Well, I am taking the plung!! (get it plung) :chriso: I am going to water cooling!! I've got the radiator on the way, it is a dual fan black ice. Here is the rest of the stuff I am looking at:

Mounting Bracket

Pump

CPU Block

Fill Port

T-Line

Clamps (about 15 of these)

Tubing (about 10 feet)

Well, that is about all I can think of!! What do you guys think, am I missing anything important? I am not sure what fans to get, I want them to be quite so if you got any suggestions let me know!! :headset:

Unfair MO! What was in the PM? In one thread you were pretending? to sell you W/C system. Are you pro or con when it comes to W/C?

Looks like good picks for a custom system so far chriso! :headset:

Well, I got it all done and put back together. It is working great!! The install took a long long time, worked on it like all day. But taking your time is worth it when doing a project like this so I highly recommend it!!! Not a single leak!! It was a lot of fun and I think it turned out well!!

Here are some pics and a movie for your viewing pleasure!! :scara:

Thank you to all that have advised me over these last few weeks!! I know I was probably a pain with all my silly questions but I was nervous doing this. Again, thank you. :bluerip:

Looks good Chris, only one potential problem I can see, an that is the rad sitting at the PSU exaust, that will potentially heat that up alittle.

Yup, I thought of that as well. But nothing I could do to get around it. Just have to deal with the slightly higher temps.

Looks great Chris! :yahoo: :rofl:

Well done buddy.......awesome work :scara:

I would have mounted the rad using the TOP fan though......so rad is sitting down from PSU......there looks plenty room for the VGA cable etc if you had.

Good job! :bluerip:
