You'll need:

A CPU block
A GPU block
A pump
A reservoir
A few meters of tubing
And the necessary fittings for everything.

I'd suggest looking into a kit for a first time water cooler, they take the headache out of everything and are very easy to install even if you have no experience with a loop. Hit up Alphacool's website, they have some great kits there and aren't terribly expensive. You can expand them to include your graphics card too, though you'll need an additional GPU block to include your card.

For a decent starter set, you can get one of the pre-configured XSPC kits, they have good components and are reasonably priced.

Thanks, what would be optimal, a res and pump or a combo?

Really depends on your preference. I think a pump and res gives more flexibility and is a little easier to work with, but they tend to be a little more expensive.

Something like this kit, and then add a GPU block for your card and two additional fittings, would be a good start. Or you can just build up your own custom kit - tends to be more expensive, but you get to choose all your own components.

Edit: I guess I should be more clear - there are pump/res combos that go in the drive bay (bay res/pump) and then there are pump/res combos that go somewhere else in the case. I'm talking about the second of those, but there is also the option of getting a pump and a completely separate res that would be connected to the pump by tubing, instead of being an integral unit.

the best bang for your buck kit would probably be an xspc set up bought off of either frozen CPU.com Performance pcs.com the xspc kit comes with everythig you need and it is one of the only full kids that give you all of the it's necessary for water cooling and allows you to use the parts Within the kit with other parts of your choice to further customize and make your build unique. Ek makes a kit too which would be better but the xspc is cheaper and still good quality.

Thank you so much you wouldn't believe the work I've done to this and still barely scratching the surface, every millimeter has been covered for the two 420rads look like they were built for this, I've had to mod literally every aspect of the build so far and so much more to come

Delidding, acrylic tube, monsoons hard line gold fittings, and for the next question:

The site seems outdated and they don't have any blocks listed for my socket.

Wow that's embarrassing, I linked the old one.

This is the one you want. I'd also recommend that you buy their kits off the sites others have listed above, such as performance-pcs.

Im still confused on these different types of res, pumps, radiator sizes, fittings and tubing type, block type, let alone I don't even know what can fit into my case.

Do I need one radiator for both the cpu and gpu or more? Who makes the best blocks? I really want the best performance possible within what my case can hold to the brim.

Just making sure smile.gif. Can't wait to see this all fitted out, what are you using for tube and coolant?

What case do you have? Ideally for a CPU and GPU you'd want 360mm of radiator space (or more), either a single 360 or a 240 and 120 (depending on what your case would allow). But it's fine to have just a single radiator, you don't need separate ones for each component.

How much were you looking to spend? The XSPC Raystorm block (the one in the kit) is one of the better ones but for the most part they are all going to be in the same ballpark. Same goes for radiators, for a given size/thickness the difference between brands is generally pretty small (except for a few specific cases, like ones with really high fin density).
