Ok so im cheap and i only wanna sepnd under £100 on WC preferably £90. So all i wanna cool is my cpu (skt478) and im not looking for an ultra setup im just looking for something better than, well lets say the TT Bigwater
.

1/2 Tubing is a must i think as without it im limited on upgrades. I live in the Uk and so it can only come from uk shops. And i would like it if it could all fit into my case if not then ok.

If it is not possible then tell me dont just leave me hanging.

Thanks guys.

Water cooling is not something you want to go cheap on. Your perforcance gain from a cheap water cooling setup is minimal at best against a Big T... But the cost increase and risks are much higher. Either do a quality setup, or air cool. That is my humble opinion.

this is the best bang for your buck.. Yes it's a kit, but the price is really good for what you get... Umm, it is called "GIGABYTE GH-WIU01" if you can find it in the UK..

Yeah you can get that gigabyte cooler over here its £80

Well i have a review of that gigabyte cooler in a custom pc mag and they said that it was terrible and that the gigbyte G-power was better,HSF, and it cost £50 less. So im a bit hesitant over that.

If you know someone in the states you should have them put a system together and ship it to you. It might be cheaper, and you could get stuff from Danger Den.l

It depends on what you want to buy here. I'd say pick up the Swiftech Apogee cpu block, a Danger Den MAZE4 gpu block, Res or T line setup, and anything else that doesn't weigh much (fittings and whatnot). I don't know if you can get a Pontiac 77' Bonneville Heatercore over there or not, but if you can buy it there. I would also get your tubing and pump there too, because I don't know if you can convert our power setup or not. I found a great deal on a used Hydor L35 pump, they were asking $30 shipped in US, but again I don't know about the power thing.
