Need help finishing kit off...

Well I just ordered some stuff from SpecialTech, I ended up getting:

XSPC R120-Single 120mm (V) Radiator

XSPC X20 Extreme CPU Block with 1/2" Barbs

4 Metres (will that be enough ?) of XSPC High Quality 1/2" Tubing

Costing £40 including delivery overall.

So I basically need a pump with 1/2" barbs and a reservoir with 1/2" barbs. No idea on the pump front but I want something relatively quiet and cheap. I'll also need a reservoir and was thinking of the XSPC 5.25" drivebay one. Oh and im also going to order a few more barbs for the radiator and so clipy-things for them.

Also, with regards to a pump, do I need some extra hardware for it to turn on and off with the PC ?

Thanks in advance

the DDC & D5 pumps are the most popular

i'm using a D5 with the speed set to lvl 5 and i find it quiet

a lot of people say the DDC with a custom top is the best performer...

but there is some debate on the reliability when used with a custom top, since the different top is allowing the pump to run outside of it's intended spec

both DDC and D5 are 12V pumps and just connect to the PSU using a molex, so they just turn on with the PC

E4300. Maybe an 8800GTS if I can get rid of my X1950XT. I'll get a Swifttech MCW60 and another 120 rad if I do.

The D5 and DDC are a tad too expensive. What about:

Alphacool AP700 (700 l/h)

Alphacool AGB-Eheim 12v 600 Station (600 l/h)

Thermaltake CL-W0103 Aquabay M5 Liquid Cooling Alarm System (500 l/h)

XSPC X20 Compact Pump with 1/2" Barbs (450 l/h)

12V X2O Compact 400 (400 l/h)

It's expensive, but it's well worth it. But, if you go with one of those, then go with the Alphacool AP700, I've read good things about it as well.

Looks like I'll get the AP700 then, the D5/DDC realy is too much money for me (being a student FTL ) but Ive read some forums posts about the AP700 being very quiet and pretty decent.

700l/h should be able to handle an 8800GTS + E4300 OC + 2 120mm Radiators right ?

700l/h isnt everything u want, The pressure at which it pumps the water is imp..

but i guess it wont have a problem cooling the components u mention .
