I'd recommend sticking with distilled and some ptnuke/silver killcoil. My first loop had dye, and well, never again. If your starting out GPU only, I'd definitely add a drian plug of some sort, makes it easier to maintain/expand.

Hey whats up man. I just started WC too, but I went for the cpu loop instead of the gpu. I bought that XSPC Bay/Pump and the pump is leaking inside the res. Worst thing is its so easy to fix but I cant get to it. Im newb and all but stay away from it. Id say get a mcp655 for a pump. For a res Id say something that can bleed air out easy without shooting it back into the pump. Bitspower makes good ones.

Yes, im keeping my P180, setting the rad on top of the case, since i dont think a Rad/Shroud/Fan would be able to fit inside, and i dont move my case around too much

Yea, PT Nuke -PHN is what you want or a silver coil. Also.

1. Scythe GT fans are much better then slipstreams if you can afford them.

2. These would be a better choice for the pump.
