Questions before I take the plunge

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am thinking about taking the water cooling plunge and was looking at getting a kit to get me started. The kit I am looking at is this:
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/21642/ex-wat-276/XSPC_Raystorm_AX360_Universal_CPU_Water_Cooling_Kit_w_D5_Photon_and_Free_Dead-Water.html

I wanted a reservoir that wasn't in the drive bay, so this one grabbed my attention. Now for some questions.

1. I noticed that the tube size that comes with this kit seems to be sort of out of the norm. Is that ok?
2. I want to cool my CPU and GPU. Will a 3x120mm radiator like this be alright? I want to overclock both, but not to the extreme.
3. I also want to get this for my 290 GPU - http://www.frozencpu.com/products/21972/ex-blc-1575/Koolance_VID-AR290X_Radeon_VGA_Liquid_Cooling_Block_No_Fittings.html. Is this a good choice?

Any tips/recommendations? This is going in a 750D.

my personal opinion, not enough rad space. i would use a 360 for the 290(x) alone. ive read they run VERY hot.
