I am going to purchase a Core i7 920 here in a few days. I am also going to purchase a Swiftech Apogee GTZ with the LGA1366 bolt-through kit. I am also putting all of this in an Antec 1200 case. Which type of tubing would you guys recommend? I also need a good, quiet, cheap, and flow-adjustable pump. Also, what radiator box should I get, since I believe that I will only have enough molex connectors to do a two-fan radiator? Also, which fans should I get to put into the rad box? One last question, what do I need to get in terms of anti-corrosive/anti-fungal liquid to put into the water loop?
