im completly new to watercooling, and am geting a 800d case,

the hardware,

2600k, gigabyte ud5, 8gb ram, 1x gtx470,maybe another in future,

aim, not very much overclocking,maybe a little, but would like the pc as quiet as possible, i liked the x flow rads but here they are rubbish,

to begin with the loop will just have the cpu watercooled, with the option to expand later,

can someone give me an ideaofthe bestpartsto use to accomplish my aim, i would post my ideasbut i have so many, and have got lost in reviews, and all the infoirmation,

You should easily get 4.5Ghz from that CPU,especially if it's watercooled.
I have got that X-Flow rad in my TJ07 and it keeps my i7 950 in the mid 20's when idle
and low 30's at 4.2ghz,so i think they are great,plus they make your loop look neater.
These Res/Pump combo's are great and a favourite with most builders.

thats great, i will prb get one of those rads then, i was more looking into a drivebay resorvior, if i got that pump/res cobo you suggested would there be any prob of getting a bay resorvior also,

so in the loop there would be bay res, at top, to the radiator, radaitor down through the cpu then , ( in future down through the graphics) to the pump/res andback to drive bay res

If you want a bay reservoir then the pump top reservoir is redundant -- just use an aftermarket pump top or the stock DDC one, though the stock top is for 3/8 ID hose.

can anyone tell me if there is any issue of having 2 resovors in a case? i like the tube ones but would like people who are looking at the case from the front to see some water,so was thinking of getting one of these aswell http://www.candccent...al-Edition.html

so id have a pump atthe bottem, going to a tube res, into this, out into the radiator, then to another radiator if possible then to the cpu and gfx, and back to pump,
