We will take a look at all the parts of a typical watercooling loop and give pointers as to what to think about. Here are the topics to be covered:

– Kits vs Custom vs expandable AIOs
– Pump
– Reservoir
– Radiator
– Fans
– Tubing
– Fittings
– Quick Disconnects
– Coolant & Additives
– Blocks
– Cases
– Safety
– Recommended cost no object first loop

As always for a first loop we try and save money on things you are likely to change later, while spending money on quality parts that will last. You may also want to consult “Why cool your PC with water?” if you’re on the fence as to whether or not to do it.
