Default Water Cooling?

would all of these parts work together and is that all that i need for just a CPU set up?
CPU waterblock:
Hose Clamps:

do i only need 1 of each of those? would i need to do any modding to my antec 1200 to get it all to fit inside?

You shouldn't need to make any case modifacations.

You shoul only need 1 of the reservoir, radiator, cpu waterblock and the pump but the lines and clamps i'm not sure on

all of that will work, but it all seems extremely overpriced.

Also, the waterfall res. is useless, it gives you no actual benefit. get an xspc passive res. and your waterblock is not the best... get a danger den mc-tdx. its only a few dollars more, and it looks a lot cooler. umm as far as hose clamps...thats a massive ripoff. just go to a hardware store and buy some, they're about $.75 each. 10 feet of tubing is plenty lol. also, you will have to buy 3/8" barbs for all of those. get compression fittings. they're a lot easier to use, they hold better, and they look way cleaner. IMO XSPC makes the best radiators, so you might want to look into them also.

you should be able to mount the radiator in the front of the case no problem, but external mounting is typically cooler. Don't waste your money on a 'radbox' all you have to do is screw the fan into the back of the case, and screw the radiator onto the other side of the fan.
