So, all I need is tubing and coolant

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So, here's the deal. I've bought a pump ($65), I acquired a GPU cooler (Maze 4 @ $40) and I have the first ever acrylic Stinger($72)... it looks beautiful. I am getting a Petra's Tech top for the pump ($33), and a radiator($41) (the other one they have is a little thicker, and that doesn't accommodate well to what i'm going to try to do).

Now i just need tubing and some kind of liquid to go inside. Tubing i plan on ordering this stuff (i also have to order some acrylic from these guys) but i don't know what to put in the loop. Any suggestions?

Your going to like your Stinger...You can just use 5-10% anti-freeze and distilled water...I like this fluid XP it's kind of expensive...It's non-conductive for a while, I really don't know how long though.It comes in other colors to...Fluid XP EXT Extreme Non-Conductive Coolant - UV Midnight Blue 32oz.

I have ordered the same exact tubing from that company, Grade A stuff right there. You won't be disappointed

For fluid, I'm going with http://www.dangerdenstore.com/produc...&cat=63&page=1

It's pretty green under UV as well.

Good luck

10 or 12 'ft should be plenty, but if you can afford it get 20', you will need it sooner or later....
