3 thing...

1: you need water additive
2: for hose clamp, i think the best choise is go to canadiantire and buy some plumber hoseclap(see on pcture of my setup) but it's me
3: maybee some metal brab for the swiftech reservoir..

but all in all i think you are good to go

what are you looking to cool? and what are your case?

i would get metal barbs. Plastic ones can break as you're putting the tubing on, or taking it off. Plus, it goes on easier on the metal ones. You do not need water additive.. i've just used distilled water in 2 of my pc's and they've been fine. Just make sure you do not get anything Aluminum. Also, agreeing with someone who posted above, don't use those hose clamps. The ones where you tighten with a screw driver are awsome. NCIX sells, or used to sell them, they were called primo chill worm clamps. I cannot find them on the website now though.

Looks good. You could always go 7/16th tubing to make you less reliant on clamps, cable ties will do fine with that tubing on 1/2 inch barbs. Also you'll need some distilled water and an additive like swiftech Hydrx to stop algae growth etc. I'd probably go with the swiftech Res as well-probably better for bleeding the loop.
