All I want is something comparable to my AC64 Pro. I don't really care if its a kit, I just find it unlikly to get a setup for under 100$. I want a kit that I can upgrade so I can put a new/better radiatior or whatever in when I get some money. $$$$$$+now=bad ..... $$+now+$$+later=good.....

I agree with Ira-k yet again, because its going to be alot of hassle to just randomly add parts. Its almost like a overhual when you do it because you have to bleed the lines and then cut new tubeing for bigger better parts and then figure out how to mount it. You might have to reconfigure everything just to add one part because of a number of reasons like air flow or something. So it will save you alot of time if you get something your content with the first time around that will last you at least a year.

truthfully there is no standard in watercooling, because the parts and your rig is unique

I would like to save my money but I work a seasonal job as in, I make more money in the summer. So in the winter I make enough to get by and a little extra cash. So I could get that in the summer, but my wife says she'll spend around a 120$ on me for christmas. I was thinking a Water setup or a Opti 165 if the price drops around Xmas .
