    New PC + Cooling Options

    I have watercooled for short period at a time beore; but this will be my first day to day water cooled system, so some advice would be good.

    I have the following; but wanted peoples Input on ze watercooling side; making sure it should all fit together etc.

    I do plan in the future to add a second rad and GPU blocks.

    CPU: Intel 5930k
    Mobo: Rampage V Extreme X99
    Ram: 32GB TeamGroup Elite DDR4-2400
    GPUs: R9 290 till AMD 300 Series comes out
    PSU: Spare Corsair 850W
    SSD: Spare 480GB Crucial SSD
    HDDs: 2x Seagate 3TBs and 2x HGST 4TBs

    Now for the cooling:

    CPU Block: EK Water Blocks EK-Supremacy EVO - Full Nickel (Original CSQ)
    Radiator: XSPC RX480 Quad Fan Radiator V3
    Pump: XSPC D5 Vario (Body + Screwring)
    Reservoir: PrimoChill 360mm AGB CTR System Phase II - Red
    Tubing: Primochill Primoflex Advanced Tubing 19/13 - Red - 5m.
    Barbs: XSPC G1/4" to 1/2" Barb Fitting (Black Chrome)
    Compression Fittings: EK Water Blocks EK-ACF Fitting 13/19mm - Red

    Additional Bits (from Stores / Ordered)
    5L Distilled Water
    Hose Cutters
    Mayhem Silver Kill Coils *4

    So any body got any thoughts/can see anything I have missed?

    I am also not entirely sure if that rad is actually decent or if I am better off getting an xspc photon 270 with the pump attached. The one thing that puts me off that is the fact is isnt coloured .

    Though I was tempted to get: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/showp...41&subcat=2142
    But in the past have heard issues with Bay Reservoirs.

    From an engineering stance the design of a bay res is more likely to fail than a tube res would.

    And what case is this lot goin in?

    Maybe opt for a concentrated ek fluid to lubricate the pumps and have a longer shelf life than a silver coil? (use both as you have the kill coil.)
