YOU ARE CORRECT SIR.....

IMHO though, the best coolant to use period, ThermalTake UV 1000. It's like liquid ecasty in a bottle...

+3 rep from me, for anything that can be made to coagulate like blood w/in 90 days...

What's amazing about this stuff is how it was made to act like a tire repair foam spray, but in liquid form... Perfect compliment to the ThermalTake BigWater kit. If you use this fluid, you never have to worry about springing a leak, it is self-sealing...

If you really want to see a little chemistry in action, introduce a KOOLANCE (100%) aluminum radiator into the mix.... Whooa Nelly, oh how I love the smell of GALVANIC corrosion in the morning....

Unless you're worried about poking holes in your tubing, I don't think this would apply seeing as most leaks spring from the fittings.

ok, got a message back from eVGA.

"Sir, although we can't guarantee that this will work and can also cause you to void your warranty if any water damage is cause by it. Any water block that fits the 8800 series card would be a fit for the 9600 gt. Thank You. EVGA Technical Support.
aka, any block that fits the 8800gt (the gtx and ultras are a different size because of the increased ram, right?) should fit my card.

suggestions?

It comes with pretty good instructions and it's very simple. Just have some AS5 to use as thermal grease.

when i've got the money, i'll be back - it'll take a few weeks to save some extra cash. once it's down to the wire, we'll go from there.

dumb question, and i think i know the answer. the tubing you suggested has a 7/16ths ID. why wouldn't i get a 1/2 ID, since i have everything with 1/2" barbs?
