rmorse27The one thing I can tell you is let the pump run for 24 hours to test for leaks before firing up pc, cover the components with rags or paper towels incase of leaks, I f everything is ok next day fire up and enjoy. Rule of thumb 1 rad per cpu or gpu depending on your set up.
tattude69i would suggest a good fan controller for the fans and the pump. When i first went water cooling i was using splitters and trying to use the motherboard, results were hit or miss. it was suggested here on the forums to try Aquacomputer OCTO. After almost a year i could not be happier best money i spent $56 for OCTO and $10 for RGB splitty (4 fan hub also allows control of Corsair RGB fans without corsair software,Hubs or lighting node). I am able to run 10 fans 1 DDC pump and 4 temperture sensors. you can used fixed rpms or set fan curves using your choice of Temp inputs (cpu or gpu). This only works with PWM fans and pumps. Welcome to the club. Far as leak testing my wife bought me an MSI MPG Z490 Carbon EK X mobo and it came with an EK Leak tester. ($40) It was so easy to use and by the time i put water in my system i had no concern of a leak took 2 hours vs 24 hour leak test. Will never go back to the 24 hr leak test. This forum is one of the best i have found for everything pc.Thums up 👆 to the Whole Community

Nex_Lupus just looked into it myself probably is a metric vs imperial. Which sucks for me, I cannot find any stock ekwb tubing... they label them as 9.5mm and 12.7mm id/od instead of standard 10/13 (even tho that is what they mainly state it as)

ineverevenThe material choices are not ideal but for an AIO it's not as big of a deal as non of the parts will be exposed to air which can cause faster oxidation/corrosion. Also way easier to replace if it doesn't perform as well after a few years.
