Yes, I do I have one but my old man burned out the capacitor and I haven't gotten around to order one from China (ebay). I did buy the drill bit to bore out the hole needed for a G1/4 tap so I have everything ready to go I just need that damn tap wrench too.

It really comes down how much you want to spend. For a cpu, a regular (~30mm) rad would do find. You can also go with a thick 240mm radiator. Fans, you have a ton of options for 120mm radiators. Most fans will work fine with low to medium fin density radiators. The higher density ones require higher rpm fans.
For radiators, most big player brands are good: XSPC, Alpahacool, Black Ice, Phobya, Magicool, EK, Swiftech, etc..
For fans: its even harder to pinpoint,. but consider what your budget is and if you need something with looks (ie leds, etc).
To throw you an idea (list):
-Swiftech Apogee HD Drive II + Swiftech MCP 35x
-Alphacool UT-60 360mm
-3 Corsair SP120 HP fans
-Your choice of fittings: Bitspower, Alphacool, Swiftech, Koolance, Enzotech (I have these), Phobya, EK, etc.
-Your choice of reservoir: Tube style (BP, EK, Alphacool, FrozenQ, etc), bay res.
The cpu block I listed above has the pump attached to it. You can also buy the block and the pump separate with traditional ports.
edit: here's a cpu round up review. If you want to research more options for cpu blocks:
Feel free to ask more questions. You can also post a thread in the water section if you want to keep it concentrated to your questions (this thread is busy and sometimes your questions and answers may get lost).Edited by wermad - 10/21/12 at 5:08pm
