Right - I have had it. I want a water cooling set up im sick and tired of the noise. Money is NOT an option so here goes... I know what to do and how to do and what i need but what models? I would like most parts to be dangerden seen as a lot of people use them and have great comments on them but what about the radiators? Where do they fit? Inside the case and what size do i need.

At current my ThermalTake BT will cool my 3.4Ghz overclocked to 4Ghz CPU down to 38c idle and 57c top load. Can i expect better with water? If so i need help with what parts are best im no plumber so i dont know what the hell i need

:withstupi

CPU - LGA 775 P4
GPU - 6800

So some help would be great the site of choice for people to choose products from is http://www.coolercases.co.uk. They have a great choice of items a lot of dangerden and a custom kit builder.

So in advance thanks and if you can link to the product(s). Thanks

If money is no option then go and get one of the more expensive kits available, you are no plumber so there is no need to worry, all the bits and pieces will be in the kit so build and enjoy. You will get better temps with water cooling.

I agree that if you're not worried about money and don't want to make a hobby of it, just get one of the high-end kits. I don't know what's available in the UK, but the Apex Extreme, Danger Den, and ThermalTake BigWater 475 are all reasonable choices, depending upon your preferences and existing equipment.

Tell us more, and we can bury you in advice:

1. What case will you use? (link please)

2. Do you want it internal (out of sight) or would you be willing to have an external radiator in exchange for cooler temps?

3. How important are performance (temps) and noise?

If you follow directions (leak test, etc.) and are thorough, you'll be pretty safe.

Hope this helps--the Rep button is on the lower left.

OK thanks...

1. What case will you use? (link please)

Gigabyte Aurora OR Thermal Take Tsunami OR CM Staker

http://www.coolermaster.com/index.ph...er%20810%20ATX

2. Do you want it internal (out of sight) or would you be willing to have an external radiator in exchange for cooler temps?

Would like it internal... i guess i could fit a huge radiator inside the stacker case... But anyway..

3. How important are performance (temps) and noise?

Noise VERY the computer is located in my sleeping quarters LOL at current the XFX gfx fans sound like a jet AHH!!

ok following is my proposal

1. the cm stacker (coz i have personally looked at it and liked it)
2. i would definitely opt for external radiator like the FAQ says
3. that is entirely your definition but consider that if you have too much noise you are not going to enjoy your games and movies too much

if u want quietness and performance, i propose that you get the stacker with a mag pump (look up jarzino's latest post) and then with a sunon high cfm fan. i heard they are quite quiet. as for the radiator i propose that you get a bigger radiator with one 120mm fan installed. this way you can minimize the noise due to the fan and you can always add fans if you think the performance is not sufficient.

Or you could just get one of these. Less work for you.
