Question Liquid Cooling

Soon Iím getting a new case, The Silverstone TJ07 with a window. Iíve decided to get liquid cooling because it looks awesome and is effective, Iíve decided on what bits and pieces to get, I was just wondering what everyone thinks about what Iím going to order and is there anything better you would recommend.

im far from an expert on watercooling but i think i remember some1 saying buying a watercooling kit is like buying a prebuilt desktop ...... you will never get the same quality / performance buyin a kit as you would custom buying 1...?

maybe i didnt hear this lol or maybe i did but i just thought id post it

To start with I’m from the UK so I can’t buy anything from Newegg, and I don’t want to buy a kit because you don’t get exactly what you want and have a huge amount of bits you don’t need, waste of money if you ask me, and just like ssc456 said the quality isn’t that good. Thanks for the input though.

You should check out Petra's Tech Shop. They have some very comprehensive water cooling kits and will ship overseas.

Thats not true, Swiftech makes very nice affordable water cooling kits. Also, Petra's Tech Shop is a great water cooling store, some might not even call what they sell kits because they actually pick the parts out then put them together to sell as a "kit" to you to make it easier. They also sell individual pieces if you want to go that route as well.

since you're in the UK, get a Thermochill radiator, the best radiator on the market. Swiftech Apogee GTX block, EK full cover block for vga or Swiftech MCW-60, use Pentosin and some PT Nuke for your fluid along with distilled water, for the pump, use a Swiftech D5/MCP655. For tubing, get Tygon R3603 or MasterKleer.

Thanks I’ve been looking for some of that stuff! Just a few more questions, when u see pipe sizes like this 11/8, 7/16 ect what does it mean! Which ones bigger?
Will this reservoir be ok? Swifttec MCRES-Micro res.
and finaly i'm a bit confused about the fluid, 3 different liquids n I mix them right?
