Make sure you get fittings, hose clamps and Thermal paste, easy things to forget.

If your cpu doesn't come with a back plate, i recommend getting one, so you don't wrap you mobo

it doesn't really matter, depends on your taste, zip ties will do the same job 2 small ones or one bigger one.

i personally like fullcover blocks better, EK, XSPC, Danger Den, Koolance, all perform about the same, with a few degrees. But XSPC wins as it great value.

Overkill with pumps is a bad thing because they dump heat into your loop.

Actually since he is running this as 2 loops, he could just get 2 d4 pumps and be fine. They are on sale at Petra's currently too.....
re. heat dump. Running 2 loops, with one 655 each and one radiator each, I don't see how that would have caused him to have a larger heat dump from the pumps than the any single average loop. It was still only 1 pump per loop.
