    No, I don't recommend going all out on your 1st h20 cooler. FYI, LGA1156 is exact same as LGA1155. So any LGA1156 cpu block will fit LGA1155. I recommend you try out a good kit of some sort. Like this:

    If you insist on DIY, you need one more thing: coolant. Most use distilled water from supermarket. I'd use a nonconductive coolant. It's a bit more expensive, but it is cheap insurance for your rig if your cooler leaks. The 1st thing to go would be the gpu.

    All the fittings must match. In your case, 1/2" ID or 3/4" OD. And your loop should be:

    pump > gpu > cpu > rad > res > pump

    out > in

    After assembly, you should test run it outside of the pc by jump-starting a psu for a few hours. 24 would be best. Fix any leaks & re-test.
