It all depends on what you want from this computer, do u want it to be a fun project or something that you just chuck together quickly without much planning (of the loop, not counting the research time for the hardware, just time for the loop, tubing, coolant or distilled water, killcoils or PT nuke, etc etc).
Imo proper water cooling is a bunch of fun, just need to be careful tongue.gif, temps are better aswell if you plan to OC high.
