Cool Thinkin its about time to WC, but i need help.


Ok Ive decided that I want to watercool my rig, but Im not one to make my own set-up. So Ive been lookin around at different kits and I found this Evercool Kit for 150 bucks @ Frys. http://www.evercool.com/kor/pro_am.htm#
Its the EC-WC-101. Is it any good? Or do you guys recommend anything else?
Well any help would be appreciated.

Picking your own parts instead of getting a kit is very easy.

Go to www.d-tekcustoms.com

Radiator- http://www.dtekcustoms.com/product.asp?0=205&1=228&3=17

Waterblock- http://www.dtekcustoms.com/product.asp?0=204&1=209&3=11 TC4. The Little River White Water block will be appearing soon on this site, its the best performing block to date, but you'll pay more for it than for a TC4

Pump- http://www.dtekcustoms.com/product.asp?0=206&1=229&3=28 this is the Ehiem 1048, for more flow get a 1250 (cost a little more $$)

Tubing- http://www.dtekcustoms.com/product.asp?0=207&1=217&3=94 Get more feet than you think you will need, that way you have extra if you need it (like if you cut a piece of tubing to short or something)

T-Fitting to fill/bleed system- http://www.dtekcustoms.com/product.asp?0=207&1=218&3=70

Water Additive- http://www.dtekcustoms.com/subcatmfg...1=233&2=-1&6=1 (check out the link in my sig for a review of different additives)

The last thing you need is a 120mm fan, I didn't provide a link to d-tekcustoms for the fan cause I don't really like any of the fans they sell. I would suggest a Panaflo L1A 120mm fan, if you choose not to get one of the fans they sell.

for the fan i would recommend the Chrome plated fan at SVC.com
it has the same noise level (30dbA) while giving about 11CFM more and with the same price tag. (it gives 80CFM vs Panaflos 68.9CFM)
