Great thanks for the advice! Is it just me or is there a lot more people getting into WC lately? It could be that I just noticed it more because now I'm quite interested in it.

If you want an aftermarket top for the Swiftech 655, EK is currently developing one. Also I believe Koolance has a top(don't worry it's nickel-plated). I think your wc parts are good to go.

Ohh the more people that do logs for watercooling the more people get comfortable by learning and being able to go under water themselves i was always interested in watercooling but lack of knowledge and lack of images from users who have setups and other factors kept me away but after seeing many peoples rigs on this forum and with the great help from many of the forum members i took the plundge.

I'm planning on making the leap to water cooling on my next build, too. Like the last poster said, it's kind of daunting - it makes me feel like my first build all over again.

Anyway I was hoping some of you guys could help me out here, I've been doing some research and chosen what seems to be some of the best choices out there, but any advice would be appreciated. I'm only planning on adding my CPU to the loop at the moment but I am seriously considering adding the GPU in the near future. So here's what I have chosen:

Feser One Water replacement

Swiftech Mcres-Micro

Tygon 1/2" ID Tubing

Swiftech MCP655

Thermochill Pa 120.2

Finally for the CPU block I chose the D-Tek Fuzion V2. I already bought that from the HWC sponsored deals...Couldn't pass up the price!

I know a single rad might be enough for just the cpu but I want the option to add the gpu later. As for the clamps and screws etc, I can get all that at the hardware store I'm pretty sure. Oh and I also had to add a pair of barbs to go with the rad..I even managed to find those cheaper on pricecanda! Sorry for another thread just listing parts and looking for help but water cooling is quite new to me...thanks for the help!
1) feser coloured fluid will gunk up overtime best use UV tubing if want color

2) mcres ok try to get the version 2

3) good stuff get the colored stuff

4) D5 ok if want small pump the ddc with top out pumps the D5

5)rad be careful of screws not to punching a hole in the rad when mounting the fans

- Swiftech MCR220
- Bitspower

Now a few questions:
1)For the pump i was thinking to buy this MCP655-B,but i don't now how loud it is?
2)I saw this fittings from Bitspower, they are better than regular fittings?
3)When i will add the gpu to the loop i want to add another Swiftech MCR220?
