My first attempt at water cooling + new build

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So this will be my second build, and I would love your feedback and input if you have any. I'm sure along the way I'll have some questions. So far here is my build:

Case: Haf X, was looking at the Haf 932 but the looks just didnt do it for me
CPU: I7 2600k
MB: Asus P8Z68 deluxe - not final, hate the color scheme
PSU: Corsair HX850
GPU: EVGA 580GTX classified hydro cooling
HDD: 1TB western digital black
SSD: 80GB, not sure on the brand yet, using for SSD caching
RAM: 8GB Corsair Dominator DDR3 1600Mhz
Windows 7 64bit

Watercooling Parts:

Reservoir: Koolance RP 450
Pump: Koolance pmp450 d5 vario x2
Radiator: RX360 and thermochill T.A. 120mm w/ noctua nfs12 120mm
Aerocool touch 2000
Fittings: bitspower: g4 1/2 ID 3/4 OD straight compression fittings x6
Fittings: bitspower: g4 1/2 ID 3/4 OD 45 degree compression fittings x 6
Stops: bitspower g4 stops x 6
Tubing: Tygon R3603 1/2 ID 3/4 OD 1/8" thick
CPU Block: koolance cpu370
Coolant - Looking at the feser coolant, but I havent heard great things about it. Might just go with distilled water with blue dye and pt nuke

My single loop will be the norm, res-pump-360-cpu-120-gpu-res

I have already ordered the main components of the watercooling parts, just finding better pricing on the rads. My first question is how many quick connects should I look into getting? I'm thinking just one, but are there added ease of using more? and where would you recommend they go?

2nd being the easiest way to bleed this system and what parts i should get? from what I have read the system has to be tipped on its back. Is there a better option? The RP 450 is rev 1.3 if that makes a difference.

I know many people on this forum have done a haf x water cooling build. I doubt the rx360 will allow 6 fans. If I can only fit 3 fans, should the fan be pushing the air out of the case, or pulling it in?

Once all the parts come into stock and I get the parts in I will take some pics!

Maybe go for one of the gigabyte boards the top end ones are all black, and the rad Q if you have enough fresh air be brought in to the case then pushing the so out the top would be the most effective way of cooling the rad.
