Thanks for sugestions guys, i merely brought this kit to get me started in water cooling, it was something that was cheap and cheerful to get the job done and get me used to the parts involved. And being a kit it makes it easier to sell on ebay as there will be someone like me who wants to get started on a cheap kit before getting started on the big stuff.

I know that ill prolly end up changing most of the parts apart from the CPU block as the V3 has got cracking reviews and from what ive read its seems to be a really good block for the money.

Hope in the next week to maybe change the Rad atleast and maybe get an XSPC drive bay reservoir, would the pump be ok with say a XSPC RS240 Rad??

I use XSPC stuff because my mate at my local PC sore does me a really really good deal on the stuff.

Can someone explain to me the difference between a crossflow rad and a normal one?

the difference is the X-flow is a single pass rad while the normal rad is a due pass the theory is a single pass rad will have 1/2 the restriction of a dual pass one. single pass require a bit more thought when flow direction is concerned . hot in the top cold out the bottom
