I am looking to build my first custom cooling rig and was hoping to find some advice on sites to find parts and really any information or advice I could get from people with experience.
CPU: Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor - https://pcpartpicker.com/part/intel-cpu-bx80646i54690k
GPU: Sapphire Radeon R9 290 4GB Tri-X Video Card - https://pcpartpicker.com/part/sapphire-video-card-1003622sr
Case: Cooler Master Storm Stryker (White) ATX Full Tower Case - https://pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-case-sgc5000wkwn1
If anyone happens to know what exact block I need (my understanding is they are each made to fit specific cards), I am hoping to find clear blocks. I am also looking to run a light blue coolant (ideally one that is not transparent and that does glow) And I am looking for a clear reservoir that is clear and can be placed in the front optical drive panel on the case.
Side note: I want to hook up some LED lights inside the case, anyone know what kind of lights/attachments i need for this? Side side not: Anyone know of any kind of led or lcd sound visualizer that could be installed into the optical bay?
Thanks for any help or advice! Looking to make this my Christmas gift to myself
