Hey all! First, I wanna say thanks for any help given. Second, this is my most current list for my first potential build. I would use this computer to play games, stream, use Unity, program, schoolwork, and do some light video editing. Revisions welcome.

Are you only cooling your CPU with this loop or GPU as well?
You are going to need 2 fittings per piece in the loop so by my quick math (CPU, Pump, RAD, RES comes out to 8 fittings), so $64 for fittings
If you want to cool your GPU with liquid as well jump over to this and see if they make a full size cooler for it

And if you do you are going to want at least 360 (120x3) of rad space to cool everything
