You can use the screw clamps just don't over tighten them.

Personally i've never liked the idea of liquid cooling, i know they use non-conductive solutions but the idea of any fluid going near my fav rig is a nightmare.

Its the Zinc Plated Jubilee Wormdrive that your after.

They should sell them in a hardware store or a plumbers store.

Distilled water. It's not conductive. Just get some PT Nuke or silver kill coils from Petrastechshop.com to keep things from growing in your loop.

Also, I'd recommend getting at least a 2x120MM radiator. I know you said you don't want a huge radiator, but liquid cooling isn't worth it for a single 120MM radiator.

I must admit, that is pretty good. It's not gonna be quiet though, unless that doesn't bother you.
