If you're new to watercooling, I would strongly suggest you avoid using a custom kit since you don't really know what you're doing. Instead, start off by purchasing a closed loop kit like the Corsair H50.

I'd stay away from the Thermaltake kits. Swiftech has better kits. What is your budget?

do not buy thermaltake! I built my first computer at L/C it too. I have had no problems but if you are going to do L/C you MUST do a lot or research on the parts and procedures. and take your time.

also use nonconductive fluids instead of water - my preference is feser 1.
