  1. i am planning on buying a new case with built in coolin system...

    https://www.vip-computers.com/UK/shop/produDetailPage.aspx?sku=0618

    then adding on to the system

    2/3 memory coolers (depending on wat it comes wif)
    1/2 gpu water blocks (depending on wat it comes wif again)
    1/2 hd coolers (also depending on wat it comes with)
    and then mayb another radiator,
    i am wondering if the resivouir and the pump will be powerful+ enough to power all this or will it need a bigger res? -.- please help thanks.

    You'd be wasting money if you're watercooling your HDD and memory.

    The thermalright HR-07 would cool your mem down more than any mem watercoolers around.

    HDDs don't need cooling, cept maybe a fan. The main source of heat isn't where the watercooling pipes are routed neither, so that should tell you how much watercooling would help.

    Some people say that the NB doesn't really need to be watercooled. I kinda second that notion, assuming you've got good aircooling.

    Don't even start suggesting southbridge cooling.
