Ok, so i've been thinking of going back to the watery side (muahahahaha), but i've been away from it for a while now, and i feel alittle out of the loop (no pun intended). <br />
<br />
SO, what are the best i can get, keeping total cost around 200 (i want it to cool my cpu primarily, possibly my chipset but it would need to be and EXTREMELY low profile water block, because of my video card):<br />
<br />
CPU block: <a href="http://xoxide.com/swiftech-apogee-water-block.html" target="_blank">http://xoxide.com/swiftech-apogee-water-block.html</a><br />
12V pump (with standard molex): <a href="http://xoxide.com/swiftech-mcp355-pump.html" target="_blank">http://xoxide.com/swiftech-mcp355-pump.html</a><br />
really good 2x120mm heatercore: <a href="http://www.dangerdenstore.com/product.php?productid=2&cat=85&page=1" target="_blank">http://www.dangerdenstore.com/produc...&cat=85&page=1</a><br />
2 fairly silent 120 fans:<br />
coolant:<br />
reservoir: <a href="http://xoxide.com/thermaltake-aquabay-m3-reservoir.html" target="_blank">http://xoxide.com/thermaltake-aquabay-m3-reservoir.html</a><br />
<br />
<br />
links are optional, but highly appreciated <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick out tounge caps" class="inlineimg" />

Welcome back! <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />
My opinion for a killer loop:<br />
Swiftech <a href="http://www.frozencpu.com/products/2033/ex-blc-244/Swiftech_APOGEE_Extreme_Performance_Universal_CPU_Waterblock.html?tl=g30c85s141" target="_blank">Apogee</a> CPU block - $50<br />
Swiftech <a href="http://www.petrastechshop.com/laddcwpeddto.html" target="_blank">MCP355</a> w/ Petratech Top - $99 - Expensive, but the best there is<br />
Black Ice <a href="http://www.dangerdenstore.com/product.php?productid=221&cat=86&page=1" target="_blank">GTS</a> or <a href="http://www.dangerdenstore.com/product.php?productid=2&cat=85&page=1" target="_blank">Xtreme</a> 240 Radiator - $45<br />
Aerocool <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16835129246" target="_blank">Xtreme</a> Turbine Fans - 32db 90CFM - $11 each (x2)<br />
Coolant - Just use some distilled water mixed with a little anti-freeze - $1<br />
<br />
Total: $217<br />
You'll still need some tubing but that wouldn't be more than $10<br />
<br />
<br />
If $200 is a hard budget cap, switch the pump to a <a href="http://www.dangerdenstore.com/product.php?productid=175&cat=23&page=1" target="_blank">D5</a> Not quite as good but still revered by many as the one of the best water cooling pumps available.<br />
<br />
<br />
Hope that helps

wat i meant by lowprofile CHIPSET, is that the barbs will have to stick out from the side, as opposed to on top, i think just about anything where the barbs are centered will not work

</div> Yeah you dont even really need to WC the NB...A good fan on it should be enough.....Are you wanting 3/8 or 1/2 for it? I would go with 1/2 fitting and use the 7/16 Masterkleer on it...Easier to work with and almost as good flow....The T-Take res will kill your flow, it's restrictive...I would go with the DD bay res....I know it ain't as sexy looking though...<img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

for the chipset cooling heres ur best bet on ur dfi.<br />
<br />
1. dont w/c ur chipset stupid/waste of time. get an Evercool VC-RE on it (-10 more)<br />
<br />
2. Get an MAZE4-GPU on that X1900XT instead.

well the problem is, i had to pop off the fan on my dfi nb chip for my vcard to fit in there, so right now, all there is a metal plate with outer fins only.<br />
<br />
im thinking of this:<br />
