Stick around on these forums for about 2 weeks before you order anything. Setting up isn't hard but if this is your first go at it I would start with a Kit. I prefer the EK kits but Rasa (XSPC) also makes a nice kit to start with and is cheaper.

Read everything you can in this forum and ask questions and watch videos. Its the only way to learn.

Youtube has some videos of people setting up watercooling loops.

Basic check list

1. Read the forums and take in information until you can identify the following.

Pump, Res, Rad, CPU block, GPU block, barbs, compression fittings, Push pull setup, tubing sizes

2. Understand the basic functions and order of a loop.

PUMp > Rad > Block >Res > back to pump

3. Get a good idea of how you want to setup the loop inside your case

Top or bottom mounted rad, where you want the pump to go, Bay/Res pump vs. Stand alone pump. Get a good idea of your case size and do some drafting and post on here to bounce ideas off the community.

4. Plan out your parts list or pre-made kit and post on here for advise and planning.

5. Learn how to install, bleed, leak test, and pre-test all equipment before installation.

Those are just the basics to start with but until you can understand that I wouldn't recommend ordering anything.

Just jumping into watercooling can cause some expensive mistakes.

No, custom kits can be better performing AND cheaper.

hm.. H50 is like 40-60$ here. Maybe some other items are cheaper over there but I am not able to build a entire loop in that range.

I think the best thing will be to take a picture of my case and the hardware in there so you guys could tell me what to order and how to plan it for the best way... no?

A picture would help. Not familiar with you case and what rads will fit internally.

Are you against external Rad mounting off of the back of your case?

Also what are you trying to water cool and what is your budget?
