So I have a few things picked out already, going for a CPU only loop right now.

Radiator - Swiftech MCR32
Reservoir - Swiftech MCRES-MICRO
Pump - Swiftech MCP350
Fans - Yate Loon High Speed (I'm supposed to use 120MM right?)
Block - I have no idea! I can't find any 1156 blocks!

What else do I need? Tubing? Compression fittings? Whatever those are?

And I'm probably moving to a HAF 932.

Thermal paste : OCZ Freeze or IC Diamond

Coolant: distilled water and 2 drops of pt nuke

one is for just distilled other is used with U/v dye

Is it bad to use AS5?
Which res should I use? Any of those will be fine? And I'm still confused on how to do the tubing, are there guides on that? Do I just cut them up?

And I'm still confused. when do I need to use those fittings and stuff? What else do I have to do?

The MicroRES is perfect. AS5 is not bad at all if you already have it. There are better pastes, though, I just edited my above post again with recommendations. For tubing, like Juggalo usually says, go in this order: reservoir > pump > radiator > water block(s) > reservoir. I recommend 10-15 feet of tubing, you can never have too much; cut it as needed, you can use a normal pair of scissors, though you can order tube cutters if you feel more comfortable doing that; however I'm not sure if there's a guide on tubing in general.

I recommended thermal paste
i recommended reses. how much you want to pay for one is up to you

Well you do have to wait for a 200hr burn in time
Versus IC Diamond is only an hr
OCZ Freeze none
MX-3 none

There's no reason to downplay it, honestly, and especially no reason to demean it to that level. It's capacitive and requires more burn-in time than modern pastes, but that's the only reason to really bash it, and it's not much of a good reason.

Modern pastes claim no burn-in time, but you still need between 20 and 90 hours before it performs its best.

Yeah, you claim it sucks all you want, I'm not going to argue if you're going to be this stubborn about it. I explained everything, so leave it.

So I have this planned out:

XSPC RC360 Radiator
Swiftech MCP655 Pump
Swiftech MCRES-MICRO Reservoir
Enzotech SCW-REV.A CPU Waterblock
Yate Loon 120MM High Speed Fans
Sunbeam Rheobus Fan Controller
and I need tubing and coolant?

So what is that indigo xtreme? looks good. I'll probably end up getting the freeze.

How am i being stubborn? I know all about AS5 i have tested it many times under many conditions, you have probably only used it once on your heatsink.

@JDM, do not get coolant that crap is a waste just get two jugs of distilled water and some PT nuke and you will be fine.

Run distilled water through Tygon Silver or similar, that will be perfect.

It's a new kind of TIM with a sort of alien application method. Expensive and you only get 2 applications with only marginally better performance than Shin Etsu X23, so stick to normal paste. Recommendations in my first post.

You're calling it crap for bad reasons, and you refuse to stop. That's not the purpose of the topic, so just leave it.

indigo extreme is good but expensive. 20 bucks for like one or 2 application I think

I recommended tubing and coolant already

Well, you have 2 choices; Tygon Silver has silver in the tubing itself, eliminating the need for a silver coil or PT Nuke, or you can run plain Tygon or Masterkleer (latter recommended as it's just as good but much cheaper) with a silver coil or PT Nuke. Either option will work.

There's a 3 degree difference between that and Shin Etsu before cure time, and a 2 degree difference after, it's almost within the margin of error. I'd say it's a bad reason.

you can use a coil of silver or pt nuke for a biocide

Well i don't think you need silver or whatever as long as all of your metals in the loop are the same metals like all copper. I only have pt nuke in my loop and i don't see any signs of corrosion.

It's not for anti-corrosion, it's to prevent algae growth. Both serve that purpose perfectly.
