Hi so I am planning to build a second computer but I want to try water cooling this time and I wanted to see is it all right for what I am doing my main area that im not too sure about is the radiators and what fans keeping in mind I want it as quiet as possible.
I want to watercool an evga gtx 780 sc gpu along with the possibility to watercool my core i5 3570k in the future. I do not intend to Overclock anything. My main question is how many radiators and what thickness and what fans.
I plan to use a nzxt h440 case http://

The reservoir http://
the pump http://
the cooling plate for the gtx 780 http://
The cpu cooler http://

and the most important part the radiators I plan to put the monsta triple cooler in the front in a push pull config
and the other radiator on the top of the case with either a push or a pull not sure leave a suggestion please
http://
http://

And i have no idea about the fans I was thinking of using the nzxt fans v2 that come with the case

And lastly what would the minimum amount of radiators be needed and what thickness is best.

Sorry for all the questions but theres so many options when it comest to the radiators and fans

I would not get those fans. Though expensive, if possible, I would get Noctua fans. As for radiators, I would at least get a 360, and the thicker the better.

Any other cheap alternative

yes


Am I correct in assuming that you need 120mm fans?
