Looks like a nice setup. The only thing I can recommend is, if you have the money, upgrade the cpu block to a Fuzion v1 or v2. Oh, and you might want to try out shin-etsu thermal paste, its supposed to be among the best right now. Also, you could try some high cfm 38mm thick fans instead. They might be a little louder, but you will get better temps.

I have read time and time again that you should use 38mm fans with rads due to their higher pressure.

I'm really liking this one.

Thanks. Which fans did you have in mind. The fans were the toughest thing to decide on. The reason I picked the Agopee over the V1 or V2 was I wanted to keep the price down being my first WC build. Another reason why I didnt use Feser 1 or any crazy UV additives, and also avoiding tygon tubing just to save some more cash. I hope a 240 GTX rad is enough for a CPU loop.

I like the Scythe's Ultra Kraze as they had the plugs I need. Other like the Panaflos.

He's on a budget though... For a cpu only loop, the 240 should work well.

QFT! Plus if he is cooling his sig rig this should be a good setup.

yea im on a budget. Right now i have a list for just under $300 from a total of 3 stores. 2 of which are in canada and 1 from the US. So should be fine. GPU cooling may happen later on but for now its just the CPU. Given that the 240GTX will hold up well enough I think im set.
