I am a custom loop noob! I want to go all out for my next PC build. All of the parts in the list are overkill, no compromise. I do not want to go with a single 120mm aio radiator. I was thinking of have 2 120mm rads, one in the front, and one in the back with a flat pump res combo unit on the bottom where the fans would go. I would like to water cool both cpu and gpu in one loop with hard line tubing. I plan on getting all of the parts needed from EKWB. I have never done a custom loop before and I know building in a smaller case is harder, but I am up for the challenge. I have a $500 budget on all of the water cooling parts. If the budget goes over by a little bit, that's fine. I do also want the liquid cooling parts to be RGB, compatible with asus aura sync.
I would like to go with nickel and plexi, I do know that mixing metals is bad, so I would like to go with those two. If there are better metals that I could go with, let me know! I will build around them. I do not know which tubing and fittings to use. I have a feeling I should go with petg tubing, I would like to have 90 degree bends and use as few fittings as possible.
Edit: metals will now be nickel + plexi!
