short of making your own, about $125.00 is the cheapest you will get (the aquastealth2 kit from becooling)

Actually, the only place where you can find a system under $100 is becooling.safeshopper.com under the original Aquastealths. There are four options all under a hundred, the main difference is that your are getting a tupperware container instead of an aluminum resovoir and if you truly are looking for the cheapest complete system then it'll have an aluminum block. Hope this helps all you budget minded overclockers.

Try the Orignial Aquastealth at BeCooling. It's $84 dollars for the aluminum waterblock and $100 for the copper block.

I built my system for about $60. Only thing I'd do different is use silicone tubing next time. Much easier to work with since it's more flexable.

If ya want one, I offered right after I made it, to build anyone else one for the cost of parts and shipping. I really enjoyed making it. (I sold 2)

Hey that sounds like an awesome deal!
Do you have a website and/or will you accept payment via Paypal?

If you check out the evaporative cooler on the main page of the forum I think you'll find a good idea that may be an improvement over what most people are using. Based on my calculations you could go as low as

PVC $15
Sealant $4
Tubing $10
Pump $40-140
shower head $19-35
fittings $10

If you go the low end here your looking at $100. You should check it out, I'm leaning way towards that myself

I notice the radiator is very similar to the one sold by Leufkens for about $35. It's kinda big, where did you mount it? Also what pump are you using?

Thanks
