Hi guys,

This is my first forray into Water Cooling after many years of wanting to get into it. I've done alot of research, but wanted to make sure my cart looks good before I hit the purchase button

I already have received the rads and tubing as a gift, so I am just looking to finish off my setup.



Money isn't an issue, though I would like the best bang for the buck. I already have a ton of high speed YL fans I plan on setting up in a push-pull config.




Please let me know your thoughts!

You may need additional tubing. I don't think 5 feet will be enough (purchase an additional 3-4 feet of tubing), after testing for leaks and such. As for the rest of your loop, it looks good.

Looks really good but 5 feet is going to be a bit tight on routing. I usually go 10 feet for a new build and have around 2 left over. Tube is cheap.

Alright, I'll go ahead and order another 5 feet than. Better to have too much than not enough.

Do you guys suggest cleaning the blocks and rads with something prior to installation?

YES! A thousand times yes!

Be sure to flush out your radiator as much as you can stand doing it and then flush it out one more time. Most people recommend some distilled water and vinegar which should do the trick. I like to heat the water as it seems to break up some of the flux and other crap inside the rad.

As for the blocks, you can if you want. I've always checked to see if new blocks look good and then slapped them in.

Yes, flush them with tap water to get out any solder and other gunk then rinse with distiller. Put the loop together and fill with distilled. All good.

For those compression fittings a tip I give is get some mechanix gloves or similar with grippy fingers. Saves you fingers from the rub and you get tighter fittings

Great! Thanks for the advice guys. I'll be sure to post some pics once I start this fun project, my MM case is supposed to be coming in on Saturday (yay!), and hopefully I'll get the rest of my parts by next weeked so I can throw this bad boy together.
