Planning your system and researching the possibilities and hardware takes a lot of time but does pay off in the long run. I believe the first step is choosing your case. Big is better and easier. Big is not the only thing to consider. Versatility is very important; where you can put or move things to and the routing of tubes or hoses. How to achieve proper air flow is sometimes forgot when building a water cooling system. It's still very important.

Just take your time and do your home work.
Thanks Layback Bear I always do a lot of reading then experiment with older systems and sometimes, when possible, 2nd hand parts so as to be able to make mistakes without major headaches or wasting money. I did the same when starting to overclock and it paid off in the long run. I've built many systems for friends and relatives but the knowledge is never complete and there's always something new to learn and this site is a wonderful resource for better knowledge. Luckily here in Melbourne people tend to put their older systems out on the front lawn for anyone to take and I have found many systems with very little wrong with them and actually often with all the personal details including banking details which in the wrong hands can lead to a lot of problems for people but I just send them an email telling them they can either have the HD back or I just wipe it for for them as Karma can bite back if we misuse it. Thanks for the input and suggestions
