I will buy water and fans here at Israel.
I decided to order from frozencpu because the over price is cheaper.

That's is all i will need for a CPU and GPU loop, right?


And another thing, what maintenance a water cool system needs?
How to prevent leaks?
If there is a leak, anyway to spot is before it ruin the entire PC ?
What the manufacturer policy if such thing happens?


Thanks
Good morning

maintenance = every 6 months you clean out your blocks and check to see if your tubing is not getting hard to bend if it is replace it flush the rad and put it all back in service
How to prevent leaks?= Make sure you cut your tubing square and push it all the way on the barbs, Put barbs hand tight then turn them 1/4 round with a wrench DO NOT over tighten them you will cut the oring. Do this you should have no leaks
If there is a leak, anyway to spot is before it ruin the entire PC ?= When you first put your system together unplug everything from your psu but the pump. Then take the 20 or 24 pin connecter jump the green wire to any black wire with a paper clip this will let your psu run the pump. I put paper towels under all my blocks and barbs let it run like this for 12 hours and look for and leak. If after this time no leaks your good to go.
What the manufacturer policy if such thing happens?= Your screwed

Lol I used a pan removed the tubing on the lowest part of the system but a double a battery on one tube (it fits just right) and drained it that way
Dont worry every one is scared the first time they set up a watercooling system lol

Yup, thats the way to do it. Taking you're time is the main thing, If you rush something will go wrong.

Also you might want to get some rotary fittings for the lowest point in the loop so that you can undo the barbed fitting to drain, 7/16 is nearly impossible to pull of barbs (you'll end up pulling the pc over!), then you don't wreak the tube.

yea, Maintenance is KEY. My temp were starting to creep up on my cpu and gpus and flow was going down...I was like WTH! I knew the GPU blocks were less than two weeks old they were good. I took apart my EK CPU block and BAM! in the diffusser plate were all these litter fibers clogging it up...I dont even know how water got through there. SO yea, clean those block and rads on the regular. Go to you local electronics store and buy the biggest bundle pack of canned air you can. I go through that stuff like crazy....its well worth it though.

You mean something like that:

That will be connected this way:

It used so i won't turn and break the tubing along with the barb i'm disconnecting.
Did i get it right?
