Thanks born ... I wasn't certain of that chipset. As far as the 680i/nvidia chipset ... hell yes you need NB cooling !

Don't get T-Take WC'ing gear its a waste of money, high end air will cool better....If you want a kit this is a decent one..If you want custom we can help you put one together..Kit or custom you have to put it together your self..

Decent kit, I would get a 360 rad with it instead of the 240 they will let you do that there...

...D-Tek Kit

Good stuff to read...

Truly you don't need to watercool your RAM, it will simply add more heat to your loop and then increase your overall temps, invest in some aftermarket heatspreaders, or cooling solutions, I personally use the stock heat spreaders and an OCZ XTC. Same with NB and chipset, simply invest in good air coolers, I personally Suggest the TT extreme spirit IIs but your website only has the first version... so try these CM solutions
http://www.ifocus.co.nz/Cooling+Solu...+Blue+Ice.html
And finally Ira-K is right TT is not very good for water cooling, they use 3/8" tubing at max 1/4" usually and that restrains the flow, overall the investment is not worth it and if you setup your own custom cooling kit the performance would be FAR better...20 degrees even...

hmmmm....

i suggest custom also. build your own! but i disagree with the NB not being necessary!

if your going for OC, then cpu/NB cooling in one loop is desired, IMHO.... i used to have the gfx card in the loop also, but since my last build i excluded it in the loop, i didnt see it as nec. and it cleans the loop up alot.

no need for ram/HDD water cooling, stick to the CPU/NB for a good OC machine.

Something like this would make a decent rig..

fstfrddy here on the forum makes really nice CPU blocks they are what I use...

...Stinger Water Blocks

Or a Fuzion..

...Fuzion CPU Block

Pump

...D-5

Rad...

...360 GTX

Rad fans..Use a shroud on your rad push pull if you have room..

...Panaflo 86.5CFM

Tubing...I like this you use it on 1/2" barbs it flows about as well as full 1/2" and is a little more compact..

...7/16x5/8" Masterkleer

Or full 1/2"x3/4"..

...1/2x3/4" Masterkleer

Res or just use a T-Line..

... Danger Den Single 5 1/4" Bay Reservoir

I'll leave you a cleaning PDF that might help answer some of your questions...
