Also take a look at the Koolance CPU-370 block. It's a bit more expensive, but it's supposed to be the latest and greatest and supposedly it has a top-notch mounting system.

I guess i can use compression fitting: http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/bimabl7cofif1.html they are expensive though

Yeah, but if you only need 4 of them...

I know, I know... $15 more here, $20 more there, it starts adding up real quick. This place is such a bad influence .

Well the pump one cant be changed right? so i need 2 clamps there... Then the res comes with 2 but if im changing the other one i may have to change the res one as well..

So i need 6 right?

Yes, you're right
2 for the CPU block
2 for the res
2 for the radiator

and then 2 clamps for the pump

You could also switch to a bay reservoir. That would allow you to mount the pump directly to the reservoir and hide the whole unit in the 5.25" bays. It would also require two less fittings and no clamps. The one I linked is compatible with your pump.

There's also this one in the event you eventually decide to run dual loops to cool both your CPU and your GPU. I'm not sure if it's compatible with the 655 pump, though.

Finally, I and many many others would strongly advise against any dyes. Eventually dyes separate from the liquid and gunk up your system. Your UV tubing will be sufficient.

That second reservoir selected is for DDC pumps, not the D5 the OP selected. If you want a really nice D5 reservoir, then the Koolance bay version is nice, but pricey. It can take two D5s in series or parallel separate loops.

Possibly better still... let's see
you have $67 tied up in the MCP 655 and $56 tied up in a reservoir for a total of $123.

Another alternative would be the brand new MCP35X pump ($95) and Swiftech reservoir ($19) for a total of $114. Now you have a more efficient pump with PWM control and you save $9!
