Help with my first water loop

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I've wanted to do water cooling for a while now but my income never permitted it, but I've saved up and can finally afford to do it biggrin.gif
I put a part list together and was hoping some people who know what there doing could go over it tongue.gif

And a few questions
Is distilled water and a killcoil all I need or should I add something extra?
Where would I put the killcoil? Just in any of the tubes?

All parts are from PC Case Gear in Australia.

Cheers ^_^

You only need one killcoil. Most people put it in the reservoir, just make sure the coil is shaped with the proper curve and a big enough radius so it won't get sucked into the pump intake or get lost down one of the tubes.

Otherwise it all looks ok to me... I don't see provisions for a fill or drain line however. There are a bunch of different strategies as to how to do it, what's your plan?
