Help on water cooling case - My first W/C Rig!


I'm thinking of going into water cooling, I want to overclock my P4 2.53 to 3.2GHz and I've been told air just wont suck it. This is the only viable place where I can get my stuff from - http://www.extremecooling.co.uk/ ...As its the only shop if its nature near to myself, I like the Look of the Koolance PC2-601 case with the Koolance CPU-200G Block, would the CPU-200G Block be as effective as the Swiftech MCX462-U block? Please help! I;ve NEVER done any case modding before I really aint much good at practical stuff like cutting, drilling, bending and anything along them lines! Like I said before, I stress that http://www.extremecooling.co.uk/ is the ONLY viable place for me to buy mystuff - Unless you can suggest a >>>UK<<< online shop. Thanks

I need extra help now! They stoped doing the Koolance PC2-601 case! Darn it! it was sooo pretty too!... Please help ... any online UK shops to sugest - please??

http://www.pclincs.co.uk - Just looked at that site - Whats the Swiftech Q-power case like? Im looking for Price too - So if you can EASILY construct a home made rig for LESS that would be perfect - If it performs better of course.

And 'bleeding' whats this?? cant you just leave the water in there for ever? Do you have to replace it etc...? Its sounding easier just to go with an air cooling solution - plug it and forget.... Please help

If you have a choice between the Q-power and the koolance go with the qpower, here is an article comparing them: http://overclockers.com/articles544/
To get a feel for how to construct your own read through the watercooling section on the main site, and you can see how expensive it can be, and how cheap it can be

I've already seen that artical, however it is of no help - they only review it with the old CPU-100 water block, why? i do not know. hence I'm asking on the forums!

Even with the new block, the qpower still beats it. In my opinion, it is much better made, and they use much nicer parts.
