I'm looking to get a watercooling setup to cool my CPU, GPU and Northbridge. So far, I've been looking at the OCPC stuff -

Atlantis Rev3 CPU Waterblock (http://www.overclockedpc.co.uk/prod...products_id=111)
Atlantis Chipset Waterblock (http://www.overclockedpc.co.uk/prod...products_id=181)
Atlantis GF4 Waterblock (http://www.overclockedpc.co.uk/prod...products_id=101)
"The Tube" Reservoir (http://www.overclockedpc.co.uk/prod...&products_id=96)
"The Deep" Rev2 Radiator (http://www.overclockedpc.co.uk/prod...&products_id=85)
Eheim 1048 Pump (http://www.overclockedpc.co.uk/prod...&products_id=41)

I've read good things about these kits on www.coolhardware.co.uk, but can't find many reviews on the big sites. Does anyone have anything good or bad to say about them???

I also like the look of the Koolance Exos (http://www.hardocp.com./article.html?art=Mzc2), as space is at a premium in my mid-tower case!

Anyone used this??

Thanks in advance

The only problem I might face is fitting it all inside my case!!

Isn't the Eheim 1250 quite a bit bigger??

I've got a lian-li PC65 case.

The Eheim 1048 is 147 x 75 x 118mm or 5.8 x 3 x 4.7 inches (LxWxH)

Wheras the 1250 is 180 x 95 x 120mm or 7.1 x 3.8 x 4.7 inches (LxWxH)

You'd probably be better off with the 1250 if you can fit it in.

Oh and BTW, Koolance don't exactly have the best reputation - i'd definately go for the OCPC stuff if I were you.

I'm in the Uk and don't want to have to pay stupid shipping costs.

Is this available from any UK shops?
