have i got all the right parts for custom water cooling?

I would Like To try out custom water cooling and am wondering if I have all the right parts, I would like to hard line tube it and I would probably only be connecting the CPU and not the GPU as i'm trying to keep it budget.

reservoir/pump: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01DTW19OQ/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A1EAFB7VLN7U8K&psc=1 its also a pump

    i have a complete list of EVERYTHING you will need in a new video I made last night. It really will answer all your questions. The part you want starts at about the 59 seconds mark and then goes into fittings and EVERY tool you will need at 4:39. please let me know if it helped you via a comment on youtube.

  2. oh and i thought i wanted to save money too and only do CPU, but cooling the GPU is great for those high temps, and it looks great too having tubes go everywhere. Dont cheap out on the pump and res either. Get a good pump/res, like swiftech MPC or ek's d5. you can buy them seperate like I did if you want, or buy them as a combo. And i too learned from just watching videos, but there were questions i still had, so i wanted to address those in my video.

    didnt need it myself

    but pretty decent guide well done gave it a thumbs up
  4. 1. you have no fittings listed.
    2. there is a compatibility issue. the worst thing you can do in a liquid loop, is to mix metals (copper with aluminum especially).
    I'd strongly recommend against getting into liquid with less than 250-300 pounds budget.
