Get on and start reading the stickies. Learn the material first especially since you will have to build it. Then customize the way you want to make it look nice. It is not too complicated and you will enjoy customizing it your self. You will be spending a lot on this; might as well be the way you like it.

When you're using barbs, you can help prevent leaks by using a tubing one-size down. So for example, if you have 1/2"OD barbs, buy 7/16"ID tubing. When you want to use it, dip the end in boiling water and pull it over the barb. When the tubing cools down. it is practically impossible to pull it off. I've used this to cool my 2xGTX295's and my CPU/mobo and i've never had a single leak related to a weak connection between the tubing and the barb (which, btw, is the area with the highest probability for leaks)

Get yourself a good bay res/pump and some 1/2 inch barbs. use 7 1/16 inch tubing and you'll be fine mate. The tubing will be hard to get onto the barbs but you can heat it up in your fingers to make it slide on. I have done this with every water cooling rig I have built and never had a leak .... EVER. Just take your time and you'll be fine. thumb.gif

You mean if you have 1/2" OD, you'd buy 3/8" ID? Right? Buying 7/16" would be bigger than the barb and be loose..

7/16" > 1/2"

this. there're no shortcuts here. watercooling isn't like just slapping on a heatsink. there are a lot more little things that need to be done and maintained in order to get it nice and keep it nice. i don't want to scare you, but you have to be realistic about these things.

do the research. you won't regret it when you know what you're doing as you plan it out, when you buy parts, put it together all together, and then make adjustments as you go and buy more parts. wink.gif

you CAN do a custom build on your first go, i did and i LOVE mine, but you have to put in the effort. you'll get out what you put in, i promise.

good luck!
