Those were just the links I posted since Frozencpu was mainly ontop for the search results. The only thing I ordered from Frozen was the Alphacool Rads since NCIX nor Dazmode carries them. The rest was ordered direct from Swiftech (cpu block and the res) since the CPU block was slightly cheaper directly from them (even after shipping) + the 2011 kit is included which NCIX does not include I think and since its most likely cheaper if I didn't order 1 part from Swiftech and the other from NCIX I just got both direct from Swiftech.

However besides those parts the rest of my loop is coming from NCIX if possible.

Edit: updated the front post with NCIX links.

alright just ask... your post makes a sense now ;]

and good luck... watercooling will make you realize that you will not go back to aircooling again...

your list is good except mcp 655 (too big and loud than friendly mcp 355 or other model) and koolance's qdc and adjustable length fittings (they are very good and high quality) + any brand compression fittings...

I realized the benefit of water cooling actually when I got an H100 to replace my CM Hyper 212+ and if I can get 4.01ghz with the H100 just think what I could get with the custom loop .

As for the pump I'm considering 655 with the speed adjustment dial so if its a little loud I can just dial it down. I also do plan on buying some Koolance QDC's along with some compression's. Saw them on MPC's April 2011 WC guide. Going to use them on the CPU and GPU blocks so I can do part swaps and not have to drag over a draining bucket .

Could you give me a link to some of Koolance's adjustable length fittings since I've never seen those before, unless your talking about an SLI fitting.

h100 is not worth to watercooling imho... use completely watercooling or aircooling...

mcp 655 meant for a huge case size... i think... i use mcp355 to handle 2x gpu and 1 cpu with 2 radiators... no problem except loud (i think something is wrong with my mcp355)

easy to google it.. and i dont make it up...

Fitting Couplings and Extenders of Expandable Length - Koolance

its pretty cool... with waterblock that has completely holes... not blind hole...

It's at the border being inspected, had it shipped by USPS so maybe to avoid surprise fees

Got a question about the flow of the loop. Besides the fact the pump should ALWAYS be directly fed by the reservoir, does the flow order of the loop otherwise matter ? (ie should the pump feed to the CPU block, then in to the radiator, etc)

the component order doesnt matter. the temp difference is soo minute its almost negligible. one thing is important however, it helps alot having the pumps at the lowest point of the loop. they can be fed by the res or rad or anything else so long as they dont go dry. i would concentrate on having short connections and a good place to keep your pump low. have the pump push up and let all the other components flow down i found in my testing that seems to give good flow. but its very specific to the loop so your situation might differ.
