    you don't have to use up to 3 rads...yes it does cost more money to setup but it is a lifetime investment, you can use from one system to another.

    Lots of great info in this thread. I’m planning on switching over to water cooling for OC applications and need some direction. Right now I'm happy where the CPU temp is with air cooled, but looking to water cooling anyways. I don't know if I can get lower temps with water cooling compared to air for the CPU. As for the GPU I'm sure I can get better temps with water cooling. Please let me know if the future water cooling setup I will be switching over to will be of any benefit to lowering temps.

    OC CPU @ 4.0 GHz
    Air cooled temp idle is 18-20 degrees C
    Air cooled temp load with Prime95 is 34-36 degrees C

    GPU Stock
    Air cooled temp idle is 36-40 degrees C
    Air cooled temp load is 74-80 degrees C

    System
    Cooler Master 690 II Case
    ASUS M5A99X EVO
    AMD FX-8120
    16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 Mhz
    ASUS GTX 590
    Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 800W
    Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD
    1.5TB Seagate Barracuda HD
    Blue-Ray DVD burner

    Water cooling parts to purchase
    Koolance VID-NX590 liquid cooling block
    Koolance CPU-370 cooling block
    (2) Koolance Radiator 2x140mm (1 for CPU and 1 for GPU)
    (4) Aerocool Shark Black Edition 140mm fan
    Koolance RP-452X2 Dual 5.25” Resevoir w/ dual Alphacool VPP655 pumps
    Danger Den Dreamflex clear UV tube
    Koolance LIQ-705 Colorless
    Rhobya pressure safety valve fitting plus other miscellaneous fittings

    Setup Loop
    Loop 1 – reservoir1/pump1 --> radiator1 --> CPU --> reservoir1/pump1
    Loop 2 – reservoir2/pump2 --> radiator2 --> CPU --> reservoir2/pump2

    Since I have two pumps and a dual bay split reservoir with loop 1 and loop 2 configurations, I decided to do a parallel loop. Not a serial loop split into two loops.

    Can a water cool loops system build up enough pressure to cause leaks? Is it necessary to install a pressure safety vale to automatically release pressure to prevent leaks or other issues?

    Your advice is most appreciated.

    welcome to PUREOC!

    leaks are possible in watercooling but from the pressure build up is NO. Some people don't even use clamps for their tubing if they are tight fit. PC's pump has low pressure to cause the tube to pop out of the fittings. However, it has enough pressure to push the coolant through where is not proper seals

    I'm not quiet sure understand your question but don't miss understood about a complete kit vs all-in-one sealed kit.

    Does using teflon tape on the threads help reduce or prevent leakage?

    teflon has dual purposes; thread sealer and prevent the threads to cease up when corrosion occurs. However, in PC fittings you don't need it because the fittings has seal ring (O-ring), if the fittings doesn't the O-ring then you can use the Teflon tape but you have to be careful with it. Because every time you remove the bards, the tape get ripped and its debris can fall back into the coolant loop and it will clog up the water block.

    There is no need for Teflon tape. Use an O ring..

    there is no reason to get pre mixed coolants all you need is distilled water and a silver coil or pt nuke. you can mix brass, stainless steel,copper,nickel and you will not get corrosin.
    If you add aluminum to the mix of the metals i mention you will get galvanic corrosion
