Thread Starter 
hi im new to the water cooling world and was looking to go straight to building my own system. just wanted some advice on parts, compatibility, and what no little finiky things i dont know ive been doing my research just was looking for 2nd opinions thanks all

Shopping List-
pump- swiftech mcp655-b i know that if has 1/2 barbs and im looking at 3/8 tubing was just gonna stretch it over

cpu block- swiftech apogee gtz extreme and adapter plate for my amd processor from frozencpu.com

reservoir- xspc acrylic dual 5.25in for another loop down the road for gpu maybe

fittings- enzotech silver shining high flow 3/8 barb from sidewindercomputers.com not sure if they sell as a set yet if someone knows ty

radiator- black ice pro II mounted on top of my case most likely

fans- yate loon 120mm high speed fans 2

tubing and clamps- 3/8 uv blue dreamflex tubing kit dangerden.com

not sure if ill need a fan controller or not if anyone has any suggestions about that i already have 4 fans on the case so looked like a good option was looking at the nzxt sentry lx

open to any and all advice if theres anything that you think i could find cheaper or do cheaper for the same performance thanks all peace!

I would go for the vario version as its much easier to bleed. / And for the tubing 3/8 will stretch over if you boil it however 7/16 from primochill is my favorite. (Over 1/2" barbs of course)

I dont think there will be any performance difference there wasn't anything between 7/16 and 1/2 for me, And the seal with 7/16 and 1/2" barbs is amazing, I dont even use clamps, you have to get pliers and twist if off to brake the seal.

sounds good might just go with that it'd end up being cheaper anyways lol
and would a fan controller be a good addon after adding 2 more fans? or would that just be personal prefference
