Waterblock? Was thinking of getting Mcw-462-UH with 1/2 inch input. Want something that will go from intel to amd platform if need be. No idea on this one because there are so many?

Heatercore. Ordered a chevette heater core on autozone. seems to be a favorite here.

Pump. Danner 350 gph

clearflex60 1/2 hose

reservoir: rubbermaid container?

I am interested in doing it right the first time and not wasting money but getting good performance also.

I really have no idea what block to get i guess this is where my question really lies.
I have 1600xp system with 512mb ram. would like to get a
STABLE decent overclock out of it but as worried about this as noise. Thanks have been browsing for a long time and finally decided to register

you don't really need a res a lot of people do inline, where you fill up the system through a fill line. Also, on the waterblock ahve you looked at any of dangerden's and d-tek's stuff? The d-tek [email protected] and the d-tek tc-4 seem to be top performing blocks.

I would stay away from poly topped blocks. They have a tendency to crack. Some of the best performing blocks are the TC4, the Spiral, Maze3... take your pick.

If a poly top is done right it'll be fine - they're just harder to manufacture that's all.

Welcome to the forums btw :)

I wouldn´t go with the swift block. It´s very nice but i think is not cheap for a chamber block. i woluld pick a maze or a dtek al top block and dont forget the shroud...
be happy
