I have had a Swiftech Ultra for 3 years and it's the best 275.00 I have ever spent. It came with the 655 pump and 1/2" tubing along with the 120 radiator. I wouldn't trade it for the world.

www.swiftech.com

go to kits and check it out

My temps @3.5 are 20c idle and 35 load

Depends on what you mean by kits. Thermaltake, koolance and other brands' kits are useless garbage. If you will give me a budget to work with, I can tell you what parts you'll need for a custom wc'ing kit though.

Only kits I can recommend are swiftech kits and the kits you can get at www.petrastechshop.com

Well I dont really have a budget I just want to piece it together. I mean like maybe a couple hundred bucks now but if i had to build it I could to more over time. I just dont know where to shop for the stuff I hate ordering offline.

That's what I was about to say, it depends what kits you are looking at?

I would also only suggest the Swiftech or Petra's Tech custom kits. The others are not worth your time or money. They are the suck.

What is your budget and what do you want to cool?

Im just looking to cool CPU and maybe GPU later when I go crossfire.
post #7 of 8
CPU is no problem, but with your gpu you can't crossfire, just a heads up. Your board is crossfire compatible, but you have an nvidia card so you can only sli. Which you can't do on your board. But I'll build you a kit.

Radiator

Pump

CPU block

Reservoir


GPU block

Ya I know the 9600gt is going into my other rig and im buying the 4000s series when they come out. Thats why I said I was going to cross fire later on so I just pretty much want a set up for cpu only right now but also be able to ad gpus later.
