In that case, I'd just want the longest lasting. So perhaps clear would be the way to go, with UV tubing?

You only use one or two drops of biocide, it won't tint the loop.

You are probably unaware of this, but there was a group buy for gentle typhoons here two or so years ago that ended up being an epic fiasco. So much so that OCN management decided to never support another official group buy again. I know you only mentioned that in jest, but I couldn't help flinching when I read that tongue.gif

Thick rads only really give you a performance benefit if you crank up your fan speed, so go with something thinner if noise will be an issue for you.

Who says it would be a group buy? I could simply be the consumer reseller.. ;c) Thanks for the heads up on that, sounds like it was fun...

As for fan speed/noise.. I actually thought that thicker rads cooled better at lower fan speeds.. Perhaps I read that wrong... Thanks for the input.

Ok, so is all I have listed enough to build the loop? Or am I missing anything? Should I change anything?

Now I see no radiator lol otherwise you're good. Is you want to save a little money you can get angled adapters instead of angled compression fittings. Xspc makes some that would match the finish off the straight compression fittings, but I think they're kind of bulky looking. Ek makes some, nice ones too

Oh man... I was looking for the UT60, then I guess I forgot to add it.. I'll do that when I'm back at the office.. Is the blue stuff I got also a biocide? Or is that different?
post #17 of 48
Yes, that concentrate contains a biocide already

You are missing your reservoir. smile.gif

And personally for the pump I would go with the XSPC D5 Vario Pump Without Front Cover. It's the same as your MCP655, but cheaper because it doesn't include a top. Then you can pair it with a nice integrated pump top & res. XSPC makes a nice square acrylic D5 top/res, or you can get the tube kinds from XSPC, Bitspower, or EK. You can buy the pump/top/res all as one package too.

He doesn't need a reservoir if he is using a t-line
