You can get going with the kit, some distilled water and a silver coil. That's all you need, the kit comes with two fans anyway although you may want to replace them at some point.

Some people also add something like PT nuke to their loop to help keep nasties from growing but others are happy with distilled+coil only.

You may also want to replace the XSPC tubing. There's really nothing wrong with what comes with it but it may discolor over time. Primochill seems to be the consensus choice for replacement.

Tools wise you won't need any thing more than what you already have for building your PC, a phillips screwdriver. Some decent scissors to cut the tubing perhaps.

The kill coil prevents algae and bacterial growth just as well as PT_Nuke does, no need to have both. If you do want to replace the tubing you want to get:

10 feet of Primoflex 7/16" Id 5/8" OD - color of your choice

Yep. If you buy 10 feet, you can rebuild your loop a few times without having to get new tubing. I like to always have some tubing laying around so that if you get a new GPU block or something and you forgot to order tubing you don't have to wait painfully for it to arrive.

Well for starters wouldn't a non conductive liquid be a better choice over water due to the possibly of a leak? And how big a difference is distilled over that non conductive stuff

I don't have a ton of experience with WCin myself, but they each have their pros and cons:

Distilled water:
Pros:
-better performance
-flows easier
-cheap

Cons:
-mostly conducts electricity
-needs killcoil or PTNuke

WCin Fluid:
Pros:
-Emits UV when UV light is on it
-Non-conductive
-Algae and other bacteria and germs are less likely to grow than distilled water

Cons:
-Expensive
-(Supposedly) can cause erroding and corrosion of tubing

Someone with more WCin experience please correct me if anything I said is wrong smile.gif.

Distilled water is only slightly conductive, and it's cheap. That's probably the main reason it's used so widely. Your loop is unlikely to leak if you test it properly, use tight fitting tubing, and use clamps to secure the tubing in place.

Distilled is as good as the pre-mixed fluids in relation to temperature (sometimes it's better), since it's pure it doesn't have anything that could fall out of the solution and clog components. (For instance most dyes)
