What fittings would I need to build in a loop drain in the system off the reservoir?
Yeah those. Though I'd recommend rotary compression fittings (https://www.frozencpu.com/products/1...l=g30c497s1358), which will allow you to move the tubing while it's it connected to the fitting. This will offer more flexibility, as when you're screwing the G1/4" thread into a socket, the tubing obviously moves with it. Tubing is always curved, as tubing is stored on a roll when they cut the right length for you. So the tubing always bends in a specific direction. With a regular compression fitting it might end up bending in the wrong direction, where when you need to go in a different direction it might become more likely to kink. With rotary fittings, you can just rotate the fitting until the tubing points in the right direction. Definitely worth it to me.

As for the Aquacomputer setup, you can go two ways with this:
1. Have a standalone reservoir (which is what you selected) > connect to pump top with tubing (e.g. Aquacomputer ULTITOP) + D5 pump (e.g. Aquacomputer D5 PWM or Aquacomputer D5 NEXT).
2. Have a pump-mounted reservoir (https://modmymods.com/aquacomputer-a...ing-34047.html) + reservoir pump top (https://modmymods.com/aquacomputer-a...top-41094.html) + D5 pump (e.g. Aquacomputer D5 PWM or Aquacomputer D5 NEXT).

Most people use pump-mounted reservoirs as it's easier to install, but there might be situations where you want a standalone reservoir and have the pump somewhere else.

If you want a drain, you'll want to get some sort of splitter, like a T-splitter and a ball valve. Just make sure the flow into the loop is off of the straight part of the T-splitter, and the ball valve is connected to the part of the T that's perpendicular to the rest of the flow. I currently have it backwards in my own loop (will fix it soon) which restricts the flow quite a bit.

I would guess each quantity buys 1 foot of these tubing? How much would I need for the average build?

The Aqualis Reservoir attaches to this Aqualis Pump-top, and D5 PWM pump also attaches to the Aqualis pump-top. Do you already know where you'll be mounting it? You'll also want a mounting bracket, either one for a 120mm fan mount, or a 140mm fan mount:

https://modmymods.com/aquacomputer-d...ket-41124.html
https://modmymods.com/aquacomputer-d...ket-41125.html

This will allow you to vertically mount the res+pump to the front on one of the fan mounting slots (or mount it directly onto a fan, or onto a radiator). Or if your case has a side mount location, it'll go there as well.

Get 10ft, that's enough for your average build. Maybe get a couple feet extra so you have extra. And when installing all of it, always cut your tubing slightly too long at first. You can always shorten it as you fit things. You can't lengthen it

My recommendation is to get slim rads, so 30mm thick rads, as they're easiest to work with. Thicker rads get you better thermal performance, but sometimes at the penalty of noise as fans may need to blow harder. All kinda depends on whether you want a silence focused build or maximum performance.

Here is a comprehensive round-up of many rads. It's a bit old, but rads haven't really changed that much: https://www.xtremerigs.net/2015/02/1...-round-2015/5/

A lot of people seem to think Hardware Labs makes very good rads. Their GTS line, a slim rad, performs very well for a slim rad. Just keep in mind that they're a bit wider than most rads, so be mindful of how things will fit in your case. If you were to get for example a 360mm rad (3x 120mm), the GTS is 133mm wide, whereas many other kinds are 120-125mm wide. That extra width can sometimes make the difference in whether it'll fit in your case or not. The GTS is also quite restrictive for a radiator so it'll have a negative impact on your flow rate. But shouldn't matter that much if you're getting a D5 pump which has plenty of power.

I myself have a Hardware Labs 360 GTS Crossflow (inlet and outlet ports on opposite ends on the rad), and have another Alphacool 480 on the way.

I am using the phantecks entho 719 (luxe) , So pretty big case and I am thinking of mounting the rad on top and have not decided on where to mount anything else. Do have spaces to mount on the floor as there is a bracket, The side plenty of spots to mount and in the front also fan slots to mount it from. Heck this case can hold two mother boards, one being a small mother board and I am only going to be using one mother board. So plenty of room.

Any chance any of these hardware I might find in white? Being the rad, the res/pump?

i gotta be honest - no, I can't source these things or answer these questions for you. its against my beliefs. some thought must be done by the end user, or nothing is learned. you're just following directions.
