So the last part Of my build I need to order is the water cooling setup. My budget was< 250$ to get a decent CPU cooling set up. Tell me what you think. Let me know of some problems you can see with. I have spent weeks reading forums after forums. This is what I came up with.
First my new Comp
Case- Chaser MK-1
Intel i5 3570k
Gigabyte GTX 670
16gb ddr3 @ 1866
Corsair ax750
120gb SSD
500gb 5400rpm HDD
Water Cooling Set Up- 249$shipped
XSPC 750 240 Kit

XSCP Blue Tubing

Monsoon Compression Fittings

2Quick Disconnects on the res. I was worried about draining and thought this was a great idea.

I guess you could do this, but how often are you actually going to use this feature? I'd go with Koolance QDC; you'll want to ask Boiler and Moto about them.

I think he just intends to use the QDCs to drain (if/when necessary), since the pump will be the lowest point in the loop. That way, he can disconnect the block/rad from the pump/res, dump the res and drain out the lines.

They're a bit pricey, but work well. I had the VL4-series and they worked fantastically. The threading is a bit sharp - cut my hands up every time I touched them :/

I think Koolance's are the best flowing- others might be more restrictive. I've seen a review by Martin somewhere (I think it was Martin...) where they reviewed the impact to flow based on different QDC fittings available.

Put the rad like this:


Instead of having the tube go all the way to the left, have the rad turned so the tubing goes from the right.
