquaJet for AquaTube reservoir ?
-Nickel plated EK is not a good choice right now, there is some issues with their nickel plating _ http://www.ekwaterblocks.com/index.p...t01returnid=17 .
-Such small diameter tubing adds some restriction, I'd use at least 13/10 mm tubing.
-I'd get 1150 rpm Gentle Typhoons, they are more quiet than Noctuas and work much better with radiators.

Thanks for the input.
The reservoir on my list is the Aquabox, it fits into a 5.25" bay.
How's this for a CPU block ? http://www.drako.it/drako_catalog/pr...oducts_id=8175

Didn't know you can use AquaJet with that res also. HeatKiller works but I see that you can get a copper version of EK Supreme HF at same price, it performs a little bit better.

Well me neither but from reading the description I think it should work. Hopefully.
