1 - what radiator would you all suggest for 3 120mm Scythe gt (ap15's)
2 - what radiator shroud?
3 - what reservoir
4 - what pump?
And where would you order from?
I plan on adding 1 more 570 here soon. Another thing I am kind of lost on is tubeing lol. How do I know how much and waht to order for fitments?
1- RX360 or a 480
2 - Whichever appeals to you
3 - Whichever appeals to you, but to save space go for this - http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_318_665&products_id=3542
4 - This pump to fit into the res above - http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=20655
For tubing and fitting to keep things simple just get 7/16" ID tubing and 1/2" fittings.
7/16" ID Tubin - http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_413_292&products_id=23924
Fittings just make sure they are 1/2" - http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=59_346
As for how much I'd just get 6-8 feet in case you mess up and for trial and error. Now if you use compression fittings the tubing size and fitting size have to be the same.
As for where to order from I usually go with Performance-PC's since they tend to have cheaper prices than other places and I can order everything in one shot unless I'm really counting my pennies I'll place multiple orders from different places if it really ends up being cheaper.
Or you can make it super easy on yourself and get this kit - http://www.jab-tech.com/XSPC-Rasa-750-RX360-CPU-watercooling-kit-pr-4780.html
It comes with fittings and tubing, but most people replace the tubing so I'd get 7/16" ID tubing for the 1/2" fittings it comes with. Then buy the GPU blocks and fittings for those.
