Windows 7 Ultimate 64

At this point we would be more helpful to know the exact case you're using currently.

1. The water heatsink that goes on the processor.

2. Radiator.

3. Reservoir.

4. Pump.

5. Tubes.

6. Fasteners.

7. Liquid.

Is there anything I'm missing or will that be everything I need to be good to set it up?
nope you got it..I'm using a modded H70 btw and it works quite well...simple to install zero maintenance no leaks etc etc.

If you build a custom loop then try to use compression fittings as much as possible to minimise "chances" of leaks.

Use distilled water also and silver..good quality HS paste like "Arctic Silver" or similar.

good luck with your build...oh and btw leak test the loop BEFORE you mount it up and fire up the PC..won't make you happy to find a leak if your PC is powered on at that time.

OK thanks. I'll do a little more research. The case I was planning to get is NZXT Gamma.

If you choose to do a custom loop (which is way harder, but I recommend it over the all-in-one systems), you will also need to decide on the size of your tubing and make sure it all matches up (I made this mistake) as well as making sure the pump you choose is powerful enough for your system, etc.
