    So what do you guys think about this setup?? Cpu block: Swiftech Apogee, GPU waterblock: Swiftech MCW60-R Pump: AquaXtreme 50Z-DC12 Inline , Radiator: Swiftech MCR-220, Tubing: MasterKleer 7/16" with steel worm clamps, Thermal Paste: Arctic Silver 5, Coolant: Distilled Water [80-90%] & Anti-Freeze [10-20%], Accessories: Polypropylene T-fitting, 2x120MM shroud, water dye

    And im a complete noob at watercooling, so i need to know the basics like how to set up me loop, where everything goes, etc...

    Pump is good though i would prefer the D5 or the DDC pumps.
    Change the rad to a Thermochill PA series... better flow rate and performance even with quiet fans.

    If you are just cooling the CPU and GPU... as well as using a T-Line for bleeding. The loop would go as follows:

    Radiator - Pump - CPU - GPU - T-Line - Radiator

    When filling the loop with water, there'll be a lot of air bubbles etc... so just rock/tilt the rig back and forth and turn on/turn off the pump every few seconds till all the air bubbles disappear.

    some people like to go:

    Pump > Radiator > CPU > GPU > T-Line >

    Because some pumps can throw a lot of heat back into the water, probably minimal gains to be had though. In the end choose whichever one allows for a neater loop inside your case (for pump/rad order).

    Isn't Anti Freeze already coloured?
    Therefore, no need water dye. Save some $$$ here.
