water cooling advice

hi, hope i picked the right category, recently i switched from console to PC, i have majority of the PC parts i want where i am happy, but i have caught the water cooling bug now and wanted a few specific questions answered.

1. Is there such thing as too much tubing to the point where the loop wont be effective? i want to go crazy with a glass loop but was wondering if there is a limit per pump for example, picked glass cos it looks better with fluids from what i have seen.

2. haven't made a decision on fittings yet but LED fittings look cool, i have little experience on power wiring but what i was wondering was where would i plug all my pumps, my LED fittings,fans, into? i know motherboards have some connectors but i don't know how to do research on it since i don't know what to look for hope i have explained enough.

i7 6700 (will be upgrading to a "k" processor closer to water loop build)

msi z270 gaming 7

msi gtx 1070

16 gb ram @1069MHz (would this ram be subtitle it was passed on to me)

256GB Crucial

1tb Samsung SSD 850 EVO

  1. there is no such thing as "to much tubing length" unless it is all vertical - pumps have "head pressure" parameter. But the use of turns (90 or 180) implies flow restrictions. So unless you want to build a "showoff" system with multiple pumps, you'd be better to make the loop as short as possible without unnecessary turns/bends.

    there are powered fan hubs that the lights/fans can be connected to.
  2. thanks so much for that :)
