I'd suggest a kit for starters but your welcome to mold your own with enough knowledge, just know this, one leak can really screw up your comp so take the utmost care to not do so, then again I bet you know that already.

This is my favorite place to get anything for water cooling. They ship internationally however you just need to contact them prior to ordering.

They have great prices on everything and i bought both my case and my entire water cooling loop from them.

How are theyre too many complications?

Besides, they are the best guys to buy anything w/c related from. They have the best prices, and carry incredibly hard to find components.

Besides, they have preconfigured kits that beat the **** out of any other preconfigured kits available.

SO if you want to save some money and get the best possible loop, i would highly advise you to shop from them
