A kill coil might be nice if you plan on using distilled water - i don't think i saw any coolant listed there tongue.gif

It all looks good except for the the gpu block. I wouldn't go with the nickel plated block because they have a tendency to corrode or cause corrosion on other parts when mixing different type of metals in one loop. I would save the money and go with just the plain copper block. Also you will need a kill coil if you are using distilled water or at least biocide.

Should be a nice loop. Use distilled water and get some PT nuke. Kill coil optional with that stuff. If you want the nickel block, but are worried about the corrosion, Use a buffer additive.

It's just a coil of silver. Silver is a natural biocide.

You need 2 fittings/ component. Your cart only seems to have two compressions so far. That shop doesn't seem to sell biocide or kill coils, this place has both and delivery costs aren't too bad : http://www.mayhems.co.uk/shop/
