You don't have to apologize for asking questions, people on OCN love to help. thumb.gif I am by no means a water cooling guru, but I tend to prefer XSPC for blocks (Raystorm CPU and Razor GPU blocks match fairly well by the way, since you mentioned matching colors), Bitspower for fittings/reservoirs (Although Monsoon makes some outstanding quality fittings), Swiftech MCP655 for pump and as far as radiators, I kind of like XSPC and Alphacool somewhat equally. As far as one pump pushing 2 360 radiators, as far as I know any solid D5 or DDC should be able to run 2 360's quite effectively. Most people that use 2 pumps that I have seen do it either because they have an extreme amount of radiators or for redundancy reasons. Keep looking for more people with more experience than me to chime in though, and keep asking questions if you have them. Good luck! thumb.gif

XSPC, EK, and Koolance make some really nice bay reservoirs that incorporate a pump. Or there are aftermarket tops that incorporate the pump with a tube res. Rad, 240mm would be good for CPU only, but if you plan on cooling the gpu in the future I would go with at least 360mm. That can be a single 240 plus another 120 added later, or just a single 360, really doesn't make much of a difference. The XSPC EX series rads are a great price to performance ratio.
Just a few ideas

Are you asking if you can mount the reservoir outside of the case? Part wise though, it looks fine to me. Most of those parts are what I am using in my current build that I am working on. biggrin.gif

Now how do Ifigure best hose size and how many compression fittings I need I would rather have to many than not enough. would I also need a fan controller I already have 2 corsair sp 120 quiet editions Would they be a good choice and just add one more?

You would just add up how many you need per component. So, 2 for each rad, 2 for each pump, 2 for the res and 2 for cpu block. So in your case, you are using 2 rads, 1 cpu block, 1 res and 1 pump. Basically, you need a fitting for each input and output on each component at a minimum, depending on what you are trying to accomplish. If you want to get fancy, there are all sorts of other fittings you could use for other purposes. QDC's, stop plugs, T fittings, screw in temp/flow sensors...the list goes on, and I don't even know all of them.

2 Rads=4
1 Res=2
1 Pump=2
1 CPU Block=2

Total=10

This is excluding any extras/etc (Drains/QDC/Fill ports/stop plugs/etc).

As for the fan controller debate, that seems to be an object of preference. Some people use them, some people don't. I myself actually use them, but you do not "have" to, as long as you have enough hookups for your fans without 1. There are PCB Fan Hubs you can use to simply power them all directly from your PSU. Go to this link to check them out if you want: Fan Hubs (I use these in conjunction with my fan controller).

I am not so sure on the radiator choice, as I have never used a crossflow rad. I would wait for someone who knows about that topic to chime in. If memory serves me right, I have not read anything good about them (but don't quote me tongue.gif) The other 3 parts are great choices!

I'd go with the swiftech dual bay over the koolance one. It would definitely handle your needs plus future upgrades. The 35x is one of the best pumps on the market
Edit: missed all the new posts. Stupid cell phone. Tube size is personal preference basically. It makes no difference on flow rate or temperatures.

Can you recomend a good 360 rad
post #20 of 67
the non crossflow EX360 would work just fine http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/xsextr12ra.html
EDIT: FYI, sidewinders has that bitspower res a bit cheaper http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/biwataz250po.html
I figured you'd want to try to order everything from the same place so you only have to pay shipping once
