So I am new to water cooling (at least the build yourself ones), and I have only used the actual AIO coolers. Now I am kinda OCD about temperatures which is why I want to go with a quad-120mm (480 mm) radiator starter kit. I want to make sure I am doing this right...I will list the parts...all feedback is welcome...

Part List:

Kit: XSPC Raystorm RX480 V3 Extreme Universal CPU Water Cooling Kit w/ D5 Photon and Free Dead-Water

Fluid: PrimoChill Base Intensified™ - High Purity Deionized Water - 1 Gallon - Clear (PC-BASE128)

Kill Coil: IandH Silver KillCoils - Antimicrobial .999 Fine Silver Tubing / Reservoir Strip

Fan Controller Hook Up (With NZXT FN V2 120mm [2 Watts per Fan, Each Channel Supports 15 Watts]): Darkside 3-Pin Dual Radiator Push / Pull 4x Fan Y Splitter Cable - Jet Black Sleeved

Dye: Mayhems Dye - 15mL - Dark Blue

Thanks in advance.

First of all make sure you have something to add to kill any algae that could grow in the water. Second make sure your motherboard is COMPATIBLE with that chip or it will destroy it.

For the fluid you really only need deionized water. That's a good kit that will work.

Finally check this guy out he has really good advice of water cooling. https://www.youtube.com/user/Jayztwocents/videos

Don't bother getting special "premium" water. Normal distilled water from grocery stores are like a few bucks for a gallon.

The linked one goes to a kit with a bay res, but the text says with a D5 Photon which is a tube res. If you have a choice, stick with the tube res. Everything else looks fine.

Not bottled since that has minerals and stuff in it. You want distilled (some places call it deionized)

Okay, I think I might go with a different setup I will post it up here, it is going to be done down the road from now but be alot more expensive.
