Try to find an install somewhere of your case, and see if you like the layout. If theres any ONE thing not to cheap out on for w/c'ing, its the pump. My order of priority would be pump, rad/fans (considered one item), then block. Last thing, make sure pump is gravity fed from output on res for easy prime.

Sometimes it easier to build pump/res combo. MCP350 and 355s have tops and res tops.
I read about buying red tubes and using distilled water, proud of myself!

I've been reading in the nzxt phantom thread ill be needing to use 240 rad I believe. So writing that tidbit down for when the time comes! Definitely glad I searched a few threads about water cooling in the phantom biggrin.gif

If you are looking to do CPU and GPU, then I would get a tripple radiator (360) and make sure you get a case that will fit it in there without issue. If you are buying everything right from the beginning, then a little planning when choosing components will make it much easier to build then having to go back and retrofit stuff in later. A full tower case will most likely be you best bet. You have a lot more room to work in there and space to put your loop components inside the case.

From what I've been reading, gpu cooling may be a bit out of my league then. Because I would need to mod the case I have my heart dead set on if I use a 360 radiator. Though apparently a 240 works dandy with where everything is set up and such, do 240s work with gpu cooling or is it a 360 or nothing?

You would just be sacrificing some cooling, a little higher temps but of course it will work.

Do you plan to over clock? if you over clock I would high recommend the 360, if you aren't a 240 would do the job with some nice fans installed.

I am planning on over clocking a little, but nothing too aggressive. Not really going to be pushing limits or anything.

well that is good or water cooling is basically a waste if you aren't doing it to over clock or have a silent system.

If you have room for a 240 and a 120? you could run that configuration.

I am getting ready to block my board and CPU and I am adding a 120 to my loop that has a 360 on it currently.
Will go:
Pump/res > 360 > CPU > board > 120 > GPU1 > GPU2 > Res/Pump

You could do something similar:
Pump/res > 240 > CPU > 120 > GPU1 > Res/Pump

Starting off slow with OCing, new to the whole building computers. But by the time I'll actually be able to build (no way in hell am I doing it in a dorm room ) ill have researched for a year.

I'll look into that configuration and see if it would work!

You could get away with a 240. If you get a good 240 radiator, you can always add another 120 radiator where the rear fan goes, or wherever else it will fit. For a non-overclocked system, a single 240 in the loop with a GPU will be alright.

I'll be researching the parts to water cooling tonight most likely. I'm really excited to learn more about its parts and how it works! Hopefully I pick out some good parts

Like everyone said take your time with it...

A year ago I would have said I would never water cool... but now I am...

You just have to get over the whole pouring water inside a computer thing... leak test... make sure the loop is going the right way... etc... Acually I couldn't believe how easy it was... I've had my loop less than a week and I've already drained and refilled the loop... which was an accident since I put the rad after the cpu block...
