Welcome to water cooling.

Read lots then have fun with it!

Agreed. Those companies seem to be the best, most reliable and most popular.

Reading up on the subject is very important. A friend of mine recently wrote up an article for my site about watercooling, here it is:
The Basics of Watercooling.
Also, just a few days back our very own JoeC wrote a nice article about waterblock selection, check it out:
Waterblock Buying Hints.

Don't forget to check out the stickies! Good luck!

Hey, if you want to have a lot of fun and learn a bunch in the process, read up on making your own by assembling all your own parts and modding your case. It's worth it, if you like to build stuff on your own. And it will generally work at least as well, but usually better, than the ready-made kits. I am really happy with my results and how cool and stable the rig runs overclocked.
