So I've been wanting to watercool my system for a while now and I've finally managed to get a parental outlay authorized. I want to build a 1/2" ID system. Below is the parts list I was considering. Any comments/suggestions would be appreciated as this will be my first watercooling attempt.

Frozen CPU Black Ice Xtreme 2 or Danger Den Double Core (depends on how much I really want a blue rad)
Frozen CPU 3.5" dual bay res

possible later MCW20 and MCW50. The reason I like the Swiftechs is the fit and finish, and the sturdiness of the blocks.
