Im thinking of switching to water cooling, ill b making my own setup rather that buy a kit if i do decide to change. But im just want to get a few things straight.

1) Is what ive read a hetercore being refernced to the same as a radiator?

2) Would a radiator from say a motorbike b anygood?

3) What sort of pump would need to be used im guessing a submersible pond pump of some sort??

4) Am i right in thinking this
First i need a waterblock of some sort for the cpu, A radiator with fans on to cool the water and some sort of small tank to submers the pump into.

Also could there be a few pictures posted of you're setups. Any info much appreciated.
