so here lies the question. which is more efficient at cooling, 1/4" or 1/2"? i know it would probably have to do with the pump and all, but which in general is more efficient?

Danger Den D5 (MCP655) is the best pump out there right now.

For the CPU block, you cant do better than a Swiftech Apogee.

Getting a reservoir is a matter of personal preference. You don't even NEED one. Just get what will fit your case, there are many to choose.

There are two choices for your radiator: a watercooling radiator made especially for water cooling, or a car heatercore. The benefits of a heatercore is that it is a LOT cheaper and, in most cases, yields better performance. You will have to do a bit of modding to work with it though.

Id reccomend what i have in my sig

works wonderfully

you might not need a tripple radiator though

i like having the reservoir because it is alot easier to fill and is more efficiant IMO

Oh BTW the apogee is great becasue it preforms very well at any flow rate unlike the storm that needs high flow

yeah. i also heard that after a while you need to refill the resevoir.. does the stuff evaporate after a while? if so, how long does it take? (how long can it last without it being refilled?)

Yes, that's what it is. I forgot


Are you going to mod your case at all to accomodate for a radiator?
