Thanks for the link of XGs build. That helps a lot.

The type of fitting is all down to personal preference really, though I do prefer compression fittings as well, even though you need to take the inner diameter of the tubing as well as the outer diameter in to consideration, whereas with barb you just need the inner diameter, but that's not really a problem to match sizes.

Radiator sizes in length are pretty simly. They're simply sized by the amount of 120mm fans you can fit on one, so a 120 radiator is simply a single 120mm fan, 240 = 2 fans and so on.
Again Everlong, thank you. I think I know what I will be looking for now, and I know I need a 240 radiator (using the top CD drive for the reservoir).

I use this:
Thermaltakeusa*»*Thermaltakeusa*»*BigWater 760is : BigWater 760is CL-W0121

I have more than pleased with my system. I went to this solution when I started running dual video cards and overclocking my Q6600. Currently with stock settings I average about 42C-45C. Pushing my system with overclock to 3.0ghz and Crysis I average about 55C.

Good luck with your quest.....it IS worth it.

Thank you Fabe, good links.

Bobtran, I saw that and really didn't like that particular model. I can be picky sometimes, and I know EXACTLY how I want my system set up. I just have to hope that the parts exist to do so. So far, it seems that they do, except for a GPU block. Seems the 260 is not a popular water cooled part?

I saw that one, but for that price, I will pass on a GPU block for now.

Maybe later.

So far, here is what I have picked out:
Pump: Koolance PMP-450 $100

Radiator: Koolance 2x120mm, Copper (High Flow) - $60 (2 APEVIA CF12SL-UBL 120mm Blue LED Case Fans at $8 ea)
Reservoir: Danger Den Bay Reservoir (1 bay) - $35
Fittings: Koolance Compression Fitting Nozzles (ID: 13mm OD: 16mm) (cost added)
Tubing: Koolance Green UV PVC (ID: 13mm OD: 16mm) - $1.80 per foot
Tube Wrap: Maybe Later

Total comes to around $235...
