Custom water cooling.

What do I need other than the reservoir? are there any guides on water cooling, can i use one reservoir to cool cpu and gpu? Im still learning about this and im wanting to seriously get into water cooling and making my own reservoir...Ive seen some tutorials on how to make some and what i need how to test for potential leakage, but other than that what else do I need ?

A pump, tubes, waterblocks, radiator, fans, coolant, barbs etc - basically everything else that goes a long with a reservoir

Yes, you can include your card into the loop if you wish.

These links should give you a better idea of what's involved:

Genesis4455,
Sky is really the limit. The most extreme I've seen uses a triple super radiator with six fans in push/pull configuration. The choice to separately cool the cpu from the gpu's is your's but most will link all the gpu's to cool after the liquid flows from the cpu.

I have seen even more extreme - with liquid nitrogen. It cools at minus 320F.

You can use a large reservoir/tank and not use radiator at all. I've had a setup back then that consist of 2 pumps (one for CPU, the other for GPU) and a large clay water tank, around 250 liters of water. 2 tubes goes to each pump, and the exit tube off the device goes straight to the water. With that much water, I don't need radiator because it needs LOTS of heat to increase the water temp 1 deg C. At my friend's setup I even tested with submerged water pump, which goes VERY well and very silent also...

I wonder at what point a dedicated refrigerant like we use on our refrigerator/freeze could work....I'm sure I'm not the first to think of this.....maybe cost?
