In the near future I am going to be getting a entirely new computer.

I plan on getting the new AMD 6 core processor that is supposed to be released next month.

I would like to start getting all my 'Ducks' in a row with my water cooling loop. I don't know where to start, and I have no clue on what I need. So I have come here for some help putting a CPU loop together.

As for a budge, nothing is set in stone. I would like nice things, and I would like them to look nice as well.

Keep in mind, I don't need the most extreme items out there. I simply want to make my case quiet.

Thank you - Obz

*Update*

Here is what I have so far. I kept out the misc items such as tubing and distilled water. I'll worry about all that when I figure out what case I am going to buy.

I am not 100% sure if these are quality items so please let me know if you would change something.

For my CPU block I chose the Apogee GTZ waterblock.

And to go along with that I chose 'Swiftech MCR320 Drive Triple 120mm Radiator / Reservoir w/ MCP350 Pump'

Basically, you need: a water block, reservior, radiator, pump, misc (fittings, tubing, clamps, coolant/distilled water) and fans for the radiator.

Are you going to use your P182 case for this watercooling setup? It will do but it is not the most watercooling user friendly case around. I suggest at least a 240 radiator (a 360 is even better) which might have a hard time to be fit inside your P182 case. This point might be important to you as you prefer ''look nice'' (ie hiding the rad inside the case?).

Swiftech triple rad with integrated radiator
external rad mounting to hang it off the back of your pc
3 Scythe gentle typhoons and a fan controller
MCP655 Vario
1/2 barbs
1/2 tubing with worm drives
Enzotech Sapphire cpu block

Or get a few single ones to mount on the inside(mounting on outside would yeild better).

You may need a bigger case than your P182 i tried fitting a 360mm rad in my old P183 and boy was it a mission.

You will want the themochill 360mm rad as it likes low cfm fans and is quiet.

Also a Apogee GTZ will be good for your CPU

A ek 250mm res

either a D5 vario or a MCP355 with a XSPC top on

Half inch ID tubing and chose the colour

run distilled water with pt nuke which is from petra's

This is actually part of the fun, ie handpicking and matchmaking each component.

I really like what you have put together. Do you know if those 5.25 bay's are hard to fill?
