    Wherever I can find the iron.
    You need to have either a reservoir or T line, which should be placed at the top of the loop. I'd suggest a Swiftech Micro Res. Small footprint and effective. Also...leak test for a good couple of hours, outside of your case if possible.

    Find a used phase for 300 dollars.....

    You can find one if you look. If all your doing is your cpu.
