I have a fill port integrated into the case that will cap it.

It's a pass through kind of thing that has tread for a barb/compression fitting on one side, and the other a plug.

Here's a link Just a heads up though, compression fittings made up about 30% of the cost of my loop.

Nice!

I see they are pretty pricey, but I would only need about what two for the rad, two for the block and two for the pump right?

I just don't know if I like the t-clamps or zip ties holding together the tubing, I know plenty of people do it, but finish wise I might want something a bit cleaner. I could end up having a bit more money to play with hopefully.

The help and info so far is greatly appreciated

Well, stickley speaking, yes you would only need 6. However, everything I linked in the initial list of parts comes with normal barbs, if you go for compression you are talking about adding $13x6 = $78. And that is just for normal straight fittings. If you want 45° or 90° ones that can help eliminate large bends and excessive tubing, they very quickly add up at $15-19 each.

Lol Yeah i know, its only there because i used the double sided pad that came with the pump to mount it, but it came loose, and keeps vibrating against the edge of the brackets.... so i put some foam in there and zip tied it until i get another day off to fix it lol....i hate the zip tie....

Nah i think its 1/2". But yeah i thought the bigger the better right? if there is more water flowing, the better it cools?

The only thing i would suggest i doing the tube from the pump to the radiator better than mine, im really not happy with mine. It kinda twists funny... its not buckling, but yeah... just make sure u take your time on that part lol.... and put the res some where easy to get to... this case is DAMN heavy to lift and move and tilt when ur trying to empty it and tilt the bubbles out.
