    there are videos on youtube ... i dont think it will be that tough

    get a generic custom loop like the larcooler skywater 330 .. will cool just as same as the closed water loops .. costs approx 130$ ..

    I think it is no point, custom coolers are dead anyway.
    I will go with standard coolers.

    ^^ Still, get a good paste. Will help keep temps low. And get some silent fans, else the whirring will be annoying (since I'm assuming there isn't much ambient noise).

    You'll get stock cream on the heatsink. and if you have to detach the cooler for anything, it gets messed up. Get some, just in case.

    P.S - Silent fans.
