    Go for the DDC Pump with the XSPC Reservoir Top and take that separate res out.

    The Feser rad is the best with low speed fans.

    The Black Ice is best with louder high speed fans

    The Swiftech is the best bang for buck.

    Ok then I'm going for the 355 with restop.

    Fesar 120.2 Rad
    Apogee GTZ
    a few feet of Masterkleer Tubing 7/16" ID 5/8" OD
    Pure Distilled Water + some Antifreeze w/ Dtek Liquid F/X UV Dye: Visible Blue

    how many barbs will I need ? just 1/2" correct?
    also, will i need clamps ?
    might go with this monitor
    Thermaltake HardCano SE Water Cooling Accessory A2349, w/ Blue Backlight LCD Display

    also, with the rad fans blowing in with the 4 side fans blowing in, will the 1 rear fan, psu fan and top fan have any trouble matching them?

    Thanks alot for your help.

    I wouldent run antifreeze, all you need is plain Distilled Water and some PT-Nuke from Petras (http://www.petrastechshop.com/pepcobi1.html), and I wouldent run die either, just get UV reactive tubing, (http://www.performance-pcs.com/cata...=23610&zenid=dd5f0ea1fe05bed98fe5b5ac75b34cb0), Dye will just help plug up your blocks, causing higher temps.

    6 Barbs is all you will need, definatly 1/2", G1/4 thread. You might want to get a couple for spares, you never know when you will be adding something to the loop.

    I recomend using clamps, you dont want to run a risk of leakage.

    Your fan setup will be fine, I have 3 pulling into my case through a rad, plus a seperate intake with only 1 exhaust, works great.

    Ok then Just Pt nuke. I won't run dye as it sounds more painful than it is good. the cable I was going to get was 7/16" ID, If I use the barbs you suggested will that tubing work fine all throughout the loop?

    Thanks alot for the help.
