Not really sure why your getting a blue dye bomb and getting Feser One which is clear and under UV it's blue. You might as well just get blue Feser One. Less additives.

I'm pretty sure the RadBox is basically universal, though the Swiftech MCR320 performs better than the Stealth IIRC.

And no CPU block? Lotta money to dump just for GPU cooling...

I'd go with the dark nickel plated Bitspower barbs, but that's just me.

No trouble there. The radbox only uses the mounting bolts on one fan, and those are universal across 120mm fans. Although I'd expect an MCR320 to have the edge over the Stealh. You don't have them listed, so I hope you've got three fans kicking around for that rad.

yesthe radbox work on black ice rad(i have one on a black ice pro rad) in fact it work with any 120mm rad

and just like that.. for my own experience i dont use anymore primochill dye and hose clamp(or other plastic hose clamp).. if you buy a pre-mixed collant(excep for primochill collant if you want color) you dont need dye anyway.. be the way the best dye i ever use is the d-tek one/feser one and for hose clamp go at canadiantire buy some plomber hose clamp

I want it real blue & besides the extra is only $5.

I went with that rad as it looks to be slimmer than the others to save on space out back if that's where I end up mounting it. Which i'm not even sure of. I might even get a new case for this(more than likely will).

That's why i'm going with a triple rad so I can ad the CPU in later when it's necessary to do so but right now with the 45nm chips heat isn't really an issue right. Maybe once I go quad & start needing cooling for OCing then I'll ad it.

I was going to use those barbs but judging by the pics the length of the screw in looks half as deep as the DD ones right.

Yeah I want it BLUE though lol.

I usually do use those metal clamps but aren't needed really & look horrendous imo in a system.

If you want it really blue, just get a bottle of Feser View blue dye and add as much as you want.

If you want that GPU block, move fast. It'll be at least 2 weeks for more to come in and I think there's only 1-2 left.

If you want deep blue I'd suggest getting the pre-coloured Feser/Primochill tubing, but it's up to you. If you stick with Tygon though, get 10ft so you have lots of extra since you'll probably want to redo your loop a couple times...

The Bitspower barbs work great, I have the 3/8" ones on my D-TEK FuZion v2 and the rest of my barbs are Bitspower Compression ones. No leaks and they have a nice grip to them compared to the Primochill Ghost barbs I used originally which began leaking after a while.
