With my case, $850.

My loop isn't in my sig rig

A little north of $1K. Decided to buy the best that I can afford at that moment.

I should of paid 2-300 usd. However, watercooling can turn into something akin to a crack addiction. Cooler res's, more rads, insanely expensive fans, fittings.....barbs...wait no barbs, compression fittings are way more dope....oh but wait I want quick disconnects too. I like this tubing with color additive. Fahk, I hear it clogs up your rig...better get colored tubing. but wait I also wand that t-virus res.......Damn, I want an ekfc....but I just bought 2 more cards so I'll need 3 gpu blocks....they just released a chipset block....gonna buy it. More equipment now better get more compression fittings. Damn now I need a bigger case to house all my h2o equipment. I bet some ppl are saying to themselves " How much have I spent?? Fahk, I think I spent over a grand but I have so much crap I don't really know. All I know is I need some more..." lol Neurotic tendencies of the pc geek!

Haha, that sums it up, I didn't know how much I actually spent until I posted it on here.

I'm running three loops so 3x everything plus a new spare pump just incase I might need one some day.

Guessing around $800 in the system then another $500 in water blocks CPU, GPU's and motherboard.

Actually I only spent around 100$ & I still have 2-3 things that I can sell to make that even lower.

Gotta find them deals on Craigslist & OCN marketplace. My loop took 3 months to finish, but I think paying 60-100$ for a good CPU loops is worth it.

Don't let anyone tell you that you need to spend $300+ to get one. Gotta find awesome people willing to help.

I designed and built my own water blocks for the CPU and for the non-reference Asus 6950 cards, so if we're including billable man hours, my cooling has cost me a little over $2000... but it was worth it!
