Aside from the rad, all components have their fittings - the correct size? Just double-check. Also, the Swiftech pump has 7/16" fittings. 1/2" tubing will work, but it's a pain to install. Make sure you boil water and dip the hose ends for 30 seconds before installing them.
For the price, you have a very nice set-up!
PS. What will you be using to cool the NB?
I'll add a second length of Tygon - I rather suspeted 5' wouldn't do...
Ahhh, I didn't realize the swiftech had 7/16". Does a bath in hot water shrink the tubing?
I have 2 Antec Spotcool fans 1 for the NB and one for the RAM
