SwifTech Apex Ultra Kit + MCW60 GPU block
Cost me about just under £190 shipped, but i have read that in the US you can buy all the parts on there own and get it cheaper but thats complete different in UK, as far as my research whent so check that out first.

All in all this was only my first W/C setup but i must admit it did all seem to go well for me and i had no trouble, i leak tested it for 8 hours and there was no leaks i think thats due to SwiftTech supplylying it with 7/16" tubeing and every thing had 1/2" barbs so you get a nice snug fit. only prob i had was geting the tubing onto the pump which all i had to do was heat the tube up in boiling watter for a min so it slid on. every thing else fitted like a dream and i will say its a must for beginners/midrange over clockers.

i have not yet done any clocking on this yet but my load CPU temp droped from around 50c to about 35/36c both were measured in dual prime. Also i could finally get my graphice card to run at 624 core and 700 mem without any artifacts or game glitches.

Hope this helps, PM me for any questions

I have a Danger Den Monster kit for TigerDirect.com - $399.99 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...179&CatId=1057

Mine came with:
* TDX CPU waterblock (with #4 accelerator nozzle and adapters for all processor types)
* 2 x Maze4 GPU "Low Profile" Acetal water blocks (for Narrow profile SLI Motherboards Only such as the Lanparty nF4 SLI )
* 2 x 8 Pack OCZ Ram Sinks
* Black Ice Pro3 Radiator (with 3 x 120mm Sunon fan)
* Poly Bay Reservoir
* D-5 12v Pump
* ½" Tygon Tubing (10)
* Arctic Silver 5
* 4oz Super Coolant Mix
* All Necessary Fittings and Mounting Hardware

I bought on my own:
* 1 gallon of distilled water $0.60

Total : 400.59

Well this is my first water cooling kit and so far I'm loving it. It tooks me 2 days to set up. First I needed a place to mount the radiator and water pump. I have a mid-case so it was kinda hard to find a spot to put the radiator and pump.. I ended cutting out a rectangular section from the top of the case and mounted the radiator and fan there so it would suck out are from parts not watercooled. The Sunon fans are extremly loud and I am thinking about replacing them with much quieter fans. Even though they are loud, I usually leave only 1 running and it cools the water down suffiently. I had to cut another bit out of the case to pass the 3/4" tubing inside. With the small case, things started to get cramped up pretty fast.

The fit and finish of the products were very good and the instructions were good. The installation of the water blocks were easy and took around 1/2 an hour making sure everything was ok. Putting the tubing in were a bit tricky since I needed to make sure none of it kinked. The reservoir was easy to install but didn't take the regular screws used for everything else. They even put a sealent tape around the treads for the ports!

When I first fired up the system, I had to go online to find out how to get rid of all the bubbles in the system. The kit itself didn't provide any, not even the website to find the instructions. After I got all the air bubbles out, I noticed a leak in the Maze 4 GPU. It seemed that they didn't tighten the inlet and outlet all the way. After I sealed it up and started the system again, I noticed a leak in the radiator. The ports again were not tightened again and did not have any sealent tape. I sealed it off and started up the system again... 5 minutes later I spot a leak coming from the reservoir from all 3 of the ports. Even though it already had the sealent tape around the treads, IO put a bit more and put some gasket sealent around each port of the reservoir, radiator, and water blocks. Finally the leaks were gone for now.

I start tightening down the water blocks and let the system run over night. The next morning I wake up to find a little pool of water at the bottom of my case... It took my around 20 minutes to find it was coming from the TDX CPU water block, and another 2 hours to find that it was coming from the seals around the 2 pieces of plexiglass smushed together. I put some gasket sealent around it and let the system run for another 2 hours. But it still leaked. It took me around an hour of testing it out to realise that I was tightening the water block so much that the plexiglass would bend slightly and break the seal. After that, it was smooth sailing from there.

Now, everything is running smoothly, and there is just a slow leak from the Reservoir in which the water dries on the cd writer before another drop is formed. I plan of fixing this next time I replace the water. My temps with 1 fan on are around 35 degrees and with all 3 around 33. All in all I think this is a great kit and the leaks could have been prevented if I spent the time looking at all the seals and making sure they were sealed.
