From what you described everything sounds like it is there. Just remember to leak check before turning your system completely on I.E. use the paperclip method in the black and green cables on you PSU. With all watercooling double and triple check, make sure you flush out the pump, rad, and blocks before use.

Good Luck and enjoy.

what do I flush with? what do I run in the loop? I don't want (cant afford right now) the special stuff. isn't there some water I can get from the regular store? purified water or something like that? auto antifreeze?

Do not be afraid to use the search tool smile.gif
I say this because you always want to do your own research on things. Trust peoples info with a grain of salt, you don't want opposite results because you didn't do your homework. It will save you money and give you more knowledge!

I use distilled water to flush, usually does the trick to run the entire loop outside of the system like a small tiny loop.

I would run distilled water with a kill coil.
