Raid0 is the configuration in which data is written to ( and read from) 2 drives instead of one, decreasing both read and write times , making for a faster machine. The down side is ( in theory) that you double the probability of a HDD failure.

I would recommend speccing your own custom kit up from that site.

I specced up these:

XSPC Custom Kit Builder
- (1) CPU Block XSPC X2O Extreme CPU Block
- (2) Chipset Block None
- (3) Graphics Card Block XSPC X2O VGA Block
- (4) HDD Block None
- (5) Pump 12V Laing D4 Water Pump (1/2" ONLY)
- (6) Reservoir XSPC Clear Bay Reservoir
- (7) Radiator XSPC RS120 Black
- (7a) Fans None
- (8) Hose Size XSPC High Flex Hose 1/2"
- (9) Hose Length 3 Meters
- (A1) Thermal Paste None
- (A2) Coolant None
- (A3) Water Additive 1 Glycol Antifreeze 50ml
- (A4) Water Additive 2 None
- (A5) Hose Clips PVC Plastic Clips (1/2" Only)

That would cost £125, and you'd have a much better pump

Thanks a lot, how would I go about putting it altogether without breaking something?

For a quad core I would recommend at least a 120.2 radiator.

If you plan on adding a GPU or chipset coolers to the loop I'd get a 120.3 rad.

The XSPC R120-T looks pretty sweet.

Also the rads from Thermochill and Hardware Labs are considered to be some of the best.

Thats just a basic idea, have a play and stuff

Its pretty easy TBH - the barbs screw into the holes in each part, then you push the tubing all the way over the barb, and then fill it up from a T or fillport...

You'd be better off asking on that shop's forum on which parts to pick TBH

In my opinion there's no point in spending more for a case where you're basically buying the name and not the product. I don't see the point in paying a premium price for something with the Fatal1ty name on it, just to have the name there. You could always just put a Fatal1ty sticker on the case

That RAM is pretty good, but the price is not worth it in my opinion. A lot of good RAM modules can have their timings tightened down from 5-5-5-15 or 4-4-4-12 down to 4-3-3-5 without having to pay a premium price for it. Having the 1GHz stock speed is good though.

I would personally go for a PSU with dual or quad rails, to balance the load. This is especially important when dealing with a video card such as the 8800GTX.

Save money from the PSU and from a case and invest in something else, like a better video card, a better sound card, or even a better monitor. Prioritize and consolidate.
