I'm unsure of fittings and diameters of tubing and whatever else I may need after figuring those 2 out, let alone if what I have listed so far can work with one another...
I'm sure that @AlphaC
(posted above) can also provide much more detail. But in broad brushstrokes...
I opted for the Nickel coated version of the Heatkiller IV TR, in part to match other bits of the build, in part because I prefer Nickel coatings.
Overall, you probably should get your new case and do some rough lay-out drawings and measurements first as to where what goes and how it is mounted, and connected (tubing, wiring...). Also plan for 'drainage', i.e. a drain plug or valve at the lowest point of the whole water-cooling setup. One decision you have to make early is whether you want to work w/ rigid tubing, which is trickier and requires extra tools. If not, the 'standard' I use is Primochill LRT flex UV tubing w/ 1/2 inch inner and 3/4 inch outer diameter, available in various colours. I must have use kilometers of the stuff by now
, after decades of water-cooling various machines, and I never had an issue w/ those tubes....nor w/ MPC 655 Swiftech pumps, my go-to standard.
As to fittings, they obviously should work w/ the diameter of tubing you choose - also keep an eye on how many straight vs 90 degrees ('elbows') you need, per your drawing - and may be get a few extra for reserve. I use Swiftech and Koolance fittings and especially like the latter. Finally, you have to get some radiator fans...with a 360 rad, you're looking at either 3x 120mm (push) or 6x 120mm (push & pull - for a few C lower temps)...I leave the 'RGB question' to you (it's a personal thing
) but if you're noise sensitive while also trying to cool a monster like a 2990X, I suggest 'ML' (= magnetic levitation) type fans...I use Corsair ML 120 (non-RGB) a lot, unless the build goes into a server room where there's a box full of GentleTyphoons (not so quiet..), but noise control is hopeless in the server room anyway...
Then there's the question of cooling liquids...I prefer the most basic, usually clear liquid w/ anti-algae qualities and if possible 'non-conductive' to boot, and I mix that w/ pure distilled water (variety of schools of thought on that).
Good luck w/ your build, and may be post some pics when you're done
