Get a Laing D5 pump, and your gonna want a res!

Other than that it look good.

You can always mount the 240mm rad out of the case.

P.S: No dyes, just colored tubing.

I would go for just a 480 GTX radiator.


And as mentioned, go for coloured tubing without dyes. I think the MCP355 will be more than adequate, I believe it has more head pressure than the D5 pumps too, which will be beneficial if you decide on dual rads.

As for tubing size, you wont see much difference between 1/2" ID and 3/8" ID.
Always go for the thicker tube to help stop kinking, so 3/4 inch OD for 1/2" ID or 5/8 OD for 3/8" ID.

WatercoolingUK don't seem to have 3/8 / 5/8" tubing, so I would go for something from here: http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/cat/...m-Hose_89.html

Also, you will want a killcoil, this is the only place I know that is in stock of them atm however: http://www.chilledpc.co.uk/shop/prod...oducts_id=1196

Other than that, your loop looks awesome!
