I'd like to add a little summary

1. Pumps

High pressure, hi flow, low heat dump (you don't want another heat source). low noise. For a good price/performance ratio, Laing D5

2. Radiators

Must have low air flow resistance, ie, low flow fans, aka Silent fans, can qualify
Low water flow resistance.

Personally, I don't use the most famous brands.

3. Reservoirs

Any container, preferably one that keep the pressure in. If you need an open tub, have a considerable depth to help keep the pressure and make sure the hoses inlets and outlets and sunk at the bottom. And watch the water level.

Personally, I use a few of them in my loop that keeps the pressure in.

4. Wateblocks

No specifics. Sensitive argument here.

Basically, anything that is very resistive, make sure you get a fairly good pump.

Personally, I use Cathar's original G4


5. Tubings

To each his own.

My personal preference is Clearflex or Tygon. Good to manuver within the case and once attached to the barbs, it give a bite.

6. Coolant

Any deionised water. But personally i wouldn't mind if there's more bling bling because
I've always believe that a W/C setup is very cool looking. Those cool UV coolants looks good, but no green for me.

Hi i was wondering if there's any difference if i were to use industrial demineralised water vs the usual distillated water?

Bro, I'm using a 400l/Hr water pump by Gigabyte, but somehow my systems are still running at around 50 degrees C... Any advice to push it down?

Just curious to know if there is any big different between these 2 loop

Pump -> RAD-> CPU BLK -> NB/SB BLK -> Reservoir
Pump -> CPU Blk -> NB/SB Blk -> RAD -> Reservoir

And i see most post is Pump -> CPU Blk -> NB/SB Blk -> RAD -> Reservoir

Which one is more effective?

I don't know much about water cooling but I guess it is due to the temperature of the liquid in the reservoir. If the RAD is behind, both reservoir and pump will be using cooler liquids compare to RAD after pump.

RE:

It is the fastest way to cool the CPU. To prevent the refrigerant, it is most far from effective. It is to build a pain in the ass, and there are no commercial systems for long / short-term use.

LN2 is currently used in O / Cing very short notice, because it cooks down so quickly. Basically, they are equipped with a copper-pot mounted on the CPU with LN2 poured into the cup every few seconds / minutes of the cooked part to replace. It lasts only as long as you pour LN2 around ...
