Nice choice of blocks. First things first, you'll need tubing, fittings pump to pump the water and a res to hold the water and a radiator to cool the water.

With a CPU and GPU you can get away with maybe a full 60mm 240 radiator or a thing/thick 360 radiator.

Radiator, Or this

For starters id probably suggest this Res/Pump. Its easy and straight forward.

Now you just need to choose your tubing and fittings this is completely down to you, ill show you for example.

Fittings
Tubing

See how the fitting sizes and tubing sizes are the same? its very important the sizes match. This is common sense.

Hope i got you started thumb.gif

i can personally back up the xspc 750 res/pump combo comment. i am currently been using it, with no issues whatsoever.

there are some great videos from dazmode on water cooling here => http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLC6EA48744A9A954D&feature=plcp , and those really helped me out when i was still looking around.

as far as fittings and such go, compression fittings will make your life alot easier, but barbs still work just fine (just make sure you get some clamps that fit the outer diameter of your tubing).

as far as tubing diameter goes you pretty much have 1/2", and 3/8". the difference in performance between sizes is so small that it really doesn't matter, so instead of basing tubing choice off of what you think you should get for performance, look instead for a tube variety that you like the size and looks of, that has good reviews concerning any issues people have had with it (if there have been any that is), and that fits the fittings you choose. the last thing about the tubing is that wall thickness affects how flexible the tubing can be, as well as if it will kink when at a specific angle (although supposedly this process http://www.bit-tech.net/modding/guides/2010/02/28/how-to-make-your-own-watercooling-reservoir/6 to form the tubing works quite well for sharp turns, but i havent tried it personally).

as far as the blocks you have already chosen go, they should be fine, just make sure you get everything you need for your gpu (specifically, the ramsinks needed for your gpu's ram, these for example = http://www.frozencpu.com/products/7191/vid-106/Enzotech_BCC9_Memory_Ramsinks_-_8_Pack_BMR-C1L.html , however i would look around for reviews and such to be sure).

as far as rad goes, i agree with what some other posters have said, that being that a 240mm rad minimum, but a 360mm rad preferred are good options. i would personally go with a thicker rad with lower rpm fans than a thinner rad with higher rpm fans, but that all depends on what you can fit in your case.

as far as fans go, those should really depend on what you need to effectively cool the radiator you ultimately choose, but here are some of my suggestions for fan choices : Yate loon mediums (pretty popular around here, good rpm/cfm, cheap), Scythe silent typhoons (the 1850 rpm or 1450 rpm), GELID wing 12's, and xigmatech fans fitting your preferences. but there is pretty much an endless variety of fans to choose from, so once again its worthwhile to do some research.

well, sorry for the looooong post, but there is my 2C, happy hunting biggrin.gif . tell us all how the build works out when it is completed thumb.gif

I would buy a full coverage GPU Waterblock, looks much better, than a universal block and ram heatsinks.
