other than tubing and fittings, that should be everything. The only decision left is to go with compression fittings or barbs

compression I prefer do you think I should go with a dual pump? like the one I chose but dual? They say something about offering one but no listing for it.

You don't really "need" dual pump in your situation. IMO, you would only really want to do it if you wanted to do a redundancy loop. If you don't need/want that, then save your money for some other upgrades/addons for your build. thumb.gif

I wouldn't worry about dual pumps. I ran dual mcp350 for a few months but went back to single d5 and saw no difference in flow or temps

Sounded like over kill to me 2 I only leave my PC on when I am at home so I really dont need redundancy. another dumb question do you have to keep in running 24-7 with water cooling? Ok what brand of hoses I would prefer orange hose through dye or uv going for Tron theme here I have the gigabyte up-7 that is black and orange. SO this is what I have so far

I am at 320.97 OUT OFF 450.00-500.00
I STILL NEED HOSE WHAT SIZE ?
Compression fittings what size ? Prefer Bitspower or Monsoon
what do I USE TO SCREW IN TO THE PUMP/RES AND THE RAD?
Liquid do I GO UV TO GET ORANGE WITH PLAIN CLEAR HOSE DYE TO COLOR THE LIQUID ?

You do not have to run 24/7 when WC'ing. As for size of hoses/fittings, I personally always go with fittings that are G 1/4" for the input and 3/8" for the hose side. That being said, many sizes seem to work OK. I am actually going to be using 1/2" ID this time around. As far as tubing brands, I have heard good things about both Durelene and Tygon. Masterkleer seems to be the most clear of many of the brands, but also clouds up a LOT faster requiring more maintenance. I don't usually use UV tubing though, just clear or regular solid white, so I can't comment on what the best UV tubing would be. Hopefully someone else can chime in that has experience with that (*cough* morencyam *cough* biggrin.gif).

That is the shopping cart. I am really hung up on compression fittings bitspower is fine but it asked what fittings to include on the rad and the waterblock but on the pump it does not really tell me what size of hose the inlet and outlet takes. If somebody could please open that cart and ad the necessary fittings to complete this dam thing. I feel bad wasting anymore of your guys time both of you have far exceeded my expectations. I feel have retarded putting all of this together. Just keep it under 500.00 and we are golden but prefer 450.00. I have the dual drive bay empty for the res/pump and the rad should fit in the top of the case with out to many problems. Thanks for everything again I WILL REP YOU BOTH.. edit Half inch hose is fine.

Just expanding my loop myself, i own the thermaltake 760 big block, luv it to begin and cool my cpu while learning about it all.

Suggestion ADD A DRAIN VALVE AT THE LOWEST POINT IN YOUR LOOP
Reason is this; you are going to expand shortly and to drain any watercooling loop is a huge pain in the arse.
-Easiest way to go about this is to put a T block in your hose with wither a plug in the 3rd hole or do what i did and add a bitpower ball valve via a male to male fitting. that way you can add a spare fitting to it and hose it than the other end of the hose can be into a container lower than the loop itself, then simply crack open the ball valve and watch it drain.

Compression fitting is what i suggest if you are going to be moving the case a lot. although a decent clamp on a barb fitting may work too, just not no spring clip.

Hose size, 3/8"id 1/2"OD is my preference. Reason is because any hose size bigger won't change the pressure load on the pump in my logic as the pressure is already applied with the first smallest hole.

For a case on the move, KEEP ALL WATERCOOLING PARTS INTERNAL, with logic and from being told, all majority of the leaks come from external loops. Logic be told, the external part can move or be damaged from anything going on around the case. With you moving all the time the chances of that res breaking off the back is high.

Easiest ORANGE. Clear hose and Orange fill coolant.

Fan issue abit, not that the corsair wont pull air, but against the rad they wont pull much in my opinion. either do a push pull with the fans or bump up to the corsair force and pull with them.
-on a side note, i have not tested my theory but a fan pushin air threw a rad will work better than pulling. when thinking about it a fan pushing can suck air from all around using a cyclone, aka underneath and sides (underneath but be side if that makes sense at all); BUT pulling, it has to suck from directly below it threw the rad kind of limiting its potential as the rad stops the fans cyclone, as it is squar underneath the fan not round.
--debate welcome, might even start a theroy thread on it.

Essentials out of that mumble jumble

DRAIN VALVE - INTERNAL ONLY - 3/8id 1/2od - Clear hose, orange coolant - Possible fan change
