Hi I'm new to the form/watercooling so I'm looking for advice about my parts list, feel free to tell me about better parts/cheaper but same ability but please tell me why you think your part/parts are better.
My computer as of now is as fallows.

Case: Corsair 800D
CPU: i7-2600k OC to 4 now will OC more when I'm liquid cooling.
GPU: evga GTX 460 v2 x2 not going to water cool these but am looking to upgrade in less then a year so i need a loop that can handle that.
PSU: Corsair AX860
Motherboard: Asus P8Z68 Deluxe/Gen3
Ram: G.Skill 12gb 3x4gb ddr3 1600

The parts I'm looking at getting are as fallows.

Reservoir: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/10277/ex-res-164/Froz...

Radiator: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/5326/ex-rad-109/Black...

Fittings:http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11110/ex-tub-703/Bits... x6 i think 6 is all i will need.

CPU block: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14365/ex-blc-1000/Swi...

Pump: http://www.swiftech.com/mcp655.aspx

Tubing: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/13728/ex-tub-986/Dang...

I'm not sure what the best coolant is i know i don't want to use distilled water but thats all so post your favorite.

P.s I'm only 16 so i don't have a a million dollars to spend on parts this is going to take me a good while to save for as is so please don't go over the top with expensive parts unless they are 100% better then i have posted here.

Coolant can ruin your water cooling setup! Just go to the store, and buy distilled water. Also get a KillCoil!

Did you read the sticky?

Better waterblock:

Drop the expensive reservoir and get another radiator, this will allow you to expand even more.

Any reason why you don't want to use distilled water? Just get that and a silver kill coil.

I really like the look of that res though lol and part of the reason I'm water cooling is for the look.

why do you say get a different radiator? or are you saying get another one so i have 2?

last but not least why do you like that cpu block better?

and i will look into distilled water more.

The raystorm performs better than the Apogee, it's a great waterblock./

I'm saying get TWO radiators, so you can expand and cool other parts of your system later on.

People won't be looking at your system 24/7 ;) 

Coolants/additives can cause many problems within your watercooling loop. You don't want to spend a few hundred and find out the liquid you're running in your loop corrodes or even gunked up your blocks!
