Hi guys Im just looking for advise on my first water cooling loop as of what would be the most optimal set up/tubing options

1. Firstly i want a separate res, How big should i get?

2. is it possible to mod the front to fit a 240Mm Rad?

3. Ive read to only use distilled water as to save your components from damage, is this true?

4. Im going for a quite build but i also want sufficient cooling , what type of pump should i be looking for?

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. once i get everything together ill be more then happy to do a complete build log

1. It does really matter.
Comes down to preference, I like the Pump/Res combos that go in the drive bay

2. Not without modding.
3.Yes, Just incase of leaks, Its less conductive. (EG. Split it all over one of my GTX 480s, Still works

) And get a sliver coil

4. And here are some pumps that should do the job

Swiftech MCP355 12V Pump
EK-DCP 4.0 12V DC Pump
Koolance PMP-450S 12/24V Water Pump
And there would be more

With you Dual GPU setup, I'd recomend EK Parallel/or Serial Bridge, Just makes everything look neat IMO

Also for you front RAD, PHYBOYA Did a 200MM Rad that will fit in the front are you drill some holes

I used it in my 600T watercooled build.
600T and the 650D basicly have the same internal layout

So if i was to go with 1x 240 Mm rad and 1x 200Mm Rad how big should the res be? 250, 350, 400 Ml?
Probs a dumb question, whats a silver Coil?

Never heard of that website but thank you very much for the suggestion
