The system is gonna be an I7 2600K going for at least 5.0 GHz....Also which pump, tubing, etc. Any advice is wecome... BTW I want to use 1/2" barbed fittings throughout with 7/16 tubing. Just gonna cool the CPU for now. Thanks in advance :hello:

Your question says rad but then you say you like these,

Whats your overall budget idea for a loop? thats probably the best place for us to start,
and do you need U.S. or U.K. sites for links?

Budget is $350.00 USD... I like the Helix as a reservoir....I have to go with a 2 x140 Radiator as my case is made for it....Needed advice on the entire loop basically

Helix alone will set you back $100+.

That leaves you with $250 for a CPU only loop, which is possible.

DDC pump w/top
XSPC Raystorm CPU block
Rad of choice
1/2"ID fittings or barbs...likely barbs with your budget
Primochill 1/2" LRT tubing of choice (good price, great tubing)

Yup, although shiny, the T-Virus is a definite luxury item lol :)
