Looks good however I would change the tubing for XSPC as its much cheaper and just as good. Been using it for 3 years in my builds. Using the UV Blue now infact smile.gif

Also just go to Halfords and pick up 5 litres of distilled for a fiver like I did as you will prob find 1 litre is not enough if for instance you spill any.

I would also change the fittings to EK as they are much cheaper and look a hell of a lot better than those Bitspower fittings.

Edit - Would also change the block for this

Thats true however the one I linked is using the new process for plating.

If I had to choose between the two blocks, I would have to go with the 370, since it looks more bad-ass. cool.gif Also, I would recommend water-cooling your video card as well to get a hefty OC on it. smile.gif

The CPU370 performs slightly better than the EK Supreme HF if you're an every .1c counts kinda person.

Scratch that, I was thinking of the Kryos.

Cheaper and more widely available too i think.

I use XSPC myself. The downside is i can pretty much guarantee that you won't be able to use those Bitspower fittings on it.

XSPC tubing has it's own unique thickness and as a result you can only really gaurantee a good fit with XSPC barbs/fittings.

Bit sneaky of XSPC but eh, thats business.

The Liang D5 too, excellent pump.
