im getting the thermaltake bigwater SE is there a way to get a vga block and cool with the water cuz it only got one cpu block and one tube to it so i need kind of a splitter for the water

Yes, you can order the gpu block from thermaltake also. I think theres enough tubing that comes with the kit. Be aware though, my gpu waterblock from thermaltake cracked and sprung a leak for no reason.

I'm installing a BigWater SE, and a Thermaltake Aquarius waterblock--I got both from ZipZoomFly.

You won't need a splitter, unless you want to go that route. I'm plumbing mine in series.

Hey BloodElf, which model gpu waterblock do you have? I have the Aquarius 2, if I recall correctly, copper with a clear top.

Do you need a GPU block? If not, you should spend an extra 20 bux and get that Gigabyte W/C kit (1/2in tubing) which is suppost to be very good. Out of the 2 you posted, the TT, I just don't trust Kingwin W/C parts.

Do you have a spare 5.25" drive bay? If so, you might like the newer Bigwater SE It has a bay reservoir, *and* you can put the pump in the bay too, which makes for a compact install. It's $115 at ZipZoomFly:

It doesn't have a GPU waterblock, but you could add one later. You might have to do that regardless, given your price constraint.

Hope this helps.
