New Build

I'm planning on getting a new computer and want to get into watercooling. Below is a diagram of the parts for the system set as pump>CPU>radiator>GPU>radiator>reservoir.

I have decided to go with a seperate pump as opposed to pump/reservoir combo. The Swiftech MCP655 have everything I want which is strong, silent and reliable. I have also decided to go with distilled water and PT nuke biocide instead of coloured/UV coolant. There is T-line quick disconnect drain tube at the VGA block and pump. Still need to settle on fans for the radiators.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

there are really only two types of rads low FPI and high FPI. high FPI with high RPM fans 3600RPM+ can remove a lot of heat from a system with only a 360 or 2 240's. with low FPI and low RPM fans you will need a little more rad space for the system to remaine cool but it is not as loud either.

3 x 120mm XSPC RX is not enough for a 3570k and 570? What other mid-tower (preferably) case do you recommend?

well if you do not mind mounting the rads on the outside of the case you have 1 in the back and two side by side on the side plate with 4 inch stand off's it may not look cool but it works
