The heatercore is great. You can get them cheaper at Autozone ($20). For the tubing you can get it for $.40 at homedepot. That is what I use. The larger the resivoir, the better the performance... I made a custom resivoir with a 1 Gal Rubbermade food jar and some barbs (used a dremel tool and garden hose gaskets). That will perform better but it won't fit in most cases. You can also get the Apogee cheaper using Snerps link:

I have the Apogee, you do not have to remove the motherboard for some AMD processors, but you do for others. I don't know. But it is a great block.

If you are looking for some fans for your heatercore try these:

they are a little load, but they work great!

You setup is overall good, expect idle in the high 20s or low 30s and a load in the high 30s or low 40s.

Go with the UV tubing and then get distilled water and anti-freeze. Check the color of your antifreeze so that it matches the color of your tubing.

Yes that does the same thing that the anti-freeze does. It is just more expensive.

Setup looks good. Why no GPU cooling? They benefit greatly from water, like a 20+ C difference from what I've done.

i concur on the gpu cooling, HUGE difference. i am not happy with my homedepot tubing it is very stiff. some people dont like the uv tubing (ugly) havent seen it myself but uv dye is about $10.

It's easier to put the GPU cooler on when you are setting everything up. It's not that hard adding one, but if you do have the money I'd say just do it with the main install.
