This is the first time im watercooling so this is what my plan is. I am gonna do the cpu now and create a separate loop for the gpu and mobo later. Here is the kit I was lookin at. Any feedback is appreciated.

This with the swiftech pump
How good is this. Btw, how much is sub ambient liquid coolin?

More about : good setup

A single loop would be better if you add GPU or other components. That's a great kit, has the D5 pump upgrade.

You cannot go sub ambient with normal watercooling.

Thanx for the quick response. So your saying it would be more efficient to put both the cpu and the gpu in one loop?

More efficient and more cost effective (1 pump vs. 2).

I should put the cpu in the loop first right?
Or (if this is possible?) Put a splitter and have both go at same time. Is this possible and which is more efficient? :bounce:

Better to run serial in this scenario. You'd only want to run parallel to restrictive components with similar characteristics.

Thank you very much. For my gpu i think ill use quick disconnects, can you link me with the correct size if my tubing was the size in the link above. Can you try to find the right size on frozen cpu. Btw, Ill need 2 right?

I tried to find the right size but the way they sized it was confusing to me because i dont understand what G1/4 is

If I give you the answers, are you going to know what to do when I'm not around? This is why learning what you need, why you need it and how to use it or how to improvise is important in terms of a loop. This is also why the sticky exists so you can develop some of these skills through learning and asking questions based on that learning.

I don't see an QDC's for 7/16ID tubing. Do you need quick disconnects?

This exact topic is covered in the watercooling sticky...have you read through it yet?

You need to determine if it's compatible with your CPU socket mount, you have enough room for the 2x 5.25" bay/res/pump and a space to mount the radiator.

I'm pretty sure I do. I def have room for the 2x 5.25 bays as I have a HAF 932 advanced. I also Think ill be able to replace the 230mm fan on the top with a radiator 3x 120mm
