rads- i vote for xspc, cheap but a very good performer (especially the EX series)
res- depends, if you have the money go with frozenq other wise you can buy nearly anything
pump-D5 or DDC hands down with a top preferably
blocks-EK makes the best i think, and yes comps are way better than barbs+bitspower or monsoon are the best for these.

To answer all your questions, there is a dedicated Watercooling section on OCN, most specifically I advise you to check this. thumb.gif

About the rads, the Alphacool all copper rads are great performers. You can get them in a variety of thicknesses from 30mm up to the 80mm Monsta Rad! the thicker rads also have 3 inlets and 3 outlets for max flexibility in routing your loop.

Also from what I hear, the tube reservoirs are the easiest for bleeding air out of the loop when filling.

For pumps the D5 pumps are made by Laing but are re-branded by pretty much everybody. The D5 or the DDC pumps seem to be the most popular pumps. I believe the DDC pump delivers a bit more performance.

As far as pump tops, again you have a wide selection of different styles and manufacturers. I like the dress-up kits that Bitspower makes for the D5 pumps. They cover up all the ugly and come in a variety of colors.

Compression fittings are the best. I really like the Bitspower fittings but from some recent reviews I'm intrigued by the Monsoon fittings. I believe the Monsoons come in a larger variety of colors too but I'm not sure.

As far as the coolant, Mayhems seems to have the best selection of colors and the highest quality.

I would definitely head over to the OCN Water Cooling section and do some research. Ask lots of questions. That's what we all live for here!!! biggrin.gif

Alphacool UT60 rads
Bitspower Res
D5 Pump
Durelene Tubing
Mayhem's Pastel.. Cooler of your Choosing
Bits Power Compression Fittings
There are so many Cpu and Gpu blocks out there that perform so close to each other, Unless your trying to win some Benchmarking Competition go with what looks best to you..
Fans.. Way too many to choose from

Color Scheme? Black and Yellow?

I looked at all that stuff today at frozen and performace pcs. Im assuming they are the two best for me. Performance pcs is pretty quick shipping since they are in florida.

I have the mobo, fans, video cards, etc.. I just need the watercooling supplies

Also as soon as I decide on a case, Im making a new thread/build log.
