Under $100? gonna be close...<br />
<br />
Swiftech Apogee $50<br />
Little Giant PES-170 small pond pump - $25 <br />
Tupperware Reservior - $1<br />
'77 Bonneville Heatercore - $22<br />
Tubing - 2.50<br />
Fans - $8<br />
<br />
Without any shipping all this would come to just under $110, the pump, core, and tubing can be bought locally

Well if ur going WC, shoot for a good one, otherwise air should be your best choice. For $100 you can't have temp higher than BT/Zalman 9500/SI-128

</div> Look for some of Snerps post's here in the WC section, in his sig is a guide for building a good WC rig..But it's going to run you at least $150.00 thats how much it's going to cost for a good rig...Something that will cool well and be easily upgradable.....If you cant spend that much now just save a little more money untill you can...

With an apogee, a bonny heatercore(heat exchanger), and an AC pump, you can get temps comparable to a swiftech or dangerden kit. It's not gonna be pretty, but a pond pump in the bottom of a tubberware res will get it done.

The pond pump is 170gph, a mcp655 pumps 317gph, but a mcp350 only pumps 92gph for comparison.<br />
<br />
It should be enough to get the job done, hard to beat for $25

</div> I quess that would work just for the CPU...I bet it's got a real low head though and wouldn't be any good for multiple blocks...Have you tried it on multible blocks....I like the 18W Laing DDC with an after market top, in my case the Radiical Turbo-Top..I'm getting around 600lph and 20'ft head...I still think he would be better off waiting and getting a better pump....But he did ask what he could get for $100.00 didn't he...If you have tried that on multible blocks please let me know for future reference....

I own one of the little-giant pumps a 120, but it was being used for something very different than w/c.<br />
<br />
It seems to have plenty of kick though, pushes water from the ground to waist level with no problem. It's just a noisy little selenoid <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
The Liang pumps are great, like the D5, but they will cost you almost $100 alone.

Actually it's very easily possibl, if you mean build, no just buy and put together...<br />
<br />
If i understand WCers correctly, all you might need to buy is a pond pump, some clear hosing, some WC disinfectant and a filter!<br />
<br />
Now, this could end up a disaster as well,but if you are inclined towards this, msg back, many don't like me talking b/c i am more of a "build it yourself" guy

</div> Thanks for info....That sounds like it would work fine with a low restriction WB like you recommended, the Apogee....Yeah good pumps are expensive and really a rip-off considering you can buy a 1hp motor for what one of them costs..

</div>Ya, or a small lawnmower or microwave heh.<br />
<br />
The tradeoff with the Liang D5's price is that it makes pretty much no noise, unlike just about any pump that will run on AC
