Im a former user of thermaltake watercooling products and all i can say is that all those products are toys.. it was a good option to get into watercoolibg world but now you have plenty options out there with a lot better performance and cost almost the same.. i bougth an xspc 360 kit which is great for the money.. also the corsair h100

Now i have a custom watercooling loop i build myself and i am happy

I rather go for 5/16 tubing instead of 1/2 tubing.. 1/2 is to fat for me. That pump reservoir bay is strong and one of the best. Radiator link is broken but for a single block (cpu block) a 240rad is plenty. (XSPC rad is thin and good quality) use destiled water and 2 drops of pt nuke. Is the wise - safe for begginers and also you will have great results

is ok only if you set a push-pull configuration.. and in this case that pump is overkill if you planning to keep this loop for a long time, but it would be worthy if you upgrade your case and decided to watercool more componets in the future..

I wouldn't use that radiator with that loop. The radiator is aluminum and the CPU block is copper. Mixing the two metals in the same loop will case galvanic corrosion and destroy the block and radiator.

And don't pay $10 for the distilled water either. You can get that at just about any grocery store for about $2

Yes, that will be much better. I was actually going to suggest that on in my previous post, but with you being down under I didn't know what shops and selection were available to you. That radiator will probably perform much better than the aluminum radiator as well.
For fans, looking at the selection on pc case gear, I'd recommend Corsair Air series Performance fans, Cougar Vortex, Scythe Gentle Typhoon, or Swiftech Helix. I use Gentle Typhoons and they are wonderful fans. They're always my first recommendation for radiator fans.
