    you need 3/8 if you want to include the motherboard block. So if your kit is not 3/8 you need to order 3/8 barb and tubing.

    Swiftech H2O-X20 Elite Series. you could do a triple 120mm for $280. I went with Swiftech Apogee Drive II with pump and there Maelstrom 5 1/4" Dual Bay Reservoir. I got a Black Ice GT Stealth 360 Radiator - Red, CORSAIR AIR SERIES SP 120 QUIET EDITION 120MM HIGH STATIC PRESSURE FANS with monsoon compression fittings.Then when I get my graphic cards {cant decied} if I'm going with two ASUS MATRIX-HD7970 or two ASUS GTX680-DC2T. Which ever I do get I'm doing a full body water block on both of them. I might still need to get another dual 120mm radiator. So after It said and done I'll have about $700 + in water cooling. What so cool about the Swiftech Apogee Drive II with pump built in is It will do let you do everything that you want to do.

    you have to change that too.
    if you want to include the NB ( north bridge ) you have to use 3/8 ID ( inner diameter ) on the tube.
    the tubing you want is 3/8ID - 1/2OD ( 10/13mm )
    barb 3/8OD ( 10mm OD )
    i recomeded the 360 in case you wanted to add a GPU for example to the loop laters.
    that way you dont have to buy another radiator, unless you add a second GPU.

    Is there any way to go for a "cheap" option?

    you need 6 barbed fitting. 1 combo pump/res 240 or 360 radiator 3 or 6 fans ( push or pull or push/pull ) tubing (2-3 meters) zip ties coolant CPU block TIM ( termal paste )
    thats what you need for a custom loop, custom water IS and WILL be expensive, you will add on it in time, a few chages here and some there+++.
    or else then its closed systems like corsairs or others.
