Ok, well my system has been overheating and the lovely 4 fans I have are starting to get a little annoying, so I am deciding to water cool my system. I have been looking around and here is what I think I might get.

My System:

AMD 3500+
evga motherboard - http://www.pcper.com/specs.php?p=MB&id=326
evga e-GeForce 7800 GT
Thermaltake Lanfire Case

WC Parts:

Koolance VID-200-L06 VGA Water Block - http://www.xoxide.com/koolance-vid-200-l06.html

Danger Den - NVIDIA Kit - http://www.dangerdenstore.com/product.php?productid=223&cat=2&page=1

Danger Den Dual 3 1/2" Floppy Bay Reservoir - http://www.dangerdenstore.com/product.php?productid=54&cat=27&page=1

Swiftech MCB-120 Rev. 2 Radbox Radiator/fan housing - Black - http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/mciraho.html

If you guys have any recommendations or advice or anything please feel free to post. I need all the help I can get. Thanks!

well, by buying that kit and all those other parts. you just bought 2 reservoirs...

if you could care less about cost. it should be ok. but if you build it youself you can save like.. 40 bucks easy.


but to cool both a CPU and a VGA you should get a double rad.

I agree, 120.2 for the rad would keep things nice and cool.

go to http://www.jab-tech.com/ and buy the parts their. you'll save a lot of money.

i suggest this

Swiftech Apogee
MCP655 pump
7/16 masterkleer tubing. (or 1/2 inch)
Black Ice GT dual Rad (make sure you get 1/2 inch barbs)

then get some hose clamps. a t-line. and then your good to go and you'll have a LOT more money to spend on other things.



by buying used parts and stuff for my w/c build i estimated i saved 70 bucks over a w/c kit, AAANNDD its better because its a tripple rad instead of a double rad.

Are you sure about that Koolance video card block? Don't those have aluminum in them? Check out what dangerden has to offer.
