Yea I know you meant that. I've seen things like that for € 10-15 on my retailers website (a bit much imho) . Just added the 'not buy a copper tube cutter' -part so he wouldn't go into a DIY and come out with a copper tube cutter. (Because that's what they'll probably sell you if you don't say it's for plastic tubing. A lot of people never heard of watercooling a PC I've found out. We're so underground ^^ )
Sorry for the confusion tongue.gif

EDIT: This is what they would probably give you and NOT what you want wink.gif

Don't forget a funnel for filling the res

Most of the stuff is included. You don't need a tubing cutter, just use sharp scissors or a sharp knife. I cut my 5/8" tubes on a cutting board with a knife. When done carefully the edges will not be jagged.

Disposable blade utility knives are the best style of knife for cutting tubing. Just put a fresh blade in and it cuts real nice.

Your probably going to want some spare distilled water to rinse out your parts prior to going into the loop too.

Ahh you need only hand tighten this stuff smile.gif

I know, but I slightly stripped the top port in my res while tightening the compression ring, the G1/4" was turning in the acrylic. frown.gif When I noticed, the threads were crossed such that a bolt with double the threads per inch of the G1/4" fits the top port of the res perfectly now lol. It still seals properly though, I just hold the G1/4" bit still with pliers while I tighten the comp. ring by hand, I don't want to risk overtightening the thread again wink.gif

There is no real special tools needed to install watercooling parts. From my experience your hands, a screwdriver, and a pair of scissors is all you will need to cut the tubing and install the other pieces of hardware. Unless of course you plan to mod. If you plan to mod you might need a rivet gun, a dremel, and other cutting / drilling equipment.

A spare power supply although not essential is useful for filling and bleeding the loop. I use one of these Phobya 90W PSU
