hi there im looking to purchase water cooling for my next build (broadwell-e) and its my first time with custom loop water cooling. After doing some research online i picked out some parts and want your guys thoughts on them. i also need help on deciding on some fittings. so i was told i need a radiator with thickness under 35mm for it to fit on the top of my H440. so please tell me what you think and if i should swap any of the parts out for another.

I'm pretty sure the photon res has to be laid down doesn't it?

That tubing is some of the best flex tubing though.

And for a waterblock my personal preference is EK

Have you looked into the alpha cool series of rads they are pretty good.

But all in all it looks fine

Don't forget your fittings

Overall, you listing looks good.

If its a single CPU and GPU only loop, that 360 should be ok. Maybe if you can add another 240mm in the front if its possible would help you achieve better delta temps or a possible SLI down the road. Make sure you've done measurements and seen examples of other builds with the same case.

Depending on your budget, barbs or compression fittings. Make sure you get the right size fittings based on the tubing you get. Good choice on tubing btw.

Also, I hope you've done enough research on dyes. We don't promote dyes here as they'll stain and clog your loop if not maintained properly.

It should be vertically positioned.
