Question New water cooled machine

I am thinking of doing a new liquid cooled machine but first i am not sure if all the components i picked out match and can fit inside my case.
This would be my first so i am kind of a noob here hehe :D .
This is what i have so far.

Koolance VID-NX590 Full Cover Waterblock
Swiftech Apogee HD
swiftech MCRx20-XP "eXtreme Performance" Radiator Series
Bitspower BitsPower Z-Multi 150mm Water Tank
Swiftech MCP655 pump
Case-Corsair graphite 600T


These are my Specs:
Intel core i7 2600k
Geforce GTX 590
Asus maximus IV Extreme
8GB Ripjaws RAM
HDd 750GB + SSD 124 I want do do a loop from my for my CPU and GTX 590.Only that will be liquid cooled.
Only the CPU is overclocked at 4.7 GHz

I am wondering first of all will all this fit and will it go together.

If u have any suggestion for the rest of the parts or the ones i already have picked out please say so :)

Oh btw i can only afford a 240mm rad on the top and a single 120mm on the back.I am not sure if u can put another dual 140 in the front....i am not sure where i can put my HDD and SSD if u remove he trays

First suggestion, research everything you can about water cooling. I have recently completed my first build/water cooling mod and it took me over 6 months of planning before I even considered purchasing parts. Also remember that water cooling will add a significant amount of $$ to your building.

Next I would look up other water cooling projects revolving around the Corsair graphite 600T and how other's have done it to get an understanding of how much work it will take to water cool that case.

Unfortunately my case is the Haf-X by Cooler Master so I can't tell if your rig will work or not, but I'd stress the fact that planning is key and to not rush a water cooled project.

Chomie.

A fellow named Ron Sanut did an excellent build in a 600T. He used 200mm and 240mm rads. Here's the link to the seven or so videos:

The only way you can custom watercool a 600t without mods is by using a slim rad (mounted up top) or possibly in front... theres also the option of hanging it out back but I used a XSPC slim 240 and put it up top inside the case

preferably i want to install a dual 120 up top and a single in the back but i cant be sure weather that is enough to cool my GTX 590 and my 2600k.I really want to avoid any mods to the case.I wont be building this by myself.I have a friend hwo can mount everything together but i first need to make sure everything can fit and that it can cool the parts.From what i understand with a good loop i can get my GTX down to 60-65 from the current 87-88?

have your friend build you external box since you don't want cut up case, i see that T600 has water tubing pass through on back of case. or use the rear 120mm Fan holes and #6-24 threaded rod to mount rad (3x120) off them

put a 3x120 at the back? won't that interfere with all the cables and stuff?

use threaded 4x 6-24 rods with 4 inch spacers so rad clears cables
