To mount it externally, it depends if you want to put it on your case or somewhere else... Please be more specific...
Well, on top of the case would work fine, or really anywhere. I have plenty of space around my case to mount it, so long as I don't have to drill holes in the wall.

You looked at the pump/res dimensions.

RS360: 121x35x397mm (WxDxH)

Its just a fan size bigger...I looked at the dimensions and something didn't makes sense lol

@giganews35 Thank you for the input. Needless to say I am looking at the 360 kit. Being a gamer I'd like to overclock and watercool my video cards more but at the same i feel like they are not worth the work or effort.

So basically i want to push my CPU to 4Ghz and my NB to 3Ghz with watercooling. So I might get a mobo chipset cooler to go along with it.

Externally on your case, you could make do with a radbox.

something like this.

They sell brackets as well iirc...on FrozenCPU.

The RS360 is a great rad, but remember it would require higher speed fans.
The RX's are designed to make do with low/medium speed fans.

Honestly, unless your NB gets pretty hot overcooked I would advise against adding chipsets to the loop. It will most likely not help you overclock and add some heat to the loop.

Prime95 or stress test a decent overclock now and see where you sit with temps then decided what needs to be cooled more.

Crabby654, I'd go with the Rasa 360 kit. I was in your same position a month or two ago, complete beginner to watercooling, still kinda am lol, and ended up choosing the Rasa 240 kit. I'm really happy with it for cooling my CPU, does wonders. However, I wish I would have gotten the 360 because it's definitly more "future proof", easier to expand on. Say if you want to cool your gpu, etc. I would be pushing the limits of the 240 kit if I even tried to cool my GPU. Spend the extra 100 or so to get the 360 kit, you wont regret it! Trust me, I wish I had gone with the 360, now after upgrading my graphics card i want to watercool, but cannot.

All in all, go with the Rasa 360 lol, a great kit!

AMD Phenom II x4 955BE (overclocked 3.8Ghz-1.45v, Northbridge 2.8Ghz-1.4v)
eVGA GTX 460SE (overclocked to 820Mhz core)
Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H (rev 2.1)
CM Hyper 212+ (my CPU fan)

Currently with full load my CPU/NB run at roughly 55-57c and around 37ish idle. I'd like to overclock my CPU to 4.0Ghz but when I do that I am hitting a temps as high as 62c on full load because I need to up the voltage to to 1.5v.

I am a heavy gamer (mostly MMO's) and I would love to get into the world of watercooling, it seems fairly fun and very interesting.

My question is this: Basically I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on a "starter" kit that is easily expandable. For example, I'd like to start out with a CPU block and then maybe add a Chipset block(?) or a GPU block in the future (I'd rather OC a newer video cards that can actually take good overclocking).

Any input would be much appreciated! Thank you in advance! :
I have the same problems on my sig rig, just cannot do 4ghz with H50 cooler, tried everything except I may try new better TIM im currently using As5.

What if you drop the NB to around 2600 and lower the voltage a tad? or does that defeat the object? my cpu is same needs 1.5V for 4ghz then it will just overheat

Well he's looking at a kit, so it comes with sufficient fans..but good point they are louder than low speed fans, if he's going for a super quite system.

@giganews - You are probably right, the NB temp seemed like it matched the CPU temp, but maybe HWMonitor was being silly. GPU might be a better idea to cool.

@v639dragoon - I think I will go with the 360, i think its only 20 dollars more.

@moonmanas - That would defeat the purpose a little. I want to OC as much as I can with what I have at the moment...and then when I get watercooling!

Hmm... Interesting... Then I'd probably want to get a RS360 kit, seeing as how I want to WC my GPU as well.

I wonder if there's a waterblock for the Galaxy GTX 460... I think it's honestly the loudest part of my system. Folding can be annoying at times, but oh well.
