For the radiator, get the Thermochill PA120.3 instead. It's the best radiator out there, from what I hear.

The pump, you should get the Laing MCP655.

For the coolant, all you need is PT-Nuke, and pure distilled water.

If you plan on adding your graphics card(s) in the loop down the line I also recommend the PA120.3

And the Swiftech MCP655 is the same as the Laing D5. A great pump for sure.

Get the Variable speed D5.

The thermochill's are great but they're huge, and expensive.

Not to mention actually finding one available is harder than heck.

Hey, aspire. Is the MC655 really that loud, without speed control?

And what do you think of the nozzle kit, for the Fuzion?

It is less of a noise factor than sheer simplicity and convenience.

At full speed, yes It is audible. But when your filling a loop with a t-line, being able to slow down the flow makes bleeding much easier.

The nozzle kit is a great way to improve performance with only a slight restriction increase.

Also note that the "tubing" you linked is just the coils that go on the outside and not the norprene tubing itself.

Also note that they only stock the 3/8" variety. I use that tubing in the 1/2" i.d. 3/4" o.d. and that and the size that petras sells are the only two kinds of norprene I'd use. Otherwise the walls are too thin and it will kink.

Finally with the 3/8" norprene that petras sells you WILL NEED those smartcoils to prevent kinking.
