So like the title says, I'm looking at putting in a custom water loop, just for the CPU at the moment. It's a 10700k in a MSI MEG Z490 Unify, powered by a Corsair RM850x if anyone needs to know, but my main query was whether or not all of these parts would be compatible together as far as fit and materials.

Corsair Hydro X Series Waterblock (1200/AM4)
Thermaltake Pacific 300ml 5-Speed Adjustable D5 Pump/Reservoir Combo
Corsair Hydro X Series Xt Hardline 12mm Tubing
EKWB EK-CoolStream SE 360 Radiator
Fittings

I would ask you to stick to one brand, i.e, Corsair's lineup just to keep things simple. Other than that, yes they will work in tandem. Have you planned how the loop will be plumbed? Case for the watercooling loop?

The case is a XPG Battlecruiser. 360mm radiator is going on the front as intake, with the pump/res mounted on the 120mm fan mount in the bottom of the case. Once I get my hands on my new gpu and a matching waterblock I'll probably add either a 120mm radiator to the back exhaust or a 240 on the top as exhaust. I just noticed that my 10700k runs around 195F on Prime95 small FFT's, so the 240 AIO obviously isn't going to cut it once I start overclocking.
