That res seems like overkill. I like it.

If they're charging you more than .99 for each liter of distilled water, then skip it. You can buy it at any drugstore.

If you're buying a radiator to hang off the back of a computer, you could do better than the GT Stealth. If you're mounting it internally into a cramped space, it's a good radiator.

Awesome thats what I like to here
Well ive already bought the pump but i wanted confirmation on the other parts before i bought just to be safe. Think i could get my cpu higher than 4.0ghz with this set up?

The radiator is going internally at the top of my case with a push/pull set up (havnt decided on the fans yet) and thanks for the distilled water tip save me some money lol.....and I just wanted to fill the entire top of the case with a radiator cause i have the room so it may be overkill but aesthetically ill be happy

Get distilled water from your local supermarket. I'm sure it will be give more water and cost less than that feser fluid. Everything else looks good.

Should i mount the res higher than all the other parts? I was thinking of drilling a hole in the top of my case for the fill port and then using a T-line at the lowest point in my loop for drainage....any problems with that?

Nope, that's perfect. The reservoir only needs to be higher than the pump, unless you use a bay reservoir that integrates the pump, then that's pretty much how it's supposed to work.

I love these kind of threads. I learn so much about "what to get" for my future water cooled setup. I had many of the same parts listed in mind from my research.
