Depends what you are looking at, for AIO options Corsair, NZXT and such have really easy to use options. In terms of custom watercooling if it's your first loop a kit isn't a bad place to start off.

If you are just starting out do a lot of research before you start buying anything. To give you an idea a good quality custom loop (copper based) for CPU and GPU will start at around $500 USD.

If your talking about custom water loops then a good starting point would be a kit by EK.

The cheapest of which are the Aluminium kits like the A240G (for Nivida GPU's) and A240r ( for AMD cards) . This kit cools both CPU and GPU, has a single 240 rad, 2 fans, pump/res combo, tubing, and fittings. You just need to then buy the coolant.

 

now if we are talking AIO's ..dont. Unless ur have room for a 360mm AIO, dont bother, they aint worth it over a top end Air cooler.

500-1000$ is a decent price range to buy 'every' thing  you need. and  its just get more expensive the 'fancier' the parts you want are

If needed ek does offer alum rads in different sizes also.

i have a nzxt kraken m22 

and my mother board does not have 2 cpu fan port instead it has sys fan port.

so i read somewhere thae pump should always be running at constant rpm.

so i thougt of pluging it directly to my psu. is it safe?

The pump should be on the cpu fan header. The fans should be on a fan header. If you don’t have a way to plug the header into the psu correctly, no you should not be plugging it into the psu directly.

i didnt undestand . i have only one cpu fan header. And i have a sys fan header in my motherboard. 

And i have one doubt ,

1) should the rpm of the pump be constant

2) should it alwasys run 100%

So you have have 2 fan headers. I don’t see the issue. Run the fans off one and the pump off the other. 

 

Doesnt matter which speed you use. I’d imagine it only effects longevity. 

 

Run it at 40/50%. That’s what I do with my pumps.
