120x1 od radiator for 100 watts. So if you have 600 watts, you need two 120x3 radiators. We have stickies that explains a lot of the parts that is at the top of this forum. Best to spend a few weeks figuring out, ask a few knowledgeable questions, post your parts list and we'll help adjust. Took me three months before I ordered my first part, it's a hobby.

No I don't know what you mean, this is the internet. Every custom loop is different. We have 20-30 helpful articles and many build logs and thousands of running threads where you can learn a ton. Videos really are just pretty pictures.

It took me 3 months before I bought my first part. Take your time. It's your stuff, it's yours to do well with or ruin.

Tell you what, you use a good UK watercooling store, and make a list of the basics. Rads/pump/res/fans/blocks. Ones you think you can use. Then we can talk about hose/fittings/liquid etc.

We can't do it for you, it's the internet. I'm sure there is someone in the UK will to spend 3-4 hours at $50 an hour to pick your parts and another $300-500 to build it. Someone local you can talk to face to face.
