NVM, I read it wrong. 

 

You don't need fittings for the pump since it has a barb fitting on the pump top. 

Thanks man, just saved me $14.

I assume you already have coolant or are getting it somewhere else :P

I'm glad you learned from me lol. I bought fittings for mine and I was rather mad when I didn't need them. Make sure you buy some clamps to hold the tube on. I had to use cable ties since I didn't want to wait.

Personaly i would ditch the reservoir to and get a d5 top bay res d5 top will increase pump performance also, but yeah looks like you got everything right.

I checked this option out, but I don't have room for a dual bay res, otherwise I would've. Thanks for the suggestion.

Do i need coolant? Can I just go to local grocery store and buy distilled water?

for your first, yeah the distilled water is fine. plus buy enough for a rinse/flush for

the radiators. a biocide would be nice to fight fuzzy growths in the loop or a kill

coil since no nickel is in the loop.

fans?

Don't know what biocide/kill coil/nickel means? Do you have a link for info on that?

 

For fans, I have a bunch of Gentle Typhoon 2150 that I got a while back that I ended up not using.  Those should be fine?

Yeah don't forget to flush the radiator first before use their always solder flux in new radiators.

yea flush the rads, but xspc rads I've used are pretty clean.  and a distilled flush/leak check of your completed loop is always a good idea before you power up all your components.

No need to take the risk yeah its 50/50 usualy sometimes its clean sometimes its dirty and full of flux
