Reservoir kit

Pump top

Dress up kit

Pump


You can also the res in 250mm length and different colors. They are running a special at ppcs on fully modded uber 655 pumps. The wires are sleeved and the dress kit is on with a pump top. Check out the prices and see which way is less expensive. There are dozens of combinations that you can try. This is just a Bitspower combo that I like. There are plenty of options for reservoirs and pump tops. Just be sure to read which parts they are compatible with in the description.

If my pump won't be seen, would a dress up kit be a waste? I guess if I was doing a pump and res kit together?

Honestly, that is a question only you can really answer. If it bothers you whether it is "dressed up" or not, whether or not it is out of sight, is something you have to ask yourself. smile.gif However, if you are looking for opinions, I would still do it myself in a M8, because I would have a window on that side still.

So maybe the res and pump kit.

I guess I was just thinking most people do the pump out of sight if possible for noise?

Seems like it might be easier to do a res/ pump in one. Maybe hiding the wires might not be too bad.

This pc will be a everyday gaming rig. Is there any upkeep/maintenance I should know about water cooling?

For custom loops yes, its not that often, but you should usually replace the coolant and flush the rads and blocks.
