I am also wondering if a basic ATX form factor will support it. If you need more information, either bump the thread or private message me. Thanks!

are you wanting a custom water loop or an AIO unit?

If you want a simi-custom loop look into a xspc raystom kit, if you want an AIO unit look into a corsair H100i

I use a corsair h50 on my 3770k. Temps 30c lower than stock intel cooler temps in prime95

I highly recommend going custom. You have a 1155 socket. So when you're looking at kits just pick one that supports 1155 and almost all of them do... All you need is a 120mm rad for cooling a cpu but don't overclock unless you have 240mm of rad. The kits will have instructions and come with everything you will need.. Until you feel more comfortable at it... We were all noobs at one point!! Now I have TONS! And always want more!

The phobya 120lt kit is best for the noobs if you ask me... But EK and XSPC are reputable brands as well!

Sorry for the late reply, is there any other requirements needed such as the ATX form factor and dimensions? Plus given Humphrey's acumen and knowledge, I've found Intel Sockets of XS Waterblocks at Overclockers but I am not sure which one to choose to order.

The only requirement is the socket of your cpu, which in ur case is 1155. The order of your loop doesn't matter as long as the reservoir is above the pump and the pump pulls from the res, after that you can do whatever you want. I usually do res>pump>block>rad>res but again it's not needed that way. ATX size doesn't matter unless you want to watercool your mobo which is very UNneeded. I don't recommend watercooling mobos. The price to performance gain is WAY to costly. That's for the extreme. I highly recommend the EK Supremacy CPU Block its ranked amongst the best, if you can afford it... Always go with the thickest rad you can get 45mm-60mm are the most common. All rads perform about the same if they are name brand. Pumps, I have always been happy with the phobya pumps, they are very cheap and the DC12 400 works wonderful. The Alphacool Nexxxos rads are also some of the best, and relatively cheap.

Thank you very much for the information, just a few thing, what is the exact radiator you have, since I am not entirely sure what is a 'single loop', is this simply a single radiator? Will I need cooler liquids and if so, what is the best one? And is alphacool.com their own website? Or can you suggest others? Again thank you very much for helping me decide :) 

Also is there any dangers and any other things like refilling coolants?
