That is one of the only kits I would endorse. Great for beginners and it's not totally effing worthless.

Ok seeing that you have a Q6600 ima help you out sense i just WC'ed mine a few days ago!

I have done many WC kits and think that many will agree just do it right the first time so you save money. 2 months down the line that kit will most likely not be sufficient to you any more!

Ill try to help ya go cheep and also tell you what i reccomend!

|Water Pump| DD-CPX1 12V Pump http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0263317
Or i recomend a D5 http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0264900

|DD Fill port| only like $12 bucks

|Radiator|Heck you could get this for only $27 and it would do the job! http://www.dangerden.com/store/produ...&cat=84&page=1
Or i Recomend this one for only $35 http://www.dangerden.com/store/produ...&cat=84&page=1

|Water Block| I am using a DD 775TDX Now i was all about the Swiftech Apogee and Apogee GT. The Swiftech Block i have seen as low as $38 at http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/swapexpebl.html but right now its $42.95

now hoping that you have fans for the radiator laying around just order 10-15 foot of 1/2 tubing from any of the stores that i linked. Now your done and have only spent $126 for the cheeper things i listed! Add like $20 for the 1/2 Hose and a few clamps from SideWinder! BOOM your done have a sweet kit and its ready for more!

I would recommend getting the D5 pump if you ever plan on adding more to the loop you will not need to upgrade.

Hope this helps!

My temps around 28c idle and 34c full load! @ stock clocks
