^ This. Apologies for not paying enough attention - you're going to need more compression fittings, though IMO if it's your first time barbs might be better.

I would also recommend barbs for your first time. They're cheaper too.

Bakageta- Um...okay, I know I am new at this but whats a pumptop? Doesn't it come with one? And here is a list of things I plan to order. PLEASE change what ever is needed and what will be easy and work well together in my chassis, as you will for your own build.

Hcetech- Thanx, but I thought compresion fitting were a cleaner and safer option? Like leak proof? Or am I missing something?biggrin.gif

A pump top is something you buy to make your pump smaller and more compact, like changing its outer shell. It changes the position of the holes to allow for different fittings. And it looks better. smile.gif


Also, I've never had a leak with barbs and jubilee clips. Works just fine. It doesn't look as good as compression fittings but its a lot cheaper.

I certainly wouldn't say compressions are safer, you really can't get more secure than a traditional barb and hose clamp. Compressions are relatively safe, but they're mostly for "bling," something that I don't really care for, I'd go with barbs and save some money. As for a pump top, the pump has a top with barbs on it, but many people remove that and mount the pump in a reservoir that replaces the top, or replace the top with something aftermarket (like this) to give it a better look and allow them to use compression fittings. I'm not familiar with the D5 tops so I can't say if they add any performance, but the DDC pump tops definitely improve it. You can easily use a pair of hose clamps and use the pump as-is though.

(edit)
Going over your list now, give me a sec.

Not a fan of anything other than distilled water, personally. It's the best coolant you can use, and absolutely won't clog blocks. I've heard bad things about that particular tygon tubing, I personally use tygon norprene, but if you're after a certain color I'd get Primochill LRT in the color you want and run plain water.

Whoa there, that's um... that's a LOT of fittings. You have 18 fittings total, WAY more than needed. I'd want to see a picture of your setup to see if you need the 45's, but there's certainly no need to get this many. That's a lot of money for stuff you won't use.

6 stop plugs? 4 d-plugs? What are you planning on using these for? The 45's seem pointless if you already have 45 compression fittings listed above, and not sure where you're planning to use the 60's.

For fittings its generally 2 for every item.

2 for rad
2 for CPU waterblock
2 for pump
2 for res
2 for gpu waterblock

That's all you need (unless you git other stuff in the loop)

Do you need the 45 degree fittings? The tube is quite flexible and will probably fit.

Here is my "cart" I made in FrozenCPU. Please tell me if I need more fittings,or different ones,or other tubing, and where if possable some costs can educe. (But keep in mind I order more barbs and tube lenghts cause it's a @$%#@^#& to reorder and ship.
Thank you.

I'm new to water cooling but I have a few suggestions.

1. If you have the room go for RX or SR1 series radiator.

2. For the same price as your reservoir you can get a reservoir that will hold your pump to save room.

3. XSPC 1650 fans are just as good as Gentle Typhoon AP-15 and are already sleeved and half the price.

4. Go for EK or Koolance for the gpu block. If you go with EK you can get matching backplate.

5. Get Primochill LRT tubing much cheaper and awesome tubing with incredible bending ability.

6. Ditch the coolant and just get a silver coil or pt nuke and go to your local grocery or pharmacy and get distilled water.

Bakageta- haha,I only added all those fittings so you can choose what not to have, but I am allready looking for barbs now...there are just so many! lol
And thanx, I will rather use distilled water then, and I am looking for white tubing. But the good kind.
And what a bout the pump top thingy?

Sast- Thanx! I don't know about the 45degree fitting, I just added them all so you guys can remove what I don't need, or reconstruct completely. It's clear that I have very little knowledge of this hehe.
