Don't forget your radiator in that planned loop order.

The only time the order of your loop makes a difference is when you're using a t-line. Your loop will bleed exactly the same with a reservoir regardless of how you set it up.

Shrouds are good, but their impact on performance is minimal. Dont' worry about it.

The rad can be higher than the reservoir without causing any problems.

Nope, not quite. It's:

pump - rad - cpu - chipset - res - back to pump.

You want to have the "coldest" water to cool the CPU as much as possible. What's your case?

the case is a canada computers house brand.. just like this one:
Canada Computers - Cases > Clearance : Duke P4 ATX Mid Tower Case with 450w PS (White-Silver) FC-DU09AL-WE/SV.

but black.. has 3x120mm fans (1xfront 1xrear 1xleft side) and a 80mm fan mount on the right side to cool the drives. not a bad case for $40..
i may mod the top of the case for the rad or upgrade to an antec 900 and put it in the front...

First first, could we get your computers specs ?

Second, why do you want to get watercooling ?

Third, are those temps with an overclocked CPU or GPU ?

Normally, ppls get watercooling to push their watercooling further. Now, i do realize that some will get it for the "bling" factor and only for that... But if thats why your aiming at watercooling, then, IMO, it's useless to go watercooling.

Oh and BTW: Your English is terrible. Had a hard time understanding you Kinda hard to help when you can't understand the questions!

If the board is setting it as 3-3-3-3, I can almost guarantee that it's running at the 210 speeds. That's not all that bad though, you're probably getting some mighty fine bandwidth with your latencies set so low.

Bah, seriously m8, i don't think you need watercooling. And that 900 case is one of the worst case out there for watercooling. But if you really want to get watercooling, i'll help you out for sure!

Antec 900 is a pretty horrible water cooling case...

Also, how are you planning to make your own pump? PC Water cooling pumps are quite inexpensive...

Where are you reading 42C with air? Is that load temps?
