I am planning on water cooling my PC. It's gonna be my first time and I need some help. I've done my best to pick watercooling components (I've had the PC for about 2 years)

PC:
GPU: GIGABYTE GTX 970 G1 Gaming 4GB
CPU: Intel Core i7 4970K (planing to OC it by about 600-700MHz)
Case: Fractal Design Define S
RAM: 2x8GB

These are the PC specs. Here are the watercooling components I've picked: http://puu.sh/oIbV2/d19a6b9368.png
It's a link, as I can't be bothered to type them all down :) I will be doing the water cooling in 2-3 months, as I need to save cash up. My question is: Am I missing anything for the watercooling? If so, what is it? Also, any tips for installing it? Anything to stay away from?

Thanks in advance,
Alex

Thanks for the suggestion :) I'll sure check the thread you linked me. I will consider going 3x120mm rad. I was trying to cheap out on it and was sure a 2x120mm would be enough for 1 GPU and a CPU. Due to being able to save around 50 euro a month and I currently have only 200 euro on me, I decided not to include the Mobo, RAM, etc. I could try going for one of these http://www.aquatuning.us/water-cool...ool-nexxxos-cool-answer-360-ddc/xt-set?c=6459 but I'm not sure if I can add a GPU to this loop :/ Doing the loop I have in my original post would be sexier (I will probably do baby blue coolant and spray paint parts of the fans). Having a tall reservoir would make the build look nicer. I prefer having my case look kind of full. Not into empty looking cases. E.g https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/db/e1/74/dbe174ef2110686d9da7649fffccfbc6.jpg http://puu.sh/oJBKn/5a5c557082.jpg I can't afford watercooling like in the first picture, but you get the idea :) Thanks for the suggestion
