Is there much difference in temps using push or push/pull with some good fans such as the Gentle Typhoon ap15's?

Thanks so far!
Yeah, Push/Pull is really not a huge gain over just push or pull. Also, distilled water at my grocery store is like 99c a gallon, so you might as well just stock up on it now. Also, you need more than just enough to fill up your loop (like a 1/2 gallon) as you need to clean your parts with distilled water and vinegar, or just distilled water, before you put it together. That'll help you reduce the likelihood of gross water. And, buy a silver killcoil, or PTnuke. (biocide)

Thanks for the informative answers, very helpfull for a water cooling newb like me

Though i am still not sure what to go for, as said i can spend around 220$ (200euro) I am looking at store here, located in Holland and made this list,

Different sites/different languages and usage of inches/centimeters are confusing me though by looking at fittings and tubing:

1x XSPC RS240 RASA Dual WaterCooling Kit
1x XSPC RS120 Black Radiator
2x 13MM (1/2) EK High Flow Fitting - G1/4
2 Meters of Feser Tube UV - HighFlow - 1/2 ID - 3/4 OD - WHITE
OR
DangerDen DD-TFC Tubing 3/8 ID - 5/8 OD - UV White

2 Liters of Thermochill EC6 Non Conductive Coolant (Corrosion protection and anti algae pre-mixed)

For a total price of around 220euro, not too bad i think! only thing i have to add later on is the GPU block as soon as i got my new GPU.

Could someone check if i summed up right here please? very much appreciated! Thank you.
