I'm new to liquid cooling and I was hoping to water my CPU. I wondering what you need to do so.

I know I need a radiator, CPU water block, reservoir, pump, tubing, and fittings. But I have no idea have many fittings I need.

If you are new to water cooling, you may want to find a water cooling set or combo on the internet. If you want a simple water cooling system (which does not perform nearly as well) then try the Corsair H50 or the CoolIT ECO/Domino.

Are you in NY? the reason I'm asking is because "tax" oh it hurts lol...

Maybe you can post the parts of the system that you put together here.

Here is a 5% off on your total order. "pcapex"

Maybe these pumps:

Swiftech MCP655-B 12v Water Pump w/ 3/8" Conversion Kit (317 GPH)
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/2128/ex-pmp-27/Swifte...

Swiftech MCP655™ 12v Water Pump w/ Speed Control and 3/8" Conversion Kit (317 GPH)
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/6190/ex-pmp-54/Swifte...


As for fitting you'll need 2 for Radiator, 2 for Reservoir, 2 for CPU block and maybe get two more just in case.

Lastly, get one of this:
Antimicrobial .999 Fine Silver Tubing Strip 'Kill Coil" - 3.18mm x 0.5mm - 6" Length
+ Distilled Water from your local store =) No need for expensive coolant.
