Hello community-- (:

So, I'm thinking of getting some new water cooling components and I have a few questions that I'd like to be answered so I have a more clear view of what to do when I get the parts--

Case: NZXT Switch 810 (White) Full ATX Tower Case

Radiator:
"Swiftech MCR320-XP eXtreme Performance Radiator"
http://www.xoxide.com/swiftech-mcr320-xp.html
(Also, should I put the rad on the bottom of the case, or mount it on the top?)

Reservoir and Pump (in one):
"Swiftech Maelstrom 5 1/4 in. Dual bay Reservoir w/ Single Pump Housing"
http://www.xoxide.com/swiftech-maelstrom51-4-dualbayres...
(By the way, is this product any good?)

CPU Block:
"Koolance HD-60 Dual-HDD Water Block"
http://www.xoxide.com/koolance-hd-60.html

GPU Block:
"Koolance VID-NX690 Water Block"
http://www.xoxide.com/koolancevid-nx690waterblock.html

Liquid Coolant:
"PrimoChill PC ICE Non-Conductive Water Cooling Fluid (32oz.)"
http://www.xoxide.com/primoice-nonconductive-fluid-clea...

So, the questions I have are-

How will the loop configuration be with the GPU and CPU blocks look?

In what order with the components be in?

How often will I need to perform maintenance/ wash out tubes and such?

Is this cooling system up to par (or more) and good enough for some good overclocking?


---If you want my Specs, it should be in the signature--

{P.S} Sorry if this is a bit much, and too long. But I need the help. :) 

Thanks in advance! :D

your CPU block is for a HDD not a CPU but other than that it looks fine also read the sticky it may help

if you would like to see how things might look try looking at build logs or the gallery for ideas

Ohhh, lol, I read your reply wrong. xD (idiot) So, the CPU block I chose out is actually for a HDD? Aha, yep I read it over. Thanks again. Lol, I should really read carefully.

Aha, I read the sticky. So, this is just me asking for your opinion now-

Do you think that the parts I've chosen out are sufficient? (:
