I imagine buying a new res, pump, waterblock and tubing will not bethat hard but since this rad is already is such a convenient location id like to take advantage of it.
I tried doing some research but couldnt find to many stats on that radiator. Who makes it do you know and what size barbs are on it?

You can buy some new stuff pretty easily to upgrade. You can get 1/2 or 7/16 tubing for like $1 a foot. A swiftech Micro Res for around $20.. The Fuzion CPU block will run you around $60 and a new pump is really up to you price wise but dont skimp out on the pump.

The rad definetly looks like a cool placement but maybe check out petra for some price info or head over to xtremesystems.org forum for some other WC advice and help

NBD, just goofin, I think you just misunderstood what he was saying, that in order to beat Air you need a serious water system not just any off the shelf kit.
