Lets take some baby steps here. Figure out your water stuff before you even think of messing with Plets. Kits won't cool a big pelt and I hear you are better off with an older WB for pelts...anyways TEC cooling uses pelts.

Anyways back on to the watercooling. Passive means you aren't using a fan or it's made to be used without a fan. The 80 and 120 are the size of fans it fits. The 80 fits one 80mm fan, the 120 fits one 120mm fan, the dual 120 fits two 120mm fans and...you get the point. Bigger is better as far as rads go.

whew, now that i got that out of the way

so TEC is like the process, Pelts are the physical beings...

ok, i'll look around, see what i can dig up..

exactly why would you need/not-need a res? what does it exactly do? just make it easier to add more liquid?

A shroud is just basially a metal or plastic square frame that has self tapping screw holes in it mount your rad on one side and a fan on the other side, it helps the air flow by moving the fan a little way's away from the radiator....You can also use them to mount your rad on the fan hole at the back of your case...Swiftech has a nice one called the Radbox....I think it is universal.It will fit 80mm 92mm& 120mm fan holes..Some people use a shroud on one side to mount rad to case and another on the other side of the rad to mount fans to....

You're right about the shroud. It is used to eliminate the dead spot that the center of the fan causes, which then increases flow. The rad box isn't so much a shroud as it is a mount for the rad.

is it that 3/8 is the best sized tubing, as it allows alot of water flow, thus cooler temps?

thats what my friend said, hes not a pro at watercooling, tho he did set up his own... he had money to burn, lol..
