Also is this a good kit for price.
http://www.bigfootcomputers.com/Merc...ry_Code=510.25
Specs are DFI Ultra-D mobo and a X2 3800+ cpu and 2gb mushkin pc4000 ram, 500watt frotron blue strom psu and 7800gt

What case will you be using?
Will you have any spare 5.25 drive bays (optical drive bays)?
Do you want it to amount exactly to $310, or a little over?
I will list what will be the best without the misc stuff (should not amount to more than $30)
Pump: MCW 655
CPU Block: Apogee
GPU Block: DD Maze 4
Radiator: BI Pro 2
That is about $310.
You will need 1/2" tubing, a 1/2" T fitting, clamps, and 2 120mm fans.

Pump - Swiftech MCP350 = $100
Resevoir - Swiftech MCRES-1000 = $25

Which comes to around: $340

And like Sun said...you still need to buy tubing, fittings, fans, and clamps.


You can make a heatercore fit inside or on your case. I'd be alot cheaper to do.

Don't buy a chipset waterblock. Chipsets don't get hot enough to benefit from watercooling and they reduce flow.

Just for clarification, you should buy a GPU block (On the graphics card.), not a chipset block. (On the motherboard.)
GPU blocks are usually high flow and very free of pressure drops. They also do an excellent job at what they do.
