If your planning on buying a kit I would suggest the swiftech series kits. They are awesome. I own the swiftech premium h20-120 and am very happy with its results. The Apex Ultra could only be better, I did a mini-review on it, ill go find it real quick.

Here it is: http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...0-results.html

Here's the usual list for a well rounded custom setup:

Danger Den D5 Pump
Swiftech Apogee
Danger Den MAZE 4 GPU + RAMsinks
Bonneville Heater Core + Fans
Res or T-line (I like T-lines)

Read as many post as you can. Just get a general idea of what goes where, why you want a certin part and all that fun stuff. Most of it is just research and we are more than happy to answer any specific questions you may have

yeah snerps about right except i wouldnt go with a bonny unless your trying to save money which doesnt look like your doing at the moment so i would just get a good 120x2 rad - itll be much easier to mount and you wont be having to jeri rig it onto our case

personally i like res's but thats me, and i would build my own setup instead of buying a kit its alot of fun actually and you learn alot

this is what i would probably get
cpu block
http://www.crazypc.com/products/93031.html

gpu (i would get the reguler profile one if you dont need the shorty
http://www.crazypc.com/products/93655.html

pump- these things last forever
http://www.crazypc.com/products/9336.html

rad
http://www.dangerdenstore.com/produc...&cat=85&page=1

res 9 these are cool and dont take up alot of space
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/22...?tl=g30c97s168

other stufff, go with 1/2"id tubing and fittings , allways stay with the same type of metal, use tygon-it is flexible and doesnt kink up on ya to bad
as far as additives i like waterwetter found at your local auto zone

this is what iwould prob get alot of people here will change some of the stuff here depending on your price range and performance wantted

Snerps list is hard to beat...If you want a different rad, just for the looks of it and one that still performs well this is a good one.....http://www.dangerdenstore.com/produc...2&cat=5&page=1

Heatercores work very well. You can buy them with barbs and shrouds so that isn't much of a hassle. All the black ice rads are great, but if you want a rad I would go with the 240 GT here. It's the newest revision of the black ice series. Or, if you want to drop some cash, you could go for a Thermochill rad

Masterkleer Tubing is great tubing and it cost $.49/ft as compared to $3/ft. It's almost as flexible as tygon at 1/6 the price.

I would look into the Swiftech Storm Rev. 2 CPU waterblock...it's built like a friggin tank. I have one, I'm just waitin until the time is right to install my H2O...I haven't surely decided which I'm going to use though, DD Maze 4 GPU block, or the Swiftech MCW60 GPU Block....I have both though...I'm leaning toward Swiftech...=)

...........Hey Snerp I love that Masterkleer....And I didn't know they had come out with the GT Extreme...I was just thinking about The GT Stealth...Even though you did link me just a couple weeks ago....Drat your right again........:::: Hardware Labs - Gen Two ::::
