I would like White tubing i found this on Scan
2m TFC White "Hot" UV Reactive Tube 3/8" ID - 1/2" OD : http://www.scan.co.uk/products/2m-tf...-3-8-id-1-2-od

Would you like to use high, medium or low rpm fans?

High: Black Ice GTX series rads, Medium: RX Series Rads, Low, Black Ice SR-1 series Rads.

Pump: MCP 355 w/ xspc pumptop or MCP 655 (doesn't really matter which one. both great)

Cpu Block: Koolance Cpu 370 or EK Supreme HF (Top blocks that aren't super restrictive like the kyros xt)

Fittings: 3/8id, 1/2od compression fittings by koolance or bitspower or 1/2 id barbs from anywhere (just make sure they're metal)

Fans: Yate loons (High, medium, or low speed). They're great and cheap as well. If you wanna go fancy any of the scythe gentle typhoons will work.

Pricing: $350- $550 with the parts mentioned below. All parts are interchangeable and compatible.

I would suggest the XSPC 750 RS/RX 360 kit (RX if your piggybacking it or RS if its going inside), excellent for beginners as it includes everything you need, you just need to add water (distilled water and PT-Nuke).

It's an excellent kit for its price, there's even a club for it.

http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...-rs-rx120.html


Note: If you're getting this, go with the white tubing and get 7/16" ID tubing, that way you don't need clamps since they fit pretty well over 1/2" barbs. Also the tubing that comes with the kit clouds after about 6 months (I replaced it with Tygon black tubing, which reminds me I need to upload photos of my updated rig...)

By the way, I recommend having a look for stuff here:

Watercooling UK

Great selection, great prices. I found everything there, except the long screws to mount the radiator to the top of my case (through case fans as I use a push/pull configuration). I got the screws from here:

Model Fixings

Go for the 6-32, 1 1/4 screws - they're the perfect dimensions for watercooling radiators and the perfect length to thread through 25mm thick fans and into the radiator.

The EK Supreme HF CPU water block is top dog at the moment and a 360 radiator will MORE than suffice for just a CPU. In fact, I have my highly overclocked CPU and graphics card on a single 360 radiator and temperatures are amazing, so yeah.

Not sure on the quality of the 360 radiator that comes with the kit, or the pump for that matter, though. Price-wise, a custom loop would run you down more but it's more than worth the investment. In the end it's kind of like a PC - buy a pre-built or custom build one?
Anyway, have a look at my setup (link is in my signature) - I listed all the components there and someone asked me the total price, which I gave. Remember that I went crazy with fans so that raised the cost!

actually temp wise it goes like this: Kyros .925 > kyros xt > cpu 370 > supreme hf and flow wise it goes supreme hf> cpu 370> kyros .925/xt. The block picked should depend completely on how restrictive the loop will be. The kyros .925 should be the best temp wise at it's price. Overall there is such little temp difference between them just pick one you think looks cool.
