I'm tired of hearing my fan on my GPU, so I want to add water cooling. I want to go the route with the best performance/cost ratio. I also want to water cool my cpu and northbridge. My only problem is...I have NO IDEA where to start! What should I look at and everything?? Thanks!!

You willing to spend about $400 to do this? That is what it will cost.

Real no reson to cool your chipset.

Not really about 240 or so add another 80 or 100 buck for the gpu
rad comparison


Waterblock


Example
standard set up
1/2 inch barbs for everything

mcp655 pump or mcp355(will need a top to use 1/2 barbs)

or
the MCP355 is great

get a top. The top will maximize the efficiency of the pump

Chipsets don't generally need water-cooling as they can function at high temperatures with ease. Unless your board is notorious for having a very hot running chipset, I wouldn't worry about watercooling it as the few chipset blocks that I've seen all have small barbs so add a bit of restriction to the flow in your loop.

Definitely take Juggalo's advice too. There are 2 reasons for this.
1. He is mega pro and isn't the H2O editor for no reason

2. Our builds have almost the same name, so he's a pretty cool guy

BIG THANKS Juggalo!!! That's exactly what I've needed to know! All I gotta do now is save up for it. Once more, THANKS!
