Yes, you're going to have to use a T-fitting. Make sure the center hole on the waterblock is the inlet, and the outside two are the outlet.

You might also want to go down to your local hardware/autoparts store and try to get a couple of thicker o-rings for the fittings going on the radiator, since the Swiftech models have a countersunk groove in them that might keep the standard compression fitting o-rings from sealing properly. Once you get the parts, try them and see - the pressure needs to be on the oring, no the fitting itself.

Edit I forgot to ask should I lap my CPU since I know that the stinger is totally flat?

Personally, I wouldn't bother lapping unless you think your temperatures are going to be the limiting factor. Depending on how high you overclock, and how much voltage you're willing to feed the chip, you might never reach the point where your temperatures are the issue. Furthermore, not all chips even need lapping in the first place.

ok I just thought that i might have to because the stinger was totally flat, this is a good thing because I am a little nervous in the lapping department. where do I find distilled water and how much do I need?

I just grab mine from safeway or somesuch, a 4 liter will last many loops. Think it was only a couple of dollers. IIRC
